“I’m so inspired by this wise, timely book! Like so many people right now, I’m drawn to the idea of minimalism, but, to be honest, I find myself pretty deeply entrenched in bad habits of clutter and accumulation. I’m so thankful for Joshua’s clear vision for what life can be when we choose to surround ourselves with less stuff, and how in doing so, we create more space for living and dreaming.”
—Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine and Savor
“Joshua Becker is a distinguished voice in the modern minimalism movement. Engaging and nonjudgmental, The More of Less masterfully articulates the benefits—and the joy—of living with less.”
—Joshua Fields Millburn, creator of theminimalists.com and coauthor of Everything That Remains
“Those of us attracted to minimalism often face a challenge: how do we invite our friends and family into this liberating way of life? With amusing stories and on-the-ground practical advice, Joshua explains how to make your minimalist journey a group endeavor. There are going to be a lot of happy children, spouses, and friends because of this book.”
—Dave Bruno, author of The 100 Thing Challenge
“I’ve enjoyed Joshua Becker’s message and writing for many years, and this is by far his best work. His very practical advice for living with less, together with moving stories from real people living with less, provides the tools and motivation for powerful change. I’m in awe of how Becker weaves the step-by-step how to with the moving why to of minimalism.”
— Courtney Carver, author of Simple Ways to Be More With Less
“I opened The More of Less expecting to learn ways to minimize my excess. Instead, I learned freeing steps to maximize my life. Using relatable anecdotes and enlightening revelations, Joshua Becker reveals an innovative approach that adds more meaning to our schedules, personal well-being, relationships, finances, and passions. Don’t let the word minimalist intimidate you. The More of Less helps you craft your own style of minimalism that aligns with your purpose. There are no drastic measures required, and no set plans you must follow. Open this book to unburden your life and give oxygen to what matters most.”
—Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Mama and Hands Free Life
“This is it—the book that will change your life with a surprisingly simple solution: Less can actually mean more. A whole lot more.”
—Jeff Goins, bestselling author of The Art of Work
“In his latest book, The More of Less, Joshua Becker leads you through the steps of finding the life you want by getting to the heart of what you need. If you have been looking for a practical, actionable guide to help you find a simpler and more fulfilling way of living, this is the book you need.”
—Patrick Rhone, author of Enough
“People are motivated to change when they grasp three important things: the clear reasons change is needed (the “why”), the clear path of next steps that can be taken (the “how”), and a clear sense that the one calling for change is credible (the “who”). This definitive book on minimalism offers all three pieces. And because Joshua is a longtime practitioner with sound credibility, the reader can rest assured that whatever steps they’ll be taking will lead to a richer life of joy, generosity, meaning, and wholeness. If you can read only one book on minimalism, this should be it.”
—Richard Dahlstrom, senior pastor of Bethany Community Church, Seattle, WA
“Often our biggest fear about living with less is that we might miss out, but Joshua Becker explains with crystal clarity just how much we have to gain from the minimalist lifestyle. Packed with actionable ideas you can apply today, The More of Less is the perfect balance of instruction and motivation. A must read!”
—Ruth Soukup, New York Times best-selling author of Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind, and Soul
“The More of Less is a great guide to starting and maintaining a life of simplicity.”
—Ryan Nicodemus, creator of theminimalists.com and co-author of Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life
“Joshua Becker is simply promoting a way to do life that is more than attractive—it’s a really big idea that will radically change lives. Read it.”
—Jeff Shinabarger, founder of Plywood People and author of More or Less: Choosing a Lifestyle of Excessive Generosity
“Joshua Becker is one of my heroes. The More of Less shows all of us how to embrace the joy of less and in so doing how to live a richer, deeper, and more intentional life. If you’re struggling with too much stuff and too little happiness, here is your must-read.”
—Peter Walsh, author of the New York Times bestseller It’s All Too Much
“Despite all the books and blogs I’ve read about minimalism, and in spite of all the minimalists I’ve talked to, I came to The More of Less a skeptic. Why say yes to an idea that says you’ve got to have less? By the end, though—thanks to Joshua Becker’s gentle, simple, persuasive way of explaining things—I’d thrown out a bunch of stuff, and I was a convert. He’s right; minimalism isn’t about less, it’s about more.”
—James Wallman, author of Stuffocation

For more concise and helpful advice, and painful honesty at that, read Marie Kondo and Fumio Sasaki books.
I love it. I love the message and the message is simple .... free yourself up for living.
I highly recommend this book to people who want a "gentle push" into minimalism. It is not too much of a preachy book, but since the author is a Christian, there will be a lot of Christian references in it about Jesus and God. But I didn't mind the references too much at all because the way Joshua explains his references are mostly relatable to the reader if they are a Christian or not.
Get this book if you want to learn more about minimalism or want a new perspective on minimalism! You won't regret it!
Thank you, Joshua, because this book is helping me every day to slowly but steadily, work my home to a level of minimalism that will greatly improve the quality of my life and everyone in the household. I also recommend getting both the book in print and the MP3CD so that you can listen to Joshua talk to you about his concepts as well as study his best points in print.
