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.
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 !!!!!!!
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
