The More of Less delivers a empowering plan for living more by owning less. In a society consumed by consumption and stressed about finances, millions are realizing that more "stuff" won't necessarily bring more happiness. Material pursuits, in fact, almost always prevent us from making room for what does. That's why minimalism, defined by the author as "the intentional promotion of everything we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it", suggests a radical about face. His book provides a deeply considered manifest for a life-giving alternative: Less is more. Contentment is possible. Generosity enriches. Genuine abundance is not found in wealth.
