Publisher's Summary

What if everything you ever wanted isn't what you actually want? Twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want. Until he didn't anymore.
Blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage, Millburn started questioning the life he had built for himself.
Then he discovered minimalism...and everything started to change.
Four years later, Millburn had embraced simplicity. In the search for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American dream, he jettisoned most of his material possessions, paid off loads of crippling debt, and walked away from his six-figure career.
Once everything was gone, what was left? Not a how-to book but a why-to book, Everything That Remains is the touching, surprising story of what happened when one young man decided to let go of everything and begin living more deliberately. Heart-rending, uplifting, and deeply personal, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn's best friend of 20 years.

Audio is best format for this

Big overlap with their podcast content but this is a good telling of how The Minimalists became The Minimalists, although it’s mostly about Joshua’s journey. I think the audio version is probably the best format because Ryan’s words are handled as footnotes, and in the audio version, they are read right where they should go, maintaining the flow better, IMO. Grade: A-

Excellent narration.

The Way Of The Future

I had already started down the minimalist road a couple of years ago but listening to Josh and Ryan's book helped bring some more things into focus. I realized I was unhappy, working long hours in a job i didn't like to pay for lots of stuff it turns out i didn't even need.

Today my life is much simpler and happier. I ditched all the stuff I didn't need and as a result have to work much less and in a job I actually enjoy because I could afford to do what I wanted to do instead of chasing the big bucks in a job I had to do.

I recommend everyone to look at the work of these 2 guys and take some of it away with you. A simple stuff free and stress free life is defiantly the way of the future.

Listened to in two sittings

Now in my 52nd year of life found the book I have been searching for to help me get rid of the “stuff” that is keeping me anchored to an cluttered life.
I’m now at the beginning of my journey.
This book is the story of the Minimalists, not a goofy self help book but a story to give you ideas about how to direct your life and adapt ideas that they talk about.
