A PERFECT MESS The Hidden Benefits of Disorder

by | Read by Scott Brick

Business & Finance • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

This book, a gleeful David tossing stones in the face of the Goliath-like "organizing industry," raises provocative questions about our love affair with neatness and our shame over messiness. The authors encourage listeners to consider how messy systems can spawn creative solutions and to reconsider the hidden costs of overzealous neatness in both personal and business settings. Scott Brick, who has one of those compelling documentary-type voices, presents a multitude of anecdotes that are entertaining? and potentially liberating to anyone undergoing a failed seasonal cleaning. Despite Brick's professional and energetic presentation, at points in this freewheeling and lengthy book listeners may wish for . . .well . . . a bit more organization to the argument.
