Review:

"According to Babauta (Zen to Done), employing 'the power of less' will propel readers from chaos to blissful and productive minimalism. Learning to set limitations, such as penning a three-item 'Most Important Task' list every day and restricting e-mails to five lines, is a cornerstone for the author's plan for increased simplicity and satisfaction. With new boundaries in place, readers can discover 'flow,' become wholly absorbed in tasks and live the paradox of doing less and achieving more. Two books take a look at the business of music." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Empowering Ourselves

THE POWER OF LESS is one of the more logically written, user-friendly manual companions for self-improvement available in book form. Leo Babauta succeeds where many others fail because he converses with the reader instead of setting out a grand plan, scheme or recipe as a checklist for obsessive self-help book readers. His writing style is casual yet intelligent, supportive, and encouraging.

The quest for simplifying our too chaotic lives is the driver for this book. Babauta has a way of presenting his thoughts that challenges the reader to examine just how cluttered our days have become. And if our days are cluttered with addictions to email, blog sites, and other fixations on the internet, he offers ways to re-think the priorities we have established in this immediate communication world in order to find a sense of balance for living the lives we all desire. Early on in the book Babauta presents two principles that remain the key to the book: 1) 'By setting limitations, we must choose the essential. So in everything you do, learn to set limitations'. and 2) 'By choosing the essential, we create great impact with minimal resources. Always choose the essential to maximize your time and energy.' The remainder of this easy to digest book takes the reader on the journey of learning how to implement these principles.

If there could be only one reason to read this book it would be to gain an appreciation for just how cluttered our lives have become, and unfortunately, lost in that clutter are such vital treasures as true interpersonal friendships and tending to our fellow human beings. And that is reason enough to read THE POWER OF LESS: the discovery of the essentials will follow.
