Publisher's Summary

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

Ever find yourself stuck at the office - or even just glued to the couch - when you really want to get out (for once), get to the gym (at last), and get started on that "someday" project you're always putting off?

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.

  • The power of negative thinking
  • Three simple tools for getting your s--t together
  • How to spend less and save more
  • Ways to manage anxiety, avoid avoidance, and conquer your fear of failure
  • And tons of other awesome s--t!

It's a Blogpost. It's a 4 Hour Blogpost.

Would you try another book from Sarah Knight and/or Sarah Knight?

Not likely. I tear through a lot of motivational books on my way to and from work. This one was 75% jokes and anecdotes and only 25% substance.

Would you be willing to try another book from Sarah Knight? Why or why not?

Yes. Her vocal presentation was magnificent. No audio pops. Clear speaking voice. But it'd have to be a substantial improvement in content.

What about Sarah Knight’s performance did you like?

She's really perky. Like, she puts personality into her readings. I appreciate that.

What character would you cut from Get Your Sh*t Together?

N/A

Any additional comments?

I'd put this low, low on the list. I'm in full support of independent authors (You go Sarah!). This book though failed to deliver within the first quarter of the book. It fizzled, and so did I.

Hilarious

If you could sum up Get Your Sh*t Together in three words, what would they be?

Profane common sense

What other book might you compare Get Your Sh*t Together to and why?

I would love more like this one about getting things done when you don't think like the typicals.

What does Sarah Knight bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's a snarky tone that keeps the info unboring.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed all day. It makes me want to clean more and do the crappy stuff that is so annoying.

Any additional comments?

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.

Not what I thought it would be

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.

Basically, do important stuff first.

Although somewhat entertaining, the general premise of the book is that we should do important stuff first using to-do lists. Some of the anecdotes are fun, but then she randomly goes into social political commentary which was annoying.

Amazing

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. ♡♡♡

This will change your life!

An extremely entertaining view of getting motivated. For months I have been trying to get my s*** together on getting an exercise routine in place and actually following through with it. This book has inspired me to execute this task by dividing it up into small chunks. the philosophy works like a charm. Sarah has also inspired me to tackle other aspects of my life such as hobbies and financial issues. But most importantly I'm influenced by the idea of changing my life in the pursuit of happiness. I really hope you enjoy this book I know I definitely have.

I wanted to love this book.....

I did find some valuable takeaway lessons from this book, but overall, I just became annoying.

I'm in a different place in my life I think, I am a parent and a business owner, I really wanted to love this book, but for me it just wasn't.

I picked up another book by Jen Sincero called "You Are a Badass" and that book has really resonated with me.

Practical, funny, exactly the kick in the butt I needed!

After trying countless books attempting to find something this practical and easily applicable, and finding mostly books that were based on religious principles (though not clearly stated in the book descriptions) or applicable only to certain lifestyles - this book was exactly what I'd been looking for. The concepts weren't rocket science, but stated in a way that made me think, "Huh. Yup, that makes perfect sense! I can do that." As a chronic list user, I found her must-do list method is freeing me from feeling like the list is never ending and yesterday, for the first time in years, I ended my day feeling accomplished and like I had it together enough to even relax and watch t.v. at the end of the day! I loved this book and just purchased another book from this author. Can't wait to listen to it!

Out of touch with reality.

This woman is so out of touch with reality. Her initial thoughts include explains how she was stuck at her corporate job being so miserable and making a plan to move to the Caribbean. So she sells her apartment in Brooklyn to fulfill her dream. Here’s the thing. Some people just struggle to get paid minimum wages and put food on the tables. I have zero sympathy. All of this is just in the first two chapters. Profanity was not the issue. I have a elaborate and extensive profanity vocabulary. Wouldn’t recommend it.

Getting my Sh*t Together est. 1988

This sh*t fell into my lap (not figuratively) at the right moment in my life. I was in a downward spiral and felt like a Debbie-downer (sorry Deb, I still heart you). I was lost. I didn't know who I was anymore or what I wanted in life or even for breakfast for that matter (quarter-life crisis, maybe).

ANYWAYS, long story even longer, I listened to this on the way to work. Humor in the morning goes a long way, especially in rush hour traffic. Made my drive much more enjoyable and really made me consider moving to the Dominican Republic (hey Sarah, looking for a room mate?!). Back to reality, I had to get my sh*t together and this book really nailed it on the buckaroo (what?!).

No, this book doesn't give you to the answers to lives mysteries and doesn't tell you to wear matching socks... but GUESS WHAT. I have my keys (check), my wallet (check), and my cell phone (hello? Check) in check. Bank account... check mate. That's different story and possibly a great opportunity to read her other book.

With all the mumble jumbo, worth the read / the listen (whatever you're into, judgement free zone here).
