Summary

From the author who brought you the best-selling book everyone is talking about, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k: The no-f**ks-given, no-holds-barred guide to living your best life.

Ever find yourself snowed under at the office - or even just glued to the sofa - when you really want to get out (for once), get to the gym (at last), and get started on that daunting dream project you're always putting off? Then it's time to get your sh*t together.

In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k, 'anti-guru' Sarah Knight introduced the joys of mental decluttering. Get Your Sh*t Together takes you one stop further - organizing the f*cks you want and need to give to help you quit your day job and move abroad, balance work and fun - and save money while you're at it - or simply get out of the door for happy hour every day.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Not accessible, geared for certain audiences

I have to say I struggled to listen to this. Sarah Knight obviously comes from a very privileged background and gears her rhetoric to certain socio-economic classes. While at times she attempts humour, it falls a little flat as it sounds like she's trying too hard.

That being said, some of the advice is useful such as time management and prioritizing - however this sounds like a lot of other self help books and she doesn't seem like the 'anti-guru' she claims to be. It's a little pretentious, constantly talking about her Caribbean housing, when many don't even have disposable income.

She briefly mentions half way through that this book is not intended for such working-class people. That should have been at the front of the book.

Very basic

Should be called "time management for dummies" I got to chapter 6 and couldn't stand to listen to anymore of this. When people have nothing to say they swear - and there's lots of swearing for impact in this book.
Terrible anecdotes and such basic advice for complete dummies.
Stay away if your a grown up.

Same as others, way too simple and daft

Did not like silly analogies and yes she says she swears but for no decent reason, great for her living in the Caribbean, making money for old rope off people that deserve more than this is clearly her goal. Way more out there that is inspiring than this low drivel.

Worst thing You could possibly listen to on Audible

Apart of Sarah Knight's voice and 3 pages worth of some reasonable advise on how to get all aspects of your life together, the whole book is battered on countless swearing, ridiculous analogies, and Alvin and the chipmunks comparisons, to the point of making it the most unbearable book to listen to out of the hundreds I have on Audible... if you want to get the value of her thoughts watch the Ted talk, but suffering finishing this book is not worthwhile.

Upbeat

Would you consider the audio edition of Get Your Sh*t Together to be better than the print version?

Yes, you can listen to this while you get you s**t together! Nice way to listen and be productive at the same time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Loving the Game of thrones references.

What about Sarah Knight’s performance did you like?

Such an upbeat lady, really puts you in a good mood even though you clearly haven't got your s**t together.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

So funny, keeps it real!

Any additional comments?

Good overall read. Quite simple way to manage life when you think about it. Just helps you put whats important in life first! Worth a read.

Very thought provoking, helpful book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I struggle with over thinking everything and finding big tasks hard to comprehend but his book constantly re-iterates small manageable chunks and ways to do it. I really enjoyed listening to this book and some points that I will genuinely use in life.

What other book might you compare Get Your Sh*t Together to, and why?

The happiness project- another 'self help' book that genuinely makes you think and make small changes.

Which character – as performed by Sarah Knight – was your favourite?

N/a

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I really struggled to turn it off although it is easy to drop in and out as there isn't a narrative

just say NO ...... to doing other peoples stuff

this did not inspire me as much as "how to be F**king awesome by Dan Meredith but I liked her chirpy voice and there were some good ideas probably a great started book for people who are just starting to realize they are overwhelmed by life. declutter, say no to doing other peoples stuff etc you may not win loads of new friends but YOUR life will be easier
