In this insightful book, Palmer shows how to get rid of the things in our lives that no longer serve us. By tossing out these unneeded items, we are also eliminating their negative influences, freeing up energy, and unlocking our potential. Loaded with inspiring anecdotes and practical tips, Clutter Busting is based on the premise that your things are not sacred, but you are.

I have a problem with clutter. I’ve read many books that have inspired me to throw stuff out,but this is the first book that explains what cluttered really is and how freeing it is to be rid of it. I know I will listen to this book many times as I tackle different areas of my home and life, and this will be the last time I will need to do it. I’m sure I will not let the clutter back in. The author reads and writes with such compassion that it brought me to tears many times.
So Mr. Palmer, if you still read your reviews, thank you from the bottom of my heart. This book came to me at a time when I needed it most!

I don't know what the humans are so cranky about. Their enclosures are large, they ingest over 1,000 calories per day, and they're allowed to mate. Plus, they have me: an Autonomous Servile Unit, housed in a mobile/bipedal chassis. I do my job well: keep the humans healthy and happy.

I am not sure why I got Rob Dierks first book, it's every thing I usually stay away from, science fiction, read by the author. he is pretty amazing. The stories are original and fast paced and laugh out loud funny. Go ahead and download all three, you won't be disappointed. All three have heart and soul and make you feel better about your fellow human beings.

As the city prepares to celebrate Queen Victoria's golden jubilee, Veronica Speedwell is marking a milestone of her own. After burying her spinster aunt, the orphaned Veronica is free to resume her world travels in pursuit of scientific inquiry - and the occasional romantic dalliance. As familiar with hunting butterflies as she is fending off admirers, Veronica wields her butterfly net and a hatpin with equal aplomb, and with her last connection to England gone, she intends to embark upon the journey of a lifetime.

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

I enjoyed reading the series and I love Barbara Rosenblat, my only complaint is that Barbara makes Mrs. Pollifax sound like shes in her 90's instead of her 60's. She gives her a very feeble voice when Mrs.. Pollifax is anything but feeble!

Other than that I love this series and Ms. Rosenblat.
