Books I Love
In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto
One of 2-3 books that have changed my life entirely. Read this and I guarantee you’ll never look at the American diet the same again.
I find myself using and talking about tricks I learned in The Happiness Project all the time. Maybe you will too.
The Millionaire Next Door
Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D.
How average people become rich. This is a thoroughly inspiring, easy-to-read book on how others have gotten rich slowly. One of my favorite books about money!
I started using David Allen’s famous system for organization and productivity in 2008. This is the second book that has irreversibly changed my life for the better. I highly recommend it if you’re feeling overwhelmed with to dos.
Amy spent a year trying not to produce any garbage. Great ideas for ditching disposable items and living with less.
Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence
Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin
A classic for good reason. Every minimalist – I take that back – everyone should read this book.
Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time
Find out why we’re so overwhelmed in the U.S. and what you can do to bring balance back to your life. I wrote a bit more about Schulte’s book here.
