Publisher's Summary

The purpose of this audiobook is to declutter your life, choose best in class examples to follow, and do the small things to make your life more pleasant. This lecture was given at Wellesley College about how to enter the "real world," which the author emphasized college certainly is, and make their life better. The "Just Do It" philosophy, promoted by Nike and adopted by so many others, permeates the book. Good today is better than great tomorrow, with the author commenting that waiting for great tomorrow usually leads to just falling further behind. The tracks deal with simplifying your life as Henry David Thoreau pointed out was so essential to one's well being. This is a how to book with suggestions ranging from keeping a coat hanger in your car to keep your sweater or coat clean and neat, as well as available for weather changes, to a 24 month plan to put your life into total order. The audiobook emphasizes making conscious choices of what you allow or keep in your life in order to eliminate those things you do not find worth the effort and/or expense to do.

Don't Waste Your Money

The speaker is just barely tollerable to listen to. He gasp for air between sentences which is and only slightly annoying. He mixes politics with a bad example regarding Presidents on such a general level I thought I was listeng to Rush. He compares Regan who in the history of our country got the US into more debt than it has ever had since inception in just his first term. Then during his second term doubled that total in his second term, not to mention ethical concerns. Clinton who with the democratic congress was able to get us out of the depression or recession depending on your economics background and made the US significantly more prosperous than the country has ever been. I order a book hoping it has some knowlege. Everything is basic cookie cutter. Add the inacurate right wing comments. Very annoying.

This guy is an idiot- (sexist, prejudice, dumb)

I am not going to waist a lot of time on this...

Quotes like the following say it all: "I tell my daughters that no man likes to hear whining, so don't do it ok..." or "I like real paper calendars because you can see them..." He also talks about how democrats are less organized than republicans how you should keep a coat hanger in your car (gee, thanks).

He seems to say "just do it" after each item one might like to improve on, such as "Look, you need a clean apartment, so just do it, ok..." or "look, just don't multi-task... (good luck.)

Buying his will be a waist of time.

Can someone give me my $3 back?

strangely unorganised

A very relaxed book, more like a one sided conversation based on the experience of one individual. Not completely hopeless but outdated. Very American and nothing of any substance or depth.
