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.
