Publisher's Summary

Unf*ck Yourself is the handbook for the resigned and defeated, a manifesto for real-life change and unleashing your true potential.
Have you ever felt like a hamster on a wheel, furiously churning your way through life but somehow going nowhere? Like the happiness you seek, the relationship you crave or the career you've always wanted are constantly out of reach? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you are a victim of your own self-doubt. And now is the time for you to unf--k yourself.
This is not the usual self-help book. This is blunt-force trauma to the way you think life has to be for you. Most importantly, it is designed to give you an authentic leg up - one that feels genuine and right for you and can propel you to new levels of greatness. It will teach you not to look to the outside world for answers but inside yourself. You will learn how to take full responsibility for your life, the highs and the lows, and you'll actually feel good about it - no, in fact, you'll feel f--king great about it!

Concise, pithy, honest

I loved this book, it is quite contrarian in the self-help genre as it is honest.

There are some points I have some reservations about but on the whole, I agree with the premises that much of our experience is of our own making and that an honest self-appraisal will do us the world of good.

Not one to stoke the profitable victim-mindset, and no upselling (for conferences, etc) ultimately he is saying that you are the author of your own reality and that you should own it. There are zen-like moments which seem disturbing on the surface but on reflection actually bring peace.

I have read this book, particularly a few chapters several times now and it has inspired me to tackle a few issues, as a consequence I have inspired some positive action in a few others (mindset is contagious.) E.g. I was nervous about travel (money, safety, practicalities), however I have looked into the matter, prepared, and found out that in fact it is not only very affordable (less happy hours) but very achievable, and very enjoyable, somewhat empowering too. I’ve also got into Microadventures, others are following suite. A minor example but it paid to listen to this (almost on repeat) as opposed to the scaremongering, negativity, and fake news that abounds.

This is a small investment which even if it inspires one small new improvement or positive idea, is worth the 1-3 pints it cost.

I recommend it.
