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!

Like Oh My Gosh.

Feels like it was written for teens. The narrator sounds like a 16 year old valley girl. The author goes on and on about herself while brown nosing her publisher. Repeatedly says "Stop Worrying" My suggestion would be to find someone who is better educated and has a better understanding on the topic.

The political quips get old.

I like the presentation but I wish the author would hold off on the political rhetoric. I am tired of hearing it. From all sides. Otherwise, it is pretty entertaining and thoughtful.

Ridiculous amount of cussing

I am not in any way a person who doesn't cuss. I do it all the time, but not every other word. I'm not even an hour into it and it has already gotten old. It's hard to take any of it as well thought out advice because it sounds as if it's coming from a teenager who is away from her parents for the night. I wasn't expecting it to be without some cussing because of the title but come on..enough is enough.

Hard to listen to

Struggled to finish this book. Some ok advice but this women is just so annoying. She needs to be less sarcastic. A little sarcasm goes a long way.

Don’t waste your hard earned money

The author does an okay job of suggesting how to rationalize various types of anxiety, but she lost me with her political snarky remarks. I’m not an expert at self-help writing, but I think a good start would be to not make the paying customer feel like the enemy. In a world that is overwhelmingly divided, I thought this book would have a touch of bipartisanship (or no political opinion at all) Can anyone recommend a book for anxiety stemming from “progressives” that want to shove their agenda down my throat? Returning this book now and exchanging for something a little more open minded.

This book is a waste of time!

Through the whole book all she does is name drop all her series of books that she written, and the amount of F bomb dropped in the book...not even funny necessary!!! This information I can get from YouTube or Google! Super boring 😴

Disappointed

I purchased this book because I am currently in crisis. While getting ready for work this morning I decided to start listening. Within the first 20 minutes or so of the narration, Sarah, not so thinly veiled, slams President Trump. "In an election of monumental consequence, millions of people cast their vote for an ingrown toenail in a cheap red hat" (yes, I had to listen to that twice to be sure of what I heard.) I chose this book so I can continue to move forward from my situation, not to listen to nasty negative slams on the administration. I cannot watch any news without the hate, I cannot participate in social media without being barraged with hate and I didn't expect it from a self help book.I am hopeful that audible will refund my credit so I can make better selection. As a side note: Rachel Hollis' "girl wash your face" is wildly popular. Everyone that I know that has read it, both liberal and conservative friends, loved it! Here's a thought.She didn't bring politics into her story!

Enjoyed the book!

enjoyed the narrator and it really helped to hear that i'm not the only one who struggles with anxiety and getting stuck on one thing which makes it difficult to move on
