About the Author
Paddi Newlin earned a B.S degree (in psychology) from Bryan College, and a Masters from Berea Theological Seminary. She is a Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC), and is currently working toward her doctorate. Paddi has worked with FlyLady and Company since its inception in 1999, but she has known the Flylady—her sister, Marla Cilley—all her life. A resident of Chattanooga, Tenn., she is the mother of three and a proud grandmother of three. Ken Hartley is a graduate of Union University in Jackson, Tenn., with a B.A. in music and drama. He has served as a Pastor and Counselor for over 25 years. He also has traveled the world performing as professional illusionist in Europe, Asia, and South America, as well as all over the United States (including Las Vegas). Ken makes his home in Chattanooga, Tenn. He and his wife, Stacey, have been married for twenty-three years. They have four children. Jessica Oliver has worked for Flylady and Company for ten years, but like her mother Paddi, she has been involved with her aunt the Flylady all her life. Jessica is the mother of one, and makes her home in Chattanooga.

This book, to the right person, would be life transforming in a way that others can't. It is also reasonably entertaining. The FlyLady method includes so much more than mere housework, yet this small book can explain the whole ethic involved. Try it. It works.
It was all I expected: simply written, and very 'touchy-feeley' in that American way. And a blatant advert for FlyLady. It's not hidden or subtle - it's there and no mistaking that they want you to visit the website. At times I felt that it detracted from the story a bit, but then the story basically is all about the FlyLady system. Thankfully the book wasn't trying to flog cleaning products incessantly like the emails, otherwise I'd have had to drop another star or two!
All in, it's not the best book in the world but it's something a lot of us can relate to, even though the stereotypical characters were slightly unrealistic at times. I'm not sure how much motivation it has given me, but it certainly hasn't done any harm. If you love the emails and testimonials then you'll love this. I should have trusted my instinct rather the the other reviews and saved my money but it wasn't the worst purchase in the world... At least it wasn't be paper copy that would become more clutter!
and can read it without having the clutter of another book.
It is a light read, doesn't take long, but has some deeper answers if you are looking for them.
The sort of book worth keeping and reading again from time to time.
If you do need help to get organised, tho, and have found the usual "how to get organised" books just don't do it for you, 'Hidden Treasures' is a gentle and interesting introduction to the Flylady system, in the form of a story.
Part of the story involves a junk/antiques shop which features at the start of the book and in a section at the end (which i specially liked).
The main part of the book is a diary describing how Gina improves her life, using the Flylady methods. The diary is being read by Courtney who then also uses Flylady to get her life on track.
'Hidden Treasures' gives a lot of Flylady info but wouldn't be enough, on its own, to get yourself organised. It could inspire you, tho, to look at Flylady's website (which is free, of course) for more info on her tips for doing things by baby steps and how not to get overwhelmed.
