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 in the same month, Millburn started questioning every aspect of the life he had built for himself. Then, he accidentally discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism…and everything started to change.
That was four years ago. Since, Millburn, now 32, has embraced simplicity. In the pursuit of looking 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.
So, when 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. Heartrending, uplifting, and deeply personal, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful (and often hilarious) interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn’s best friend of twenty years.

Don't let the term memoir fool you (I normally find memoirs boring). This is a powerful read. How lucky these authors are to have discovered the true meaning of life at such a young age. Read on and share!
Minimalism worth the effort
Finally got around to reading one of there books after listening to the podcast for so long. Overall very enjoyable quick read. The narrative makes it easier to grasp the concepts as applied to real life situations.
Finished reading Minimalism, Live a Meaningful Life and Everything that Remains. A real eye opener with factual information that can help anyone with an open mind. Next up, Essentials. Love you guys!
