Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office.

Amazing! I don't usually go for fiction, but this book was spectacular. And perfectly narrated.

Francine Jay pioneered the simple living movement with her self-published bestseller, The Joy of Less. In this fully redesigned and repackaged edition - featuring never-before-seen content - Jay brings her philosophy to more listeners who are eager to declutter. Rather than the "crash diet" approach found in other tidying up books, Jay shares simple steps to cultivate a minimalist mindset and form new habits, paving the way to lasting success.

Loads of content that goes beyond minimizing material belongings and into the underlying motivations of our lives. Yet it weaves it all seamlessly and doesn't feel overstuffed. Even better than Kondo's books, IMHO (which were also good a read), but the two can go well together. I have gone back to several chapters multiple times and taken what's most relevant for me at any given stage.
