Publisher's Summary

Simplifying is not necessarily about getting rid of everything we've worked so hard for. It's about making wise choices. It's about recognizing that trying to have it all has gotten in the way of enjoying the things that truly do add to our happiness and well-being. It's about deciding what's important to us, and gracefully letting go of the things that aren't.If you've thought about simplifying your life, but don't know where to begin, Living the Simple Life is the blueprint you need. Simplicity expert Elaine St. James explains how to make simplifying a painless process whether you're just beginning to scale down or whether you think your life couldn't get any simpler. She explains the philosophy behind simplifying and the mindset you need to achieve it in both your outer and inner lives. You'll discover how simplifying your life will give you more time to play and to relax, make you more productive at work, unleash your creativity and open up new possibilities, and free up time for you to face the challenges you've been avoiding.

Bad Recording

I've been an Audible customer for some time but I can't recall listening to a worse recording of an otherwise good book. As I was listening, I thought I must have selected the wrong file size. I went back to My Library and realized that I choose the best quality available.

I recommend the book but find the recording a bit hard to take. Sounds like it was done with tin cans.

Good but 1999

The audio options are only 1 & 2 - so the author sounds like Daffy Duck. The content was worth the member price. Given that it was released in 1999 the author discusses automated checking as if it were new (which it was in 99), but doesn't mention things like TiVo (watch just the things you want, when you want to and without commercials). I still learned from it, and don't regret the purchase.
