    She sounded so much like Carrie Fisher that that is who I pictured reading this book to me. Beyond that, it?s a solid self help book with a curse word in the title, irreverent and funny while pulling down some common sense. As a side note, I find I?m happier when I?m listenin...

    It pretends not to be a self-help book, but it's a self-help book. Shouldn't have second-guessed my bias in this case. ...

    Positives about this book -- this is a short read that is really a set of seemingly off-the-cuff rants that have a lot of truth behind them. Negatives -- I can't believe that people really need to be told how to disregard bad advice that is as obvious as "you can't love anyone else if ...

    Won as an ARC giveaway on Goodreads. DNF. The tone of the writing and the language was not for me. There might have been actual good advice in this book, but I could not wade through the shrill language to find it. ...

    Curse words, to me, are punctuation marks. In this book they are filler. Without them, this book would be half as long. She may have some worthwhile ideas to impart but they are lost in the superfluous cursing. F*** that s***. ...

    This book was super annoying. Her trucker language and "funny" scenarios were really not my thing. I thought it would've been a worthy read but it turned out to be a dud. So unless you have no street smarts and really have no idea how to function in life, don't waste your time. Also, p...

    Have you ever just randomly picked up a book, and found exactly what you needed to hear at that time of your life in its pages? It doesn't happen often, but "So if you're suffering through a deep disappointment now, know this: What you're feeling isn't a sign of failure; it's evidence ...

    Dr. Venus Nicolino, or "Dr. V," criticizes common pop-psychology nuggets like, "honesty is the best policy," or, "you can't love anyone until you love yourself," and replaces them with more moderate, realistic approaches. While some of her advice seems sound, I had difficulty with the ...

    CW: coarse and sexual language, discussion of sex, assumptions that everyone is sexual and romantic, way too much social media lingo +TW: thanatophobia Despite all that, there were some meaningful insights. Just the validation that emotions are NOT controllable was worthwhile. (See...

    Aside from the bit about forgiveness (at least in certain situations) this book was what I had been looking for! I was so sick of the jesusy and fluffy inspiration; or even downright abusive advice- ie people can't hurt you unless you give them permission (gaslighting much?). Highly re...

    The only strength of this book was that it cited some interesting scientific studies. It's short but extremely juvenile and condescending to the point that finishing it was a chore. ...

    "Someone else's definition of who you are doesn't have to be your definition." "There's no such thing as self help: Somebody wrote the book, taught the class, gave the speech: nobody gets through life alone." "Trust yourself to change yourself." "They keep selling it because w...

    I never thought that the best self help book I'll ever read would come from a shrink and yet Dr. V has done a great job here. It's so good I read it twice and I hope to buy the book for myself so I can annotate it. Throughout the book she does a great job dissecting a lot of bullshi...
