F--k It has taken the world by storm, helping countless people to let go, stop struggling, and finally do what they want; to ignore what everyone else is telling them and go their own way. This now classic book has been updated with inspirational new material from John C. Parkin. For the first time in audio, John shares his irreverent but important wisdom with the world.
In this inspiring and humorous book, John suggests that saying F--k It is the perfect Western expression of the Eastern spiritual ideas of letting go, giving up, and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all). It's a spiritual way that doesn't require chanting, meditating, wearing sandals or eating pulses. And it's the very power of this modern-day profanity that makes it perfect for shaking us Westerners out of the stress and anxiety that dominate our meaning-full lives. So, find out how to say F--k It It to all your problems and concerns. Say F--k It to all the 'shoulds' in your life and finally do what you want to do, no matter what other people think.

I really enjoyed big parts of this book: the importance of "zooming out" to put things in perspective, not sweating the small stuff, not sweating the medium stuff either, and contemplating whether what you think is big stuff in your life is really that important. These parts made me rediscover the wisdom that you can't please all the people all the time.
What seriously turned me off in this book is the risk of turning into someone that finds nothing whatsoever important in life when you say fuck it to EVERYTHING, and becomes a lethargic, passionless, apathetic person.
In short: the "stepping away from what does not matter" part is good, but for ideas on how to build your life around the few things that are truly important you are better off turning to Covey's 7 habits, or Tony Robbins....
Love this Audio book it really cheers me up to think things don't really matter , its a great listen x
