The book is full of clutter, such as cute little anecdotes about Nancy and her husband Mike, and tidbits about the British Royal family, having nothing to do with organizing. Does the reader need an entire paragraph about how many pillows Nancy and Mike like on their bed?
I got a few useful things out of the book: the chapter on how to prevent junk mail, a good list of questions to ask about each piece of paper, and the reasonable time periods for keeping various types of business records (bank statements, cancelled checks, and such). But I don’t think this book is worth anywhere near ....
The chatty, conversational style is engaging, but it quickly wears thin as the same advice ("change your environment") is repeated again and again with few concrete suggestions for change. The book itself is disorganized, with Miller jumping from advice for the home to advice for the office and back again, with little or no warning. There are entire chapters on junk mail and holiday decorations, and then one chapter to deal with the rest of the house. The most helpful information - a clear list of how long to keep the important documents that tend to get shoved into boxes and file cabinets and never seen again - is buried in an appendix. The cartoon illustrations are cute, but they add little to the book.
In addition, the book is poorly edited. A second, revised edition should not be riddled with typographical errors or include entire duplicate pages inserted in the wrong chapter, nor should it make the reader wait fifty pages for the explanation of a full-page example.
There are many organizational books on the market - this one offers nothing new.
