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.

It seems unrealistic to clean this way. I am glad I listened to it once. There is some good advice and food for thought. I am glad I listened to it once but would most likely not do so again. the reader was a bit robotic. if you listen to the sample that is what the whole book sounds like.

"The dirty little secret about most organizing advice is that it's written by organized people," says blogger, speaker, and decluttering expert Dana K. White. "But that's not how my brain works. I'm lost on page three." Dana blogs at A Slob Comes Clean, chronicling her successes and failures with her self-described "deslobification process". In the beginning she used the name Nony (short for aNONYmous), because she was sharing her deep, dark slob secret. Now she has truly come clean - with not only her real name but the strategies she has developed.

I always feel like they are talking to some mytical person in most cleaning books, and that advice is for those people who already know how to keep a clean house. this book is for those of us who struggle and hate house cleaning for real. I totally recommend this book

Society is conditioned to think of murderers and predators as men, but in this fascinating book, Peter Vronsky exposes and investigates the phenomenon of women who kill - and the political, economic, social, and sexual implications.

The book was interesting but I wasn't a fan of the authors descriptions of women. especially fat woman basically if your fat you are unattractive and more likely to be a serial killer. also woman who disagree with the author are raging feminists. I would not listen to this again and I wish I had bought a different book.
