After finding Matt D’Avella and finally got around to see the documentary Minimalism I wanted to do more than just watch youtube clips about the topic. I was/am still in the middle of two other books Sapiens and why Buddism is true. The Essential: Essays by the minimalists was a nice break from the other books. Especially Buddism is a bit of a tough read. I like the points but the pace is a bit slow too slow for me.
The Essential Essay collection, however, was fun to read. Each essay was short and to the point. Easy to read and always had something for your brain to chew on. It was repeating itself a bit. But it makes sense when you collect blog entries in similar categories. Another thing was it felt very American – which also makes sense. While I liked the overall writting I would have liked it to contain more pieces written by Ryan.
