The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing (Unabridged)

by Marie Kondo

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles? Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo's clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house "spark joy" (and which don't), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo's newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home-and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

Amazed

This book is absolutely incredible. I can't wait to listen to it again with my partner and clean out my entire house! Addicting!

Good book. Terrible audio.

Marie Kondo's approach is unusual in two distinct ways. It's highly influenced by Japanese animistic beliefs and the author's time spent as a shrine maiden, and it's different from other organizing methods in its intensity and approach, claiming to allow you to tidy only once, and once and for all. Putting aside the religious aspect (and Kondo's prescriptive femininity), the approach is economically and psychologically more helpful than other purging methods, and so I wish to recommend the book itself.

However, do not get the audio version unless it is absolutely necessary for you. The narrator is very monotone, expressing boredom between slips of a countrified accent. Her quoting and attempts at expressing any emotion beyond dull existence are half-hearted, if not condescending, which is a shame. It's evident from the writing that Kondo cares very deeply for the subject. She deserved an equally caring narrator.

Best book ever

Despite reading reviews I bought audiobook. She is a gift from heaven everything she says is abs true..!!!! I've bought so many declutter books it truly changes your life.
