Lots of great ideas, easy to read,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Joy of Simple Living: Over 1,500 Simple Ways to Make Your Life Easy and Content-- At Home and At Work (Paperback)
I usually stay away from simplify your life kind of books because I find them to be, well, too simple. This one strikes the right balance. There are lots of ideas in every chapter on how to simplify your life and at the same time, these are concrete ideas, actions you can take that will actually make a difference. Too often I have seen books where authors talk about skipping through the daisies barefooted, or stripping down your wardrobe to the essence, or some other suggestion that I am not going to follow. In the Joy of Simple Living the author seems to be speaking directly to me and addressing the kinds of issues and obstacles that I face on a daily basis. The sprinkling of humor throughout the book makes it all that much easier to read.
