Summary

Peggy and Pam were two desperately disorganized sisters. They started each day with the best of intentions, but they never made it because they were "Sidetracked Home Executives" caught in the disorder of misplaced priorities, half-completed chores, and undirected energies - two smart ladies who'd never used their heads when coping with their homes.
So, they analyzed their lives and set up a rotating card system that scheduled their chores on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. With a combination of the sympathy of a fellow former slob, and the firm resolution of a for-your-own-good mother, they tell listeners how they too can get organized.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Some genuinely helpful advice

I found this book to full of good advice that I have successfully put into practice in my own life. I loved the tone of this book - the authors have been there and know your pain. Unlike other books of this kind where the author was born with a clipboard in one hand and a feather duster in the other, these ladies are just like me (worse actually!). They don't judge and they don't make you feel like a failure.

Hope for us all

These ladies are not heartless perfectionists who bark advice from atop pristine pedestals. They have been there, down in the mud, crumbs and jam. Their advice is sound. In terms of a practical programme, The Flylady is more manageable and there are many references in this audiobook to appenices which, of couse, you cannot see. Definitely worth listening to for encouragement.

No access to resources

While I enjoyed listening to the audiobook, and find the system to be a good idea in theory, it is only half as good as it could be without access to the Appendix, which is referenced several times. An accompanying PDF file would be most appreciated.

There is a PDF of the appendix provided!

Any additional comments?

I have not yet finished the book, but went searching for the PDF before going and buying a hardcopy of the book to get what I needed to implement the system. One review said there was a pdf included among the many many that said there was not. Well there is! You just need to know where to look. It is in the library under title. You will see the title and under that a little PDF link. So, there you have it. The audiobook is not useless, quite the contrary. If you are a very busy person who doesn't make time to sit and read self help books (like me) but who has plenty of time to listen to a book while doing the dishes, exercising, doing laundry, etc this may be for you. I am excited to try this out. It was recommended to me by my mother-in-law who apparently used it with her children. She doesn't often give me the same piece of advice more than once, but she has mentioned this book multiple times, so I'm giving it a shot and am very excited from what I've heard so far. I think this may be just what I am looking for.
