Instead, Tabb explores how to enhance one's personal character by developing humility, cutting back to a slower pace, and enhancing a sense of servitude to others. The value of this book is that it causes individuals to question what is of genuine merit in their lives. Tabb makes some good points about how we need to listen more to other people, share more, teach more, love more, and appreciate more. He quotes everyone from Solomon to Dave Barry in making the point that accumulating "stuff" is not the secret of happiness.
My recommendation is not to read the book in one or two sittings, as I did, because of its repetition of theme and examples. However, reading one chapter every week or so can provide perspective regarding the need to pull back a bit from the hectic antics of our break-neck-speed world. Even the Bible tells us to "be temperate in all things." -- Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Christian Book Previews.com
Tabb writes, with a friendly, comfortable tone. The book reads like a conversation between friends. And like a friend, Tabb gets direct at times. Not drill sergeant direct, but he doesn't pull any punches either. I found the book did a great job of organizing things I knew to be true, but hadn't necessarily thought through.
Thanks Mark, for connecting the dots for me.
This is a must read! Reading it just makes you feel so darn good about what you already have in your life! Good Job!

It's easy reading thouh, almost like a sermon series, and if you are caught in a busy, materialist lifestyle it would be helpful, and fun to read. However, if, like me, you are already living simply and are looking for something to give you further inspiration, this is probably not the book for you,
