It's aimed at women and the author is very style-conscious, so there are a lot of pages about style and grooming, which I really liked, but not everyone will. Despite the drawbacks, it's a highly enjoyable and entertaining book with some very worthwhile ideas, and it made a positive contribution to my life. Some parts will no doubt irritate you, but you can cherry-pick the good bits. And the design is absolutely beautiful. The cover and the fonts are gorgeous - look out for the join between the lower-case "F" and "L", it is stunning.
She doesn't ask you to undertake any major upheavals but suggests simple ways to begin to live a quieter, more centred, saner life. She uses principles from Japanese life and culture so if you admire the beauty of Japanese interiors, china and simple delicious food, then this is the book for you. It will take you on a wonderful journey towards being happier, to living life on your own terms. You will learn how to say NO nicely, to all the things that don't give you real pleasure and satisfaction, including demands of friends and family.
You can start today and ever so slowly begin to change whatever it is that doesn't make you happy. She allows you to give away all the things that hold you back and offers you a clean fresh start. I did it, I am still on the journey but feeling so much better.
If you love minimalism her advice will appeal, but not if you like a bit of colour. Interiors must only be black, white or grey *sigh*
Throw away your blankets. When it's cold at night you only need a cashmere pashmina to wrap yourself in. The smugness will keep you warm.
All you should have in your handbag is lipstick, ID and cash. Not very practical advice. How are you going to have immaculate Zen hair without a hairbrush? What do you wipe your childs nose with, the ID or the cash?
There are some good ideas buried in the book, but delivered in a haughty manner which grates with me.
