Publisher's Summary

Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter, and we tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. While excess consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, fancier technology, and cluttered homes, it never brings happiness. Rather, it results in a desire for more. It redirects our greatest passions to things that can never fulfill, and it distracts us from the very lives we wish we were living. But it doesn't have to be this way.

In The More of Less, Joshua Becker helps you:

  • Recognize the life-giving benefits of owning less
  • Realize how all the stuff you own is keeping you from pursuing your dreams
  • Craft a personal, practical approach to decluttering your home and life
  • Experience the joys of generosity
  • Learn why the best part of minimalism isn't a clean house; it's a full life

It's time to own your possessions instead of letting them own you. After all, the beauty of minimalism isn't in what it takes away. It's in what it gives.

    "Good Info, but Needs Different Narrator"

    the information offered in the book is good. however the authors should have chosen someone else to narrate this work. The author's narration is extremely aggravating because he tends to drop the last syllable of most sentences,

    "A wholistic approach to minimalism"

    Mr. Becker does more than provide a simple checklist to become a "minimalist". In this book he shares a belief that minimalism looks different for everyone who chooses to pursue it. Minimalism, like money management and so many other areas of our lives are simple in premise yet difficult in practice in the beginning. This books defines the why before the how and addresses many of the behavioral barriers many will face on the road to a simpler and more intentional life. I have lived a version of this life for some time and can attest to its benefits. This book is well written and well worth the time.

    "Phenomenal!"

    I loved the Christian perspective that this book had on minimalism. I think that a person of any or no religion would also enjoy this book, but I did especially appreciate the application of using your time and saved resources that come from a minamalist lifestyle to pursue dreams including those of service and ministry.

    I listened to this book while decluttering my home and it was very motivating! This was my introduction to Joshua Becker and have since found his blog and enjoy that as well!

    Thank you, Becker family!

    "Helpful book about minimalism"

    I really enjoyed this book because it shares the author's philosophy around minimalism with some discussion of his personal path. I thought his reasoning was very inspiring. His narration wasn't great, but was good enough. It's a bit heavy in Christian parables, which wasn't my favorite part, but I am glad I listened to the book and would recommend it for others who are interested in this lifestyle.

    "Great listening!"

    I truly enjoyed this audio book. It was easy to follow along, and kept my interest. I recently was put onto minimalism through a friend, and with a big move coming up for my family, I thought this would be good timing to get rid of a lot of "junk". The content of the book is great not just for getting rid of physical, tangible items you don't use or need, but for all aspects of life. It's definitely worth the time.

    "Interesting information, covered in religion."
    What would have made The More of Less better?

    Minimalism doesn't require any sort of religion or spirituality, yet this book uses the word "Jesus" more than the word Minimalism.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joshua Becker again?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
