We have teamed up with Collaborative Consumption and Shareable.net to give you the chance to win.

We believe in sharing and recognize that sharing is also an important emerging industry. It’s critical for the future of the environment, the way we mobilize and socialize—ultimately, the way we live and function together as a society.

It’s also an industry that we don’t know much about yet, broadly speaking. That’s why we very excited about the launch of a new book called What’s Mine Is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption by Rachel Botsmanand Roo Rogers, that charts a powerful groundswell called “Collaborative Consumption” — traditional sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting, and swapping redefined through technology and peer communities — that is transforming business, consumerism, and the way we live.

From enormous marketplaces such as eBay and craigslist to emerging sectors such as peer- to-peer lending (Zopa), and car sharing (Zipcar), Collaborative Consumption is reinventing outdated modes of business and reinventing not only what we consume but how we consume.

We have teamed up with Collaborative Consumption and Shareable.net to give you the chance to win a copy of this book before it’s out in September and reinvent the way book reviews are done.

This is your chance to review the book in a highly creative way – in written form, as drawing or visualization, as a video, a Haiku, or whatever way seems interesting to you.  The more creative, unexpected, and shareable your idea for the book review, the better.

If we like your idea, you will win a copy of the book and your review will be showcased on the home page of uncluttered white spaces and Shareable.net along with two other winners.

Our goal:

Reinvent the way book reviews are done and celebrate different points of view on sharing and Collaborative Consumption.
