A brilliant, hilarious homage to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, showing how to shed your mental clutter for good. Aimed at overachieving but dissatisfied people everywhere. Sarah's inspirational two-step 'NotSorry' program shows how unleashing the power of not giving a f**k will help you shed unwanted guilt and obligations to redirect time, energy and enthusiasm to your true priorities.
Sarah reveals why giving a f**k about what other people think is your worst enemy - and how to stop doing it; how to sort your f**ks into four essential categories; simple criteria for whether or not you should give a f**k (i.e., 'Does this affect anyone other than me?'); and the two keys to successfully not giving a f**k without also being an asshole.
So, get rid of the mental clutter, ditch the perfectionism and create the life you want - for good.

Fantastic audiobook. Easy to listen to and great if you want to learn or laugh!
I was skeptical as to how much depth the boo would have - I was wrong ! Absolutely loved it, from cover to cover. The narration is brilliant, I laughed out loud many times.
"what a delusion"
I don't think so. Although I'm not a virgin nun for me the F... in every sentence was way too much and after a few minutes it was super annoying. Also I've expected something new and helpful but I've only heard what I had known well before.
When she says that we need to learn to say NO.
Performance was great though.
"Great for those who need it!!"
This book was a great analyzation of how I live my life. There wasn't much I learned from this book as I live this way naturally. But it is a great eye opener for the regular person. And for assholes to learn, not to give a fuck while not being an asshole.
"some good points"
It had some good points but I think better suited for people who get walked all over and cannot prioritize simple options in life (like going or not going to the pub with coworkers). I was looking for deeper, soul changing thoughts to separate work from after work hours to improve my personal/family life. Really the only thing the book told me was to not give a f#*k and not be sorry. As mentioned it shed some enlightenment on simple things to not give a f&*k about but most of it I already don n't give a f^*k about because I have bigger issues consuming my time, money and energy on.
"sorry i could not listen to anymore Fs"
i had high hopes for this for this book after reading the summary, but.......
all i can say is it feels like it has been written by one of the characters from Sex and The City............me, me,me,me, moan, moan moan
Its also my own fault i should have guessed from the title but she uses the F word practically every other word and afterwhile it really starts to grate.
On the positive it kind of worked, as whilts she was going on and on F this and F that and not F'ing wasting your time on things you don't care, I thought yes she is right and stopped listening
"I gave a f**k about this book and it was worth it!"
Hilarious! And not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be a 'mock' version of Marie kondo's book, but that wasn't the case at all. I loved this book!
For anyone out there that feels you care too much about what others think of you or if you feel you spend too long doing too many things you're just not interested in. BUY THIS BOOK! It'll help.
"Best realistic advice"
Loved this audiobook! The advice is so easy to understand and so realistic - a ridiculous number of times I sat there thinking "I definitely do that". I found myself applying the methods early on without fully realising! Think this will be an audiobook I come back to again and again just for a gentle reminder.
"And no f**ks were given"
such a simple yet untapped word/emotion that can make us change so easily.
it's amazing how many other books come with theories and methodologies that take up soo much mental space and practice that one must ask themselves "is this even working?" before going and looking for that simple yet unspoken solution.
instead of looking what you should be doing right sometimes it's better to look where you are doing wrong and just not spend any more energy - and the best part: most of us can actually smile while doing such thing while uttering "f**k it"
imagine now taking control over your life while basically redirecting all that stress/clutter into one single word and punch out that annoying thing "society" wants you to do... because God knows how many other thousand things you need to do with offending anyone in this day and age
"File Under "What the **** was I thinking about?""
It's obvious from the title where this one was going but when it came up cheap I thought "Why not?". It doesn't take a long journey into this book to categorically answer that question. It's not that I mind the f-word or worse in books or films, that doesn't phase me. For example I think it's use at the start of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" is genuinely funny..
Here though it just gets trotted out over and over and over and over again in a book that teaches a mix of the blatantly obvious and expands it to try to make modern selfishness a kind of virtue.
If you need that kind of instruction in being mildly obnoxious and think it's the kind of life and attitude that you would be happy with then jump right in. In truth though there is nothing big and clever about this and personally I would recommend avoiding it.
I'm going to file this one safely in the right place and consider it a lesson learned.
"It isn't that bad despite the language"
The message isn't novel and the 'f-word' is overused but it serves as a good pep talk. I found the book alright and can see my self listening to this again. It was well narrated.
fun to listen to and some good advice. maybe I will check out some other books by this auhor
The author continually states the obvious & seems very pleased with herself. Her catchphrase is repeated ad nauseam.
"Funny and inspiring"
The book is a delight to listen to and makes you think about serious stuff- and re think about things one does without getting any satisfaction from but we carry on doing
I will certainly give more f***s from now on...
This book is written for people who have (big) families, boring office jobs, and loads of (non interesting) friends. I can't relate to this as I don't have ties to my family (already stopped giving a f..k long time a go)
This book could've been written much better, it doesn't even discuss random people like neighbours, social media followers etc. which I was surprised about.
I don't do anything anyway that I don't care about; but I'm a leader not a follower of society
beliefs so maybe that's why. I have a job I love, and have fallen out many times with people who expect my f..k giving on their expectations. To me all this about non wanted activity as pub quiz, is just common sense to say no to. This book is written to general people pleasers. I like narrator though hence my 2 stars and it's okay read if you have problems saying NO!
