5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem Nov. 4 2003
By Hayduke
I bought my copy circa 1978 at age 35 and shared it with my wife. Even though we were already instinctively thinking along these lines this book impressed us greatly. It's title became something of a household quip and we found ourselves frequently dipping into it and finding something applicable to the rat race. It became so dog-eared that we had it custom bound as a family treasure. Its wisdom has seen us into a early, modest, and satisfactory retirement.

1.0 out of 5 stars I hate this book. July 7 2004
I am VERY interested in the philosophy and implementation of voluntary simplicity, and I was very much looking forward to receiving and reading this book. Obviously, many people like it. I will be returning mine. This book is filled with the most rambling and incoherent quotes I have encountered, probably 95% of which are from Christian sources whose mentality will NOT apply to voluntary simplicity people of other religions (we do not hold Jesus and Catholic saints as role models.) The "modern" quotes from the book are people in the 70's (book published in 1978) talking about how the planet is 10 years from collapse. I found absolutely nothing in this book either practically helpful OR intellectually inspiring. In addition, something about the paper or ink gives this book a nauseating, choking stink when opened and read (NOT a typical "new book" smell.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Like no other simplicity book out there... Sept. 15 2003
By Neo
Having read many books of the simplicity genre you will find that this book is unique. It has challenged me to deeply reflect upon my life and how I can further shed unecessary burdens. Before reading this book I already lived simple. After reading this book it shined the light in areas I was still attached to. This book will have an impact on my life forever. It exposes the emptiness of a life based solely on money, career, possessions, and the daily grind. Awakening the dormant spiritual giant within us that longs for depth and meaning in a society gone mad with superficiality. "Less is More" can help guide one toward the path of freedom, beauty, simplicty and adventure.
