    Within 48 hours of reading this book I had at least 15 bags of junk/trash set out for the garbage man. I highly recommend this book. Very simple and straight to the point.

    Great book. I loved Mari Kondo's The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and was very excited to read one of the books that inspired her. I found that The Art of Discarding was a little less extreme than The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, but loved it nonetheless. Great read, especially if you feel the Spring cleaning bug coming on.

    I've read both of Marie Kondo's books and Sasaki Fumio's 'Goodbye, Things' and out of the three, I enjoyed Nagisa Tatsumi's the best. Those who read it today might find it a bit outdated because it was originally written in the 2000s. If you've read any of the other "minimalist" books, you probably don't need to read another, but if you're deciding between which of the three Japanese minimalist authors to read, I can suggest why you should pick this once since all of them are intended towards different readers. They all more-or-less give similar tips.

    This is the book that inspired Marie Kondo to write "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up." I really needed this book. I have too much stuff. I wasn't allowing myself to discard things I don't use or need. My dad was a child of the Great Depression. We were taught that we don't waste things. That's a hard habit to break.

    Excellent book. Doesn't try to be more than it is. Offers a variety of approaches to discarding. And inspires you to get started and keep at it.

    This is the book that influenced Marie Kondo but was only recently (2017) translated. It offers much of the same advice as Kondo but the writing is a little more straight forward, less conversational. Its a quick, enjoyable read. The author is a woman so, as a female reader, I can relate to her practicality and organization. In Part 3 titled "how to feel better about getting rid of things," she considers recycling and environmental issues that Kondo doesn't discuss. This is a great companion piece to Kondo's charming and inspiring books. Both authors explain some Japanese concepts (e.g. mottainai, mono no aware) that can give western readers a new perspective on consuming and discarding.

    Thus book helped give many discussions that can use with my husband to help make minimizing a less arginous and painful task. This will help me to get him onboard. I also like hearing everything doesn't have to be recycled.
