I am always looking for books that can help me improve my situation or outlook in any way. This is absolutely one of those books. If you want a book that will make you laugh and smile, but also make you really think, motivate you to improve yourself, and tug at your heart strings all at the same time, read this book and you will agree. But more than that... it demonstrates what hard work, creativity, and a positive attitude can accomplish. Don is a rare individual who has been an inspiration to everyone he comes in contact with, and who hasn't let his amazing success story spoil him or cause him to lose contact with what is really important in life. On the contrary... it has all made him a better person. I commend him for sharing his story in such a delightful way.
What do we all really want in life? Success and happiness in personal endeavors, in business and finances, and in relationships. His example - and the wit and wisdom he shares as he tells his story - will help you see your own path to that success in a new and wonderful way. I recommend this book highly.

Decided to buy this book after looking at for so long.

Wasn't disappointed at all. Amazing read and reminds me of the "get -to-it" character that won the wet.

Would highly recommend this book for everyone to have in their library. It is a HUGE book and worth the price and then some !!!!!!!

How I Swept My Way to the Top: The Don Aslett Story

It is pointless, as well as unanswerable, to speculate how many divorces and suicides Don Aslett has helped to prevent. In my case, I am autistic and I did not know what "declutter" meant and couldn't quite figure out. My husband would rejoice when he saw me pull out a Don Aslett book and start reading it, because he knew it would shortly be followed by a cleaning spree. But it was always relocating things, not real decluttering, until one morning I woke at six-fifteen knowing exactly how to declutter. For the next six months, he drove to DI (Utah's version of Goodwill) several times a week, and on several memorable days he went there twice in one day. The trash cans were overloaded every Friday. Don had finally gotten through to me.

During these years I had written him several times, and he always replied encouragingly. A few times he quoted me in one of his books; this helped a lot.

Reading his autobiography was a real eye-opener. I knew he had grown up in relative poverty, but I had the impression that when he started Varsity Cleaning things went fairly smoothly and it was all uphill from there. I was amazed to read of his numerous failures and near-failures, of the incredible number of things that went wrong when there was nobody but Don, and later Don and a couple of good friends, to go out and pick up the pieces.

This is the autobiography of a man with true honor and grit, who loves his family and is determined to give back to society more than society has given to him.

I read over 100 books a year, and I can honestly say that "How I Swept My Way To The Top: The Don Aslett Story" by Don Aslett is one of the most enjoyable, educational, and motivational books I've read in a very, very long time. The book is an autobiography of how Aslett took a common job to uncommon success, and it's a book that I purposefully read slowly, a little each day, so I could absorb the lessons he provides in the 555 page text. Can you savor a book? If you can, that is exactly what I did while reading Aslett's remarkable life story.

Before I tell a bit about the book, I want to mention the book's format and layout. It's a large book, with a lot of information densely packed into those 555 pages, but it is also an attractive book with black and white photographs throughout that greatly add to the text. I especially liked the chapter headings and the use of watermark photos as the beginnings of chapters. The presentation of the material added to the ease and enjoyment of reading the book. I'll also comment on the organization of this autobiography. Yes, it begins with Aslett's early years, and concludes with him in his 70s, both looking back at his life, and looking forward to future accomplishments, but between was not just a straight from there to here linear chronology of his life. The chapters focus on portions of this life, which may span years, or maybe a shorter period such as the chapter on an eighteen month senior mission Aslett and his wife, Barbara, went on when they were in their 60s. The layout and organization were helped tremendously by Aslett's partner and editor, Carol Cartaino, and Tobi Alexander, his Operations Manager and so much more.
