Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get Your Sh*t Together comes more straight talk about how to stand up for who you are and what you really want, need, and deserve - showing when it's okay to be selfish, why it's pointless to be perfect, and how to be "difficult".

Being yourself should be easy, yet too many of us struggle to live on other people's terms instead of our own. Rather than feeling large and in charge, we feel little and belittled.

Sound familiar? Best-selling "anti-guru" Sarah Knight has three simple words for you:

You do you.

It's time to start putting your happiness first - and stop letting other people tell you what to do, how to do it, or why it can't be done. And don't panic! You can do it without losing friends and alienating people. Knight delivers her trademark no-bullsh*t advice about:

  • The tyranny of "just because"
  • The social contract and how to amend it
  • Turning "flaws" into strengths - aka "mental redecorating"
  • Why it's not your job to be nice
  • Letting your freak flag fly
  • How to take risks, silence the doubters, and prove the haters wrong

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

"Being yourself should be easy..."

It is a good theme to think about, to believe we are worth celebrating. I like her idea to turn flaws into strengths. She embodies it.

AWESOME

Excellent philosophy without being preachy. Love the way the author presented simple concrete solutions! I'd say more but going to get her other books instead!!

Review of You Do You: How to Be Who You Are...

I thought the title held a promise for readers to learn at least a few useful nuggets to employ while traveling the road of life. Unfortunately, there was nothing illuminating and only hours of things that most people in first world countries have experienced and gotten a handle on without a lot of deep thought and no self-recrimination. The listen would have been completely mind-numbing had it not been for the author's incessant swearing and vulgarities. She reminds me of a good female friend at work who speaks her mind and uses the most obscene language while doing so. She is a kick to talk with but a little bit of her goes a long way. In short, this book was a complete waste of money and there are innumerable better "listens" available from Audible..

As always, she rocks it.

Stay for the entire thing- the epilogue is amazing and brings it all home. You do you, but let others be themselves too.

Life changing!

This book is awesome alone, but being read by Sarah Knight herself makes it that much better. I love Sarah's advice and her own struggles in ever book she writes. She puts herself in her books and it pays off. Every word is as if you are finally understanding life and how to live and breath.

What was one of the most memorable moments of You Do You?

I loved the entire book. Sarah has some awesome lines that I will be quoting for years. Great book to empower people (focus on women) to take more control and live happier lives.

What about Sarah Knight’s performance did you like?

She is so real. Not only do you leave feeling like you know her, you feel like she has known you for years!

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Quit over committing to crap you don't want or have time for "just to be nice".

Any additional comments?

I will likely listen to it 10 times.
