Recommended to me by a Zen Master, the overall message is undeniably accurate. But there's a lot of repetition and it's written almost like a syllabus (in lists of 4, 5, 8 reasons why this or that...). I almost quit at the second chapter, which was nothing but pieces of letters received by people who took the Voluntary Simplicity Survey, along with "research shows....", "statistics prove..." and "63% of the people surveyed, said..." At times compelling, and at times a snore.
