Big thank you to Little, Brown and Company for the ARC!

Marie Kondo again writes a wholly accessible and applicable self-help book! Despite being a college student not yet in the professional scene, I still found the advice and tips helpful, especially within the realm of digital tidying up! I am someone who considers herself a bit like Marie, in that we both enjoy keeping only what (in my case, think) we need. This book helped me see that while yes, I may be able to find all my things rather

Let me begin by saying that I am a proponent of the KonMari Method and I own Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy. Her method has worked incredibly well for me, tying nicely into my desire to life a simpler and more sustainable lifestyle. I was excited to hear about this new publication not only because I was interested on how I could apply her method to work, but also I’ve also always been interested in productivity and the field of organizational psychology (super ...more

Like most books on work and improving your work life, it assumes you are the sole manager of your time and activities in the work place. Not only is that exclusively salaried white collar workers, it excludes whole industries such as healthcare and other clinical careers, as well as jobs with customer facing hours, not just independent office time. That's not so much a criticism of this book, as it is most books in this genre. Still, I will rate highly for those for whom it can apply.

I loved Marie Kondo's first book and was excited to read the follow up, focusing efforts on the office. I found her approach to tidying up at work simple but effective. I liked how things were broken down into physical tidiness, such as papers, but also covered less concrete aspects, like your email inbox. It was a good read for me to start off the new year and I've incorporated some suggestions already.

If you enjoyed Marie Kondo's previous book, you'll like this work-focused approach to tidying up. Her philosophy is the same: create a clutter-free, joy filled work environment and you will be happier. We all know that clutter and a messy desk can easily create a feeling of overwhelm and Marie breaks down how to apply her strategies to your office in order to create a more pleasant and peaceful working experience. Quick read with actionable steps!

Thank you to NetGalley and Little, Brown and Company for an advanced copy of this book.

Marie Kondo's enthusiasm for sparking joy is contagious. Her latest effort focuses on joy in the workplace and her advice is easily transferable to other workspaces around one's home. Her method and theory remains the same: it's easier to feel joy when you find the sweet spot of tidiness that works for you and we all benefit from efforts to surround ourselves with things we love.

There's a lot of practical
