According to the American Psychological Association, more than one in five Americans experience extreme stress on a daily basis. In an age when most people spend more time looking at a computer screen than out a window, and when human interaction flies by at the speed of an email, it’s no wonder we’re a society searching for a sense of meaning and purpose.

Now, Swedish expert Agneta Nyholm Winqvist offers a ray of hope in her succinct and unadorned introduction to wabi sabi. An Eastern philosophy with roots dating back 5,000 years, “wabi sabi” at its most elegant base is the search for “timeless wisdom.” The antithesis of a too-much society, wabi sabi philosophy has helped guide millions of practitioners to a more fulfilling, efficient, and stress-free lifestyle. Applicable to almost every stressful circumstance, Winqvist’s Wabi Sabi will teach readers to search for their own inner calm, while allowing them to embrace the beauty and simplicity of everyday life. From the businesswoman looking to de-stress and refocus, to the family struggling with finances, to the young college student seeking a better future—Wabi Sabi has something for everyone.
Agneta Nyholm Winqvist has worked for many years as a lecturer in everyday psychology and personal development. She has founded the Nordic School of Feng Shui, which organizes courses and training with feng shui teachers from around the world. She has written several bestselling books on feng shui.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More Self Help Than Wabi Sabi A disappointing book that does not delve into wabi sabi deeply enough to make the most of its principles in a self-help context. There are several other self-help topics that get featured in the discussion but none of them get integrated into an effective discussion of wabi sabi or how it can be applied to improving your lifestyle or dealing with situations. The digressions away from the discussion of wabi sabi are quite diffusing and at times disturbing.
