The Simplicity Principle: Six Steps Towards Clarity in a Complex World – Julia Hobsbawm, 2020

Julia Hobsbawm possesses a particular talent for calling out the zeitgeist.

Julia Hobsbawm possesses a particular talent for calling out the zeitgeist. Her previous book, Fully Connected, explored how the internet has created mental overload, and undermined our ability to maintain positive ‘social health’. 

 

The Simplicity Principle builds on this. Exploring the myriad ways in which modern life is becoming infinitely more complex, Hobsbawm presents a roadmap for how to simplify, to survive and thrive in the hyper-connected world of the 2020s.

 

Sometimes, a key part of the struggle is giving a voice and a label to the inner turmoil we feel. 

 

Written before the COVID-19 outbreak (which adds its own game-changing layer of complexity), The Simplicity Principle is a breath of fresh air. It’s a manifesto for managing the unmanageable, and we feel all the calmer for having read it.
