This book is amazing. It is different than many other organizing books because it breaks tasks down into extremely manageable pieces. Even the busiest, most unorganized person can take a moment to apply one or two of the organizing secrets. That is Jamie Novak's philosophy: break large tasks down into bite-sized pieces. Most of the tips do not require that everything in an entire room be pulled off the shelves all at once. For example, Jamie suggests putting tableclothes onto hangers so they can be neatly hung in a closet. That one task will take perhaps 5 minutes, but will make a huge difference. The book is also extremely well organizing. It is set up so you can flip directly to the chapter applicable to a specific problem area, or read it cover to cover. I highly recommend this book!

Super helpful super fast
Jamie's book was an excellent read that was chock full of great ideas and tips of all kinds. I've been on an organizing kick for about a year trying to get everything together and the main reason it was taking so long was I could not find a system that worked for me really well. Jamie offers several systems and multiple ideas on just about every topic related to organizing all kinds of items and information.
Since the book is broken down into sections it's easy to find exactly what you need so it's an excellent reference though I would suggest just reading the entire thing because alot of ideas can cross over easily. There were a couple of topics (like moving) I wish were covered more in-depth but she does refer you to a host of good references for all kinds of topics. There were a few typos that needed fixing that made a couple tips in the book confusing until you figured it out. It also may have been nice to see a couple illustrations or before and after shots just for inspiration.
I have lent the book to three people and they have loved it as well. I would recommend to anyone - the ones just starting and the ones having trouble with those last couple boxes or ones with that particular trouble spot in the house.
