Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Brooks Palmer is an expert at helping people discover the freedom that comes from de-cluttering their lives. In the process, he helps them discover who they are and the life they should really be living. Read this book...it may just change your life!”
Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Off Balance and The Rhythm of Life

“Brooks Palmer wisely reveals that clutter is a state of consciousness, one that we can transform into a profound awareness of what lies beneath the fortress built of stuff, be it physical, psychological, or even spiritual. Fortunate are those who apply his compassionate methods for growing in self-love, self-respect, and self-trust.”
Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation

“Filled with interesting stories and useful guidance about replacing physical and emotional baggage with freedom and joyful relationships.”
Harville Hendrix, PhD, author of Getting the Love You Want

“Brooks Palmer provides inspiring examples, humor, and encouragement to help readers let go of clutter, along with small steps that can help people create a new and joyful life. If you’re looking for ways to let go of clutter, then this book is for you.”
Tammy Strobel, author of You Can Buy Happiness (and It’s Cheap) and RowdyKittens.com

“Clutter is so much more than the physical objects we cling to. Fortunately, Brooks Palmer is so much more than a clutter buster. The defenses, anger, and general dopiness we use to protect our tender selves are no match for his gentleness, humor, and insight....I’m beginning to think that Brooks might be able to clutter bust us all the way to world peace.”
Colleen Wainwright, writer, speaker, and creator of Communicatrix.com

Library Journal
According to professional organizer Palmer (Clutter Busting: Letting Go of What's Holding You Back) the root problem of clutter-prone individuals is the tendency to hold on to things that are no longer useful. These things can be objects, resentments, habits, anger, and so on, and Palmer focuses on clearing out garbage and moving toward healthy relationships with people and things. Some of his suggestions for mental decluttering involve overcoming the urge to change others and letting go of guilt and blame when discarding items. VERDICT Palmer will meet the needs of desperate readers dealing with the aftermath of relationships, whether with deceased parents or ex-lovers, and help pave a path toward a clearer future.
