Publisher's Summary

From the author of the New York Times and international best seller Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop presents a no-holds-barred guide to breaking through our cycles of self-sabotage to get what we want out of life. 

In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop told us it was time to stop making excuses - to recognise and take responsibility for the negative self-talk holding us back.

In Stop Doing That Sh*t, he builds on that message, teaching us how to stop self-sabotaging behaviour. Bishop explains how our destructive cycles come down to the way that we’re wired. He then identifies different types of people and the ways we fu*k ourselves over: we can’t save money. We land in the same type of toxic relationship. We’re stuck in a rut at work. Analysing why we act the way we do, including what our common grenades are that blow up our lives, Bishop then shows how we can interrupt the cycle and stop self-sabotaging our lives. 

Written in the same in-your-face style as Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t will help us get in touch with our psychological machinery so we learn to interrupt negative thoughts and behaviour before they start, allowing us to give our attention to something else and start to find success in the areas we thought we never could.

We can take back our lives. We may have fu*ked up in the past, but Stop Doing That Sh*t will show us how to break the patterns in order to live the lives we yearn to have.

Mixed thoughts

I’m not completely sure whether I enjoyed this book or not, the lessons are fairly common although conveyed differently to many other similar themed books. I think the written book may be better than the audio book. For me, and this isn’t a criticism of the author at all, I found the narration a bit too shouty which came across as a hotchpotch accented evangelist on a US TV channel.

Nothing new here... a bit disappointing

If you need someone to yell at you about things you probably already know, this could be quite useful. I'm a fan of Gary's other work, but I didn't find anything new or overly useful in this. It's an entertaining listen, as are all of his products, but I felt it was a bit of a waste of purchase for me. It's possibly because I've read a lot in this area previously, but I was still hoping for more than the basics in this book.

Great read

Couldnt listen to his shouting at night, but loved his message and the Scottish accent!
I also loved Garys analogy of creating your vision day by day, starting now, and taking ownership of all that you are while you do it, ugly bits and all.
Can't wait to begin creating my vision of what and how I want to be, relate and experience for the rest of my life.
Cheers potty mouth, and THANKS !!

If you sabotage read this book!

A cannot recommend this book highly enough, for those that sabotage and don't know why, this will give you an indication of what is happening beneath the surface and more importantly the approach to move forward in your life.

Great ready, very motivating

Motivated read that covers many of life’s hard to deal with subjects and really makes you stop and look introspectively and help prioritise things in your life.
