This book was thrust upon me by my sister. I really enjoyed a lot of parts of this book but it gets really spiritual. It's fine it was a little over the top for me. It did motivate me to work on decreasing the clutter in my life so I guess it was effective. We'll have to see if it becomes a long term part of my life but it was motivating and yesterday I went through most of my clothes and got rid of a garbage bag and a half so far.
