A series of blog posts does not a book make.

Listy, redundant and padded with common-sense that is more common than sensible, this book falls flat. Sure, there are some good ideas here, and some solid advice. But the good is overshadowed by the bad editing and lack of any kind of narrative. Mr. Babuta would have done better to cite some other experts on the subject while delivering some real-world examples and success stories. Instead, what we get is a lot of his own opinions base on his own experiences, many of which contradict one another. Perhaps most aggravating of all is the fact that the author spends only a little time supporting the title's premise and then goes off on tangents of dieting advice and decluttering one's desk.

The first thing to cut out is this book.

I have very much enjoyed Leo's blog about minimalism, and I too live a minimalistic life. I like the message. I think people should hear it. But not through this book. This book is too thin on the research behind minimalism, leaving the reader questioning the authenticity of the author. These are just one person's private views rather than researched material. Sorry. Try harder next time.
