Présentation de l'éditeur

What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want? Twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want. Until he didn’t anymore.

Blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage in the same month, Millburn started questioning every aspect of the life he had built for himself. Then, he accidentally discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism…and everything started to change.

That was four years ago. Since, Millburn, now 32, has embraced simplicity. In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, he jettisoned most of his material possessions, paid off loads of crippling debt, and walked away from his six-figure career.

So, when everything was gone, what was left? Not a how-to book but a why-to book, Everything That Remains is the touching, surprising story of what happened when one young man decided to let go of everything and begin living more deliberately. Heartrending, uplifting, and deeply personal, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful (and often hilarious) interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn’s best friend of twenty years.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Author's writing style chokes out his message 5 mars 2014
Par Hannah Caroline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
After reading some of the high ratings here, I bought "Everything That Remains" and enthusiastically awaited its arrival. What a disappointment it turned out to be. Perhaps I can spare someone else the same kind of letdown.

The book (toward the end) does contain some valuable ideas on reducing consumerism during the Christmas season. Getting to that point, however, requires enduring a long, wordy story about the author's dysfuntional childhood, followed by his corporate success. He then shares that he downsized his life, but there are far more pages of mere rambling than there are of interesting dialog about his simplicity journey. I can't recall how many times I thought, "Oh, please, get to the point!"

By the way, the co-author, whose life we learn just a little about, is the better writer of the two. But virtually everything he says (except for the helpful holiday ideas) is relegated to the end of the book, in tiny font. So the reader must employ two bookmarks and flip to the end of the book a total of 108 times, where the second author's input is added as endnotes. Not a comfortable or convenient format.

The worst part, however, is Mr. Millburn's writing. He's clearly an intelligent and witty guy, but his ego is overpowering. He has an admirable ability to speak his truth. If he would only express himself from that place of openness and honesty, rather than trying to impress his audience. Trying to impress is never impressive. His continual barrage of ridiculously enormous words and odd metaphors makes the reading of this book tedious. He must have spent a heap of time poring over a thesaurus. He's also a bit loose with crude and foul language. He could stand to incorporate some of the minimalism he lives into his writing style. Cleaner. Tidier. Less excess. And the beginning of page 127 to almost the bottom of page 129 is one continuous run-on sentence. One sentence literally takes up nearly three full pages of this book. No joke. What's most disturbing about that? This man teaches (pricey) on-line WRITING courses. Yikes!

I give him two stars. Yes, he did progress from the corporate world to the path of minimalism, and for that I applaud him. He deserves accolades, also, for his healthy, compassionate diet. Beyond that...? If this book really calls to you, then by all means, check it out. From the minimalism books I've read, however, this is one I'd be least likely to recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Journey to Abundance 4 janvier 2014
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Everything That Remains is an eye opening experience into Joshua Fields Millburns journey into minimalism. JFM shares the raw details from the initial contamination of materialism in his early years to the full spread of the disease of materialism during the height of his corporate career. After JFM encounters two major life events, he reevaluates his quality of life and seeks to find fulfillment with living with less: less money, less things, less stress. JFM's minimalism movement spreads like a wild fire to his best friend and both ignite a blog to share their enlightenment and documentation of their journey. These guys on fire with passion spreading their ideas to millions around the world.

I have to admit, midway through reading Everything That Remains, I stopped to clean out my kitchen, closets, and bedroom to remove all the junk in my home that was holding me back, physically and emotionally. The detachment of these objects felt liberating and offered a tiny glimpse into the world JFM and Ryan live every day.

I love how the book leaves room for the reader to extract their own interpretation to apply to their life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Does not disappoint 3 janvier 2014
Par Tahlia Meredith - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'll admit, I'm already a huge fan of The Minimalists. I approached this new book with caution though, wary that it might just be going over already-familiar ground.

Thankfully, I was wrong. This beautifully written memoir offers insight into the lives of Joshua and Ryan that we haven't been privvy to before. Joshua takes the reins, describing his growing dissatisfaction with his corporate life and the painful life events that forced him to examine his worldview. As he delves deeper into a minimalist lifestyle Ryan, his best friend, frequently appears both in the narrative and with his often cheeky interruptions. Peppered with wisdom, readers following this journey will feel empowered to make real change in their lives. Yes, it's scary. But yes, it can be done.

This is a book for fans and new readers alike.

A journey that more should take, January 12, 2014
By Norma J. Sassone "Norma J" (Olympia WA)

This review is from: Everything That Remains: A Memoir by The Minimalists (Paperback)
I recently happened upon the Minimalists mentioned in a Houzz chat, while reading the trials and tribulations many have in downsizing when they retire or clearing out half a century of stuff left by parents who have died. I have struggled with this with my Mom who is very sentimental about many of her things. I am a baby boomer who never fell for all the materialistic life, have always paid cash for EVERYTHING (no credit card debt cars for cash), have saved, bought second hand, and culled out tons of stuff from my abode on a regular basis, so Millburn's ideas are really nothing new to many of us who never fell for the consumer addiction (and there ARE many of us out here). Though I have lived life simply, I somehow never have felt the need to flaunt it to others, travel the world talking about it, or start a blog. Maybe it is because my family taught us to value togetherness, the simple things in life, growing our own food, going for walks, traveling on the cheap, and pretty much detesting the wealthy and ostentatious, even though we lived a comfortable middle class life. Thus, we simply lived that life and never thought about.

That said,I really liked what Millburn has to say about his journey and its ultimate destination, but it bothers me just a bit that he and his friend Ryan have parlayed this into a way to make money by blogging and publishing, though I suppose all those of their generation might need to hear it since they have been incessantly bombarded with corporate, materialistic, consumerism since birth.

As for writing style, well, let me tell you, this retired English/writing teacher feels that Millburn still has a long journey to reach the heights of writing style and effectiveness. His narrative is well constructed and his voice rings true, but, oohh, some of those descriptions (especially of women he meets and places he goes) just jangled my ear. They were not exactly cliched, just sounded kind of "green." Again, I am finding a certain naive arrogance in someone teaching a writing course, when he has only been a writer for a few years.
Despite all that, the book is an interesting read, and could be a motivation to simplify ones life - but, really, I recommend On Walden Pond. Henry David Thoreau was the original minimalist.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The autobiography of a young guy who gets rid of his stuff, writes some stuff and travels 3 avril 2014
Par Susanna Hutcheson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I don't really like to read the life story of someone half my age who has yet to be old enough to tell a big, significant story from which I can learn something. But, this is a decent book. If the writer could learn one thing from this old writer it would be to not use unnecessary big words or made-up words. Good writers use short, common words and don't try to impress with their vocabulary,or use of the thesaurus. Thus this sentence was uncalled for: "He talked loudly, methamphetaminicly, and Ryan just sat there and politely tolerated his manic sales pitch." Gawd! Are we to know what that word means? It's not even in the dictionary. Minimalism applies to writing in a very real way.

The author says he wants to "add value" to people's lives. "Habitually, before every tweet, every status update, every essay I write, I ask myself, Am I Adding Value?" To that he adds, "Adding Value surely doesn't sound as sexy as Going Viral, but it's the only way to gain long-term buy-in, and it's one of the few ways to build trust."

I think he and his partner certainly do add value to people's lives by discussing and advocating minimalism. Janis Joplin sang in Me and Bobbie McGee, "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." To me, that's the truth in an elegant nutshell.

Milburn starts with his terrible childhood. I thought the book was about minimalism but it's truly an autobiography. We go with him and his partner through their adventures with their few possessions up to the present. We can, I'm sure, expect more books. Kind of like a roadshow.

He does talk about how his mother had an overwhelming amount of junk when she died. This happens all too often. It happened when my mother died. It's common. People have way too much stuff. As a minimalist myself, I know how freeing it is to get rid of all but what you love and need. I used to be totally overwhelmed with all my stuff. I had clothes with price tags still on them! That's incredibly stupid and even wrong and surely unhealthy.

So the message these two guys are spreading is of real value. It's significant and can give people a whole new life that is better and richer. But I want to read the message and not the messenger. I want to read about minimalism and not the minimalists. Certainly we, the readers, want to know and understand why the writer came to minimalism. But I couldn't care less about their sexual encounters or trips to bars or the fact that the only sex the author had was with his "hand." This I don't need to know and have no interest at all in.

The author overworks his hand at his newly learned pros. He tries too hard to write creatively and cleverly and seems to be in practice for fiction writing. F Scott Fitzgerald he is not. But, it will impress some and appeal to some.

So, if you're interested in a romp around the country with two young guys and a bit about minimalism, you'll love this book. If you want to know about minimalism and get the message with less of the messenger, look elsewhere.
