The More of Less, by Joshua Becker Book Review

Hello again, everyone! Today finds us with a new book review, and this time the The More of Less, by Joshua Becker.

As someone who strives to live a minimalist lifestyle, in both my home and business, I’ve following Joshua Becker, on his site Becoming Minimalist, for the past several years. What I liked most about Becker’s site, his idea that minimalism can be a sound, obtainable goal through the presentation of reasonable minimalism.

What I liked about this book: In Becker’s latest book, The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own, he extrapolates on his blogs central minimalist theme, as well as the benefits of owning even fewer personal affects. While this book does not present anything particularly new for long-time readers, it is refreshing to hear the mantra of  “I just don’t need to own all this stuff any longer” is the worth bearing repeating.

What could have used some work: This book is also filled with personal stories that serve to inspire those seeking a minimalist life. Those whom have somewhat and completely delve into this book may find it more worthy of a coffee table than as a library reference edition for Spring cleaning and the like. Which makes this books premise somewhat ironic considering the nature of this books genre.

What I loved about this book: I enjoyed reading The More of Less as a simple, fun Sunday afternoon read. As I’m in the midst of an annual Spring clean, this book was a great edition to a small, three-day minor decluttering, capsule wardrobe re-configuring, and donation season kick.

All in all, this is a great book to read if you’re looking to be inspired or pursue a more minimalist life for those new to Joshua Becker’s writing style and minimalist principles.
