Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A certain kind of busyness is crucial to life, allowing us to earn a living, create art, and achieve success. But too often it consumes us and we become crazy busy, nonstop busy, and we expend extraneous effort that gets us nowhere. Marc Lessers new book shows us the benefits of doing less in a world that has increasingly embraced more — more desire, more activity, more things, more exhaustion. Less is about stopping, about the possibility of finding composure in the midst of activity. The ideas and practices that Lesser outlines offer a radical yet simple approach to transforming a lifestyle based on endless to-do lists into a more meaningful approach that is truly more productive in every sense.

Megan Keane, January 2, 2010 (view all comments by Megan Keane)
If you're feeling the information overload; wishing things would slow down so you can "catch up", this book is a wonderful, helpful breath of fresh air and advice. Written by a former Buddhist monk turned life coach, this simple, but practical book has a lot of guidelines for how to find serenity in our media-saturated, fast-paced culture and most importantly, how to live in a way in line with what is really important to you. I recommend this as best book of the decade.
