Highly enjoyed this book

This book is reasonable and pragmatic in approach. I had a series of major blows in 2018 including injury, relationship, and career that left me often waking in the middle of the night with panic attacks. I found this book very helpful in reclaiming perspective and refocusing my energies in productive ways. Crating my emuppies has become one of my go to lines. And categorizing my storms has been one of the most helpful tactics so far. Sarah is a funny lady. I’ve found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the book. I enjoyed this book so much I decided to grab another by her.

I noticed another review mentioned that she slams Trump. I agree political jabs in either direction have grown old, but she might have a total of 3 witty, quick, sentences about him in the entire book, easily dismissive for the greater content! It really does not have a political undertone to it at all so don’t let that dissuade you.

Sarah Knight is a Treasure

This is the fourth audiobook of Sarah’s that I have listened to. Her books are like visiting a good friend you haven’t seen in a while. Her books are helpful and inspiring - and I LOVE that she swears. I even appreciate it. I love her books - this one came at a time I really needed it. I highly recommend this book!

Like Oh My Gosh.

Feels like it was written for teens. The narrator sounds like a 16 year old valley girl. The author goes on and on about herself while brown nosing her publisher. Repeatedly says "Stop Worrying" My suggestion would be to find someone who is better educated and has a better understanding on the topic.

It's just okay

At first, it was entertaining, kinda funny, she talks about having a few meltdowns over a tarantula spider on her front porch and the degrees of anxiety attacks and how to deal with them. Then she begins her political opinion of our president. I'm so done listening to everyone's political take on our society, I need advice on how to deal with things that I can actually control...not her calling our president hateful names...but then again, the title of the book isn't that classy, so not sure what I should have expected...

Commons sense

This book was complete common sense and way too many examples. Don’t waste your money.

The political quips get old.

I like the presentation but I wish the author would hold off on the political rhetoric. I am tired of hearing it. From all sides. Otherwise, it is pretty entertaining and thoughtful.

Ridiculous amount of cussing

I am not in any way a person who doesn't cuss. I do it all the time, but not every other word. I'm not even an hour into it and it has already gotten old. It's hard to take any of it as well thought out advice because it sounds as if it's coming from a teenager who is away from her parents for the night. I wasn't expecting it to be without some cussing because of the title but come on..enough is enough.

Hard to listen to

Struggled to finish this book. Some ok advice but this women is just so annoying. She needs to be less sarcastic. A little sarcasm goes a long way.
