I want to buy the full book now!

I really liked the taster and helped Kickstart my tidying up process, but I want to get the full book so I can do everything right! The narration was a little bit robotic for my taste, but pretty good nonetheless.

Now maybe I will read the full book that I bought

hearing this audio summary has left me very excited for today to immediately dive into this project ( which I have already begun )! Maybe I will read the book version that I bought 6 months ago; but not today. This audio summary has saved me. Thank you

a decent summary

I don't feel I need to buy the book after this. this has quick concise explanations of each chapter. since nice and intetesting ideas, but I'm not interested in being a Marie Kondo excited fan

About her feelings about the method

Although the author does summarize the method somewhat, the bulk of the information is about her feelings about this method. There were also some redundancies. I would have preferred the summary about the actual method itself. I took a chance because it was $2 less. Still helpful.

Brevity

The brevity of this synopsis had rendered the book almost gutless. I recommend you read or listen to the original book for greater satisfaction.

this is false advertising :(

I'm very disappointed I had bought THE SUMMARY of the book I intended to buy.
then I realized there are several summaries at the online store and I couldn't find my ORIGINAL book. I had to look for the writer s name. :(
and lose my money with the SUMMARY mokery
