Books by Sarah Susanka

The Not So Big Life:
Making Room for What Really Matters

(hardcover & paperback)
(Random House, 2007)

Through her Not So Big House presentations and book series, Sarah has helped readers understand that the sense of “home” they’re seeking has almost nothing to do with quantity and everything to do with quality. In The Not So Big Life, Sarah uses this same set of notions to explain that we can feel “at home” in our lives only when what we do reflects who we truly are. The book unveils a process for changing the way we live by fully inhabiting each moment of our lives and by showing up completely in whatever it is we are doing.
