It was an alright book. I appreciate that the author told a bit of her story and how it led her to minimalism, which was interesting, but it felt a bit TMI/Why-do-I-want-to-know-this at times and dragged on. Not that I don't sympathize, but just... it was not what I thought I'd get when I grabbed the book.

It had some basic tips/ideas/reasoning for getting rid of things and getting into minimalism, but it wasn't really something I would have titled "How to become a minimalist"; more like "How I b

This is a pretty good book if you have no idea what minimalism is. For the educated not as much.

I do relate to some of Bekka's problems. It's a great reminder that no situation is unchangeable, even if it's in a slight way. I like the message that it's okay to love yourself and spend money on the things you enjoy, and you don't have to feel guilty about having fun and enjoying life. That part will stick with me.

Some other thoughts: I like her idea of the 'sensible' diet. I also like her idea of

For a minimalist, the author has certainly filled her book with a lot of pseudo-clever clutter. It is really very poorly written, and reads rather like a 4th grade comic strip, complete with pictures. Every second sentence is a bad joke. Grammar, punctuation, and logical sentence structure errors abound. Really, there are NO redeeming qualities as far as the writing. It's bad.

As others have said, the book is not at all about how to become a minimalist, but rather how the author changed her own l

This book should not be called 'How to become a minimalist' as it is just an oversimplified description of author's lifestyle change. First part is full of complaints about the past life when the author was employed as a Property manager and then all of a sudden stress & clutter free life in Portland. It is similar to an article in some magazine revealing achievements of one of its readers....but why should I care??? :)

Well its a well thought and simple to read book. Just re enforced my resolve to continue on my minimalist path. Also liked the drawings. Love how she used he day to day life to illustrate minimalism..though I feel that it wouldn't make a good first read for a minimalist "newbie"

It has nothing on "How to become a minimalist" even though the title of the book says so. It's just the authors story on how things worked out for her... which is not very intersting.

Well, I think this is not a guide. It's only a collection of the Author's story becoming a minimalist.

Good quick read

"Food"for thought.
A good look at how material our society has become.
And, a reminder of what is most important.
