    Bought it as a Joke Pleasantly surprised!

    Bought it as a joke (tongue in cheek) for my son the college student. He's compulsively disorganized and suffers because of it. I thought the title would reach his sensibilities. Read it first (naturally, otherwise he'd really be annoying) and found a lot of truths. the questionnaire is a bit bizarre, but a really great concept and provided lots of food for thought!

    Ms. Nakone is fascinated by the science of brain function and applies its research to the question "Why can't I get organized?"  The simple answer: no two brains are alike, although there are some things we all share.  Each of us has an organizing "style," different capabilities and preferences for how we organize, which lets us use our strengths.  Those styles are about our whole selves: our physical, emotional and mental abilities.  When a person is unable to find or use a comfortable style, that person may not be successful at organizing.

    Ms. Nakone writes about four common organizing styles: "Maintaining," "Harmonizing," "Innovating," and Prioritizing."   These four styles complement, sometimes annoy, and, sadly, sometimes criticize each other.  Ms. Nakone helps you identify which style might be yours, and provides some suggestions for organizing tools to fit your style.  She also gives ideas to help us understand each other's styles and cooperate.  That's a wonderful gift.
