Don't waste your time. What a useless book. Was on the best seller lists for years I believe but only because of the title - the book itself is an excuse to use the word f*ck then throw in some words inbetween and then say f*ck again and again and again. The audio version is impossible to listen to for longer than five minutes, seriously. Baaaaad book.

A refreshing approach to modern problems. It avoids the cliches of self help writing with hilarious anecdotes

Enjoyed the information. It highlights that we should take accountability for our actions. Key point: Chapter 1, 6-10 is where the best information. Chapter 2-5 drags on with just stories and doesn't have quality content. What I took away from this book? Don't try to keep up with the Jones', don't stress about things, accepting of failures &negative things, I'm not better than anyone else & vise versa....all just not giving a f***😋.

I read this book too late in life, I’ve already learned to live my own life and not care one whit about keeping up with the Jones.

When Che died he shouted, 'Don't shoot me; I am worth more alive than dead!'.....just in case you are one of those with his image on your wall in your dorm-room or on your t-shirt....Che was known as King Of The Firing Squads.

The contents of the book are like the title. It's light, humorous and bloody true. Recommend to those who feel kinda lost recently.

Tried to read this book - placed a hold in October and was 58 in line. Go to check on the wait time today - turns out the library cancelled my hold for no apparent reason...thanks.

Though many of the quotes and the Do Something principle resonates with me, I found this book quite repetitive and somewhat unoriginal - that is, many of the concepts I’ve read already somewhere else. I found the title to be more of a sales tactic than what I expected out of it. The beginning was much more honest and had witty humour, but then as the author attempted to delve deeper into self-realizations, it started to get dry and I found myself just trying to finish the book. Nevertheless, not a bad read if you’re curious!
