Author Update (October 8, 2013):

This book was written after a time in my life when I had too much and wanted more. I'll be the first to admit that the writing is not great. I've considered removing the book from Amazon many times, but then I get an email or review stating how much Luxury of Less helped with something.

If you're expecting to read a great work of literature then please don't buy this. You're just wasting your time.

If you're cool with reading a bit about my life story and how I made some changes that got me out of a personal, depressive, rut then this is for you.

### End Author Update ###

Luxury of Less is about how to live an extraordinary life without the physical and mental excess pervasive in our society today. It's my story of deep depression and incredible happiness. It's about true minimalism; mindset instead of the number of things you own.

The title and contents are very loosely based on The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi.

What others have said:

I love the Luxury of Less because it’s so much more than an ebook on minimalism. The Luxury of Less is about living a healthy life filled with joy. Karol gives great advice and ideas to change your life in simple, practical ways that make a big difference. Anyone can benefit from the ebook, not simply someone who wants to live with less than 100 things and travel the world. The Luxury of Less is written for a mother of 3, a single twenty something and a retiree. With it’s dirt cheap price, I highly recommend the Luxury of Less to anyone who is looking to pare down their life and focus on what is most important.

In the Luxury of Less ebook, Karol walks you through how you can examine your life inside out through minimalism. It’s about examining not only one’s relationship with stuff but also relationships with people and relationship with one’s self.

I really enjoyed reading the ebook as Karol’s authenticity shines when he used his life experiences as an example and an inspiration to answer the question on why be a minimalist. The luxury of less is not about depriving oneself, it’s about making room for the things that matter to you and using them as tools to go for your dreams and live your best life. Whether you’re a long time minimalist or new to the concept of minimalism, this ebook will certainly inspire you to clear the clutter in your life, remove toxic relationships, be a friend to yourself and most of all enjoy life to the fullest by working on what you’re truly passionate about.

If there’s one book on minimalism that you should read, this would be it.
