Joy in simplicity,
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)
Off all the books out there on the topic of simplicity, this one has to take the cake for the range of ideas offered. There are something like 1,800 in total. Don't let that throw you; as the author states at the outset, the book isn't meant to be read cover-to-cover. Rather, it's a compendium of ideas that your turn to as you notice complexity creeping into your life. For example, if you kitchen is a total mess, or your office, or your car, you turn to that chapter and get anywhere from twenty to fifty ideas on how to make things more simple. Mark Victor Hansen, the Chicken Soup for the Soul co-author, is the forward author for this book. That says a lot.
