Book Review of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

reviewed on + 620 more book reviews

If you are willing to believe the following, then you may like this book:

* Clothing has feelings, as well as a detectable aura

* Tools, books, CDs for the most part shouldn't be kept around just in case you might need or want them

* Old coins have been "stripped of their dignity"

* You only need to declutter once in your whole life

For me, the book was fanciful and unconvincing.
