    I read this book in one afternoon and it gave me the final push to change my life around I now get up every morning at 5 30 and I am productive This book alone won t change your life, but it will give you insight to another way of thinking It may be about cleaning but I think the principles discussed in regard to cleaning here can be used for life in general If you remove

    A lovely idea, but sadly smug overtones and no understanding that the reader might be eg a mother of several children doing the work of 6, or someone working two jobs to feed their kids etc and that leaving the occasional drawer open or clutter around the place is less a moral failing than a consequence of a stressful life I like the idea of cleaning one s house as a form of meditation something I will incorporate but not

    This book is a lovely little read and provides some simple Zen lessons But it isn t about saying goodbye to possessions, being about becoming aware of how important it is to consider minimalising our wants to our needs, then making the most of what we have I doubt many readers will feel the need to retire to a monestery and embrace the standard poverty clause Please forgive my cynicism in saying that an understanding of the Zen ne
