<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling guide to decluttering your home and the inspiration for the hit Netflix show <i>Tidying Up with Marie Kondo</i>.</b><br /><br /> Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?<br /><br /> Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). <br /><br /> With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

<p><strong>The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life.</strong></p><br /><p>Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo—he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In <em>Goodbye, Things</em> Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.</p>

<b>“A gentle, knowledgeable guide to a fate we all share” (<i>The Washington Post</i>): the first and only all-encompassing action plan for the end of life. </b><br /><br />“There is nothing wrong with you for dying,” hospice physician B.J. Miller and journalist and caregiver Shoshana Berger write in <i>A Beginner’s Guide to the End</i>. “Our ultimate purpose here isn’t so much to help you die as it is to free up as much life as possible until you do.”<br /> <br />Theirs is a clear-eyed and big-hearted action plan for approaching the end of life, written to help readers feel more in control of an experience that so often seems anything but controllable. Their book offers everything from step-by-step instructions for how to do your paperwork and navigate the healthcare system to answers to questions you might be afraid to ask your doctor, like whether or not sex is still okay when you’re sick. Get advice for how to break the news to your employer, whether to share old secrets with your family, how to face friends who might not be as empathetic as you’d hoped, and how to talk to your children about your will. (Don’t worry: if anyone gets snippy, it’ll likely be their spouses, not them.) There are also lessons for survivors, like how to shut down a loved one’s social media accounts, clean out the house, and write a great eulogy.<br /> <br />An honest, surprising, and detail-oriented guide to the most universal of all experiences, <i>A Beginner’s Guide to the End</i> is “a book that every family should have, the equivalent of Dr. Spock but for this other phase of life” (<i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Dr. Abraham Verghese).
