    I'd read Barbara Hemphill's earlier book and was glad to see she's expanded it into two books now with the focus on work and home. Being a chronic paper hoarder means rereading this book occasionally before the paper overwhelms me.She really understands what needs organizing and streamlined, from messages to catalogs, recipes, photos, bills, tax records and the endless stream of paper that flows through our lives. Setting up the systems to handle our troublesome paper clutter brings relief. Some of it you know already, and just need a reminder, but other tips give new ways to handle the growing piles of paper.Very practical.

    Months ago I saw the author on a morning talk show. I already own so many books on organization and clutter reduction, I thought what good would another book on the subject do me? Recently, after spending hours going through piles of paper that had been on the dining room table for weeks, and ending up with half of the papers in smaller piles, I ordered this book. I also ordered "Taming the Paper Tiger at Work" for my husband who is also "organizationally challenged". These books are quick reads, motivating, and the method the author lays out for managing all the paper in our lives is practical and easy. My husband took his book to work and spent the next two days revamping his files and was excited about it. My dining room table has been paper free for two weeks, and I know where to find info if I need, and what "papers" need to filled out, or phone calls made. Not only is my house tidier with less papers laying around, I feel less anxious that I am "forgetting" something.

    I read this and another of Barbara Hemphill's books several years ago, and found her advice useful. However, sometimes life changes and you have to revamp your systems. Recently I've been looking for organizing books available for Kindle, and was happy to come across a new version of this book. And I mean come across literally--Barbara Hemphill is one of the authors, but as of this date the book doesn't show up in the Kindle store under her name. And there's nothing here referring to the Kindle version either. I really only stumbled upon it by accident. Taming the Paper Tiger in the Digital Age @ Home It doesn't seem to be available in printed form. It's written with a co-author, Jennifer Wig, but rest assured it's still as good as Hemphill's books have always been, and recognizes how much life has changed with the advent of smartphones, gps, and so forth. I'll be writing a more detailed review for the Kindle version when I get the time...

    Really good tips. If only I could make myself follow through on the suggestions. I highly recommend this book. It is clear and makes sense. Well written too.

    As a pastor, husband, father and caregiver to an ailing mother, I have more than my share of paperwork to manage at home. Hemphill has given me new hope that I can tame the paper tiger stalking on my increasingly cluttered desk! Her techniques are simple, easy to use and to understand. For anyone who is dealing with mountains of paperwork and is frustrated as a result, this title is a must-read!

    I really appreciate any good book on organization. I would like to thank the author for her great advice on how to divide and conquer your "action" papers. This book is a nice complement to "File, Don't Pile" which gives much more detail on how to organize your other paper mess which is your reference files. I recommend both.

    This is the best self-help book ever! For me, it was life-changing! I've never had troubles keeping my desk at work organized and neat, but my papers at home were a different story. It was out of hand for a long time, and now it's under control and I have a system to keep it that way!
