    Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus - The Minimalists - left their six-figure careers, jettisoned many of their material possessions, and started focusing on life's most important aspects. And they never looked back.

    Simplicity: Essays is The Minimalists' fifth book and second essay collection, a follow-up to their bestselling Minimalism: Essential Essays. In the two years since the authors quit their six-figure corporate jobs and embraced simpler lives, they have written more than 200 essays on the subject of simple living.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I'm new to simple living and this isn't a good introduction.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I'd changed the negative frame of the "others", non-simple people. They talk about how you shouldn't watch the same DVD twice. You should have new experiences instead. That's plain silly to me.


    What three words best describe Simon Whistler’s performance?

    Ok.


    Do you think Simplicity needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Ok book as audiobook, but it gets repetitive because of the original blog format. A little effort would have made this one book worth keeping..
