A Simpler Life: A guide to greater serenity, ease, and clarity 

Hardcover – June 10 2022

by Alain de Botton 

 

This book explores ideas around minimalism, simplicity and how to live comfortably with less.

 

 

We live in a complicated, frenzied, and noisy world, filled with too much information, too many products, ideas, and opinions. As a result, many of us long for simplicity: a pared down, more peaceful, and less cluttered life. 

 

This book is a guide to the simpler lives we crave and deserve. In it, we learn about Zen Buddhism, modernist architecture, monasteries, psychoanalysis, and why three good friends and a few treasured belongings are enough. 

 

Taking a psychological approach, the book also guides us toward inner simplicity. For too long we've been drowning in excess, clutter, and confusion. A Simpler Life helps us tune out the static and focus on what really matters.

 

  • DECLUTTER YOUR LIFE practical ways to get rid of physical and psychological clutter.
  • HOW TO BE DIRECT advice on adopting a simpler, more straight-forward mindset.
  • THE APPEAL OF MINIMALISM looks at why more of us are drawn to a pared down existence.
  • HOW TO SIMPLIFY everything from relationships, social life, lifestyle, and work.
