    I really enjoyed this book. As an introvert, this touched on so many issues & situations I?ve found myself in. It was spot on. I found myself saying ?Yes, that?s me!? Highly recommend. ...

    Sarah Knight is known for her no-nonsense anti-guru books and while this is the first one by her hand I've picked up it most certainly won't be the last. I loved her blunt writing style in which she gets to the point of what she's trying to convey without holding back at all. Her words...

    I listened to this because I was too tired to read since I was sick all week and therefore I might have missed the point. I don't think I need a "you do you" lesson, because I've never really had a problem with being my own person. I'm a bookworm, who loves electro swing, will (lite...

    I enjoyed this book and especially enjoyed the ending. The social contract can be edited... and you don't have to be a jerk about it. You do you... and let others do themselves. ...

    General advice on being your authentic self and not giving a fuck what everyone else thinks. (But don?t be a big stinky meanie). Some funny zingers. A bit more entertaining than the average book of its type. ...

    I didn't like this book at all. I felt like it was written by someone who forgot to mature when they became an adult. Too shallow, no substance, and part of the problem. This book makes people think the world revolves around them and what the do and say doesn't matter at all. Two many ...

    As far as self improvement books go, this is one of my favorites. It's funny, simple, to the point, with great advice on how to do what makes you happy and why it's ok to put yourself first and stop caring about what other people think. I especially related to the rant about people who...

    2.5 stars. This book had some good points of discussion, but I personally dislike any person who purposefully goes out of their way to show how zany and crazy they are. Yeah, it's great to be weird- I believe in embracing your weird- but this seems pretty attention-seeking. ...

    I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. What an entertaining book! Sarah Knight does a great job of weaving humor into very good life advice. There is a bit of language, so sorry if you don?t like that. A bit of advice: read the footnotes! They?...

    The self-styled "anti-guru" Sarah Knight adds another volume to her quirky, profanity-laden self-help series with You Do You. The focus, as you can guess from the title, is the art of allowing your authentic self to shine through without feeling guilt or being so far out of the soci...

    This book definitely deserves a 4 ?. If 2018 is your year of AUTHENTICITY AND SELF-ACCEPTANCE, this is the book to read. Without a doubt, Sarah Knight authentically shares the best life lessons of you being yourself. This "anti-guru" ? talks of various social norms that made most ...

    I'm a big fan of Sarah Knight's books. Well, I'm actually just a big fan of Sarah Knight. I love her TED talk, her tweets, her writing style, her sense of humor, and her newsletters. So when I saw that she had a new book coming out, I could not WAIT to read it! And when Netgalley sent ...

    I did enjoy this book but essentially it is full of very bad advice that I want to take, especially around Christmas and baby shower season. Haha! I could write this exact same book myself if I too could pack up my entire life and move to the Dominican Republic. Pretty easy to get out ...

    **I received a copy of this book from Little Brown and Company for review** Part ?Return of the Jedi?, part ?Return of the King?, this book nicely rounds out her ?No Fucks Given? trilogy in a way that fans will truly appreciate. Once again, I finished Sarah Knight?s...

    Initial thoughts: not what I expected, but definitely a great read! It's really helped me to see someone else's opinion on how to live life, and what's okay/not okay in modern society and which unspoken rules shouldn't be followed. ??????????????????...

    Eh this felt to me like a long winded stand-up comedy routine that continually referenced points made in her two previous books but in between all that she did make some insightful points about ?letting your freak flag fly? ...

    3.5 stars this book was a good read. I liked most of the advice in this book. Sometime I found the humour miss placed and I didn?t find some parts particularly helpful. I still would recommend this book to read. ...

    As always, Sarah Knight gives realistic advice with a grand sense of fucking humor! I always walk away from reading her books with my head held a little higher & my middle finger ready to extend to those who don?t like the choices I make to improve me! Thanks to Little Brown &a...

    I suppose this book found me at the exact moment I needed it. I am one of those people who won't believe in themselves until someone else tells me that they believe in me. So Sarah Knight's advice of You Do You, wrapped up in perfectly amazing humor, was the motivation I needed to get ...

    There were quite a bit too many plugs for her other books in this one for my taste - but Life-changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck was 99 cents so I'mma still read it. ...

    FANTASTIC!. Constantly on a quest to being the most authentic and best version of myself. The author really gets it and is SUPER FUNNY! ...

    I?ve just finished reading You Do You (Sarah?s third book) and LOVED it as much as the others. It was just the reminder I needed and was such a true reflection of today?s society and the reality of the judgements we face every day. This book even got me singing when I stopped at ...

    3.5 stars, because I didn't love this book as much as I enjoyed Sarah Knight's previous books, but overall it wasn't a bad book. If I was going to reference her books for future inspiration/reminders/tips, this wouldn't be my first choice, but I still found it to be uniquely encouragin...

    Once again, Sarah knocks it out of the park with reminding us that the stuff we think we "have to" do in life--because other people say so, because we assume so without questioning it--just isn't the case. She breaks down how to look at where you've gotten stuck in that rut, and start ...

    The past couple of months, I have been reading a bunch of poetry. After a while, every book begins to sound exactly the same as the last. I wanted to try something totally out of my comfort zone, so I picked up Sarah Knight's book. I heard great things about her first two novels, so I ...

    I liked the overall message of this book, and its theme of being authentic. I once knew someone that wanted me to be friends with one of her acquaintances, because that acquaintance "needed" a friend. I didn't really like the idea, but I had no problem with giving it a try. Soon, it be...

    I found the ideas and amendments of the "social contract" in this book to be very interesting and relatable. In today's society it is easy to get caught up in the endless stresses and pressures of life and whether or not you as a person are doing what we as a generation percieve as rig...

    I typically like reading a motivational self-help book in January. I just found this soooo basic. There was absolutely nothing new that the title of the cover doesn?t cover. Very mehhhhhhh. ...
