At one time I thought I wanted to launch my own business as a professional organizer. That has since passed. I've found my true passion. I did read the book to gain knowledge about this profession. I'm going to say, this book will help you move forward with becoming a professional organizer, or it will help you see this is not for you. Whatever you need to know about helping be a successful professional organizer is in this book. Whether you are already working as one or desiring to become one, this is a good read for you.

The Kindle edition of this book is full of serious formatting errors, making it nearly impossible to read. Complete waste of money.

As a new Professional Organizer in business for about 4 months, I have found this book to be helpful. It was particularly helpful in providing sample forms to use with clients.

I read the entire book in a day. It does have useful information but from a technology standpoint, it is really outdated. The practical information about the forms, concepts, and getting started are sound.
