I’d blog about this book for the title alone, but the premise is compelling in and of itself: in a world where there is more of everything than ever before, how do we pare down to just the essentials, the things that really matter, thereby simplifying our work, our lives, our thinking? The author, Matthew E. May has written a string of excellent books around the concepts of minimalism and elegance — his previous book, “In Pursuit of Elegance,” made a masterful case for the importance of omission in the act of creating — and is probably the most articulate writers on minimalism of the past decade. Even better, “The Laws of Subtraction” contains a brief contribution from yours truly. Get your copy from Amazon (affiliate link).
