It was inevitable. Just a matter of time. Leo Babauta is one of the most prolific and talented writers I have ever seen, so coming up with a print book is a natural extension to his popular blog, Zen Habits.
I stopped counting a while ago, but if I am not wrong the man grew his blog to over 80,000 RSS subscribers in just two years. As you could have guessed, he does have some interesting things to say, and people are eager to listen.
The title of his book is , The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essential…in Business and in Life.
I have not read it yet, but it is on my Amazon wish list (it costs $11.53). I am sure I will like it though. First of all because other people already are. It is in the Amazon best selling list right now. Secondly, because I agree with most of Leo’s ideas, and especially with his minimalist approach to life.
Finally, it is also nice to see a blogger that is going mainstream. I believe this book will be a huge success, and the cornerstone of such success is Leo’s blog. It helped him to put his expertise on the table, and also to create a very engaged community around it.
This is yet another example of how any popular blog can be used as springboard to other projects.
