This book isn't bad but it's mostly common sense and didn't tell me anything particularly new. That said it gave me a little boost to get some more tidying done. This is kind of like Marie Kondo lite. Her method is much more involved and focuses more on breaking the psychological aspects of why we clutter. The 10 Minute Declutter seems more concerned with the physical aspects of organising and keeping a tidy space. I think there is a little too much focus on buying more stuff to keep your stuff in order. The danger here is that you just become even better at hoarding.
The thing I will take away from this book is that you can have an impact by chipping away at tasks in 10 minute increments. While Marie Kondo would like you to set aside large blocks of time to really focus on your tidying, this book's approach is probably better for the busier person. I'm just not convinced that it really deals with the underlying issues very effectively and feels a bit more like a typical shallow self-help book with lists of tips and tricks that are similar to the things you find in magazines. That said it may be helpful to many.

you don't have to have different techniques for different rooms so it gets repetitive. keep it short and it will be more interesting
