Publisher's Summary

If simplicity is an art, then Dominique Loreau is a master. Having lived in Japan for many years and inspired by oriental philosophy, Dominique Loreau discovered the beauty of a life well lived through the art of simplicity. Her lifestyle rests on the principle of 'less is more' and imbues all areas of existence, from the material to the spiritual.

She captured her philosophy in the groundbreaking L'art de la Simplicité, which was a massive best seller in her native France and is now available in the English language for the first time.

Simplify your home, empty your wardrobe, abandon compulsive purchases, eat more frugally but better, take care of your body and mind. From the art of feeling well in your home to the art of feeling well in your body, this compelling and elegant book will transform your life and take you on an empowering journey to happiness.

You will feel energised, more confident and free. You will discover the essence of being truly alive and how to live a more centred life. One full of real pleasure, clarity and satisfaction.

    "life changing"

    I read this book together with Spark Joy by Marie Kondo. They complement each other.
    I'm now trying to live more simply and more organized.

    "Starts Well"

    This begins well, with some great tips for simplicity and frugality. But does descend into a dictatorial diet regime by the end which is a little tired and uninformed.

    Mainly aimed at women. Tons of advice on cosmetics etc. Not really suitable for a male audience. Also some advice is contradictory

    "Far too many "shoulds" and very little guidance
    "

    Sanctimonious drone about all the things one "should" do but next to no guidance as to how simplicity can be achieved on a practical level. Decluttering is a time consuming activity, and many of the other dictates suggest redecorating, changing furniture etc This all costs money, and goes somewhat against the grain of living a simple life.

    "personal philosophy and life choices"

    A treasure trove of reflections on how to live a good life. These are personal and not for everyone; more here for the reflective soul. I found much of value for me; articulates and affirmes many of my own practices and outlook.
