    1. I'm about halfway done this book, and although I've liked many parts of it, my focus is starting to flag. The problem with many of Ms. Stack's suggestions is that only a very uptight, organized person would ever do them. I guess this is the basic problem with books on organization - they're written by organized people. These people can't imagine what a lazy weekend would even feel like, they are so busy scrubbing the floors. It's like they are look down from on-high on us morally inferior messy [...]

    2. Somehow I find great comfort in that mine is not the only bitchy review of this book on . So I like organization porn as much as any straight man I know but this book is overwritten, borrows heavily from the far superior Getting Things Done, and has whacked personal confessions like the fact that her family hires her mother-in-law to do her laundry. So it fails in its title objective but is a success in being an odd memoir of a born-again Christian and Republican living in Colorado. (There are [...]

    3. If you've never read anything about productivity this may be good. If you have this is a rehash of other ideas.

    4. There should have been a note about this being a "christian" book. Her main goal appeared to be micro managing from afar all people in her life so that she could spend more time with "god". In all my religious wanderings i haven't come across a non-devil worshiping religion where you belittled and degraded people to such an extent as the author recommends. Her lists reduce people to robots and remove all enjoyment and free thought from activity. The advice would remove all sense of self awarenes [...]

    5. I never could get into this book, much of the advice was either something I already knew (make lists!) or something that wasn't really applicable to my life.Maybe someday I'll find the right organizational book for me :(****Starting this over. In true Lesley form, I got sidetracked from it.This arrived today from . My life is sorely in need of organization and I can't wait to delve into this book!

    6. I can't say that I read every word of this book because I was thrown by her suggestion to do 2 things at once, like sort mail while on the phone, and then to 'be fully present'. This is the age-old problem for women . . we feel guilty if we're not always busy, which usually means doing 2 things at once, then we feel guilty when we're 'scattered' and can't remember every detail of conversations (not to mention not giving our kids/spouses our full attention).

    7. I found a few good ideas on getting organized and not wasting time at the beginning of the book. But then the book quickly devolves into "hire a housekeeper, hire a gardener, hire a personal assistant, hire your mother-in-law to do your laundry, send your kids to daycare". Not at all practical. This woman and I live on different planets.

    8. This was okay. Good ideas, some inspiration. However it didn't have for me that necessary Zing. In other words, how the hell am i going to have my crap that together that I do all the things she recommends to make more time in my life to do the things that she recommends to make more time in my life to do.

    9. The author helped me find more time by making her book a very quick read. Each section is broken into clearly designated "to do" sections. You can quickly find the sections that are most relevant to your situation and start tackling those areas of your work/home/family immediately.

    10. Very good. It was kidda like a text book. Because after every chapter I would try and apply what I just learned. I am going to reread it because I know that there are things that I missed the 1st time though. I feel much more productive now.

    11. Good tips. I admit I didn't read the whole thing word for word. I did glean the necessary information. Now just need to implement.

    12. Really a great help to organize your home and life so you have more time for the things that matter most!

    13. This book had great ideas for organization. I was already a really organized person, but I still got some great new ideas that I can refer back to when I'm spring cleaning my techniques.

    14. This was like a self-guided tour on organizing my life. Clear-cut and simple ideas on addressing potential problem areas and how best to make things better.
