Summary

From the author of the New York Times and international best seller Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop presents a no-holds-barred guide to breaking through our cycles of self-sabotage to get what we want out of life. 

In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop told us it was time to stop making excuses - to recognise and take responsibility for the negative self-talk holding us back.

In Stop Doing That Sh*t, he builds on that message, teaching us how to stop self-sabotaging behaviour. Bishop explains how our destructive cycles come down to the way that we’re wired. He then identifies different types of people and the ways we fu*k ourselves over: we can’t save money. We land in the same type of toxic relationship. We’re stuck in a rut at work. Analysing why we act the way we do, including what our common grenades are that blow up our lives, Bishop then shows how we can interrupt the cycle and stop self-sabotaging our lives. 

Written in the same in-your-face style as Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t will help us get in touch with our psychological machinery so we learn to interrupt negative thoughts and behaviour before they start, allowing us to give our attention to something else and start to find success in the areas we thought we never could.

We can take back our lives. We may have fu*ked up in the past, but Stop Doing That Sh*t will show us how to break the patterns in order to live the lives we yearn to have.

Garbage

Spends 3 hours saying this book will help you change your life. Hints at having all the answers you need to hear without actually giving advice, real strategies or examples. Then the only part of the book that isn’t a trailer ends up saying childhood trauma, abuse, psychological disorders etc are all irrelevant and you just need to snap out of it and focus on the future. Complete Garbage.

Way too shouty judgemental

The message gets lost in the shouty judgemental rants. This is all I remember from this book. It’s a shame I’m sure there were some real lessons that could have been useful.

Stop Doing That Sh*t

A brutally honest look at tackling yourself. No frills, no wishy washy compliments, just pure calling yourself out on your own sh*t.
if you don't like swearing, if you don't like looking at your own short-comings , if you don't like brutal honesty... don't read this book.

Excellent!

Another excellent book. The way Gary cuts through all the usual self help bs with refreshingly honest and thought provoking content is a revelation! Highly recommended the audio version!

Awful voice

Really enjoyed previous books but could not stand his voice shouting through this book. Had to return before finishing.

Please read this book.

Gary pulls no punches, and wow, how he hits home! This is one of the most powerful ‘listen to’ books that I’ve experienced on Audible. I know I will listen to it time and time again because I need help freeing myself from my old ingrained opinions about myself and the world. But how wonderfully did he explain the ‘thrown’ part of our belief about life!!! That has changed the way I see everything. Thank you Gary.

rubbish

the whole notion of this book seems to be based on the idea that you can just shout at people to make them wake up and realise they should change. it doesn't actually tell you anything, or impart any wisdom or useful information..

total snake oil.

Got to the root or it

Got to the root of most problems and told you how to get out, worth listening to.

A worthwhile listen

90% of the book tells you what you're doing wrong with your life, but if you're patient enough, the final 10% helped me to reframe my perspective of my life choices nd most importantly my future.

This is REAL advice!

This is the first book that I’ve felt has put the finger on the true key of personal development and growth. Everything else is either BS or good books to become more organized and efficient!
This books addresses the core of every person’s problem for not fulfilling their potential.
Strongly recommend!

Masterpiece

From beginning to end it is worth every word. Great book. Forth time I've listened to it and I know I'll do it again because I still need it.
