Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book with my wife. Ryan’s footnotes were comical and always timely. I felt like I got to know Joshua more while reading this book and see what has shaped his as a man. Life is one step at a time and this story is proof of where life can unexpectedly take you if you saddle up for the journey. A well recommended read. On to their third one!
Sometimes we are afraid to tell people what we've been through because it's hurtful or humiliating but there is a rawness to this that makes you feel closer to the author without having ever met Joshua. Some things work for me and some things don't and that's fine. He found his niche in life now and he's amazing at it. I hope to read some more of his work soon.
Simple read, serious in a funny way... Light and meaningful. This is basically exactly what I needed, exactly when I required it.I recommend the digital version, as it's easier to read Ryan's footnotes that method (no flipping around). However, I didn't realize that some you have to scroll down as they are longer that the pop-up box.
What a eye opening book! I already wish to obtain rid of all my items that I'm not using, and declutter items we collected over years in our house. If we wish happiness in life we need to read this amazing book, and follow the notice they have for you! Thank you Ryan, Joshua, and Collin for awesome work you're doing to save this not too satisfied world!I'd love to come to your next California visit! Hold up amazing work.
I have been working towards a minimalist life and these guys have really catalyzed my transformation. I enjoyed the book and JFM is a unbelievable writer. However, I did grow weary of the constant attention to women's appearance. Also, when they recount the supposed conversations they had together and with others, it seems unnatural and unrealistic. It seems like they tried to contain some of their philosophies and ideas in a more interactive method by framing them as conversations (though they do explain in the beginning of the book that they added some fiction to the true story). Overall, definitely worth reading if you are interested in simplifying your life and moreover, interested in how these two have journeyed towards a amazing life with less stuff.
After listening to Josh and Ryan’s Minimalists podcast for the past year, I was intrigued to learn more about their stories! I found this book to be an engaging read. When finished, I conducted another purge of my house! My hubby said it was well worth the cost of the book! ;)
The author has really amazing values in life, and writes in a method that is relatable to the average person. This book does not only express values of minimalism, but it expresses values that appeal to everyone. It helps the average person to see just how minimalism can be a part of everyone's lives. However, sometimes the author's writing style of being in a live conversation was a bit frustrating. There were a lot of run on sentences and at times it became confusing. The co-author's notes (that you can flip to the back to see their commenting) were beautiful arduous and I gave up on that part of the book half method through the first chapter.
