I was looking forward to reading this book after learning about it from some fashion magazine, but I unfortunately I have to agree with the other negative review on here. (I'm surprised there's only 1 so far!) I too am unsure what the other reviewers are raving about...Here is the synopsis of the book:- Throw out or donate a lot of your clothes- Make a list of every clothing item you owe (who has time for this?!)- Go out and buy yourself a whole bunch of new clothes- Build your own shelves to organize your closet (I, for one, cannot build my own shelves)The book re-hashes a lot of old/stale advice such as throwing out clothes you have not worn in a year, not using wire hangers, folding sweaters, not keeping your clothes in plastic from dry cleaners, etc. There are a few useful sections, such as advice on packing for a trip, and instructions on selling old clothes on Ebay (although nowadays it's almost impossible to sell clothes on Ebay unless they're designer duds for a deep discount price), but overall, this book was a waste of my time.read more
