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?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Just give it a try

I can go on and on about how the books, including this one have helped me but it does not ring true until you read/hear them for yourself. Even if you think you got it all together there is something in Do The Work for everyone. It's one thing to manage your self talk and start believing in yourself but when you have to write down the how's and why's in Do The Work you (I) came up with a whole different accountability logic, it's there .... in writing.... a promise to myself now I have to actually DO THE WORK. My hope is you will just give this a read, a listen (which is far more entertaining in my opinion) I'm one who doesn't have it all together and it made me feel like with this tool I have a chance to get it together. As far down the road as that might be I GOT THIS!

Really ask questions that reveal core issues

So much introspection over the years and this and his other books really do get to the core of it. Questions that dig up the things that really guide us, and then how to use that knowledge to make new decisions, act and take a new path. His material and his delivery really do take cut to the heart of the matter... and inspire change and honest action to ward a different life. He can't do the work for us, but he does provide a way to step back and separate from the life we live on autopilot... and then, from that perspective, gives us a place to take action toward a different life. Doing that, taking the action in each moment that pulls us along form the future we want and want to be... thats up to us. Nothing works for everyone, or speaks to everyone. But I genuinely believe, more than anything I've read or heard, Gary's work is worth the investment and definitely worth a genuine effort.

Another Brilliant reading!

I could listen to Gary give me gps directions and be a superior diver! I could listen to him read recipes, Martha Stewart style and probably become a chef! This is not a self help book. This is a get your shit together book! Organize your life and be a better version of your self book! I’m going to listen to this again and again! Good day by friends!

A Must Listen!

If you want to truly know what's holding you back in life, what's really preventing you from success and happiness, this is the book for you. Do yourself a favor and not only listen to this book, but his other two as well.

Entertaining performance of familiar content

The content was familiar, but I still enjoyed the listen. No original self-help tips, but his gimmick makes it fun - Gary throws in some curses and speaks in his fun Scottish accent about "taking action" in life.

Some of the Best Books

Gary's approach is no-nonsense, in your face, reality for the hard headed. I love his style and own all three of his books, and read them regularly. The books are amazing, and I love this one for the worksheets and helping the reader having to face themselves.

Waste of Credit

Couldn’t make it past 15-20 minutes. Constantly references other book that I haven’t read. Save your credit.

Do the Work

Gary delivers again. He cuts the crap out of every excuse you can come up with to stay in the shit storm you’ve created in your own life. Really, what are you willing??
