Book Review, “Essentialism,” Greg McKowen, Author


Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit Of Less, written by Greg McKeown, is a book that strives to teach its readers how to discern what is absolutely essential while setting aside those things that can be discarded.

This book is definitely not for everyone. If your life is manageable, if it’s filled with satisfying activities, if you are progressing at pace you are comfortable with, this publication is one you should consider purchasing. But for those who feel overloaded, for those who are distracted, for those who feel stuck in a pattern of doing a lot, but not really doing much that matters personally, this publication should become an immediate part of your book collection.

McKeown teaches that the process of essentialism is centered around the four E’s: Essence, Explore, Eliminate and Execute. Essentialism’s goal is to help you do less, and these elements serve as a powerful guide in the attaining of this goal. He states, “If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will,” McKeown says.

The book is filled with many examples of individuals who live by the principles and actions described in this book, thus it would be a good investment, but only for a very specific audience.
