I became a minimalism groupie in my first year of college (1972) when I read Living Poor with Style by Ernest Callenbach. (We called it "simplicity" back then.) I've been a student of it ever since and began writing books on the subject in 1998. In 2010, I finally escaped the rat race - forever, I hope. "Let the rats have it!" I say. "It's no fun anyway."
If your life is simple, stress-free, and satisfying, you probably don't need this book. Otherwise, a new mental framework may be all you need to dig out from under once and for all. Just as we all know how to lose weight - eat less and exercise more - we know how to simplify too. So why are they both so hard? ENUFF won't make you thinner, but it WILL help you lose all your excess baggage!
Berta was brought up believing in the American Dream: work hard, be successful, make money, buy stuff. And she HAS worked hard at it. She has the lifestyle and the expensive goodies to prove it. She's in the "1%." So why isn't she proud of herself? Where's the self-esteem that should have come with all this "success"? What is she doing wrong?
Happily, she finds out.
