On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

What would you focus on if you were no longer weighed down by your unwanted responsibilities? If you want to add something meaningful to your life, like traveling to exotic places, composing beautiful music, or experiencing a new friendship in a foreign language, you will need to figure out how to eliminate other things from your daily routine.

This book is fantastic for anyone looking to de-clutter their life. The author delivers strategies to live more, do what you want to do more and how to do it all with less. His stories of successful implementation of this 'less is more' strategy and candid disclosure of his personal struggles to get there are cleanly delivered in bite-size chunks.

From a full life overhaul to a few minor adjustments and new habits, this book has something for everyone. For those looking for something more in-depth, he backs his strategies up with additional online resources.

As a self help book junkie, not all of the ideas are new but the strategies to get there are clean, methodic and concisely delivered. A++, Mr. Dover.
