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.

I really enjoyed this book. We are in the process of building a tiny house and working on decluttering our 1300 square foot home is a challenge and this book made me feel so much better about tackling the issue.

I did enjoy this book. much of the content spoke to me, woke me up, encouraged me to take control of my life and take action on my goals and dreams. My only real criticism is that there were a lot of times that I felt like I just couldn't relate, at all, or really follow along because it was so focused on being a good mother. I am not a mother and have chosen not to be one. More power to those that do! I salute you!!! If you're a mama and need some guidance and encouragement... this book is bomb!!! But for me, I got bored with the stories. Call me a terrible person... her testimony of her experiences were gripping but they didn't resonate with me... so I lost interest for a great deal of the book. However, overall I enjoyed it and will likely listen to it again, I'll just skip through the parts that don't speak to me. I loved the author's voice both physically as she read and in her story to call to action you living in your truth and speaking it too.

This is one of the best audio books I've ever listened to. I enjoyed it immensely and got a lot out of the content and suggestions. I especially loved all the pop culture references, cursing, and overall kick in the pants.

Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a f*cking miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.
