Book Description

Simplify is a celebration of living more by owning less. Written by Joshua Becker, who inspires hundreds of thousands of people on his personal blog, this is a book that calls for the end of living lives seeking and accumulating more and more possessions by highlighting the enjoyment of living with less.

Three years ago, his typical, suburban family of four made the decision to minimize their possessions, declutter their home, and simplify their lives. In so doing, they discovered countless real-life benefits of living with less. And now, to help others experience the same freedom, they offer the most important lessons they’ve learned through the process. Simplify is full of personal stories, practical tips, and powerful inspiration.

It is based on a rational approach to minimalism. It will forever change the way you look at physical possessions. And most importantly, its approach will free you from the burden of clutter and provide you with the extra motivation to realign your life around your heart’s greatest passions… however you choose to define them.

Praise for Simplify:
• “A must-read.” - Leo Babauta, Zen Habits, TIME Magazine Blog of the Year
• “If you’re looking for specific advice on how to live well with less, this book is worth a look.” - Naomi Seldin, The Times Union, Albany, NY
• “It is a simple, straightforward guide to simplifying your life and brings new light to the term minimalist.” - Tanna Clark, Professional Organizer

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring 20 Aug. 2012
By Urs
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this book. It inspired me to simplify so many aspects of my life. The best part is that it has tips on how to do it but at the same time it's not preachy. It shows you how to take a progressive aproach in simplfying your life instead of the "chuck everything you have" motto of other books on minimalism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, but a great read 8 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a minimalist myself but still got lots out of this book. It's quite short but tells you everything you need to know. I personally prefer books that just contain what you need to know without padding the book out with useless info or repeating it self. this is straight to the point and very motivating.

Very inspiring reading from someone who is living it. Not too long for the book to get lost in words. Works well as a how-to manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiny book for a tiny price. . . 8 Nov. 2012
By A.B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a simple introduction to the idea of simplifying your life. It isn't a big book, but then it doesn't claim to be. For those who want an introduction to principles of simplification, this is a start. At the very least it will encourage you to place more efforts on the priorities in your own life, rather than let life's busyness overwhelm you.
