Publisher's Summary

The B!tch is back… and she's brought The Grit Doctor along for the ride.

What’s in your handbag? To-do lists scrawled on the back of receipts? An unpaid bill? Half a chocolate bar, covered in fluff? Is your handbag a metaphor for the rest of your life? Has becoming a capable, poised grown-up turned out to be more complicated than you imagined?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, and if you're tired of the crappy stuff in life grinding you down, then it's time to stop whining and Get Your Sh!t Together.

With this funny, frank, and tough-talking guide, Ruth Field and The Grit Doctor will help you:

  • Tackle daunting problems like a fearless superwoman
  • Figure out what you want from life and find the courage to Go For It
  • Learn how to get more sh!t done in less time
  • Stop feeling bad about your less-than-perfect life (because perfection's overrated anyway)

She taught you how to run; now she’s going to teach you how to run your life!

What the Critics Say

“Amusingly vicious... excellent advice all round.” (Emma Thompson on Run Fat B!tch Run)

“Refreshingly free of new-age jargon and psychoanalysis. It's about determination and the pursuit of the 'happy effect.'” (Herald Sun)

“If you're stuck in an exercise rut, this book will give you a rather rude kick up the backside... it certainly shamed us into lacing up our Nikes!” (Closer)

“Ruth is an inspiring running-buddy... By the time I unpack my summer wardrobe, I'm sure my inner Grit Doctor will be my best friend.” (Flic Everett Daily Express)

“A witty, no-nonsense read, it had us dusting off our trainers within seconds. Trust us when we say you'll be up and running in no time at all.” (Grazia)

    "Not the book for me."
    Would you try another book from Ruth Field and/or Ruth Field?

    I would not. In fact, I wish I had known that her first book was called "Run, Fat Bitch, Run," because I would not have bought this book in the first place. I just think Field's message is fundamentally one I disagree with.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ruth Field again?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Actually, I kind of enjoyed her performance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration. I felt like she went over such obvious topics like "don't watch so much TV" and "obsessing over the lives of celebrities is useless."


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a chronically disorganized person who has very little self-discipline, this book might be helpful. If I was to sum up the book entirely, it would be "how to play Alec Baldwin's talk from Glengarry Glen Ross in your head constantly."

    Coffee is for closers. We know that.

    At the end of the day, I think she was trying to solve a problem that I just don't have.

    I have my own slew of "absentminded professor" problems, but being obsessed with X Factor or which celebrities have botox is just not my issue.

    "Just the kick in the butt I needed!"

    This is not a book that cushions the corners, so if that is what you want look elsewhere! Straight to the point, no excuses manifesto and rallying call! I listen when ever I need a booster shot of gumption.

    "Everyone should read it"

    Everyone gets stuck in a rut from time to time. I'm there now and have over analyzed everything possible to get me out of it. Ruth reminded me to just take action. The most successful times in my life were centered around action...not analysis. Happy I ordered this one!!! Already tackling those shelves!!

    "Depends on your personality"

    I am a person who needs a kick in the butt for motivation. I enjoy a bit of abuse when it comes to being told that I am being lazy and or just using excuses for not getting anything done. This helps me when I don't feel like cleaning the house or don't feel like working out. The author is good and the story is okay. I didn't give a full 5 stars bc there was a bit of fluff in the beginning, which she admits too. I also didn't care too much for love issues since I am married and it seems so easy TO ME to have found the love of my life. I found that part boring, but maybe there are women out there who don't value their worth and don't know they can find love anytime if they Only TRIED. Just like trying to keep a clean house; YOU just DO IT.

    "Taking No Prisoners"

    This is a kick in the arse, for sure. Ruth's tone can come off a bit dry, but I do think it adds to the no nonsense, no excuses theme of the book. Major themes: just get it done; stop lying to yourself; find ways to be happy. However, she does have some sprinkles of emotion throughout. I think it was written and performed well - and gave me the push I needed to get my sh*t together.

    "Enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would, it is a quite enjoyable book, she says things we all know but that are nice to be remembered of.

    It's a book you can read many times.

    I don't agree with everything she says, but most I do.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ruth Field? Why or why not?

    Yes I would, she's nice to be listened to.


    What about Ruth Field’s performance did you like?

    Yes, she does read the book putting all her heart into it.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    I don't think so.

    "A no nonsense enjoyable 'listen'"

    I really enjoyed this!

    In the first hour of me listening I realised I'd put on my trainers and walked 4 miles - still listening.

    (And it's not even Run Fat B*tch Run! Haha)

    Which I am actually JUST about to buy!

    I came home and cleaned a shelf!! - two actually! ;)


    I like the idea of it all, I like Ruth's gritty attitude, (she always has a great reading voice, almost hypnotic at times) - it's given me a big kick up the bum this week!

    THANK YOU Ruth.

    "Glad I kept at it!"

    After I hurled it out of the window about 15 minutes in, I then continued listening to her, and went back to clean the window.

    She will work you to exhaustion!
    This book is great for getting you going, good for lazy people in need of a push, potentially dangerous for high achieving a type personalities who are too hard on themselves as it is.
    Aka good to give me that extra push, but I won't be recommending it to my stressed-up-to-her-eyeballs sister.
