The perspective of the anthology "Less Is More" is that of the editor, Goldian VanderBroeck, who goes to great lengths in proving her belief that the simple life is the most worthwhile and satisfying one possible. She has obviously gone to extreme efforts in accumulating hundreds of quotes and excerpts from the words and writings of a broad range of people of note in proving her thesis. VanderBroeck has gathered her "evidence" from the far corners of the world and has extended her search to all recordable history, going back as far as Seneca who lived in Rome between 4 BC and AD 45 and served in Nero's court.
