Description

From the internationally best-selling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k, Get Your Sh*t Together, and You Do You, a new No F--ks Given Guide to calming your anxiety and getting back up when life knocks you down. 

When bad things happen to good people, you don't need to be caught without a plan. Turns out, you can prepare for the unexpected. 

In Calm the F--k Down, best-selling author Sarah Knight offers a practical, customizable game plan for taking all bumps on the road of life in stride, no matter how big, small, absurd, or deeply real. From accidents to job loss, breakups to deaths in the family, or even the disappointment that your local grocery store has stopped carrying your favorite ice cream, a toolbox full of customizable tips, stories, and advice is your best armor against the crazy world we live in. 

In a nerve-wracking era, it's harder than ever to keep yourself together, but Sarah shows you just how to handle everything life throws at you. Told with her trademark irreverence and warmth, Calm the F--k Down is a call to action against paralysis and an emotional insurance policy for an uncertain future.

Not for Me

I am no stranger to the use of foul language. However, the author's constant and repeated use of this type of language actually detracted from her message. Moreover, insofar as actually helpful information regarding coping strategies, this was either absent, or I missed this information entirely. Either way, this does not speak to the notion that this is a well-written book. I kept thinking that the book was written in a fashion quite similar to what one sees with so-called click-bait on the web. Keep on clicking (in this case listening), and I will start telling you how to manage stress and stressful situations. Unfortunately this was not even the case.

I did not find this book useful at all and in fact found the book itself annoying!

Brutally Honest and Hilarious!!!

Anxiety is a hard card to be dealt but Knight does a FANTASTIC job of keeping things light while addressing real issues with real solutions.

10/10 suggest you give it a read!

Sarah made big changes most of us can't afford

Sarah had a funny delivery and kept me entertained, but I wouldn't say I have transformed as a person.

Her premise is simple: when you get wound up - calm the F down. What she will also tell you is she lives in the Caribbean and leads a much different life than the average North America. I'm not faulting her, just re-iterating that it's hard to relate to someone on island time when deadlines are real and stress cannot be avoided.

Honestly, it was funny and one of the more common sense self-help books I've heard - just don't expect to come out the other end a brand new person.

LOVE IT!

I have bought all 4 of her books (audiobooks) and I really enjoy listening to them. I think the advise is good, practical and delivered in a fun way. I think Sarah has done a great job of being the narrator of her books as this makes the books even more enjoyable and gives it an extra personal touch! Listening to her audiobooks feels like listening to a friend giving you advise - there's some chuckles, laughs and eye rolling involved BUT also a few things to really think about and take to heart! Can't wait for the next book!

Highly enjoyed this book

This book is reasonable and pragmatic in approach. I had a series of major blows in 2018 including injury, relationship, and career that left me often waking in the middle of the night with panic attacks. I found this book very helpful in reclaiming perspective and refocusing my energies in productive ways. Crating my emuppies has become one of my go to lines. And categorizing my storms has been one of the most helpful tactics so far. Sarah is a funny lady. I’ve found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the book. I enjoyed this book so much I decided to grab another by her.

I noticed another review mentioned that she slams Trump. I agree political jabs in either direction have grown old, but she might have a total of 3 witty, quick, sentences about him in the entire book, easily dismissive for the greater content! It really does not have a political undertone to it at all so don’t let that dissuade you.

Sarah Knight is a Treasure

This is the fourth audiobook of Sarah’s that I have listened to. Her books are like visiting a good friend you haven’t seen in a while. Her books are helpful and inspiring - and I LOVE that she swears. I even appreciate it. I love her books - this one came at a time I really needed it. I highly recommend this book!

Cute but lacks substance

I tried to listen to the whole book. I really did. Unfortunately, behind the sarcasm, humor, cute and self-promotional comments that make up most of this book, the simplistic advice that was left was just that, simplistic. This style of the author would make a great and entertaining keynote but that’s about it. Thumbs down from me.

Genuinely helpful

This book was genuinely helpful, I like the casual listening style of this book and the comedic approach also. As I made it to about the middle of the book there were certain things that really did help me release past stresses and worries and also current worries,so along with being funny this book is actually helpful in terms of accomplishing what it is designed to do which is to give you a new way of looking at issues worries and problems. I definitely recommend the listen and read.

Waste of time

It’s not helpful. It’s just stories about her misfortunes and about her adventures that get in the way of her drinking.
Greatly disappointing.
And truly what was the point of the book? Except her trying to sell her other books by constantly referring to them?

Just do yourself a favor and don’t.

Dont waste your time...

Overly simple with spurts of cute bad language and a catchy title. Could not even finish this. Cute marketing at its best but no meat on the pages.

meh.

The first two chapters had me thinking, ok, she could be on to something... and then her liberal rants started! Totally detracted from the message and frankly left me annoyed. Take a page out of Dolly's book and keep your political opinions to yourself. I paid to learn tricks on calming down... don't alienate 50% of your customer base by preaching your opinions. One more thing, after the 15th time of her caveating all the advice with "but I'm not claiming I'm a professional" almost made me ditch the book altogether. We get it. She's not an expert, ok got it, didn't expect you to be. (though she comes off narcissistic when constantly reminding the audience of all the awards and accolades from the other books in the series. Overall there was some good advice, but I probably would not reread.

Hilarious and handy !

Well, Sarah Knight is like mustard, you love or hate her writing, there’s no in between and I happen to love her. It’s handy to be able to go through some hard times while you laugh it out. And, I happen to be both in a Corporate anxiety inducing environment while also being dominican and understanding how crazy the Caribbean can be while you have to “deal
With it”. I highly recommend it if you, like me, are a massive “worrier” and can take it all
In with good humor.
