    "The superior edition"

    This version is far better than the original. There's extra content and the narrator suits the vibe exponentially, he gets it. No disrespect to the English bloke but Justin Malik suits the whole Minimalists aesthetic.

    "Loved the collection of Minimalist articles"

    I love listening to these articles while I'm driving, standing in line and just feeling like I want a deeper reminder of the possibility and true examples of living a simple and meaningful life. ' Everything that remains' was my favourite read on this topic but this is short snippets of a variety of topics all about how to weave minimalism into our daily life and relationships. Well done and Thank you for having the courage to share such a powerful and sincere message! Xxx

    "Essential is essential"

    It should be a text of schools, university's and life. A philosophy for living that everyone should consider.

    "Podcast is better"

    I like The Minimalists — a lot. They’ve changed my life. As for this books of the “essential” essays cultivated from their blog, it was just all right. They are short and good for reading one or two before bed, and I think it may be too easy to dismiss some of the essays without noticing that each one is often just a brushstroke in a broader picture. And that broader picture is awesome. But, honestly, I get more out of their podcast than I did from this book. Grade: B

    Narration is excellent.

    "Minimal!"

    The authors should take their own advice. This book could have and should have been condensed to one magazine article. After an hour, I couldn't bare it any longer, even in rush hour traffic.

    "genuine"

    Good if you don't have a solid amount of time to sit down and listen. It is broken into a lot of different areas which allows me to listen on the road to and from work. I found it genuine and thought provoking.

    "Liberating"

    It's not often that I clear my schedule and listen to an entire book in a single day, but this is so inspiring, captivating, motivating, and liberating that I just flat couldn't turn it off. It definitely helps that I identify with the authors, being a 6 figure earner that sold my home to live a much more simplified life on a farm not long ago. The book verbalizes my innermost thoughts, it's basically like listening to someone read your diary aloud to you. I loved it, and this will no doubt be a repeat listen.
