Kind words from a reader

It's been awhile since I received an email regarding my book The Simplicity Primer, so when I got the following, I was so charmed I asked permission to post it here.

Hi Patrice,
Your book is amazing! I thought when I bought it that it was going to be a self sufficiency book about living in the country, etc. But I am glad that it is so much more than that. The best chapter so far (not quite done reading it yet) for me has been the chapter about husbands. I have used your suggestions and what a difference (for the better) it has made in my relationship with my husband, not to mention how much more help he has been to me since I tried your 'problem solving' approach for him instead of just nagging him to do something. We live on a farm so the more help I can get from him, the easier it is for me to get all of the my farm chores done plus work at my day job as a telecommuting software developer. Also the Silly Guilt, and the paper towel on the public restroom door describe me perfectly - sometimes I think we must be related! Just wanted to let you know I am really enjoying the book and plan to loan it to my daughter-in-law to help her figure out my son (clone of my husband) when I am finished. Thanks for a great read.

Ain't that sweet?


  1. Now that's what I call an endorsement... and straight from the heart!

    Very good!

    You're a multi-generational blessing, Patrice.


  2. I'm off to the library! And it's time to get my own copy! Can't wait to start reading it. It just so happens, some reading time opened up this month!

  3. It is a fabulous book, I've read. It's on my book stand as a reference book.
