Nobody has all the answers, especially not in today's too-complicated world. But that's the point. If a person wants to be happy with themselves - and others - life choices need to be simple. And sincere. Brimming with shoot-from-the-hip common sense, Patrice Lewis's Simplicity Primer is just that. Convinction and a good dose of humor underscore each of her 365 essays, making this book not only a help to the soul, but a joy to read. For all ages.

Whether you are planning on dropping off the grid or dropping off the kids at school, this book is a great start simplifying your life. It has tips on how to be green; not the fake "look at how green I am" that has become popular in recent years, but truly green by reducing you consumption. It also provides you ideas on how to de-clutter your life, whether it be actual junk (re-use it) or those that are draggin' you down (toss it out). What I found most helpful was the ideas that it tripped in my mind. Some of her ideas and examples were great and some not useable for a suburbanite like my family. But it still triggered other ideas. BTW: I'd be willing to bet that folks like Patrice Lewis and her family have a smaller carbon footprint than 95% of the so-greenies out there. This could be chalked up to living simply. We should all be so lucky.

A well written book on how to keep your life simple - by making good choices. No new-age meditation and wheat grass advice, just good *simple* advice on how to live an uncomplicated life.

This book is a must-have for every household! It's practical, witty in some places, and has lots of food for thought. There are so many good ideas in there. A person may not agree with all of them but I guarentee that you will still come away with many, many gold nuggets.

I purchased this book as soon as it was available. I read it cover to cover in less than a week. My single daughter has it now and she is loving it. I can't wait to pass it on to my married daughter. This book puts everything into perspective. I think Patrice and I were sisters from different mothers. Much of her advice is the same as I have said for years.
