5.0 out of 5 stars A Primer, Plus Some - Simplicity Plus Morality December 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The other reviewers are correct that this is a relatively short book. It's not possible to get a page count on a Kindle edition, but based on the number of "locations" it's roughly the equivalent of a 130-page print book.

Don't confuse the lack of pages with a lack of content, however. There's enough material in here for you to chew on for quite awhile - especially if you're new to minimalism & simple living.

This isn't a "sell all your stuff, ditch all your old friends, move across the world and live out of a backpack" book. In this book Joshua meets you where you are, and give you practical tips to help you move toward a meaningful life - not just a life with less stuff.

If you're looking for a good starter book to unpack the essentials of minimalism & simple living, this is a great choice.

If you're looking for a decent book about how to find more meaning in your life, this is a great choice.

If you're interested in learning about how minimalism & simplicity can work into a Christian belief system, that's even covered in this book - although not in a way that I think would offend non-Christians.

It's a good read, it's a quick read, and I think it's the sort of book that you'll want to periodically re-read. Well worth the few bucks!

4.0 out of 5 stars well-thought-out take on life . . . November 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book on my new Kindle Fire, and thought it was a very thoughtful take on what it really means to have a simplified life. It means paring down to the essentials, AFTER thinking about what those essentials are. The author is a Christian, which I am not, but I found his views on spirituality to be nonetheless helpful and nonjudgmental. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand just what it takes to have a meaningful life, filled with deep relationships that matter. It IS a short book - as a book on "simplicity" should be, but it is meaty and satisfying, inside-out.

4.0 out of 5 stars thought provoking, quick read November 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought both of Becker's ebooks when they were 99 cents. Inside Out tackled deeper issues and helped me examine places in my non-physical life that could use some work. Warning - somewhere in the book you will disagree, perhaps strongly, with Becker. For me it was his views on sex. But keep reading, its worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Needed Common Sense January 2, 2012
By Evelyn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Somewhere along the way we lose our common sense and we need a reminder. Its non-judgmental and he doesn't lecture you on morality. Its straight forward and thought provoking. An author doesn't need to write 4000 pages to do that. Less is more. I've read both his books and they have gotten me to think and make changes in my life. You don't need to ditch it all, live off the grid, organic farm, use cloth diapers and spend 10 hrs a day meditating and doing yoga to lead a spiritual, simple, moral, satisfying and relevant life. You can do that living in a suburb of NYC and working a 9-5 job. Thanks for reminding me of that and not making me feel bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that surpring... March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maybe because I've read a lot about the subject, this book didn't bring enough new information and ideas as to be considered a very productive read. It wasn't super inspiring either.
I believe it would be a good start for anyone new to the subject of simplicity and minimalism, though.
It is very well written and the author is really honest and agreeable.

3.0 out of 5 stars High level advice February 4, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Easy to read, as blog-post collection books usually are, but light on nitty-gritty implementation details. A good high-level overview on what someone new to the concept of simplicity should think about.

Spending two chapters pushing his strong personal stance on sex, marriage and God/religion detracted from the message of acceptance as necessary to achieving simplicity.

More About the Author

Joshua Becker and his young family live in Peoria, AZ. In many ways, they are just your typical middle-class, suburban family--minus the dog and relentless pursuit of physical possessions.

After a conversation with their neighbor on Memorial Day 2008, Joshua and his family decided to pursue a more minimalist lifestyle. Consequently, they decided to remove their nonessential possessions. Eventually, over 70% of their belongings were sold, donated, or discarded. In exchange for owning less, they found a life of more freedom, more contentment, more generosity, and more opportunity to pursue the things that mattered most.

Joshua is the Founder and Editor of Becoming Minimalist, a website dedicated to inspiring others to find more life by owning less. The website welcomes over 300,000 regular readers each month. The website has inspired millions around the world to consider the practical benefits of owning fewer possessions and given them the practical help to get started. His books have sold in the tens of thousands. And his writing has led to speaking opportunities all across America and media appearances in the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post Live, and the CBS Evening News.

No doubt, you'll be inspired to approach life with a whole new mindset after meeting Joshua.
