For people who are just starting the journey, I am particularly enthused about the author dealing with the "why" portion of de-cluttering. If you look at the table of contents, the first three sections are dedicated to why de-cluttering is so important. The remaining four sections are more the "how to" instructions for the best way to tackle the project regardless of how much or little you need to do.
For people who are already on the journey, it is a motivational/reinforcing book especially the early chapters. It also gives a few different twists than I have seen previously on the implementation steps. Very practical and useful.
I would encourage you to take a look at the table of contents available via the "look inside this book" feature. It will help you better understand the contents as it is very detailed.
As far as my own journey, I have been walking this road for about fifteen years now. I think I have things pretty well under control and then life throws a curve which creates another need for me to de-clutter. Mostly this has been due to the constantly changing health situation of my elderly parents. They have downsized multiple times over the past three years and I have had responsibility for keeping or getting rid of almost everything they owned. At each step, there has been a huge influx of "stuff" that I must make decisions about and then take action
There are two thoughts I have, one if which is a tad different from the author. I have found it helpful to de-clutter the entire house prior to deciding on storage solutions for what remains. If you do her steps perfectly, the storage can be determined as soon as a room is finished but I don't do the steps perfectly. I end up moving things around the house as I realize that where I have stored things isn't necessarily the optimal location. If I hold off purchasing storage solutions until the I am finished, I am more likely to buy the right things.
The second thought is that the process takes me waaaaaaaay longer than I think it will and is very iterative. The end results are wonderful and I get motivated by the improvement I see as I go, but this isn't something that I can do over a few weekends. If you live alone, it might go faster but I have to work with other family members and get their buy in on de-cluttering and that can be a slow, slow process.

Jenny Davis does a great job in this book and doesn't seem to have missed anything in decluttering.

There are processes laid out for you to declutter every room from your bedroom to storage areas to important documents. Things that you would not think of when you are organizing your house are discussed such as digital declutter. Something i had never thought of before. If you intend to tackle all the areas mentioned in the book you will have to take it one step at a time and as the author Jenny Davis explains this is a process that does not end. Like so many other things you need to keep up on decluttering but once you have done it once it will become a habit and something you continually do to have that great feeling of living in an organized home.
Great job by the author. If you are looking to declutter this is a great book to get you going. Well written and worth the price.
