Podcast is better

I like The Minimalists — a lot. They’ve changed my life. As for this books of the “essential” essays cultivated from their blog, it was just all right. They are short and good for reading one or two before bed, and I think it may be too easy to dismiss some of the essays without noticing that each one is often just a brushstroke in a broader picture. And that broader picture is awesome. But, honestly, I get more out of their podcast than I did from this book. Grade: B

Narration is excellent.

mumbling narrator destroys great content

the minimalists have some great content, but here the mumbling narrator destroys it. I'd suggest listening to their podcasts instead, they're significantly more engaging.

Useful now, amazing later

Excellent complementary material to the documentary, highly recommended to anyone feeling overloaded with unnecessary stuff.

The superior edition

This version is far better than the original. There's extra content and the narrator suits the vibe exponentially, he gets it. No disrespect to the English bloke but Justin Malik suits the whole Minimalists aesthetic.
