This has a wide range of material and topics and deals with a lot of the emotional side of things too. I gleaned a lot of tips from it and go back to it as a reference. I like all the stories and cases of people on this "discarding" and simplifying kick.
The part that was most helpful to me was the introduction to the idea that substantial progress didn't depend on needing big, long-term goals. "Leaning the boat in the direction you want to go" by asking "what do I want more of in my life?" and "what do I want less of in my life?" -- making small changes in those directions, letting them guide small decisions, and re-evaluating the questions periodically -- can accumulate into transformational change over time. As someone who's always had difficulty figuring out where I'm trying to get to in my life, this was phenomenally helpful. (I know now that plenty of others have covered this idea, but this book was my introduction to it).
I was looking for a book on decluttering my stuff, and I received something far more helpful. (It has lots of good information and suggestions that have helped with my decluttering efforts, as well.)
A lot of the book is essentially cliches on self motivation and productivity. A lot of good advice which however is essentially common sense. But amidst the clutter there are some very interesting insights and techniques which may be useful I'm achieving a simpler, healthier and more balanced lifestyle.
I however often felt there were whole paragraphs that I could skip and still get understand the point or ideas.
