Because I've seen Joshua Becker's blog about minimalist living, I was curious to read his book, The More of Less. I wasn't disappointed. In this book (and on his blog), Becker helps readers understand why cluttered lives are less productive. He tells what prompted him to begin removing things from his life that did not add value or meet a need. He tells readers how to begin the process of evaluating their belongings carefully to get rid of anything that is keeping them from enjoying a more productive life. He tells them how to maintain this lifestyle, how to encourage family members to support them or to join them, and how to use the money and time they gain in more responsible and fulfilling ways. The book is insightful, practical, and inspirational. Even readers who don't feel called to a minimalist lifestyle to the extent that Becker and others mentioned in the book have been will find motivation and practical ideas for removing some of the clutter from their lives, perhaps in some surprising and unexpected places.
This book was definitely worth my time, and I happily recommend it to you. I thank Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for sending a complimentary copy in exchange for this review.
