I enjoyed this book a lot. The main attraction for me was the tone and stance of the writer. He is a normal person, just writing in a natural style about how he discovered the joys of minimalism and the benefits he has gained. He makes it clear that each person defines what minimalism is for them. He has far fewer possessions than I will ever have, but the core of the idea works for me. I like his tips that “minimizing is not organizing” and “discarding memorabilia is not discarding memories” and that photographs are an excellent way to preserve and remember things. You do not need the physical object. I felt his freedom when reading the book, and this has inspired me to mimimize too and experience my own freedom.
