Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things 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 & 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 & Ryan, authors of the popular website THE MINIMALISTS, 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 & 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.

I enjoyed watching their documentary and requested this book so I could read it. I was surprised to find this book to be dull at times. I personally enjoyed the documentary way more this book. There were some helpful information, however, it is a very basic small book that has information anyone could easily find online or learn by following the authors' Facebook page. A lot of the information was basic/simple with little depth for some of the topics they covered in the book. However, I thought the last 1-2 chapters had more depth to it and it was something I was looking forward to take away from. I still plan to read their other books; hopefully they'll be more interesting to read compared to this one.
