"In silence and in solitude we went, One first, the other following his steps,
As minor friars journeying on their road."

The Rewards of Simplicity - Book Review
Can you give a book zero stars? No? Ok then it gets just one. I think I can sum up my dislike for this book like this: There is a difference between Simplicity and just being Simple. The book is written poorly with meaningless rabbit trails and stories about their family that don't add to the book. There is a constant equation of this happened and then we found this that is just too formulaic to be any help. I just found the whole book frustrating. There are a few nuggets in chapters 3 and 4 but not enough to be worth picking up the book for. We need good books about simplicity! I appreciate that the Pierece's were trying to write a book that looks at the spiritual side of this important topic, but my feeling was that they didn't succeed. In summary: I feel that the book is poorly written with a serious lack of content. Please go and find a different book on simplicity to read.
I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany Publishing House for reviewing purposes.
