Publisher's Summary

Happiness and freedom through having less and embracing it.

I am a minimalist in a lot of ways, and I think everyone should have at least the basic knowledge of what it contains. It's liberating, destressing, and more efficient to adopt attitudes and habits of minimalism. In this book you will find, among others:

  • How happiness is linked directly to minimalism
  • Ways exercise self-control and emotional peace by consuming and cluttering less
  • Where minimalism comes from and how it's different from simply being tidy
  • How minimalism leads to financial freedom and more time and money
  • Thoughts and messages of living the minimalist lifestyle the right way
  • And much more!

    "Love the Minimalist Lifestyle Concept."

    An eye opener for me on a minimalist lifestyle.... Things just become stressful when you have to take care of them. I have also enrolled in his course "Uncluttered". It will be a long process but I believe in just 10 months, I have changed my lifestyle for the better!! I've listen other "cleaning" and "organizing" books, but this one explains smaller, slower steps to create new habits that will lead to a better lifestyle. I would recommend the AudibleVersion though. I ordered and i will enjoy it!!!

    Story
    "Interesting perspective with genuine intentions."

    I have been a fan of living on less for about five years. I have listened many books and blogs relating to the topic, so new ideas and perspective is hard to come by. However, this book was a breath of fresh air. I read the book cover to cover hardly putting it down. The author did an excellent job of inspiring the reader to take action. So much so that I have gone through nearly every room in my house trying to further minimise an already minimized home. I did find the book to be more on the religious side then I am typically used to. With that said I admire the authors intentions and appreciate his openness to other views. Excellent listen!

    "Short minimalist book straight to the point"

    The minimal lifestyle book remains true to the minimalist principles without any unnecessary information or fluff. It was a great investment of time for me and can be influential and inspirational for anyone who want a more minimalist lifestyle. The author is also giving away another one of his books for free which I plan to listen again soon. Minimalism x2

    "Nice and efficient!"
    Any additional comments?

    If you have never considered more simple living and often feel stressed and or not completely satisfied with life and are currently trying to decide if you should buy this book or not, go for it. Life is an experiment and it is hard to know what works before you have tried. In general people are way too attached to things, needs and old ways of doing things, and challenging those beliefs every now and then should be taught in school!

    Any additional comments?

    I love this book because it reminds me of my father who has been a minimalist for a very long time. If you will think about the principles in this book and use them in various parts of your life, you will definitely gain more personal freedom and time to focus on the people and experiences that are important to you.

    "Open your mind."

    Minimal lifestyle has inspired me to improve my life in so many ways. This book is a smart small tool like a compass to the minimalist direction of living with less and being more.

    if you're constantly finding yourself saying, "I want this, I want to do that..." this book might be able to offer you some guidance. It offers simple, clear guidelines for analyzing the things in your life, and cutting through the arbitrary stuff to focus on what is important.

    This stuck with me and made me think a lot more about my own habits.

    If a life centered on more experiences with the people who you love most is something you want to actively pursue, then purchase this book.

    "Having a light environment and be clutter free...."

    Having a light environment and be clutter free can relaxed the inner you and bring peace in you mind and soul. The book was packed with details and I have learnt a lot from it.

    "Great value!"
    What other book might you compare Minimalism to and why?

    This book is everything you need to know about minimalism. It gives you an amazing explanation what minimalism is and then teaches you how to become a minimalist.


    Which character – as performed by Tommy Jay – was your favorite?

    Great One!!!


    Any additional comments?

    It also contains some great stories which make it one of the most engaging books that I have read in the past month. And on some parts, it is written almost poetically.
