This is an amazing little book that almost everyone should read. It completely changed my attitude not only towards cleaning and decluttering, but towards my home and shopping.

The Marie Kondo method means decluttering based on the way how you are now and how you want to live. It avoids the common pitfalls such as the sunken cost fallacy, clinging to shoulds and coulds, as well as the harsh ascetic minimalism.

The book itself is easy to read and very pleasant. The only negative things is that certain categories are glossed over and you get the feeling that the book is written from the point of view of the home of a single Japanese woman. For this reason I really recommend picking up the second part as well: Spark Joy answers most of the questions that the reader has after reading The life-Changing Magic, and it seems to have been written after the author's tour of the West.

All in all: 5 stars, a must-read.
