Actually very good.

On the recommendation of my favourite podcast I thought I would try this book.

I was pleased and relieved to finally find a book on minimalism which is REALISTIC for normal people. Well laid out, easy to follow, very well narrated.

Minimalism

I was introduced to the concept of minimalism by Matt D'Avella and The Minimalists. This was one of the books recommended to me and I can see why. Yes, as the title says, it is concise but in the best possible way.

Minimalism...made realistic

Minimalism...made realistic. So much of the info out there is so damn unrealistic, almost impossible to apply in todays busy world. This book is more modern and speaks to the times we live in today. Really enjoyed this one, best book I have got from audible in a very long time.

Terrific Introduction to Minimalism!

I loved everything about this book. It describes minimalism in such a concise way (apt title!) that I believe I truly understand what it’s about and how to effectively implement it in my life, in a way that will work for me. Including options for putting it into use was extremely helpful. The icing on the cake was Jay Myers’ narration. I can’t imagine a more engaging narrator. I’m now excited to put minimalism into practice.

Great if you have never heard of minimalism

If you have heard the term and don’t know anything about it, this is a great book. However, if you already know what minimalism is, then the info in this book is redundant. Honestly, nothing in this book that you can’t easily find online for free but it doe summarize it all in one book but if you want something quick, short and easy and don’t know a thing about it.
