Publisher's Summary

Overscheduled. Exhausted. Overwhelmed. Sound familiar? Too familiar? You are living at a velocity you know deep down is unsustainable. Your life is off course - too crammed with busyness, too out of focus. You keep waiting for things to get better, but they never do.

In Simplify, best-selling author Bill Hybels identifies core issues that drive this kind of living and offers action steps to help you live a better way. By eradicating clutter from your inner world, you can experience immediate rewards: greater energy, clearer purpose, richer relationships, and more.

Your life won’t simplify itself. You must act. Isn’t it time?

A must read for those too busy to read

What did you love best about Simplify?

Clear, identifiable action steps that help to simplify life but prioritizing and creating boundaries.

What did you like best about this story?

The action steps at the end of each chapter allow immediate implementation of the topics. I listened to this in tandem with my Kindle so that I could highlight and make notes along the way,

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would not listen to it in one sitting. Stop and reflect at the end of each chapter. Apply and then move on.

I CAN get satisfaction

Kelly Ryan Dolan does a beautiful job expressing the God-inspired thoughts of Bill Hybels. This how-to Simplify book does well at arming Christians with the tools to live more purpose-driven, significant lives.

A must if you need to simplify

I had to listen to it twice. There is so much information. I like the action items at the end of the chapters, it helped to motivate me into do more than listening.

Life Changing

What did you love best about Simplify?

It is practical and applicable immediately! This books is transforming my life!

What does Kelly Ryan Dolan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He reads with so much emotion and so much feeling, its as if he is sitting in front of you and having a conversation with you. It makes it so easy to listen to and also to remember. It is read with intent.

Great Information, Great Performance

If you could sum up Simplify in three words, what would they be?

There are so many great ideas and so much practical advice here. Bill Hybels really knocked this one out of the park. Bill: Thanks for your years of service and for following God's call to lead. I wish I was geographically close enough to be directly involved in your ministry.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Simplify?

"Stupid Rubs Off" is my new mantra!

Any additional comments?

I was a little bit disappointed, initially when I learned Bill Hybells did not perform the recording himself. But I was pleasantly surprised by Kelly Ryan Dolan's delivery. At times I started to believe it was actually Bill's voice. Great job Kelly!
