Personal Organizing Coach Marin Rose argues that we're all in a toxic relationship with our stuff and that we've got some serious thinking to do before we can expect to make lasting, positive change. In this book, she explores the common emotional barriers to people reducing consumption and ownership, from personal feelings of anxiety, guilt, and regret, to our faith in the omnipresent American illusion that stuff is a direct path to happiness.
Marin guides us in a thorough examination of our individual priorities and goals, and helps us answer honestly to the self-deceptive thoughts that keep us beholden to clutter. If you're thinking about committing to organized living - to save time and money, reduce stress, and make space in your heart and home for the wonders yet to come - recognizing and working through these barriers are the first crucial steps.

I found ithe author's style judgey, without being particularly enlightening. In other words, not tough-love "own your s***" judgey, just "I dislike my own clients" judgey. Made it half-way through, so it might improve. Quite repetitive, in a very short book. It may have made a better blog post.
Get to the point of helping the reader to release "stuff", rather than judging her/him for having bought it in the first place... much perseveration around marketing and branding here. I get the feeling the author's mother had one too many Coach purses for her liking.
Didn't mind the author's narration, just her content and style.

Thank you for writing this book. I thought it might be too short to have an impact on me but it delivered a clear and concise message! Like its message, this book is clutter free and showed me less IS MORE with a delivery that was compassionate and gentle.
It rocks and I started decluttering quilt free immediately.
