More About the Author
"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 book was a perfect read for me.
I read the reviews, I was, frankly, scared. Or scornful. I thought, great, this is another one of those books where it tells me I'll feel OHSOGOOD if I get rid of my beloved stuff. This book is going to wind me up the wrong way. It can't possibly help. It won't understand that I need a thousand books in piles on the floor! It's going to mock my My Little Pony collection.
It doesn't. This book is adorable. Genius. It takes you by the hand and wades you through everything you own and just...lifts the weight of all of it, so much so that you realise you haven't noticed just how heavy it's been all these years. Kondo is so kind, so wise, and so very right about things, and with a gloriously Japanese edge of anthropomorphism, coupled with a slice of do-as-you-would-be-done-by that I found so incredibly helpful.
By the time I was halfway through the read, I had reorganised my wardrobe exactly as Kondo recommends. It's been three weeks and everything is just as I put it that day. It's easy to get dressed. It's stupidly easy to put things away. There are no heaps of clothes on any floor or shelf. This has never happened to me, not even since childhood. This is something I'm sticking with forever.
When I'd finished the book, I was flying through drawers and boxes of unmentionable rubbish, able to really, clearly, easily see what I wanted - truly wanted - and what I didn't. I'm so completely thrilled to have discovered this book.Read more ›
