— The San Francisco Chronicle


“(Franklin) approaches this serious matter of chaos and clutter with the humor needed to tackle an office space, whether at work or at home. . . Part of Franklin’s appeal as a writer is her way of directing questions and information to the reader. (Franklin) sprinkles her advice with lots of amusing asides, which turn what could otherwise be a rather dull subject into an entertaining read.”

— The Montclarion


How to Get Organized Without Resorting to Arson is every bit as much fun to read as its title suggests, and it makes sense. . . .Throughout, Franklin emphasizes that the system that works is the one that works for the individual.

— The Latrobe Bulletin


“(Franklin’s) descriptions of work personalities, organizing styles, and access types are clever, comedic, and useful . . . it does away with the axiom that every other how to get organized plan stresses and allows you to handle a piece of paper more than once without feeling guilty or inefficient.  If you follow the book chapter by chapter you will definitely be better organized like it or not.  If used in an office setting everyone should have a copy of the book.”
