Short, but doesn't add much
~Disclaimer: I received a free audiobook copy of this book.~
While I think it is interesting to look at these four different philosophies(KonMari Method, Wabi-Sabi Method, Lagom, and Hygge), I feel like Zoe Mckey isn’t bringing that much new information. Explaining Marie Kondos folding method is not providing new insight. It feels like when someone block quotes another author in a book to up their page count. When a book is so short, things like that tend to feel thrown in without purpose and make the book feel disorganized.
I’m familiar with all four of these concepts and was interested to see how she tied them to minimalism, but it just didn’t land for me. If you aren’t familiar with the concepts it may introduce them to you in an accessible way. You could also just watch some youtube videos about them.
The narrator does a good job and has consistent pacing. Her speech might be a bit fast for some listeners, but I didn’t mind it.
Interesting perhaps, but not especially useful.
If you're looking for actionable advice, then perhaps try elsewhere. If you're just beginning to address the problem and don't mind hearing the author explain their take on a few minimalist philosophies, then this relatively short book could be what you want.
the books gives so hard and fast ideas on ways to reduce stress and clutter. I am not in love with the narrator's speech pattern but she zings through the material quickly

Weirdly off topic most of the time
This talks a lot off topic, not really helpful or what I was looking for.
