The other reviewers are correct that this is a relatively short book. It's not possible to get a page count on a Kindle edition, but based on the number of "locations" it's roughly the equivalent of a 130-page print book.

Don't confuse the lack of pages with a lack of content, however. There's enough material in here for you to chew on for quite awhile - especially if you're new to minimalism & simple living.

This isn't a "sell all your stuff, ditch all your old friends, move across the world and live out of a backpack" book. In this book Joshua meets you where you are, and give you practical tips to help you move toward a meaningful life - not just a life with less stuff.

If you're looking for a good starter book to unpack the essentials of minimalism & simple living, this is a great choice.

If you're looking for a decent book about how to find more meaning in your life, this is a great choice.

If you're interested in learning about how minimalism & simplicity can work into a Christian belief system, that's even covered in this book - although not in a way that I think would offend non-Christians.

It's a good read, it's a quick read, and I think it's the sort of book that you'll want to periodically re-read. Well worth the few bucks!

I read this book on my new Kindle Fire, and thought it was a very thoughtful take on what it really means to have a simplified life. It means paring down to the essentials, AFTER thinking about what those essentials are. The author is a Christian, which I am not, but I found his views on spirituality to be nonetheless helpful and nonjudgmental. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand just what it takes to have a meaningful life, filled with deep relationships that matter. It IS a short book - as a book on "simplicity" should be, but it is meaty and satisfying, inside-out.

I bought both of Becker's ebooks when they were 99 cents. Inside Out tackled deeper issues and helped me examine places in my non-physical life that could use some work. Warning - somewhere in the book you will disagree, perhaps strongly, with Becker. For me it was his views on sex. But keep reading, its worth it.

Somewhere along the way we lose our common sense and we need a reminder. Its non-judgmental and he doesn't lecture you on morality. Its straight forward and thought provoking. An author doesn't need to write 4000 pages to do that. Less is more. I've read both his books and they have gotten me to think and make changes in my life. You don't need to ditch it all, live off the grid, organic farm, use cloth diapers and spend 10 hrs a day meditating and doing yoga to lead a spiritual, simple, moral, satisfying and relevant life. You can do that living in a suburb of NYC and working a 9-5 job. Thanks for reminding me of that and not making me feel bad.

Maybe because I've read a lot about the subject, this book didn't bring enough new information and ideas as to be considered a very productive read. It wasn't super inspiring either.
I believe it would be a good start for anyone new to the subject of simplicity and minimalism, though.
It is very well written and the author is really honest and agreeable.

I got this book after reading Simplify, not realizing it was for a younger demographic. I was not disappointed. It is not too late to employ many of the suggestions even though I am now retired. The inspiration to live minimally is backed up with how to go about it in this book,n a good read if you are interested in the experience.

It's so good to be challenged about how we live, think and act. Getting a revelation of simplicity inside and out will change your life forever.
