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!

Cute but lacks substance

I tried to listen to the whole book. I really did. Unfortunately, behind the sarcasm, humor, cute and self-promotional comments that make up most of this book, the simplistic advice that was left was just that, simplistic. This style of the author would make a great and entertaining keynote but that’s about it. Thumbs down from me.

Genuinely helpful

This book was genuinely helpful, I like the casual listening style of this book and the comedic approach also. As I made it to about the middle of the book there were certain things that really did help me release past stresses and worries and also current worries,so along with being funny this book is actually helpful in terms of accomplishing what it is designed to do which is to give you a new way of looking at issues worries and problems. I definitely recommend the listen and read.

Waste of time

It’s not helpful. It’s just stories about her misfortunes and about her adventures that get in the way of her drinking. Greatly disappointing. And truly what was the point of the book? Except her trying to sell her other books by constantly referring to them? Just do yourself a favor and don’t.

Dont waste your time...

Overly simple with spurts of cute bad language and a catchy title. Could not even finish this. Cute marketing at its best but no meat on the pages.

Get it together

I found it to be common sense material. We know it but hearing her tell you to get it together makes sense. I find her to be that girlfriend shaking you to get it together.

LOVE THIS AUTHOR!!!!!

Calm the F*ck Down: How to Control What You Can and Accept What You Can't So You Can Stop Freaking Out and Get On With Your Life is another great self-help book from my favorite self-help guru and goddess, Sarah Knight. What is always most refreshing about her books is the way in which she offers encouragement with humor, whit, and raw honesty. There is never any judgment or room for remorse but instead, her books offer solace and a calm quiet voice in midst of the sh*t storm of life. As I enter into 2019, I could not feel more equipped to tackle my fears and learn to manage my freakouts with grace and complete calmness! Overall, I highly recommend Calm the F*ck Down: How to Control What You Can and Accept What You Can't So You Can Stop Freaking Out and Get On With Your Life to anyone seeking a better life! I look forward to reading more greatness from Ms. Knight!

Liberal Garbage

Complete waste of time. The author uses this as a platform to spread her liberal agenda. As a pretty moderate guy, I found this disgusting.
