Why Cleaning has Meaning: Bringing Wellbeing Into Your Home by Linda Thomas
Rating: 2 Stars
Description: A detailed and deeper look into cleaning. The author explores cultural, religious and psychological reasons for cleaning other than just getting rid of dust.
My Impression: I'm reasonably neat but I don't really enjoy cleaning. My husband is a major neat freak and so I was hoping this book would inspire me to find a little more enjoyment or purpose in cleaning for his sake. While I thought a lot of the information was interesting - especially the cleaning rituals and reasons in other cultures - the book just felt cumbersome. While I liked the basic message about cleaning being important that feels like the only message. This leads to a lot of repetition and the feeling kind of like reading in circles. I admire the author for her research and for the tenacity in getting her business off the ground but I didn't really enjoy the book. It felt a little like reading someone's thesis paper.
Would I Read More of this Series/Author?: I'd read an article by her but probably not a full length book.
Would I Recommend this Book?: No
