I read the comments and decided to look at it for myself anyway. Ultimately, I agree with them. The book is nothing more than a giant IKEA catalog. No tips on decluttering, only a bunch of pictures of modern furniture. Not helpful at all.

Nice picture book for grown ups that does not give you a hint to de-clutter. More for decoration ideas than anything else. Ah, it is a brick of a book, big and heavy.

This brick of a book is more of an architectural look at how to declutter, rather than a how-to guide. Which is great if you are starting from scratch. But if you are facing a house full of stuff, this is not the book for you. Really an upscale IKEA catalogue. (There are even pictures from the IKEA catalogue.)

The publishers of this book put together a bunch of very nice looking pictures of very modern, stylish rooms, but there is not one useful tip on decluttering, organizing or storage. My suspicion is that the publishers thought the book would sell better if they could tag it as personal organization as opposed to home decor. The pictures are lovely, but save yourself from hauling this heavy tomb home. Useless.
