Among my first thoughts: I wonder what would happen if we could persuade everyone in the house to follow one simple guideline: If you encounter something that is dirty or out of place, clean it up or put it away. Every time.... We could eliminate chores altogether that way (well, except perhaps for laundering sheets).
This is one of those books that I'm going to want to read a second (or maybe even a third) time. All sorts of interesting stuff in here... it's almost too dense to absorb all at once (or perhaps that's just because I've got the head cold from....). Even though it's dense, it's all accessible -- it's complex information but addressed in standard English -- any jargon is fully explained before it's used.
