‘The Minimalists show you how to disconnect from our conditioned material state and reconnect to our true essence: love people and use things. This is not a book about how to live with less, but about how to live more deeply and more fully.’
Jay Shetty, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Like a Monk


‘Joshua and Ryan have penned an urgent manifesto for the growing movement away from the material and towards the meaningful. An important book for our current moment.’

AS SEEN ON THE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARIES MINIMALISM & LESS IS NOW


How might your life be better with less?


Imagine a life with less: less stuff, less clutter, less stress and debt and discontent – a life with fewer distractions. Now, imagine a life with more: more time, more meaningful relationships, more growth and contribution and contentment – a life of passion, unencumbered by the trappings of the chaotic world around you. What you’re imagining is an intentional life. And to get there, you’ll have to let go of some clutter that’s in the way.

In Love People, Use Things, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus move past simple decluttering to show how minimalism makes room to reevaluate and heal the seven essential relationships in our lives: stuff, truth, self, money, values, creativity and people. They use their own experiences?and those of the people they have met along the minimalist journey?to provide a template for how to live a fuller, more meaningful life.

Because once you have less, you can make room for the right kind of more.

The Minimalists show you how to disconnect from our conditioned material state and reconnect to our true essence: love people and use things. This is not a book about how to live with less, but about how to live more deeply and more fully.

Sincere prophets of anti-consumerism.
The New Yorker
The Minimalists speak eloquently about the spiritual, emotional, and financial liberation that can come with shedding your addiction to excess stuff. They are not monks, and they are not living on one grain of rice a day-they are just regular guys who changed their lives by getting rid of a lot of excess stuff.
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
[With the] charm of their buddy-act, The Minimalists have become the [minimalist] movement's American ringleaders.
New York Magazine
[The Minimalists] inspire readers to take stock of their earthly possessions and question what is truly necessary to live a good life.
