    Meh Didn t learn much Gave it an extra star for the author s amusing writing style It eventually became annoying though In all, there are better books about housecleaning To be fair, I didn t read her first book but if it s like this one I m not sure why it became a national best seller I DID however, picked up two things from this book line your microwave and refrigerator with paper towels etc to catch spills So yes, I guess it was useful
