This audio production blends Emily Woo Zeller’s sweet voice with the counterculture vibe you’d expect from an audio that wants to overturn everything you know about home management. The innocent, cheery aspect of her voice seems out of place with the author’s salty language, but Zeller sounds so earnest and relaxed delivering this book that her likability ultimately boosts the audio’s approachability. The author says we should resist the rigid imperatives many of us learn to make our homes museum-neat and clean. She confronts such perfectionism by debunking cultural gender-role prescriptions and by continually reminding listeners to live in their own skins, live in their own moments. Reclaim your autonomy, she says, and adapt household management ideals to yourself, rather than letting them oppress you with unrealistic demands.
