Publisher's summary

Based on the life-changing lessons from the New York Times best seller that has sold more than a million copies, a practical, hands-on guide that helps you do the work you need to change your life.

In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop inspired people to put his words into action to help them transform their fu*king lives. While millions of fans have embraced the messages in the book, Bishop knows it can be hard to actually take the next step and do the necessary work. Written in his no-nonsense, tough-love voice, Do the Work is the kick in the ass you need to get moving and create the life you want. By drilling down into the three categories of self, people, and purpose, he helps us identify and remedy the primary problems and challenges that frustrate and often cripple us.

Filled with new material, Do the Work expands the lessons in Unfu*k Yourself, giving us the tools to identify, explore, and understand our specific issues and root them out. As Bishop makes clear, "This is a personal workshop for your brain, a legit resource where you can work your life out, what matters to you, whats going to make the biggest difference and empower you to act in ways that make some palpable change to the direction your life is currently taking."

So, what are you waiting for?

One home run, 2 foul balls.

First off, I appreciate a straight shooter. That's not the problem here. My problem is that I think Gary fancies himself the new kid in school who shows up with a leather jacket, sun glasses and a motorbike, smoking a cigarette and using the word "fuck", expecting the rest of the kids to "ooo and ahhh" at his brandish nature- and to confuse that nature with anything insightful.

Just like his previous book "Stop Doing That Sh-T", this "workbook" is basically Gary rambling on about how everyone is doing everything wrong (except for him, of course. Somehow Gary has it all figured out because he has a degree in philosphy and can quote Aristotle and Marcus Arelius). He doesn't offer much genuine insight. He just purports to accuse you of playing the blame game with anything and everything in your life, then tells you to stop, then to write down an alternative. Add to this, I think he fancies himself a good writer when he's not. Sometimes the metaphores and anecdotes are just way off and too labored....couple them with that Scottish accent and sometimes it's just tacky...but I digress.

The rest is just him repeating himself in his Scottish accent about how you fall short of doing anything effectively at all because....well because you're you and he's Gary!

It's important to note that Unfuck Yourself is one of my favorite books. I think it's amazing and complete. I find it sad that this "workbook" was meant to be a companion, because in my view it had nothing to do with the main book
