A Book in Review: It's All Too Much

It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff By: Peter Walsh
Non-fiction: home improvement 228 Pages
Book Count: 20

This book is by one of the people on the show "Clean Sweep". It has lots of useful ideas on how to organize ones house and how to decide what things you should keep and things that you really don't need. I do have a few issues with it thought. Some are small issues like his belief that you need to seat at a dinning room table to talk with your family at dinner. The main one is his belief that one NEEDS an organized space to be creative. That's like saying you can't write or paint a masterpiece unless you're sober. Sure, the millions of artist and writer I could name as working while drunk/high/both weren't falling down drunk at the time, but my point is more that one often has a harder creating in a sterile enverment then in a mess. Sure, given what he does for a living he is most likely one of those people who can't work unlike everything is just so, but that's not everyones ways.
