Do you ever stop yourself, as you crouch down to pick up yet another sock/toy/crayon off the floor and think "I haven't made this mess, why am I cleaning it up?". Or have you ever faced that huge pile of laundry/dishes in the sink and thought, "I'm too tired and unmotivated to do anything about this"? Do you ever think, "this is a waste of my brain and talents"? If you answered yes to any of these, you would do well to read this book.
There are things in this book that I already embrace (picking battles, for one) but there was still plenty of inspiration, simple suggestions and other good, no-nonsense advice that make this book worth reading and re-reading. This isn't a housework manual. You won't find many cleaning tips but you will find what you need to cope with the repetition, the injustice, the futility and all the other mental and physical challenges of housework.
My laundry, by the way: washed and folded. My house: neat and tidy. The book: read cover to cover. Me? Relaxed, refreshed and ready for more housework. How did I do it? The secret's in the book.
I would highly recommend it. A great book for the burned out housekeeper.
