Enjoyed this lighthearted romp through self help.

All the principles discussed are well known. Matthew Kimberley just put a middle English twist to it.
Easy to listen to. Up to the listener to practice what is taught :)

So disappointed

It sounded like it might be a lift hearted funny self help book, instead it’s reused and boooooooring
Really regret buying it and wish I could swap it for something not a wasted few precious hours of my life ..... I Was hoping my husband would enjoy the aspect, instead I feel like I’ve lost my chance to get him into audible

Mixed feelings

The premise of the book is not to impart new knowledge, but to remind you of things you already know. This is made absolutely clear at the start of the book. In this respect, I felt the book performed well. However, I found some information oversimplified and I was still disappointed with the contents overall. The humour was enjoyable, but not nearly as entertaining as I thought it would be. I did like the bit in front of the mirror; I had a good laugh there.

Get a F*cking Grip

Definitely made me laugh several times. The first half of the book was good and then it just trailed off. It's worth a listen for a chunk of it. However, there came a point where it got so simple and "dumbed down" that I lost interest and stop returning to the book, which led me to return it. I would give the author a try again, but I want him to focus on a single topic or two, so it doesn't sound like a string of blog posts. The chapters are short, which can be good, so you focus on a specific message, however, after a while it was like.... I could have read that from my facebook feed by my smart buddy after he had a couple of beers. Then again, I'm still a serious MFer aren't I? Seriously though the author is funny and I wish I could've finished and loved it. You're probably gonna laugh. The singing out load and wiggling you bits in front of a mirror made me chuckle just now.
