With impressive insights and coherence, the author says that personal disorganization is rooted in emotional and interpersonal dynamics, and that these dynamics can be reworked. She gives powerful examples of disorganization syndromes, saying that “messies,” as she calls them, tend to have three basic problems—hoarding, cluttering, and wasting time. With suggestions and remedies for the syndromes she describes, she sounds authoritative while still conveying respect for the hard choices people have to make when confronting their messiness. The straightforward writing is made even more digestible by Melinda Schmidt’s clarity, steady optimism, and flawless understanding of every idea presented. The innocence in her voice doesn’t diminish the power of the author’s ideas. A casual but informative interview with the author ends the program.
