From the #1 New York Times best-selling author and lifestyle/cleaning guru Marie Kondo, this graphic novelization brings Kondo's life-changing tidying method to life with the fun, quirky story of a woman who transforms her home, work, and love life using Kondo's advice and inspiration.

Marie Kondo presents the fictional story of Chiaki, a young woman in Tokyo who struggles with a cluttered apartment, messy love life, and lack of direction. After receiving a complaint from her attractive next-door neighbor about the sad state of her balcony, Chiaki gets Kondo to take her on as a client. Through a series of entertaining and insightful lessons, Kondo helps Chiaki get her home—and life—in order. This insightful, illustrated case study is perfect for people looking for a fun introduction to the KonMari Method of tidying up, as well as tried-and-true fans of Marie Kondo eager for a new way to think about what sparks joy. Featuring illustrations by award-winning manga artist Yuko Uramoto, this book also makes a great read for manga and graphic novel lovers of all ages.

I hadn’t gotten a chance to read this popular book previous to when it was a manga, but when I heard it had been turned into a manga, I was extra interested! I love the whole theory the author addresses, of how you can find more peace and solace in your life through order. I absolutely agree with that concept. The illustrations are exceptional and really add to the book, in my opinion. I’m definitely going to be learning more about the Kondo principle and how to apple it better in my life. I’m excited to share it with my daughters, too, in order to help them learn about how cleanliness can be a comfort in many ways. Excellent book, I can’t wait to read the full version, too.
