The no-f--ks-given, no-holds-barred guide to living your best life

You need to Get Your Sh*t Together.
In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k, "anti-guru" Sarah Knight introduced listeners to the joys of mental decluttering. This book takes you one step further - organizing the f--ks you want and need to give and cutting through the bulls--t cycle of self-sabotage to get happy and stay that way. You'll discover:

Profane common sense
I would love more like this one about getting things done when you don't think like the typicals.
It's a snarky tone that keeps the info unboring.
Laughed all day. It makes me want to clean more and do the crappy stuff that is so annoying.
You'll hate it if you cringe at cussing. She has no filter on and that's really hilarious if you have Asperger's or a dry sense of humor.
Even at high speed I could not wait for it to be over. I have read/listened to a lot of self help-motivation books. This is not one that I will recommend. Go find a Zig Ziglar or Tony Robins book. Even in the 1930's you had better books by Napoleon Hill. Get better time management principles from Ben Franklin's biography. Just don't wast your time here.
This was more of a pep talk..geared towards 20 something's. I did not learn anything new..no "ah-ha magic moments. I must say that it was entertaining though.
I loved it from start to finish and plan to listen to it again. Her voice was comforting, real and logical. I appreciate that she shared stories from her own life, which makes this book seem even more real. I highly recommend this to anyone who may need a push in the direction of getting their sh*t together. ♡♡♡
I'd place this in the top 6 of must haves out of the last 30!
Great sense of humor added with a no holds barred to the point attitude.
Fucking hilarious and poignant! Sarah Knight puts to words the way I've been thinking of myself and friends for years.
I make car parts for the American working man, because that's what I am, and that's who I care about.
Either humor or self-help advice. This book provided nothing of value.
Not any of the author's other books.
Her performance was acceptable, but I got tired of hearing her voice after about 5 minutes.
Repulsion, maybe with a little despair thrown in.
This reads more like an autobiography than whatever else it might have been aiming for. It should have been called, "Sarah Knight Presents: I Have My Shit Together". It honestly seems like an ongoing gag that might have been bearable as an article, but 4.5 hours of explosive verbal diarrhea overstays its welcome.
I suppose this is pretty standard in a sea of oversimplified 'inspirational' offerings, but her voice easily drops a 2-star rating all the way down to 0. All of the willpower, impulse control, and the small hints of diet advice (we all know who's reading this book) contained here is so much more counterproductive than the author is even aware of.
This book is neither funny, nor applicable to take at face value. I don't know why it even exists.
So I got this thinking it would be great. It seems the author uses the word shit and other swear words in a vain attempt to drag the book out. It gets repeated so often, along with several other phrases, I feel like I'm listening to a mind numbing brain washing session.
She could have done better. Or used someone with a bit of emotion to their voice. It was like listening to a moron blonde reading a porn script. No emotion, no inflection on the words, just no. Like this was a drudgery. Every time she said getting your shit together, I cringed, completely flat and the swearing was a sad attempt at covering up her lack of ability to write.
