Check Out The Power of Less, by Leo Babauta

By Daniel Scocco

power of less

It was inevitable. Just a matter of time. Leo Babauta is one of the most prolific and talented writers I have ever seen, so coming up with a print book is a natural extension to his popular blog, Zen Habits.

I stopped counting a while ago, but if I am not wrong the man grew his blog to over 80,000 RSS subscribers in just two years. As you could have guessed, he does have some interesting things to say, and people are eager to listen.

The title of his book is , The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essential…in Business and in Life.

I have not read it yet, but it is on my Amazon wish list (it costs $11.53). I am sure I will like it though. First of all because other people already are. It is in the Amazon best selling list right now. Secondly, because I agree with most of Leo’s ideas, and especially with his minimalist approach to life.

Finally, it is also nice to see a blogger that is going mainstream. I believe this book will be a huge success, and the cornerstone of such success is Leo’s blog. It helped him to put his expertise on the table, and also to create a very engaged community around it.

This is yet another example of how any popular blog can be used as springboard to other projects.

    I am a regular reader of Zen Habits and need to pick up a copy of the Power of Less…

    I am a firm believer that your Not-To Do List is just as important as your To Do list!

    Hello

    Yes, I’m reading the power of less now by Leo. It’s worth reading folks. Extremely helpful, as the questions he raises have stuck with me as I go about my day… I’m planning on writing a review but I’d grab a copy as soon as you can. 🙂

    Thanks for the head’s up…I will be ordering myself a copy.

    Speaking of doing more with less, you should consider ‘Three Cups of Tea’. I just picked it up and couldn’t put it down.

    Although the book has nothing to do with blogging, it talks about the power of ‘giving more’ with barely nothing at all. Makes me want to start.

    Really cool story…seriously.

  • Daniel Scocco
