We are often on a quest for more, giving in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Courtney Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Stress was like gasoline on the fire of her symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent. In this book, Carver shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less - more space, more time, and even more love.

I almost didn’t listen to this book because of the author’s narration. I’m so glad I got past it and listened to it anyways. She is monotone, but you can tell she is trying. I would be nice if someone else narrated it for her. The book was so powerful and I loved the tips. I don’t need to listen to book full of reasons “why it’s good to be a minimalist.” I didn’t feel like that with this book. Her story was powerful and inspirational. Other books I had to keep fast forwarding the blah—this book was the opposite. She captivated me and I will listen again. I highly recommend this book!!
