Lots of products claim that they will change your life. This one does...
The quotes are grouped according to the various facets of this subject, although some of them are more obviously related to living simply than others. Most of the quotes range from a few sentences to a paragraph or two. The excerpt from the first chapter is not representative of the overall book. I have owned an earlier edition of this book for many years and continue to find it inspiring. I only wish that there were a hardcover edition available as my paperback copy is becoming rather worn from being read and re-read by myself and the people I have lent it to.
What's the value of a philosophy if it's impractical, regardless of how feel-good it is? That's a very important question that somehow always disturbs me when I read such well-intentioned, beatific books, at length leaving me right where I was before, but every time a bit more despairing.
