Insightful but Too Short

This book is worth the listen, but I wish it was longer. It feels like it ended abruptly and the book in its entirety seemed more like an introductory chapter. I was expecting more detailed instructions and/or more of a step-by-step guide.

Felt like a quick summary.

I really thought I was listening to the first chapter that was a summary of what was to come then bam! The whole thing ended. It was an odd ending, I was startled to hear the Thank you for listening to Audible announcement. Not worth spending any money.

My Favorite

I've read dozens of minimalism books- definitely some better than others, but this one is probably one of my favorites, if not the absolute favorite. The author’s words inspire without being condescending or laying on the guilt. Worth the time to learn more.

Practical

This is the only self help, self improvement, how-to, whatever-you-call-it book I've ever willingly read.Throughout this book you'll find real ways of stripping your life of superfluous stuff, both physical and not, that'll improve your life. I think the minimalist philosophy has the potential to truly change lives for the better.

Motivating

So many things I've read on minimalism focuses on decluttering your possessions. One level up from this are the most typical reasons to minimise and the typical benefits. For every person looking to become a minimalist but can't quite find the motivation, I highly recommend this book.

Insightful

This a great book if you’re looking into or stepping into this new minimal lifestyle. It’s a great start into getting ready to start living life with more meaning. However, it isn’t meant to depict specially what to do or how to do it. It will only tell you how to get started on your own way. Equally, I found the book insightful.

Incomplete

I have a deep interest in minimalism - not only to lessen the stress of the abundance of too much stuff, but the absolute freedom "less" provides. Although the book is good - I expected more from it.

This book was phenomenal- an eye opener for me on a minimalist lifestyle. It features more about being a minimalist with your inner self not just with your stuff. I'm going to recommend it to everyone I know.
