From AudioFile:

In some circles this message could be considered very controversial. A book about how to do less, rather than more, needs an assured, convincing narration such as the one Fred Stella provides. The author's countercultural exhortations--that one check email only once or twice a day and limit one own email messages to five lines, for example--come across with genuine plausibility as a result of Stella's precise enunciation and slight upward inflection at the end of each paragraph or section. Stella's purposeful, steady flow maintains the listener's attention as he presents practical steps towards unhooking from the manic pace of modern life. Positive and upbeat, Stella's enthusiasm infuses this clarion call to return to a simpler way life. M.R. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
