Preview:

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, an organization expert, details her KonMari Method, a rigorous cleaning program that promises swift, profound results. Kondo's beliefs are simple and straightforward: clutter makes your household - and your life - feel chaotic. If you rid your home of clutter, you'll achieve organizational bliss. Permanently. The entire process takes about six months, with some tasks that should be completed in one sitting, and others that may take days or weeks.

Kondo's recommendation is to handle each and every object in your home - literally picking it up and holding it in your hands - to consider whether or not it "sparks joy." If the object makes you happy, it's a keeper. If it doesn't, it should be discarded or recycled. It's essential to frame this decision as "What should I keep?" rather than "What should I throw away?" Once you have culled your belongings in this way, Kondo estimates you should have only about one-third of what you started with, perhaps less.

A superbly enlightening book

The Japanese Art which will be taught even in this summary audiobook, might seriously take organizing your house to the next level. What’s the worst that could happen anyway.Excellent book, easy to read, thought provoking. A superbly enlightening book which makes a lot more sense than my usual methods in the market. Well worth the price.

Five stars Book

Book exceeded my expectations. At long last I can let go of "things ". I have more time to do the things that add joy to my life. I no longer have to spend hours trying to find items in the house which were hidden by clutter. My blood pressure has improved. Life-Changing is an understatement!

fascinating listen

I have well over 100 books in my Audible library now, and while I came across several really excellent ones, this was the one that compelled me to write a review for the first time. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and have done so already. It is a fascinating listen

Analysis is Good

The simplistic yet profound methods & thought processes introduced in this book have finally inspired me, not overwhelmed me. It was presented in a manner I could understand and relate to. I have started with my own clothes first and will continue with MY possessions before I attempt to tidy-up my family. Well Analysed .
