Product description


Certainly one of the best and most practical books of its kind. (The Scientific & Medical Network Review 2009-11-01)

Just the thing when you're feeling overwhelmed, his strategies for organising stuff (email, admin, life generally) are easy to follow. (Red Magazine 2011-02-01)

From the Back Cover

With the arrival of the 21st century we have encountered a mental and material explosion in the Western world: we have near-unlimited information at our fingertips, we can have children who are healthy and safe, and we have wealth and possessions beyond what most of the world can dream of.

However, this is not a boast. We are more stressed than we have ever been: the majority of us are profoundly unhappy. Despite the potential of prosperity, our fears are undiminished: we are stuck with cars and computers and houses and mobiles and hundreds of other tiny apparent "needs" that, when all combined, build to something unsustainable. Though we are surrounded by what we want, our desire to keep and still get more creates a pressure that we cannot tolerate.

But we do not need to "keep up with the Joneses". The flip side of our society's growth is that we can choose what to accept, and what not to accept: what to keep, and what to lose, joyfully and consciously. With this handbook of simplicity, Leo Babauta shows us:

. why less is powerful
. how to know what you want, and what you need
. how to choose what is essential, and clear out the rest

With The Power of Less, you will able to start a complete shift from wanting everything to needing nothing, be able to live your life simply without compromise, and discover that though we cannot have everything we want, we can obtain anything we will ever need. With this book, you will find how to go through life not carefully, but carefreely.

About the author:

Leo Babauta has fought the hard way to discover the power of less: overweight and under pressure, he battled through large debts, bad habits and an intolerable worklife to become a happy father and the author of the top ten blog Zen Habits. He lives in the USA with his family.
