Summary

From the 'anti-guru' author of the smash hit The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k and the New York Times best seller Get Your Sh*t Together.

In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k, our favourite 'anti-guru' Sarah Knight unleashed the power of saying no. In Get Your Sh*t Together, she prioritised the sh*t you need and want to do so you can achieve your hopes and dreams. Now she's back, doubling down on your happiness with her latest message: You Do You.

Being yourself should be the easiest thing in the world. Yet instead of leaning in to who we are, we fight it, listening too closely to what society tells us. You Do You helps you shake off those expectations, say f--k perfect, start looking out for number one and keep on with your badass self. From career and finances to relationships and family, lifestyle and health, Sarah Knight rips up the rulebook.

Writing about her mistakes and embarrassments in her own personal quest to 'do me' - because nobody gets everything right all day, every day - Sarah Knight shows why you can and should f--k up and teaches you to let yourself off the hook, bounce back and keep standing tall.

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

Fab author!! Fab book!! Highly recommended!

Sarah Knight is my favourite audiobook author!! Listened to all three now. A great listen, things are totally relatable and not took to seriously, makes listening so easy and enjoyable. Fab for beginners on a journey to find themselves or breath of fresh air those that have listened to more and looking for something a little different. Highly recommended

The Truth! It’s fantastic.

Would you listen to You Do You again? Why?

Yes yes and yes. It’s brilliant.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

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

I love the whole book. Brilliant. I also have the hard copy version which makes it easier when carrying out my reflection. Very thought provoking, if you are looking for that little something you feel you have lost inside yourself.

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

Yes, however you can’t because you need to reflect on what is being said to truely embrace her words, if you are serious about doing you!

Any additional comments?

This is a book that you can listen to more than once. So much resonates with me as to how I am living my life, how I have experienced the LCD living Sarah discusses, however her words are kick starting my engines and taking me out of that. How did I come across the goldmine of plain words, plain talk. The title caught me. You do you - I have been searching for something to help me to do me and this is it!!!

Hilarious and thought provoking

When I was sent this book to read I had no idea what to expect. I’m a little bit of a potty mouth myself but I do find myself apologising only to keep repeating the said naughty word. I clenched slightly at the first few pages, only to keep laughing out very loudly on a packed train to Kings Cross, London, at how many times my fellow passengers were trying not to laugh at my own giggling and snorting and their disapproving glares in my direction. I was sure someone was going to ask me what was so entertaining but alas we are British and very reserved 😂😂😂

Hurray for You Do You ... Although already on my own journey of acceptance I can say that Sarah Knight is a girl after my own inner me so I will keep working at just bing me but if it’s ok with you I’ll keep smiling like a loon everywhere I go 💜💜💜

funny and and relatable

I laughed quite a bit and could totally relate to some of the points in the book. Sarah understands herself which makes her quite confident and her style of writing and speaking easy to listen to.

Funny & Brilliant!!!

Snarky remarks laced with some simple facts. Be yourself, be confident, don't be a psycopath. Simple, but near genius. And, another thing.... mostly humerous.

Definitely not a self-help book - which is fine if that’s what you’re expecting.

Can see how this could be useful or entertaining for some.
Personally found it came across as self important and I didn’t enjoy a lot of the humour.
Also thought it was inappropriate of the author to give details about weight in a (brief) section about eating disorders. Felt it reflected a tendency for the writing to come across as thoughtless at times.

Love this!

Sarah reads her books wonderfully. I have liked all her books so far. She has a good sense of humour but gets to the point quickly and concisely.

No my cup of tea

This book takes so long to get to the point or even into anything that is worth doing to "do you" anyone can write a book like this, it doesn't take a genius to give advice on being you or being brave, all in all not very well put together an loads of repeating the same stuff over and over again

After this book I feel more free. I am ME .!

After listening this book I feel like I got rid of the ton of the burdens in my mind of how I should act, how I should be. because in these days when we comparing ourselves to the others who might look like they are doing better and look better - we think that we are wrong, we are not good enough and we are seeking for some kind of mystic acceptence from people who are not perfect either..
Thank you Sarah, this is what I needed the most. by listening you, I felt like you are my friend who is talking to me and supporting me. like that little angel on the right shoulder, who is whispering in my ear that you are not wrong if you are YOU, and you are allowed to be yourself.
I'm 26 years old and still was struggling with self esteem and chasing acceptence from other people. Now I can only laugh about myself and wonder, why in the world I should do that.. I feel like new era just started in my life and I can easily focus on my little weird dreams what I want to achieve. :)

for preople who are considering to read or listen this book and you are also struggling with self acceptance and desperately caring for other people opinion which stops you take the next step in your life, BUY THIS BOOK NOW, YOU NOT GONNA REGRET. ;)
