Interesting concept, and it started off quite good, but unfortunately I felt it became a bit pretentious and self-congratulatory by the end.
Great book. Very insightful. It has change how I approach new things as well as what I have been doing
Thank you, this is exactly what I needed. Definitely a life changing book.
I began to implement the principles immediately! It has had such a positive impact on my life and my businesses.
I really appreciate this book, I would recommend to anyone who like me prefer to do fewer thing but do it right.
I have to admit that I am very disappointed. It is ironic that a book so relentlessly advocates essentialism is so non-essential: repeat the same materials emphasizing the importance of essentialism in different ways over and over again. The importance is justified without the need of any emphasis, otherwise I would not read this book. My problem, which I believe might also be the problem for a lot of others, is how to differentiate the essential from the non-essential. To this point, it looks like the author has failed to provide any meaningful suggestion, let alone insightful framework or process or logic flow. If I recall correctly, the only suggestion I see is to increase the threshold of your decision. If the candidate is not 90%, then don't make decision. What a waste of time.
would love to read this book again. although we all know many of these things, putting them down with examples helped me a lot. I would recommend it to anyone. narrating is also good for a non-fiction book like this. This is one of the books to read once a year to keep a check on yourself and be an essentialist.
Clearly defines a path to getting more out of life through focusing on less. The cure for Attention Deficit in our modern society.
Love this - listening to it a second time now in order to soak it all in.
Thought provoking and motivational. Will take 2-3 readings to have it all sink in and effectively apply. Worth the cost and time.
