At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important. In their debut book, Joshua and Ryan, authors of the popular website TheMinimalists.com, explore their troubled pasts and descent into depression. Though they had achieved the American Dream, they worked ridiculous hours, wastefully spent money, and lived paycheck to paycheck. Instead of discovering their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences, which only led to more debt, depression, and discontent.
After a pair of life-changing events, Joshua and Ryan discovered minimalism, allowing them to eliminate their excess material things so they could focus on life's most important things: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.

The narrator tells this “advice” in a very uninspired and monotonous way and runs through the book. Was very strenuous.
The “advice” that you get from the Minimalists is more a “you must do this” (i.e. you must have these 5 values because nothing else works) or else you will keep on failing. It’s like they have the only recipe. (Which is not true if you listen to their other books because they just copied from other minimalists and made it their own by using the same words and phrases again and again.)
It’s also up to you if you really want to purchase this because you could also listen to their podcasts for free where they tell you the same stuff over and over and over again.
I don’t think this added value to my life.

Great to Start a new Life
great and interesting topic. i already lived a sort of minimalist life when it comes to things and clutter.
but there is more to it. i came across this book and the wonderful authors watching their documentary "minimalism".
the documentary, the book and the page all together are so meaningful and inspiring to me.
