Simplify: Another book review

I recently finished reading the book You Can Never Get Enough Of What You Don't Need : the quest for contentment by Mary Ellen Edmunds.  Very Good. 

The blurb on the back of the book says:  Why does it seem we are always looking for more? In her wonderfully unique style, author Mary Ellen Edmunds suggests that You Can Never Get Enough of What You Don’t Need because what you don’t need never satisfies. "I can have a house filled with stuff and things, but if it’s not what I need, it will never satisfy me, no matter how much I have," she observes. Have you noticed that the happiness we equate with abundance often eludes both those who get what they want in life and those who don’t? This eye-opening treasure hunt of a book will help you find the secret to living with contentment.

Mary Ellen is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and definitely writes from that perspective.  She asks so many good questions, makes suggestions for enlightening exercises and makes such a convincing case that you want to simplify your life for all of the best reasons.  I highly recommend it.

Pin It!
