Comments and mentions from HN threads:

Ask HN: Books you read in 2015?


palimpsests: Kondo's book is definitely amazing - a very important book, like you say. The system behind it is extremely simple and quite powerful.

jdimov10: Marie Kondo's book on tidying up is also of delightfully broader utility than the title implies. I just recently finished it - it is a surprisingly insightful book and a real pleasure to read. Highly recommended!

dcolgan: Actually maybe the most important book I've read in a while, helped me throw away a lot of stuff I didn't need

hkmurakami: A philosophy book. Worth a look even if you don't ascribe to its teachings.

chadcmulligan: It's about tidying up, but also about making your living space harmonious without clutter. It's not one of those get a box and put your pencils in it and then label it.

nazgulnarsil: I would strongly recommend people read both GTD and The life changing magic of tidying up by Marie kondo and, and this is the important bit, draw parallels between them...
