    Great Book!

    This book provides insight and wisdom into the topic of simplifying your life. Lewis has written well 365 different things that help to simplify many different aspects of life under several major headings. Easy to read and digest, some topics are harder to do than others but well worth it.

    Words to Live By

    Life is better, now that Mrs Lewis has explained it in her wise words. She has a way of relating real life to real life, teaching gently without all that annoying preaching. I'm giving this book to my young-adult relatives. Maybe it can save them from the bumps and bruises of the maturity process and demonstrate how to make good life decisions.

    Very Good

    I loved this book. I read it through in one night, and now plan to re-read it more slowly, to really soak it in. Great, common-sense stuff. The world would be a much better place if we took Ms. Lewis' advice.
