Book Description

Does it seem like everything is moving so fast these days you can barely keep up? Do you sometimes feel that your life is spinning out of control? Most of us are so overwhelmed by the stuff in our daily lives -- work, bills, family commitments, demands from our kids' schools -- that we rush from person to person and place to place. For many of us, life feels completely out of balance because we give one area of our lives too much attention and the other areas nowhere near enough. This crazy imbalance and the resulting stress and unhappiness you feel are the clutter that Peter Walsh wants to help you tackle in Enough Already!: Clearing Mental Clutter to Become the Best You.

Peter examines the six key areas of your life -- Family, Relationships, Work, Health, Money, and Spirituality -- and shows how these unique parts of your life are so interrelated that if just one is cluttered, that clutter will creep into the other areas and throw your life off balance. He then offers a step-by-step plan that helps you acknowledge and address the emotional and mental clutter that holds you back from living the richly fulfilling life you deserve.

Peter knows that freeing up a cluttered life (and mind) can sometimes take even greater work and commitment than clearing out a cluttered home, but he is determined to help you change. With his wry humor, his constant encouragement, and the specific tips and practical advice he offers, Peter helps you prioritize what matters in your life. Then his straightforward approach shows you how to let go of the stress and clutter and regain your balance, focus, energy, and purpose. By following his simple plan you will begin to view your life and how you spend your time and energy in a completely new way. You will finally be able to live a stress-free life of balance and fulfillment -- the life that's been buried under all your emotional clutter for years and the one you've always imagined.

The relationship section urges readers to become the person you want to come home to and to conduct a personal inventory. Complete with useful clutter-assessment quizzes, this book provides a compelling and comprehensive remedy to the chaos. (Mar.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ready to clear the clutter February 25, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I had not read Peter Walsh's previous books, and honestly didn't realize that he was the host of TLC's "Clean Sweep" show. I've seen the show a few times before, and while my house and life are nowhere like the ones on the show, there is plenty of clutter I'd like to clear away (in both).

The book is a very easy read. I finished a cursory read in under an hour. That being said, I went back to fill out the numerous quizzes and questionnaires when I had more time to think about them. I considered them very valuable (instead of just a way to fill pages). For instance, in the Work section, he has quizzes like "Is your work life cluttered?" and activities like "Define your vision for your career" and "Quick Desk Purge." Unfortunately, as a consequence of all the clutter in our lives, we never quite get around to asking ourselves these questions or giving ourselves permission to take control...having it in front of me helped.

Because the author's background is actually in educational psychology (instead of just show business), he seems to understand how to make the information accessible to the reader. I also really appreciated that he didn't beat us over the head with the fact that he has a TV show (some books out there by TV personalities are so weak and really just marketing ploys). He does use letters he has received from listeners/fans/viewers to compliment the points he is making.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels overwhelmed with life at times. The books covers all possible parts of "life" like relationships, work, and health, so if you've got one or more area that is cluttered, it could really help. Based upon this book, I will also be seeking out his previous books he has written, to see how they may be useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this book! April 12, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book was mainly about mental clutter. It's the first book by Peter Walsh that I've read and it got me clearing out some of the physical clutter that I've been avoiding for at least 10 years. Seven years ago when I moved to the house I live in now, I just moved the clutter from the old house to the new one. Part of the reason was that we sold the old house sooner than we expected and I didn't have a lot of time to declutter, but there was also the mind clutter thing that just froze me whenever I thought about it. I work for a company on the other side of the country and have a home office, so not only do I have personal clutter, but I have work clutter as well.

I love reading books and articles on organization and it's big fun to order them on Amazon and then have an impressive pile of books to read. It puts off the process of actually doing anything because after you've received all the books, you have to decide which one to read first. Then, it takes time to actually read the book. Then you have to process in your mind what you've read and decide whether the author is another hack or if the advice is really doable. Or worth your while. (Usually it isn't and by then you've found something infinitely more fun to do). The next thing is to get motivated enough to actually go into the room and start to physically move, like opening a file folder full of outdated junk and deciding to make a pile of it to be shredded. Then, of course, the shredder can't handle two hours worth of constant shredding and burns out and you have to buy a new shredder. But you have to do a lot of research to know what shredder to buy, one that's going to last and can handle three hours or more of shredding once every 10 years and maybe 2-1/2 minutes worth every so often in between.

Imagine you're browsing the bookstore in the terminal before boarding a flight of several hours duration. You spot Peter Walsh's "Enough Already", with its promise of "clearing mental clutter to become the best you". Sure, why not, you reason.

Your flight is sitting on the tarmac, waiting for takeoff and you get to page 7 where you are informed that you should have purchased, read and implemented the author's other book BEFORE reading this one. "But I've written a whole other book about [cleaning your home], so instead of rehashing it here, let's just say that before this book can help you, you must already have a (relatively) clutter-free and organized home".

Is there any hint of this on the covers or flaps? Of course not.

Do I have to tell you that Walsh then refers to his earlier book throughout this one?

Walsh claims that he will "help" you in six key areas of your life: family, relationships, work, health, money and spirituality. Uh huh.

Walsh opens his first chapter, "Relationships", with the charming headline "You can't make love in a pigsty". Wanna bet? Anyway, that turns out not to be a reference to his book on organizing your household, but rather to your mind as a pigsty. To illustrate his point, Walsh describes a woman who sounds like a character sketch from a made-for-television drama. Utterly unbelievable. High power fashion executive, yada, yada.

He offers a "quiz" to determine if your relationship is cluttered. Ten simplistic questions is all it takes. But it doesn't matter what you answer because Walsh has already determined that your relationship is troubled. "Some relationships do and should end.
