I think to get the most out of this book, the reader would already want to make some quite big changes in their lives. Although there is some justification for why they both did it, this part feels more autobiographical than an attempt to persuade directly. However, if a reader knows they want or must make some changes to avoid feeling crushed by the consumerist more, more, more culture, then I think this book might be really helpful if they were looking for quite comprehensive advice on how a life in full can be turned around.
The writers come across as quite sympathetic characters. Sometimes I felt that there was a bit too much emphasis on how much they earned before becoming minimalists, although I realize this is a device to emphasize that minimalism is just a better, more fulfilling way to live, rather than being a coping strategy for those who have very little.
Recommended for those ready to change their lives.
