‘Offer(s) some fresh perspectives on our desires, what is really driving them and how we take more control’ – Financial Times, Best June Business Books
‘By helping us understand the destructive power of mimetic desire, Burgis offers a way to extricate ourselves and our communities from its harmful grip to form a more human, empathetic, and value-based world’ – Stephen Hanselman, co-author of Lives of the Stoics
‘Luke Burgis has produced the go-to book on this topic’ – Tyler Cowen
‘His prose is punchy. His anecdotes are entertaining. There are even witty cartoons… Part philosophical tract, part self-help guide, Wanting is a thought-provoking book. It’s also a deeply moral one. Like many Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, Burgis wants to create a better world. The ideas he presents, and his suggestions for action, seem to offer a more realistic hope than most’ – Christina Patterson, The Sunday Times
‘It’s not merely a big-idea book, but a careful, brave and loving account of mimetic theory’s transformative power in people’s lives, including his own’ – Matthew Packer, New Zealand Listener
