Joshua and Ryan both jettisoned most of their material possessions at age 30 to pursue more meaningful lives. Essential Essays highlights essays from the first nine months of their journey into minimalism.

Essential Essays is an edited collection of 29 of The Minimalists' favorite essays about living a more meaningful life with less stuff. This collection also contains a special forward by Joshua and Ryan, as well as two bonus essays you can't find anywhere else: "Dealing with Overwhelm" and "Focus On What's Important."

The book is organized into seven interconnected themes: Living in the Moment, Emotional Health, Growth, Contribution, Taking Action, Passion and Mission, and Change and Experimentation. The order of this collection is deliberate; it is meant to be read from beginning to end. Doing so will result in a better overall experience--a different experience from reading these essays all over the web--connecting various concepts that might otherwise seem unconnected.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly Inspirational! 8. Oktober 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Minimalist: Essential Essays is a must-read for all those who long to make their lives more meaningful. This book helped me realize that I've been spending too much time on life's non-essentials and I figured that's what's been keeping me from being truly happy. I strongly agree that you can NEVER EVER fail if you pursue you passion. The book is a delight to read! You can easily relate to the authors as they share their life experiences so I can say that this, by far, is the best "How-To-Be-Happy" guide I have ever read--sincere, applicable, concise, straight to the point. Start focusing on what is really important and start living your life to the fullest! Without reservation, I heartily recommend this book. Thank you, Joshua and Ryan, for being an inspiration. Bravo!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Persönliche Note, aber nicht neues zum Thema 29. November 2012
Von Phil S.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
JFM und Ryan verpacken ihren Blog in Buchform.
Sie bringen zwar viel persönliche Note in ihre Essays, jedoch sind diese auch auf ihrem Blog zu finden. Und es ist nicht das einzige Buch, dass sie über Minimalismus verfasst haben.
Ich habe es damals für 0€ [Kindle] bekommen. 4€ wären mir ein paar neue Essays nicht wert gewesen.

Für Beginner im Minimalismus ist es sicher empfehlenswert zu lesen. Diejenigen, die schon länger dabei sind, können hierauf verzichten. Deswegen 3 Sterne, da es wirklich gut geschrieben ist.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Great blog posts don't necessarily make a great collection 11. Dezember 2011
Von K. REEVES - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Millburn and Nicodemus have some good ideas on the philosophy and practice of minimalism, and present them in an accessible way. Most of these essays, read over time on their blog, would be thought-provoking and helpful for one trying to live a minimalist life, but laid end to end in this collection they are unduly repetitive. The grain of their reflections is insufficiently fine to convey a real sense of the texture of the minimalist life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical advice with a very personal touch 27. September 2011
Von Love books, love gadgets - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This collection of essays is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to scale back and focus on what's truly important in life. There's lots of good advice on how to get started in all areas, from career to health to possessions.

The essay that resonated most with me is the one on letting go of sentimental items. Joshua talks about dealing with his mother's belongings after she passed away. It really helped me finally let go of boxes and boxes of stuff I had in the basement, because it was a good reminder that people live on in our hearts and minds, not in objects. That includes me, too -- I really don't need my high school yearbooks to remember my teens, a song on the radio takes me right back as does a conversation with an old friend.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lacks depth 24. April 2012
Von M. gobble - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm really grateful to be a recipient of a free copy of this book. It had some good advice but lacked depth. I felt like I was reading short blog posts that didn't quite have enough umph to make it to book status. It would have been a little classier if they left out the four letter words. They just didn't add anything of substance.

That being said. I'll continue to be a fan of living minimal which includes not finishing this book as it's just not an enriching use of my time. I'll probably check their blog every few months...

1.0 von 5 Sternen not much more than their blog posts 4. Dezember 2012
Von Lois Field - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Yes, there are I believe two articles in here not on their blog, save your money and just read the blog instead.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty Impressive Thinking For A 30-Year-Old, But 24. April 2012
Von Doug Stewart - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
But the thinking is pretty superficial, the essays are repetitive, and these "truths" should be self-evident by anyone who's ever had a deep thought.

On the plus side, I'm always envious of younger people who have "figured out" what life is really about. For the price, you can't go too far wrong reading this short collection. There are things to think about in the writing...

Minimalism is a tool to get rid of superfluous excess in favor of focusing on whats important in life so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom. &quote;
Markiert von 48 Kindle-Nutzern
Happiness, as far as we are concerned, is achieved through living a meaningful life, a life that is filled with passion and freedom, a life in which we can grow as individuals and contribute to other people in meaningful ways. Growth and contribution: those are the bedrocks of happiness. Not stuff. &quote;
