Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Winston, founder of the consulting firm Organizing Principle, doesn't promise to add more hours to the day, but she does present practical guidance on doing things faster and more efficiently. Setting priorities and "getting it done" are the focus here. Winston profers advice on handling "paperwork gridlock," filing, paying bills and taxes, even dealing with junk mail. She suggests ways to manage your kitchen, clean your house and tidy up car clutter. Oddly, the book is addressed to women, but men would profit as well from Winston's tips. Fortune Book Club selection; BOMC and QPB alternates; author tour.

From Library Journal

Professional organizer Winston follows up her Getting Organized (Warner, 1994. rev. ed.) and The Organized Executive (Norton, 1994. rev. ed.) with this collection of Heloise-like hints and tactics on organizing our lives. She covers the paper shuffle, using calendars and time management, office and home clutter, cleaning up the home and organizing chores, and even organizing your kids. This is an A-to-Z assortment of suggestions that are nicely designed for easy surfing, but it misses the more difficult, fundamental issue of controlling one's life that is very effectively covered in Stephen Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (LJ 3/15/90) and First Things First: To Live, To Love, To Learn, To Leave a Legacy (LJ 4/1/94). This is a rehash of Winston's previous work, and although it may be of limited use, it is recommended only if you haven't yet acquired her other books.?Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.

Format: Audio Cassette
I was a little disappointed with this audio book. I am really looking to get things whipped into shape and organized, but I didn't find this very helpful. There are a lot of ideas, but they all seemed kind-of obvious and nothing really jumped out at me as a "great new idea". I thought she spent WAY too much time on explaining how to organize files, and not enough time on around the house organization ideas. I'm sure it is a good audio book, but it just wasn't what I personally was looking for.

Format: Hardcover
All Stephanie Winston books have sold well, primarily to a corporate market. Winston's forte is ORGANIZING, which can aid readers in achieving; however, organization per se is not synonymous with simplicity (IRS forms are organized and hopelessly complex!) More-over, she rarely touches on the cerebral aspects of simplicity. The books tends to be dry and matter-of-fact -- perfect for gung-ho career-achiever types.

Format: Paperback
As a professional organizer I find this book both useful and insightful. The author has her information in a very easy to read manor. She also writes on a level of experience working with an organizing client. I would recommend this book to any one interested in organizing their own homes and also for anyone organizing others.
