Great concept, great ideas, but ironically dragged out...

3 stars

The good: The ideas in this book are well articulated & universally applicable to a majority of our lives. Much of our work, health, lives, and relationships are needlessly complex - and this book visually demonstrates why this is a problem and what the general approach is to simplify things.

The bad: This book was twice as long as it needed to be.

If you've never dove into the concepts of minimalism & simplicity for your daily lifestyle, this is a great starting point for the necessary mindset. It's intentionally universal to all applications, professions, people, etc. which also works against it - since If you're looking for a step-by-step guide to simplify a specific area of your life, you won't find it here.
