According to Barbara Holland, the world is going to seed. In Wasn't the Grass Greener?, she shares thirty-three reasons why life at the end of the millennium just isn't as good as it used to be.

Does anyone care? Hell, yes! In witty, wistful, and original essays, Barbara Holland decries this deplorable result of "progress" and reminds us of the good ol' days, when, yes, everything was better
