    One thought on “enough”

    1. Ok, full disclosure in case you didn't already know — Patrick Rhone, as well as being an awesome author, is my husband. And I have lived constantly with the creation of this book for well over a year.That said, the fact that I still love this book (and I am picky) is a testament. Every essay in this book (no matter how much I discussed them when they were being written) makes me think, and think some more, and go back to thinking. This is the kind of book that depends upon the reader to DO som [...]

    2. Consolidation of essaysIf you are coming to this book expecting a storyline, you may be disappointed. This is a collection of essays circling around the central theme. For me, this provided a method by which I could ponder the thoughts within each of the essays and decide for myself how I might apply them.

    3. Patrick Rhone is a brilliant man who's writings and ramblings offer deep insight into us as individuals and the human race on a whole. In this book he writes about the concept of "Enough" which is in essence the concept of balance and moderation, leading us to consider our base needs and what is really required of us to be successful in life. Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, he writes about our never ending search to find Enough; an ever-changing metric that we must continually find fo [...]

    4. A collection of short, but thought-provoking essays. I didn't always agree with the author, but his arguments are well-written and enjoyable to read. Some of the essays are informational, others instructional, others more meditative.I own a print copy of the book and its one of the few that stays on my nightstand if I need a little something to ruminate on before going to sleep (especially some of the essays that focus on gratitude and reflection).

    5. I wanted to give this book more than three stars, as I liked many of the ideas from Rhone and I knew his writing from his blogs But having just finished reading "Free Will" by Sam Harris, I can't help but compare the books with each other. And this comparison shows clearly that while Harris is a fabulous writer, Rhone is not quite there yet.This is a good book with good ideas. Not great, but good.

    6. A nice collection of essays At times it felt a bit scattered; I think I may have enjoyed a more through-composed book on a single subject along these lines. Still, some really great thoughts to chew on.

    7. Informative bookI like that the book made me think differently then I usually do. It made me more aware of how to spent my time constructively. Also, the book was very positive and encouraging on ways to change.

    8. Lots of wisdom in this book, along with practical steps that can be implemented. It did start to feel a bit repetitive in the latter third.

    9. An easy to read compilation of articles, this is a nice criticism of consumerism and technology creating a divide between people. All his points resonate d with me.

    10. Yes, because what the world needs now is more pontifications from middle class white guys who own Macs. Patrick Rhone has suggestions to help you become a better, preppier, middle-classier Mac owner: stop dicking around on the Internet so much, read a book now and then, learn to really appreciate those interpersonal moments, have some Deep Thoughts and don't get distracted by books like this. Kidding; that last one is mine. Pay me.It's not a bad book: fairly pleasant light reading, and not parti [...]

    11. All we really need is enough. My enough will be very different from yours. Patrick Rhone has written a book that allows us to reflect on what our own version of “enough” is — and it can do that for us whenever we need to be reminded of that, or when our “enough” has changed. This book is a must-read and a must-have on your bookshelf so that you can return to it whenever you feel the need. Even one essay will bring a sense of order to the chaos because each essay compels the reader to l [...]

    12. It's good to read fresh new views on simplicity after reading those of Leo, The Minimalists Duane Elgin and others. The book is an easy read, the views and topics are easily digestable and the style is quite impressive. But I found some repetition and some superfluous stuff (as per moi).Still a good read and worth buying.

    13. I'm a very avid follower of the blog of Patrick Rhone so I had pretty high expectations for this book. But I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would, primarily because I always felt like I wanted more elaboration of each chapter which to me we're an awkward length between an extended blog post and an essay.Still a solid read though.

    14. I really like Rhone's writing style (something I knew going into this). It's a bit like watching a fireplace video on--hushed, calming, welcoming, and on the screen (this was an eBook). Enough reminded me to be conscious of life, the internet, and technology. I'd have liked a bit more depth on some of this, and can hope that his next book will provide that depth. I'll certainly get that one, too.

    15. This is an excellent series of essays by Patrick Rhone that explores what it means to have Enough in all our life. From the clothes we own to how we check email get ready for a thoughtful exploration of contentedness in our digital age without simply advocating ascetism.

    16. I'm in love with it. Truly! and also with him.He's a very great storyteller and what he comments, I mean, are issues that turn around my mind and everyone's life every damn day.Completly inflame :)

    17. This read more as a series of musings than a book. Written in 2012, it also came across as a bit dated - the reader would have had a different experience back then. Still, some good advice (take a break from social media, value the things you have, less is more).

    18. Vond dit een leuk boek om te lezen, ook al is het eigenlijk een verzameling van "blogposts" over minimalisme enz. Leest vlot.

    19. Love it. A book that actually made me think about my life and my choices that wasn't some kind of flaky self-help book. Very nice.
