Publisher's Summary

Compelling and straight-shooting wisdom for coping with whatever challenges life throws at us from the New York Times best-selling author of Unfu*k Yourself.

In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop taught millions of listeners how to silence the negative, self-sabotaging voice in their head to thrive. In Wise as Fu*k, he expands on his ideas, redefining what it means to be wise and showing how to tackle problems and improve our lives and those of others. 

When the storms of life hit us, many of us don’t know what to do - whether it’s losing a job, suffering a broken heart, or just feeling a lack of purpose. We need wisdom to help us navigate forward. 

While the internet is full of seemingly good advice, it isn’t helping us actually change our lives. Wise as Fu*k breaks through the bullshit, providing insight to inspire us in the four areas we need it most: love, loss, fear, and success. 

Written with his widely admired no-nonsense style, Wise as Fu*k provides a welcome fresh perspective to help us transform how we approach a variety of life’s problems. But Bishop makes clear, the work doesn’t stop there. Now that you’ve unfu*ked yourself and and are wise as fu*k about these touchy areas, you can apply the lessons to make a positive impact on the world.

I feel a little bludgeoned but I love Gary.

I have all of Gary’s titles on audible and I’ve listened to them all, more than once. My only concern with WAFL is the last chapter, or actually the last three chapters, seem to run together a little bit.
I’m not sure we needed chapter 12 at all as the making a contribution and “being a player” could’ve been easily immersed in 10 and 11.
But I’m not a writer, he is, and I love his work. I’ve shared a couple audiobooks with my family and I’ve bought this title for my 30-something daughters.
By the way I’m 64 years old retired, and wayy too comfortable. My only saboteur is, myself. Be wise, Brian Mac, Hudson Ohio January 2021.
PS Gary- are you working on teens and pre-teen stuff? I sometimes have to rip my 9 year old granddaughter off the IPad to get to soccer?

Great book, despite the audio quality

I love GJB's tough love style. Despite calling us out on our bull, he respects the reader and expects more from us.

I really hope they redo the audio. I would hate for new readers to have this book be their first impression of Gary.

The truth you don’t want to hear.

If you aren’t ready to take responsibility for your life and your shit, proceed with caution.

Straightforward Leadership

If you have thin skin pass on this author. If you are not offended by cursewords and want a direct approach to strategies for life than read everything Gary puts out. I have and will continue to as he publishes materials. Gary keep up the great work Laddie!

Love the content, not the sound quality

If you’ve read his other works, you know what you’re in for and you’ll love it like you have the others. If you’ve never read it, I suggest reading his first book and then returning to this.
My only complaint is the recording quality. It has a high pitch / tin type sound that was actually painful to listen to at times. It sounds amateurish in quality, like the room or mic wasn’t properly prepared or a sound check done. This is unfortunate because the author narrates it well and the content is moving.

Sage!

The subject (YOU/ME) is grounding. Reminds, reinforces, that you are your gatekeeper and are in control of our own futures. Personal responsibility!❤❤❤
