It was worth listen

I really took a lot from this book in terms of understanding my own values, and how to apply the concepts in my own life. The Minimalists are my gurus!

Good positive book.

I can't believe how hard it is to throw stuff out. I have rid myself of over half my stuff and I still have further to go. It opened my eyes to how useless a lot of purchases are.I love the honesty, down to earth way to tell their story. It has inspired me to become a minimalist.

I listen this book so truly

I first listened the documentary, then had to get the book. In the past week, I've already started my path on this journey, which I feel will be very rewarding and positive. Very exciting one.

Good self-help book.

This book is great for anyone who wants to have a 'simpler' life with less stuff. I had listened the author's previous book. I highly recommend both of his books to anyone looking to declutter their homes and minds.

Informative book.

This book is an excellent summation of much of what he has shared previously but with even more material added. It is very beneficial to have all this information in one book that can be listen and then used as a reference over time.

Everything written in this book makes sense

This was a great book! I wasn't super familiar with the whole 'minimalist' thing before listening this book, but I feel like this was a fantastic introduction to it!

Perfect for Beginners

This was one of the best books I have listened on minimalism in the home! It addresses some of the obvious, but also digs a little deeper into the "why" and "what" to do. Where to begin can be the hardest step, but this book has you inspired from the beginning to jump into the declutter process.

Fantastic and amazing

This book is an easy listen and gives great advice on how to unclutter and downsize a home. I have been struggling to do this for several years and this book is a good guide and motivator to do this.
