    Expanding on her enduring blockbuster, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (2014), Kondo moves her focus from belongings to kurashi or lifestyle. Still using her patented technique (examining each article and asking "does it spark joy?"), the author urges readers to visualize their ideal home (after tidying up, of course) and lifestyle choices. As she moves through each room, Kondo offers tips for making areas more playful and joyful. The Konmari method can also be used for social obligations and relationships, says the author. The key is to sift through these options and choose the ones that spark joy. Stories from her many clients are woven into the narrative, and the text is set tastefully amid nicely shot photographs of cleared spaces, striking accessories, and the serene author herself. Kondo includes worksheets in the appendix to guide readers in planning their ideal mornings, workdays, and evenings. Kondo's life has changed since the success of her first book, and she admits to challenges as a wife and mother. But she retains her overall peacefulness and her love of order, which readers find so very inspiring.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Kondo has a vast following, and her newest book is sure to attract legions of eager readers.
