My Review:

4 of 5 Stars

I knew going into this book that there was a very real possibility that the swearing might be too much for me. I don’t mind cursing in general but it needs to be done right and not used as a crutch to make something funny. I found this book to be just on that borderline between ‘just enough’ and a ‘too much’. While the book didn’t really bring anything new in terms of organization to my attention, it did remind me of things I already knew in new ways.

I loved how she broke personality types between the three chipmunks from Alvin and the Chipmunks. I still have no idea which I identify with as I see myself in all of them but I found it really helpful to know these are common issues. The concept behind her organization methods are fairly simple and mostly involve prioritizing which I know from experience can help a lot. I really enjoyed her injection of humor into what could be a boring or tedious topic. I’m happy to say that I am introducing some of her ideas into my own planning and working on getting better with ‘getting my sh*t together’. I’m also really curious about her previous book, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck.

I’m giving a big thanks to Little, Brown for providing me with a free galley of this book in exchange for my honest review.
