Friday Review: Unf*ck Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop (Audiobook)

Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Okay, so this book isn’t going to provide much in the way of new and brilliant insights into the ways we can defeat our own selves when we get stuck in a familiar mindset. If you look closely, each of the seven chapter headings/affirmations here are things that we have all heard before. What I liked about this approach is that it is very short and to the point, almost blunt in spots, and doesn’t get all warm-and-fuzzy about any of it. Rather, here we have a kick-in-the-pants, get in gear and do something approach. It isn’t for everyone, but if I found it kind of refreshing. I get that not everyone will appreciate the sometimes harsh language and the “it’s all in your head” attitude just isn’t right for some. And that’s okay. For me, a lot of the straight at you and stripped down language connected. It’s left me with some things that help to remember when stuck in a rut.

The audiobook is read by the author and his animated, Scots-accented narration made it quite an easy listen. It’s also short, so it doesn’t require a huge time commitment to get through it. I found it worth the 3 1/2 hours.
