    This is a must read for anything wanting the best out of life

    I got this book from the libary and found that I MUST have a copy of my own to read whenever I want. It's a book that you can read through or pick up and put down whenever. I plan to read a chapter per day until the information gets stuck in my brain. This book is more than just a "organizing" book....way more.

    Timely and relevant!

    I can't think of a better book to start the new year with!! I'm am thoroughly enjoying every word, reminding me along the journey, that while it's easy to get derailed by our societies entrapments, that all in life that is worth amassing is not at all tangible. That it is only the relationships, knowledge and experiences that hold any true meaning.

    I don't think I'll shelve this book, but rather keep it on my desk for quick reference whenever distracted from "living more."

    A Male Perzpective

    This book is not for a man to necessarily read, at least THIS man posting this review found it to be lacking, and it should be more clear that it'so inclined towards women because it's written by a woman with much emphasis regarding shopping.

    Not that great

    I expected more from this book. After the first couple of chapters, I skimmed it and then immediately put in archive. The only good thing is that it was cheap.
