Product description

Review

Its strength is its simplicity. -- Richard Lloyd Parry, The Times

All hail the new decluttering queen Marie Kondo, whose mess-busting bestseller has prompted a craze for tidying in homes across the world ... one proper clear out is all you need for the rest of your life., Good Housekeeping

Do I love it? If not, chuck it. Marie Kondo promises that by following her KonMari Method I will be a neatnik, forever ... I decide The Life-changing Magic of Tidying will become my bible. -- Brigid Moss, Red magazine

[It is] enough to salute Kondo for her recognition of something quietly profound: that mess is often about unhappiness, and that the right kind of tidying can be a kind of psychotherapy for the home as well as for the people in it., The Times

The tidiness regimen prescribed by Japanese author Marie Kondo is a great idea. It’s so great that maybe we need to expand its reach, Guardian --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"Ms. Kondo delivers her tidy manifesto like a kind of Zen nanny, both hortatory and animistic."--The New York Times

"A literal how-to-heave-ho, and I recommend it for anyone who struggles with the material excess of living in a privileged society. (Thanks to Ms. Kondo, I kiss my old socks goodbye.) . . . To show you how serious my respect for Ms. Kondo is: if I ever get a tattoo, it will say, Spark Joy!"--Jamie Lee Curtis, Time

"This book lives up to its title: it will change your life."--B.J. Novak, People

"This book is a cult. A totally reasonable, scary cult that works, doesn't kill people (a bonus), but does drastically change your life. In this case -- for the better."--BuzzFeed

"The most organized woman in the world."--PureWow

"The Japanese expert's ode to decluttering is simple and easy to follow."--Vogue

"Her voice . . . is by turns stern and enchanted, like a fairy godmother for socks."--The Wall Street Journal

"Reading it, you glimpse a glittering mental freedom from the unread/uncrafted/unworn, buyer's remorse, the nervous eyeing of real estate listings. Life's overwhelm, conquered."--The Atlantic

"All hail the new decluttering queen Marie Kondo, whose mess-busting bestseller has prompted a craze for tidying in homes across the world . . . one proper clear out is all you need for the rest of your life."--Good Housekeeping (UK)

"How could this pocket-sized book, which has already sold over 2 million copies and sits firmly atop the New York Times Best Seller list, make such a big promise? Here's the short answer: Because it's legit. . . . Kondo's method really can change your life -- if you let it."--Today

"Kondo challenges you to ask yourself whether each object you have is achieving a purpose. Is it propelling you forward or holding you in the past?"--USA Today

"A brief and bracing practical guide to tidying up your home."--Financial Times

"[It is] enough to salute Kondo for her recognition of something quietly profound: that mess is often about unhappiness, and that the right kind of tidying can be a kind of psychotherapy for the home as well as for the people in it . . . Its strength is its simplicity."--The London Times
