{Free Book} ë Art of Discarding á eBook or E-pub free

The book manages to be both dated and very relevant If you re tired of all the sorting gurus, this may be the right book for you It tells you exactly where you and everyone else goes wrong in the practice of tidying up and throwing away So yes, please read the book, take out whatever you need, and then throw it out The 2000s had their floppy disks and that s the one thing I don t have any trouble with. I purchased this book because of a reference made by Marie Kondo in her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up She stated her inspiration started with The Art of Discarding Well, this book did not work well for me There is quite a bit of repetition of the same subject matter and the organization of the book fell flat in my opinion There are some good points made, but I am enjoying Marie Kondo s book much. Advertised as The book that inspired Marie Kondo s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up Which says a lot.Kondo s book was fine I did not love it and I don t think it s sooooo special, but it was fine.But this one is a bit boring to read, and although it tries to be practical it was not actually helpful for me The author keeps repeating discard it, discard it ALL, discard no matter what and at certain point it gets annoying I specially disliked her insistence on discarding things such a Advertised as The book that inspired Marie Kondo s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up Which says a

paperwork without worrying a bit a topic which would require caution imho.As a general rule I agree with the main idea but the exposition was poor.Even so I found two paragraphs which made me wonder if her pupil Marie Kondo keeps loving this book so much now that she is world famous Experts in storage and organization are generally people who enjoy such things You character is different to theirs So however much you try to follow their methods, you re bound to fail at some stage But I think it is best not to suppose we can easily introduce a different lifestyle from a foreign country And I certainly agree with Nagisa Tatsumi on this I have read a lot of books on getting rid of clutter and becomingof a minimalist I love the topic See my clutter book category in Goodreads So when I saw that this book is what inspired Marie Kondo s books, I decided to read it It is not my favorite but I still liked it There was some unnecessary repetition and a few typos Here is a great line If you have it use it If you don t use it, don t have it Reading the book created another wave of me getting rid of stuff I don t use I have read a lot of books on getting rid of clutter and becomingof a

to not take care of things right then and there Get rid of your junk and enjoy a less cluttered life, otherwise you ll just die in a house full of junk that someone else will have to throw away Art of

inspired Marie Kondo to write The Life Changing Magic of Tidying and in it, Nagisa argues that we need to learn to let go, and she tackles the psychological issues that people have with getting rid of things In particular, a reluctance to discard things just in case , the desire to hoard things, and guilt about getting rid of things that were given as gifts I found The Art of Discarding to be a quick, simple remedy for anyone who is struggling to declutter their lives The advice is straight forward, well explained, and accessible for all readers I did feel like some of the information was a bit outdated, and perhaps in this reissue, Nagisu could ve includedup to date information For example, she talks about people who do bookkeeping and keep physical copies of all their records, but she doesn t mention that a lot of people might keep these electronically now and that perhaps that s what all people should do scan the information and save it to their computer, or email it to themselves to keep as a record There is a lot of mention about books and magazines and how adults feel like those are the two things that they feel can t throw away, but probably they should I found this enlightening, given I have way too many books and too many bookshelves and I m constantly trying to donate excess books I have a rule If I ve read the book and I know that I m never going to read it again, and I ve reviewed it, I donate it There s no use keeping a book that you re not going to read again or admire ever again The Art of Discarding really has two sections in the first half of the book, Nagisu goes through ten attitudes that people can adopt to help them tidy up their things And then she goes through ten strategies fro discarding These two sections help break up the book and the reader can flick through it really quickly.This book is very focused on Japanese culture with Japanese customs Nagisa talks about post war attitudes in Japan and how that has affected people s inability to declutter their homes, but this is really only relatable for Japanese readers For example, Nagisa talks about her mother and how she has post war thinking As children in the post war years her generation knew real want They were marrying at a time when the country had begun to produce a succession of new home electrical and other products Things are precious to them They can t throw away something useable without a sense of guilt Whilst I found this interesting, I couldn t relate because I m not from Japan and I m also not from the generation that was alive during the Second World War.Even in the year 2000, Nagisa was ahead of her time She probably didn t predict a tidying up trend, but she s certainly considered one of the first authors to write a book about this topic and she was an overnight sensation She definitely delivers some home truths in this book Things that people might not want to admit are true but really are Disposal of most things in the house is often down to women clothes, shoes, socks, general household goods, etc Women usually aremotivated to declutter than males are, and it s very clear in this book with every household example that Nagisa gives.I recommend this book to people who are looking for other ways to declutter I also find this book good for people who are quite organised, but just need that bit of extra help For example, you re quite tidy and you don t have much stuff, but you do have quite a lot of documents on your work desk and you re not sure whether they should be thrown out or filed away in folders and boxes.Thank you to Hachette Publishers for sending me a review copy of this title This is a great book to get your mind set for a big or even small organizing project I really enjoyed the way the

I highly recommend it {Free Book} ð Art of Discarding µ The original Japanese edition of The Art of Discarding, titled Suteru Gijutsu, was published inand became an overnight sensation selling a million copies in six months and inspiring a young Marie Kondo The book has since become a multimillion copy international bestseller, but it has never been translated into English, until now In this guide to living a calmer, ordered life, renowned author Nagisa Tatsumi teaches us how letting go of unwanted things will transform our day to day happiness The book offers practical advice and techniques to help readers learn to let go of stuff that is holding them back, as well as tips for acquiring less in the first placeIt s time to live with less I didn t agree with all of the authors thoughts particularly when she would indicate that everything is available online However, the book was generally informative and gave some ideas of how to get started when addressing the clutter that surrounds The Art of Discarding is from a different Japanese culture perspective, and that difference was interesting but required some level of interaction to reimagine the advice applied to a life and culture that I foundfamiliar.
