5.0 out of 5 stars Does not disappoint, January 2, 2014
This review is from: Everything That Remains: A Memoir by The Minimalists (Kindle Edition)
I'll admit, I'm already a huge fan of The Minimalists. I approached this new book with caution though, wary that it might just be going over already-familiar ground.

Thankfully, I was wrong. This beautifully written memoir offers insight into the lives of Joshua and Ryan that we haven't been privvy to before. Joshua takes the reins, describing his growing dissatisfaction with his corporate life and the painful life events that forced him to examine his worldview. As he delves deeper into a minimalist lifestyle Ryan, his best friend, frequently appears both in the narrative and with his often cheeky interruptions. Peppered with wisdom, readers following this journey will feel empowered to make real change in their lives. Yes, it's scary. But yes, it can be done.

This is a book for fans and new readers alike.

I was fortunate to get a copy of this book from Joshua himself. As one of the reviewers mentioned, there is a lot of new information about theminimalists that hasn't been shared before. Joshua has a way of describing himself that I think almost anyone can relate to--that is, anyone who is living the American Dream but who sees through the facade of climbing the ladder. While we don't all need to quit our jobs, we can learn to see life differently and find what is important in our life. This book gives you a view of two people who were courageous enough to challenge the paradigm we have all grown to believe in and accept. Kudos...I am going to read this book whenever I find my life expectations fall out of balance.
