    Must Read

    I have had the pleasure of working with John De Graaf through the Take Back Your Time movement and other related items. This book is very good and I think we as Americans need to look at what is truly important in life and start creating a work/life balance. We are overworked as a society and it is time to take back our time. Chris Ortiz, author, 40+: Overtime Under Poor Leadership

    Excellent

    Nice pimer for those just thinking about simplicity or old hands at it awhile. Numerous essays that are succinct, yet full of info.
