This audio book has condensed years of their work into an enjoyable format that saves me a bundle of time. I good way to encourage a minimalist lifestyle.

If you are a fan of The Hidden Why and the messages and thoughts I share you will likely resonate brilliantly with these boys. Life doesn’t need to be complex or complicated but we and society seem to have created a belief that it does. The Minimalist help to change this.

Call it what you will this lifestyle is not all about sacrifices and living on your bare bones but rather it’s about simplification. Taking away the complexity in life.

Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things so we can make room for life's most important things—which actually aren't things at all.

At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important.

In their debut book, Joshua & Ryan, authors of the popular website The Minimalists, explore their troubled pasts and descent into depression. Though they had achieved the American Dream, they worked ridiculous hours, wastefully spent money, and lived paycheck to paycheck. Instead of discovering their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences—which only led to more debt, depression, and discontent.

After a pair of life-changing events, Joshua & Ryan discovered minimalism, allowing them to eliminate their excess material things so they could focus on life's most important "things": health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.
