Publisher's Summary

"The Minimalists show you how to disconnect from our conditioned material state and reconnect to our true essence: love people and use things. This is not a book about how to live with less, but about how to live more deeply and more fully." (Jay Shetty, number one New York Times best-selling author of Think Like a Monk)

As seen on the Netflix documentaries Minimalism and Less Is Now

This program is read by the authors

How might your life be better with less?

Imagine a life with less: less stuff, less clutter, less stress and debt and discontent - a life with fewer distractions. Now, imagine a life with more: more time, more meaningful relationships, more growth and contribution and contentment - a life of passion, unencumbered by the trappings of the chaotic world around you. What you’re imagining is an intentional life. And to get there, you’ll have to let go of some clutter that’s in the way.

In Love People, Use Things, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus move past simple decluttering to show how minimalism makes room to reevaluate and heal the seven essential relationships in our lives: stuff, truth, self, money, values, creativity, and people. They use their own experiences - and those of the people they have met along the minimalist journey - to provide a template for how to live a fuller, more meaningful life.

Because once you have less, you can make room for the right kind of more.

A necessary read, delightful & insightful

Brilliant writers sharing the for story of the abundance found in living with less. They don’t shy away from past mistakes, in fact they dive in. I’m ordering this for friends as it provided a lot of value.

Minimalism is a Way of Life

Little did I know when I started to explore Minimalism many years ago with Joshua and Ryan, that I would really be changing my life for the better long term. The minimalist’s latest book does not disappoint. This book is so much more than decluttering your life of excess, it is about keeping a laser focus on what is truly important in life. Its about being the best version of yourself. Beautifully written and heartfelt. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for growth in any area of their life.

Taking it to the next level

After the declutter of your things, perhaps you want to take minimalisme to the next level, and for example want to declutter your relationships, health and find meaning in creativity. This book offers a perspective of that.

I follow the Minimalist, and I have read all their books, so some of the content in this book was not new to me, which was fine, while it had a debt, that I have been longing for. And I loved the openharted hornesty in their personal stories.

Audiobook was great-almost want it in print too.

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book. I love the mindset of the authors and the pointed questions, tips and tricks. I do a lot of this already, but hearing Josh and Ryan acknowledge their imperfections along the minimalist journey made it easy to forgive myself and keep trying to live a better, more intentional, and less cluttered life (mentally and physically).

Another GREAT from the Minimalist Duo!!

Preordered this one and was eager to listen...much more than I had imagined or had expected. Not another minimalist approach to clearing out the house of things but one of living more fully in every aspect of our lives. Shared experiences make it real, and do-able. But the big take away is reflection on what truly matters most in this path we call life. Perpetuates personal reflection and motivation towards our best self. Highly recommend!
