Zen Habits - Handbook for Life are Kindle Leo Babauta's blog, Zen Habits is great and there's a lot of useful stuff on there.This book started out great but ended up just being trite. With a blog you can say 'I'm interested in this but I'll skip that. That's not for me'. The parts of this book that are about minimalism and getting things done were very interesting to me but so much of it was repetitive lists and 'inspirational' quotes that had my eyes on a near continuous roll. It starts humble and ends sanctimonious. I would recommend the Zen Habits blog but if you read that, this book isn't going to teach you anything new and may end up irritating you. If you were hankering after a book in this vein I'd recommend Stuffocation by James Wallman. .

  3. This book had some good things in it but I expected since it was published so recently I really didn t read anything brand new, it was of principles recycled from books prior to this one I did really enjoy the conscious living section though.I also think the book could have better organized He repeats a lot of things, it would have been nice if we could figure out a unifying theme to tie alot of the concepts together.If you re the type of person that loves step by step guides, this is for you [...]


  4. It s a pretty simple book, or rather a booklet Very straightforward and rather simplistic I skipped through it and didn t read it thoroughly because everything is as common sensical as possible or you ve surely heard it somewhere else or thought it yourself It still might prove useful because it works as a reminder of those nice ideas we and projects or tips we had for ourself but somehow lost sight of them because of all the clutter of day to day life I ve personally took away just one tip whic [...]


  5. Fabulous Huge fan of Leo Babauta and his blogd just wanted to post here to spread the word for him His blog zenhabits is one of my favorites This book is FANTASTIC for anyone who is looking to be productive or for someone trying to make a life change break a habit exercise , etc Super fastyou can read it in a day.


  6. Leo is one of my favourite simplicity authors and the Power of Less was key to setting me off on my own journey to simpler living and eventually setting up my own blog with simplicity at it s core This short collection of key posts and articles come together in a handy book that serves as a reminder of much of what is truly important in life.A great read


  7. Disappointed not anything different than the blogI have enjoyed the author s blog for a couple of years now, but I was a little disappointed that the book ended up being a very clear copy paste of blog articles complete with typos and lists of tips with read here after each which didn t link anywhere Also, the AmAre chapters at the end were very different in tone and did not flow well with Leo s style at all This was a gift, otherwise I would have seriously considered trying to get a refund.


  8. Do less This is both a happiness and productivity tip Doing less will make you happier, because your life won t be so hectic and filled with stress You will have time for things that give you pleasure, for the loved ones in your life, for life itself It s also a productivity tip if you focus on the essential tasks, the big ones, the ones that will give you the most return for your time, and eliminate the rest, you will actually be productive You ll get fewer tasks done, but you will be effecti [...]


  9. Full of practicle advice on how to get the most out of your life Would be especially practical for the working individual or busy person who is feeling overwhelmed The other made big changes in his life in just a couple years and shares some of his tips which vary from getting your to do list done, eating, exercise and personal time This books is a collection of the top posts in his blog.


  10. A great blook book that comes from a blog from a man genuinely interested in sharing the message of a thoughtful and intentional life Leo is part of this group of people who have leveraged technology to make their lives freer, not enslaved.The book is entirely action oriented, full of listicles but not the annoying buzzfeed type the GTD get things done a phrase he uses often type.Around getting tasks done he has some great advice for the overwhelmed Start with the big things first, only have t [...]


  11. Did not care for this book I thought it was a over reaching in it s grasp And also at points, too narrow in its focus For example the author, throughout the book, covers lots of common knowledge ideas Eat healthy, exercise and meditate Heard it 100 times before, don t need to hear it again Also I live it but that s not even really my gripe It s trite and redundant Then in some places he goes too deep down the rabbit hole in my opinion Because of your xxx body reaction you shouldn t eat after nin [...]


  12. I got this book from the library It is filled with very straightforward tips Nothing particularly mind blowing here You can tell it was written by a blogger, because the prose was well written, but it didn t hang together very well as a complete work It wandered across topics without an underlying theme explained and without proper organization That said, it was a quick and engaging read and startlingly well done for the self published.


  13. its good to read once in a while a book like this were it takes the inventory of simple thing we can take to improve our lives the book makes it so obvious and easy to to change the way we go about our lives worth reading to see for your self how much opportunities we loose by just going with the wave


  14. Meh I really enjoy the Zen Habits blog, and I took some notes while I was reading, but I found the text a little too woo and esoteric and at the same time, obvious to be of help to me I found myself wishing that the book were like the Happiness Project, which had a lot of wisdom to it, but was also really accessible.


  15. Focus , Power of Less and Zen to Done are probably the best titles under his belt and are well edited In this one, shoddy writing, ideology and philosophy contrary to peer reviewed evidences overruns his contribution to self help slash productivity genre.Sad, that this book marks the beginning of his venture into motivational speaker persona.


  16. I realize this is not necessarily a self help forum As someone who has gone through LOTS of self help books from The Sidetracked Sisters on, this one is universal and would be good for me to listen to on a regular basis While there is nothing new or groundbreaking, I liked the parts on simplifying life, how to reduce stress.


  17. Simplicity is the key advice from Leo Babauta as always This short read is a good introduction to Leo s philosophy and offers good advice I enjoyed the read especially the chapter The Art of Doing Nothing can t wait to get this one cataloged and up on display I think it will be a good read for a few of my students.


  18. This is a print collection of the ideas in the authors blog It s useful information, but all content I ve seen But that s because I follow similar blogs For someone new to the ideas of GTD and simplicity, this could be a useful primer.


  19. A great book full of ideas, but I found that a lot of it does lack real physical applications and suggestions to implement I think it presents an excellent way of looking at the world, but not exactly a help on getting started.


  20. I ve read Leo s blog for a long time and this was mostly a retread of what s been published there If you re new to these ideas this will be a great book but otherwise find something else.


  21. This book is a cumulination of the blog that Leo Babouta writes and is a great way to get all the reminders in one place An easy, short read with good tidbits on each page.






  22. This book is hit and miss, but it does contain some gems and useful info It s an easy read, so worth giving it a try if you want to simplify and or improve your life in some way.




  23. If you are a fan of the blog you ll enjoy this book its a nice selection of Leo s posts all combined together A quick read but lots of inspiring suggestions for creating better habits.
