The Letting Go Ebook, Free

By Leo Babauta

Today marks 41 years of wonderful life that I’ve lived, and as a birthday present to all of you, I’m publishing a free ebook: The One Skill: How Mastering the Art of Letting Go Will Change Your Life.

Last year I started a tradition of giving people gifts on my birthday, to celebrate the fact of being alive, and my gratitude for those in my life — I published the Little Book of Contentment for free a year ago.

This year I continue the tradition with my new ebook on letting go: The One Skill.

It’s about learning the skill of letting go, and how that will help you with every problem in your life. From stress to procrastination to habit change to loss and much more.

It’s an amazing skill, and the better I get at it, the better I am at life, the happier I am.

You can download the book for free here: The One Skill ebook (pdf).

I’ve also exported it as an epub (download) but not tested it yet. And here’s the mobi file for Kindle & other ebook readers.
