The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

by Marie Kondō

Overview

Some books strike exactly the right nerve at exactly the right time. Marie Kondo's did just that. Published in late 2014, The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up has already sold 6 million (!) copies worldwide. Using a single question as the center of her tidying process ("Does this spark joy?"), she's swept the world off its feet and the clutter out of our homes.

Tidying up isn't just about being a neat freak - it's much more than that. It's a spiritual experience, and you're not just cleaning your house. Your mind and body detox right with it.
