This book is worthless. As an example, in the chapter on organizing the kitchen, after acknowledging that YOUR space may be tiny - more of a kitchenette or a galley kitchen - he advises you to break your kitchen into SIX distinct zones (preparation, cooking and baking, beverages, food storage/pantry, tableware, and cleanup) as if we had all the room in the world. He then takes pages and pages to list the 53 categories (I kid you not!) that he has in HIS kitchen, not counting the many, many items he stores in each of four drawers he has in his kitchen cabinet which he tells us is diagonally opposite the six0foot0loong stainless-steel counter unit from a retired diner. What good does that do me? This guy has no clue. He wastes space with helpful hints like "What a Closet Is and Isn't" and then tells us about things we might find in each of SEVEN categories of closets (the first is "Entry/Mudroom: outerwear, foul-weather gear, sporting goods and equipment, pet items"). This is somebody who's out to make a buck and offers no real practical advice or help. The subtitle "Kick the Clutter Habit and Completely Organize Your Life for Good" is a cruel joke.

Did not continue to read past the first couple of pages. The author refers to God, as a 'she'. Sorry, lost my interest right there. The first reference to God as a she, I had to reread the sentence couple times, thinking that it was a mistake. Then when it showed up again in the next page or so, I just shut the book. Just posting this, in case someone else who wants to read it and believes in God, the Father, would not want to pick this up. I do not find this funny at all. My honest review and opinion.

Not illustrated! If you want a book of pretty pictures to dream about, keep looking. If you want an item based sort-it-and-organize-it, check this out. Contains practical suggestions for what questions to answer in your quest to decide what stays, suggestions suitable for any space on how to deal with what does stay, and addresses the mindset needed to prevent unwanted/unneeded stuff from finding it's way back.
