—Mark Sichel
"While the author is not a therapist, she has much to teach the mental health community in this ground-breaking work. Until I read Unclutter Your Life, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of space...physically and emotionally...that I was 'renting' to things that I don't need in my life. What's really amazed me is that I've put many of Gibson's 'clutter buster' suggestions to the test, and they work!"
