If you've ever felt overburdened, underappreciated or just downright fed up with your life, stop what you're doing and give this a try. Sarah Knight's approach in The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*k is every bit as sorry-not-sorry as you'd expect.
A brilliant, hilarious homage to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, showing how to shed your mental clutter for good. Aimed at overachieving but dissatisfied people everywhere. Sarah's inspirational two-step 'NotSorry' program shows how unleashing the power of not giving a f**k will help you shed unwanted guilt and obligations to redirect time, energy and enthusiasm to your true priorities.
Sarah reveals why giving a f**k about what other people think is your worst enemy - and how to stop doing it; how to sort your f**ks into four essential categories; simple criteria for whether or not you should give a f**k (i.e., 'Does this affect anyone other than me?'); and the two keys to successfully not giving a f**k without also being an asshole.
So, get rid of the mental clutter, ditch the perfectionism and create the life you want - for good.

i had high hopes for this for this book after reading the summary, but.......
all i can say is it feels like it has been written by one of the characters from Sex and The City............me, me,me,me, moan, moan moan
Its also my own fault i should have guessed from the title but she uses the F word practically every other word and afterwhile it really starts to grate.
On the positive it kind of worked, as whilts she was going on and on F this and F that and not F'ing wasting your time on things you don't care, I thought yes she is right and stopped listening
A man with a child in his ears - @ShutterSpin.
It's obvious from the title where this one was going but when it came up cheap I thought "Why not?". It doesn't take a long journey into this book to categorically answer that question. It's not that I mind the f-word or worse in books or films, that doesn't phase me. For example I think it's use at the start of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" is genuinely funny..
Here though it just gets trotted out over and over and over and over again in a book that teaches a mix of the blatantly obvious and expands it to try to make modern selfishness a kind of virtue.
If you need that kind of instruction in being mildly obnoxious and think it's the kind of life and attitude that you would be happy with then jump right in. In truth though there is nothing big and clever about this and personally I would recommend avoiding it.
I'm going to file this one safely in the right place and consider it a lesson learned.
such a simple yet untapped word/emotion that can make us change so easily.
it's amazing how many other books come with theories and methodologies that take up soo much mental space and practice that one must ask themselves "is this even working?" before going and looking for that simple yet unspoken solution.
instead of looking what you should be doing right sometimes it's better to look where you are doing wrong and just not spend any more energy - and the best part: most of us can actually smile while doing such thing while uttering "f**k it"
imagine now taking control over your life while basically redirecting all that stress/clutter into one single word and punch out that annoying thing "society" wants you to do... because God knows how many other thousand things you need to do with offending anyone in this day and age
I like how it was written in a very fun style, with plenty of pop culture references.
Any book about focusing on things that bring you joy in your life will give you the same message. This book gives you the message with more cursing and bold language.
I liked her voice a great deal and it made the story more personal for me.
I did have a few laughs here and there.
Great book, and it will make you think about the things that mean the most to you in your life.
Concept sounded interesting. Executed poorly. I expected wit, instead i got trash! The repetitive use of the phrase "give a..." is initially entertaining and funny. By the end of chapter 2 it becomes strenuously difficult to read or listen to. I am by no means against the use of expletives in literature, however this book is crass in its tedious over-use of foul language for the sake of using foul language. Doesn't help that I am not the writer's target demographic but still.....Awful
This is really funny. I think the narration really makes it. Some sound and basic wisdom delivered brilliantly by the author's narration.
An original, fresh take on the MariKondo method - using similar principles to de-clutter your schedule and your mind.
Do you ever feel a sense of overwhelm in any areas of your life?
- you can be sure that some of things causing you stress or pressure can be 'released' or let go without any serious consequences - thereby freeing up time and energy for YOU :)
Hilarious! And not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be a 'mock' version of Marie kondo's book, but that wasn't the case at all. I loved this book!
For anyone out there that feels you care too much about what others think of you or if you feel you spend too long doing too many things you're just not interested in. BUY THIS BOOK! It'll help.
"I love the book. "
I love this book so much. it should be the number one guide to life.
"what a delusion"
I don't think so. Although I'm not a virgin nun for me the F... in every sentence was way too much and after a few minutes it was super annoying. Also I've expected something new and helpful but I've only heard what I had known well before.
When she says that we need to learn to say NO.
Performance was great though.
"Great for those who need it!!"
This book was a great analyzation of how I live my life. There wasn't much I learned from this book as I live this way naturally. But it is a great eye opener for the regular person. And for assholes to learn, not to give a fuck while not being an asshole.
"some good points"
It had some good points but I think better suited for people who get walked all over and cannot prioritize simple options in life (like going or not going to the pub with coworkers). I was looking for deeper, soul changing thoughts to separate work from after work hours to improve my personal/family life. Really the only thing the book told me was to not give a f#*k and not be sorry. As mentioned it shed some enlightenment on simple things to not give a f&*k about but most of it I already don n't give a f^*k about because I have bigger issues consuming my time, money and energy on.
