Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life — Coming Very Soon
The wait is almost over. Our first full-length non-fiction book, Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life, will be published on December 8, 2011. We spent a year writing this book, and we’re excited to finally share it with you.
Live a Meaningful Life will give you greater insight into our personal lives, our troubled pasts, our struggles with discontentment, our battles with depression, and the changes we made that led to more passionate, fulfilled, happy lives. This book thoroughly outlines how we changed the five most important areas of our lives and shows you how you can apply our changes to your life.
