A joy to read, this little book will help you clear out clutter, be content with less, and simplify your life--with tips on everything from creating a minimalist workspace to going paperless. In short, it will help you enjoy a simpler, happier life!

I read Leo's blog periodically and have come to appreciate many of his ideas about minimalism and a zen lifestyle in general. This book takes pieces from his blog over the years, but organizes it in a way that focuses on specific aspects of your life from finances to dieting and excersize. Many of the concepts in the book I already understand, but I need to read it from time to time to re-evaluate how I'm applying the concepts to different areas of my own life. I need to minimalize my office desk right now...
