Essential: The Best of The Minimalists

“Helping us end our obsession with stuff.”
LA Weekly

Now Available

We combined our three previous essay collections—The Minimalists (2011), Simplicity (2012), and A Day in the Life of a Minimalist (2013)—and then we trimmed the nonessentials and added 70 new essays from the past two years to create this new book.

Essential is the very best of The Minimalists. This book collects our most relevant essays—some short, some long—edited and organized to create an experience that’s considerably different from reading individual selections online. From simple living, decluttering, and finances, to passion, health, and relationships, Essential is for anyone who desires a more intentional life.
