This is one of the few self-help books that acutally hold what is promised in the book description. What the other people like Joshua Becker write about it is absolutely true.
I am not exactly living the simplicist's way, but I am in the process of eliminating the unnecessary in every aspect of life to make the live easier and less stressfull. And it works although I am still in progress. But I think it is a lifelong journey as targets sometimes change as oneself changes. It is about your personal targets and how to make it easier to achieve them through eleminating the unnecessary that only distracts and costs in time and money.
You don't need to surrender to the whirlwind that modern life often is, especially with children. You really can make life easier.
This book is very helpful to find your PERSONAL way to achieve this.

Mike Burns is clearly driven to de clutter his life and passionate about making other people's lives easier, as well.
However, from my own experience, it can be an exciting experience to get rid of stuff, and I am missing this excitement in the book.
Also, while Mike certainly covers all the bases in terms of what may require de-cluttering, it could provide some more guidance about indicators for what constitutes clutter and how it can be identified. After all, not recognising stuff as clutter is one of the key reasons for it accumulating.
