    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.

    Born to a black mother and a white father in 1984, Noah and his family navigated many unusual challenges, on top of the usual hardships faced by black families in that time and place. Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends). His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor.

In the book's preface, Greene argues that, at least on the surface, the quest for power has been demonized, the end result of a culture that frowns upon those who seem too eager to get too far ahead in life.

    In an alternative version of America, a neo-conservative, alt-right type terrorist group took over in a coup — they shot the President, machine-gunned Congress, got the army to declare a state of emergency, instituted martial law, suspended the Constitution, and instilled a totalitarian theocracy. Although this group claimed their taking over was only temporary, America became the Republic of Gilead.
