"Simplification is not just about taking things away. It is about making room, creating space in your life."

The tone of this book is lovely. Warm and relaxed, it conveys not just thoughts about simplicity or suggestions for how to achieve it but also a felt rhythm of simplicity through the text. In a nutshell, you can summarize the book fairly easily: Have less stuff, stress, and noise, have more space, time, and connection. But I think the process of reading and digesting the book is helpful in the process of dreaming how that simplification would look in your life and your family. And that mental image of how your family could be is instructive in motivating actual change to your life and behaviors.

Highly recommended.
