Publisher's Summary

Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things that clutter our lives so we can make room for life's most important things - which actually aren't things at all.
At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important. In their debut book, Joshua and Ryan, authors of the popular website, explore their troubled pasts and descent into depression. Though they had achieved the American Dream, they worked ridiculous hours, wastefully spent money, and lived paycheck to paycheck. Instead of discovering their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences, which only led to more debt, depression, and discontent.
After a pair of life-changing events, Joshua and Ryan discovered minimalism, allowing them to eliminate their excess material things so they could focus on life's most important things: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.

This book gives a great introduction to how Joshua (one half of The Minimalists) came to find this way of life. We also get insight from Ryan, who "interjects" throughout the book, which is good fun. The audio for these interjections is done really well, so you can always tell who's viewpoint you are listening to.

I'm already a huge fan of The Minimalists, and I recommend this book to new fans and established - it's a wonderful listen, with some really practical and thought-provoking ideas.
