My biggest issue with this book is that while it claims to promote sustainability, a large percentage of the large pages have only 1-10 words in large font on them (which I assume is to show drama with minimalism). The entire book is printed on very, very heavyweight paper & the front and back covers are made from approximately 1/4" pressed paper board. While holding that visible waste of our planet's natural resources, it was difficult to take the author's vision of sustainability seriously. If she had decided to "rethink" the printing of the book, prior to printing and releasing, I may well have found it to one I'd recommend to others.

American psychiatrist William Glasser, founder of the Institute of Reality, identified the five basic needs of all human beans:

1. The need to survive and reproduce.
2. The need to love and belong.
3. The need for (power) recognition.
4. The need for freedom or independence.
5. The need for fun.
