What brought me to this book was simple: my emails, my bookmarks and my computer files were just a mess. My download file was out of control, it became a computer junk drawer. I would look at all the files and quickly close the folder because it was so filled with everything and anything that it was incredibly stressful. Then my email accounts had hundreds and hundreds of emails in them. It all made me feel like it was out of control and completely unmanageable, but then I found this book.
What I liked about this book is it wasn’t ordering me to do everything at once and do it now now now! Ten minutes a day. That’s it. Knowing I only had to do this clean up project for only ten minutes really motivated me to do it. The book gives you a manageable game plan to organize your digital life. I highly recommend this book for people who feel they are not digitally organized.
I was actually looking for more links to "free" tools to deleting stuff and minimizing time to remove duplicate files. For example a tool to find duplicates on multiple devices. I don't think one exists today and the ones that are close to it have a subscription license model that I am not interested in. The ebook didn't have that information in it.
I did notice that the TOC was not working in Kindle Cloud reader for the ebook version I read.
I liked the screenshot of Steve's desktop with the Halloween avatar/background. It was a good example of living a decluttered digital life.
I will definitely recommend this book to my network.

In this particular case, the introductory part on how too much use of digital devices adversely affect our lives is both trite and unnecessary for the people who already decided they need this book (and are reading it), and does not serve as a useful introduction to the actual decluttering advice. The chapter "14 Advantages of a Digital Decluttered Life" is such an obviously desperate filler material that it almost insults reader's intelligence. (People like lists, except when they are trite and redundant.)
In contrast I found this a turgid and rather pointless read. There seemed to be a lot of filler material, and when it came to offering advice, it was either too basic, delete stuff, or too detailed, specific products to use, but consistently it failed to offer any advice that I actually felt inclined to use. I do struggle with the various cloud services that are out there, there is no one stop shop for saving all your digital data, and although the book did discuss some of the issues, it failed to really resolve the issues for me.
I really struggle to see who this book is aimed at, unless it is the lifehacker community still endlessly working on little lifehacks to finesse how they go about their lives.
