    I took this book's advice and stopped spending time I don't have with an authorial persona I find vaguely irritating reading this parodic self-help guide that offered neither sufficient laughs nor sufficient guidance to merit completing it. All of the best parts of the book are condens...

    I don't know how I feel about this. I can't really tell you how successful it is as a parody because I didn't read the original. To borrow a phrase - I don't give a fuck about Marie Kondo. My life is as tidy as I need it to be and I don't want to waste my time on something just because...

    I thought this would be all sass/irony, but there's a lot of substance as well. The author gives good hands-on tips while explaining how life will improve when you prioritize what's truly important to you. Knight mentions she wrote this in a very short time (per her contract), and it's...

    I loved this book! It's hilarious and actually quite helpful! I didn't realize that I already followed a lot of the advice she gives. I really disliked The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing which this book parodies, and was so tired of r...

    Truthfully, I really liked what Sarah Knight is saying in her self-help book: The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck. It's basically stressing prioritization of emotions and commitments but in a modern, casual way. She makes some good points and gives great examples for how not g...

    I loved Marie Kondo's book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, so I'm quite drawn to the idea of using her essential question, "does this spark joy?," to evaluate more things. In this book, Sarah Knight leads readers to ask this for everything that ever occupies our thoughts. You s...

    This was one of the most enjoyable and funny self-help books I've read to date. Sarah Knight, inspired after reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, decided to write a book to help you get rid of the mental clutter in your life - essentially, giving a fuck about t...

    I wanted to like this book, I really did. But I didn't give a F*&k about it. Luckily, the author won't care what I say about it since not caring about criticism is part of her credo. It could have been good, but she uses f*$%k so often (several times per page) that the novelty wear...

    Only 3 stars for writing and overuse of the F word. I have no objection to the word, but 20 or 30 times per page is a little repetitive. However, the content was excellent. Written as a parody of Marie Kondo 's book about tidying up your home, Knight advises us to tidy up our mental sp...

    3.0 Stars I absolutely loved the concept behind this book. I often feel overwhelmed by obligations, filling my free time with activities I feel like I'm "suppose to" attend. Then when I turn down invitations, I ultimately feel guilty. Coming in under 300 pages, I breezed through...

    Sometimes in life you need the obvious pointed out to you in a simple, well laid out and humourous way. I ahve read many self help books in my quest to be less of a doormat, say 'No' with good grace ,conviction and no exposition and at the age of 40 was no closer to finding the solutio...

    So many fucks I've given that I can't get back. This book really opened my eyes to the kind of shit I put myself through by feeling obligation to people who don't feel it to me, and similar situations with worrying and spending time, energy, and funds towards stuff I don't want to do. ...

    Funny and realistic - the main thing I got from this book was that it is ok not to say yes to everything, as long as you are polite and honest about it. In other words, to quote the book, "Don't be an asshole" . ...

    I find Sarah Knight's work boring and contrived... Each page is a bloodless artifice... and she goes on about it for the sake of it... to fill, pad, word count the pages... It is a collection of dry musings... I'd rather have a safe drop on my head... Chris Robert...

    Disguised as a parody of an equally awesome book, this one is really a self-help book. And it's such a useful one. Basically, the author argues that you only have so much time and energy and money in life and you can't care about everything, so you're allowed to be choosy. But th...
