Publisher's Summary

Transform your home into a permanently clear and clutter-free space with the incredible KonMari Method. Japan's expert declutterer and professional cleaner Marie Kondo will help you tidy your rooms once and for all with her inspirational step-by-step method.
The key to successful tidying is to tackle your home in the correct order, to keep only the things you really love and to do it all at once - and quickly. After that for the rest of your life you need only to choose what to keep and what to discard.
The KonMari Method will not just transform your space. Once you have your house in order, you will find that your whole life will change. You can feel more confident, you can become more successful, and you can have the energy and motivation to create the life you want. You will also have the courage to move on from the negative aspects of your life: you can recognise and finish a bad relationship; you can stop feeling anxious; you can finally lose weight.
Marie Kondo's method is based on a 'once cleaned, never messy again' approach. If you think that such a thing is impossible, then you should definitely listen to this compelling audiobook.

Felt like a self-assertive autobiography

I was looking forward to the hyped "domestic wisdom" of the book. I was however, disappointed after the first chapter. While the book starts you off with a very motivational chapter, it gets very repetitive and pushy right after that. I had to power through to finish the book infact because the material was beginning to sound so stretched out and unnecessarily lengthened. The narrator did an amazing job in every aspect, but the material *of* the book was intolerable due to the amount of boasting and self-assertion that was overbearingly repeated over and over again. All in all, I walked away with just two benefits: motivation to complete a decluttering process I had already started and a new way to fold and arrange clothes in drawers which I find to be aesthetically pleasing. If you wish to take tips and pointers, I would recommend one of the summaries available on Audible or hopping onto youtube for a quick search on decluttering the Marie Kondo way. You will get everything you need to know from either minus the boring stories, insufferable reptitiveness, and bragging.

I loved it! It is very enjoyable. Great narrator, good style. I am thankful Mari Kondo has put her experiences compiled and explained in practical and comprehensive manner while explaining the most simple and best method on tidyng. Indeed, one can be able much joy and peace in typing this way in particular. I downloaded this audio book on Friday and have just finished listening to it today. I started using Kon Mari's method right away through the narrative. I have yet to finish the task of tidying but I already feel so refreshed.
I recommend this book 100% I will gladly extend to my parents all that I've learned through this course. Thank you.
