"In the face of today's environmental and economic challenges, doomsayers preach that the only way to stave off disaster is for humans to reverse course: to de-industrialize, re-localize, ban the use of modern energy sources and forswear prosperity.

Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper demonstrates that the tools we need to save the planet aren't to be found in the technologies or lifestyles of the past. Nor must we sacrifice prosperity and human progress to ensure our survival. The catastrophists have been wrong since the days of Thomas Malthus. It's time to ignore the fearmongers. It's time to embrace the innovators and businesses all over the world who are making things Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper because, well, that's what we humans do"--
