Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown


 
I was in two minds whether to recommend Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown to you.  On one hand the ideas in it are very important in today's busy and connected world.  One the other hand I didn't feel that the writing was all that fantastic.
This is not an anti material things book.  It's about getting people to focus on what is really important to them and then cutting out what is not essential.
If the author had cut out the non essential from his book, it would have been a much shorter book!  Ironic given his thesis.
I did get some good ideas from the book.  And if you struggle with multiple demands on your time and feel tired and/or stressed out a lot of the time – this book might be just what you need. 
Thanks to Books on the Table who linked this up to Books You Loved so I found out about it.
