Publisher's Summary

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less is a self-help book by Greg McKeown. The book outlines a minimalist approach to tasks and obligations by focusing on truly important goals and learning to turn down opportunities that do not directly contribute to meeting those goals. The modern fixation on multitasking and having it all has paradoxically resulted in accomplished, motivated people doing many relatively unimportant things poorly while neglecting their true goals because they are afraid of refusing any request....

Please note: These are key takeaways and an analysis of the book, not the original book.

    "Hard to stay focused with the narrator"

    I really did not like the narrator to this short synopsis of the real essentialism book.
    1) I thought I purchased the real essentialism book THIS IS NOT IT
    2) the narrators voice is robotic and so hard to stay focused with. I gave up listening to this within the first few chapters. I do not recommend.

    "Misleading title"

    I bought this audio book thinking it is the original book. Title is misleading and don't have enough to content. Dissapointed

    "The Truth Hurts (a bit). It's worth knowing."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown to be better than the print version?

    Only listened.


    What other book might you compare Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown to and why?

    Thinking: Fast and Slow; 30 minute key takeaways...Distills the 500 pages down to 5 or so lessons learned.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No scenes.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I realized the I (many others) distract ourselves from life instead of focusing on the few important issues.


    Any additional comments?

    Pick one area and DO IT and keep a log of your success.... simple.... Green days on you desk calendar when you complete an action, red when you give in to temptation to ignore.

    "Boring and lightweight"

    Not worth the listen to. I suggest buy the actual book if you are interested and study at a leisurely pace. Even though, I found this book tedious and not very interesting.
