warming soul of many people who are on a treadmill, with bigger homes,racing to get ahead.My compliments
to the author for coming up with this journal of real life stories and to those who took time out to contribute.
How were these stories chosen?!
If you want truly amazing stories of simplication and scaling back, listen to the stories of the long-term unemployed. They're the ones who should have been featured in this book, rather than the story of the IT guy voluntarily quitting his lucrative job to go live on a houseboat in San Francisco and jog all day. Really??!!
After reading, I began to make lists of what I really wanted in life, keeping this close at hand whenever I found myself struggling to find what I was looking for. Ten months ago, I made a huge move, I downsized my life and found so much more. To each of the authors in this book I express my gratitude.

I found this book at a friend's house. It looked good so I got it on my I pad. It gave me a lot to think about.
I really liked it and I would recommend it to anyone.
Particularly pertinent in this economic crisis. Much of what we all own is frivolous, simply to fulfill the want, not the need. A very satisfying read.Published on September 5, 2010 by Valerie Dean
I felt like this was a generally useful and enjoyable read. It's more a collection of stories than a set of steps that you would need to go to if you wanted to simplify your life. Read morePublished on July 27, 2008 by Ryan P. Liegel
