- By: Marie Kondo
- Narrated by: Emily Woo Zeller
- Length: 4 hrs and 50 mins
Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.
I both love and hate this life changing book

Okay Concepts but Horribly Written and Narrated
Narration is almost as if read by a computer program with random bursts of emphasis. Writing is self-absorbed and redundant about a simple subject. The concepts of this book, although extremely helpful, can be summarized onto one sheet of paper, and this book is an obvious money-grab typical of the modern guru-giddy world.

- Length: 10 hrs and 9 mins
Chuck Palahniuk, the author of the New York Times best-sellers Fight Club and Lullaby, is known for his edgy novels, and Rant is no exception. Palahniuk presents this fictional biography of Buster "Rant" Casey in a series of vignettes told by the people who knew him best. As intricate as a spider web, Rant succeeds in recounting the story of one man's life only through the eyes of others. But the question remains, "Who was Rant Casey?"

Innovative, and perfect for audio book!
The cast of narrators employed to enact this book gives a perfect example of the possibilities of audio books. Must listen for any audio book enthusiast. I might have a hard time listening to any other fiction after being exposed to this great production!
