This book was interesting, but it was pretty short and not really worth the $9.99 I paid for it on my Kindle. I began to read his blog at the same time and noticed that it was more informative and interesting than the book at times. It's also lacking as a "how-to" manual; for instance, I kept wondering how Bogue kept up with certain day-to-day things, such as:

-How did he rent apartments? Did he sign leases? What was his living situation like?
-Where did he connect to the Internet to do his work?

LOVE this so far...I wish I could carry a miniature Ev Bogue around with me everywhere, to tell me, "don't buy that! Throw that out! Why are you hanging on to that? Why are you wasting time on Facebook again?". He's such a good writer, and you really can't argue with anything he says--it's just sound, simple wisdom from a very wise young man.

It's a quick, easy introduction to minimalism. I think there's a bit of youthful zeal that needs to be ignored, but there are some good principles at the core if you want to make some changes. Guard your time. Get rid of time-wasters and stuff that don't add much value to your life, but drain your energy. Realize that you can live with much less than you have. As long as you stay out of the bullshit weeds, there is something to be gleamed from this book.

A completely new way to lead our lifestyle and see the world. Consumption, work, time, travelling ability, the definition of success and happiness - all are put onto the table for consideration under a life of less than 100 objects. The most interesting part: you don't need to be a 100% minimalist. Life would be much easier being a partial minimalist learning to simplify and clear out materialistic obstacles in your life.
