This book was easy to read in one sitting if you're willing to put the time into it, and I think that readability plays into Marie Kondo's style of tidying. Anybody can do it, you just have to do it from beginning to end. Kondo includes her recommended way of doing things, but she also emphasizes the importance of each individual person and that each person needs to find their way of tidying in order to do it right and to do it for life. Some concepts in this book really helped me understand how I wasn't using the space in my own home efficiently, and how to let some items go. I don't know if you can use this book as a reference in the future, as there are no diagrams or illustrations to show you how to do anything, but you have to spend the time to read the words and turn them into actions. With that, I want to thank this book for the knowledge and confidence it has passed on to me, as I know it will do for others.
