Genre: Non-Fiction/Self Help
“Film and television views of the future are always clean, sleek and uncluttered. I used to think it was the technology. That at some point in the future, we’d have the technology to meet our daily needs without the need to climb over all of our daily stuff.
Then at one point, quite recently, I realized that we’re already there…”
Charity Grant is the pen name of an author who has written multiple non-fiction books designed to make the reader’s life better in some way.
Many (most?) of us have trouble with clutter. Some (like the people on that Hoarders TV show) more trouble than others. There are numerous techniques for preventing or eliminating that clutter. My Mom even self-published a book 25 years ago to sell at seminars she conducted that had a chapter on getting rid of clutter.
My success at implementing my Mom’s decluttering ideas has been mixed, at best. I think I’ll have better luck with Charity Grant’s suggestions. Some of them I’ve already implemented. (Those hundreds of books I get each year are no longer paper which has stopped bookcases from taking over my entire house.) Other suggestions I can see their value and, most important, can actually picture myself doing. To me, that’s the sign of a self-help book that’s worthwhile.
No significant issues.
