What did you love best about The Hoarder in You?
Don't let the title fool you. This book is also for clutter on any level. It is MUCH better than "The Magic of Tidying Up"
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hoarder in You?
This book doesn't tell you what kind of organizational system to use or how to fold your shirts. What it does tell you is why you have the clutter you have, and how you can deal with it on a psychological level first. That is the ONLY way change will last.

I love this book, and like many I have listened several times. If you are searching for a book of this nature, then probably you or someone you know have a bit of a problem with stuff. This book worked for me because there are many versions of how and why we lose control of our living environments. Dr. Zasio will no doubt hit on something that exactly describes your situation, and she has specific suggestions of how to approach it. I had heard of those trash-filled homes you see on TV - that's totally not me. I don't buy unrealistic amounts of stuff that I can't use, either. But as it turns out, I have difficulty letting go of things. Hmmm! That can be a problem as time goes by. Dr. Zasio does not brag about instant success, nor does she propose unrealistic solutions. Her philosophy is clearly centered around the person, not the room. The anecdotes from her case-files are filled with compassion, respect, and positive change.
The narrator is perfect for this book. Her performance is appropriate to giving a dose of reality to listeners who may be struggling. If you are curious about clutter or hoarding, and have found other books to be lacking in depth or inapplicable to your situation, then you might enjoy this one.
