While I don't personally feel like I need to be rescued from an obsession with keeping my house looking like a designer showroom, I got a good laugh out of this book condemning overkill decorating tendencies. He describes a glass pasta storage container as "someone's artistic fart in Mexican glass."

Blah, blah, blah. Not much eye candy. Lots of theory about not keeping up with the Joneses. If you already aren't - this book is not for you.
