Publisher's Summary

Joining the ranks of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, You Are a Badass, and F*ck Feelings is this refreshing, BS-free self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations.

Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a f*cking miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

In Unf*ck Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions:

  • I am willing
  • I am wired to win
  • I got this
  • I embrace the uncertainty
  • I am not my thoughts; I am what I do
  • I am relentless
  • I expect nothing and accept everything

Lead the life you were meant to have - Unf*ck Yourself.

You are your actions... not your thoughts 👍🏼

This book was great, he does a wonderful job at highlighting and eliciting that today as a society we’re stopping us from becoming great by being in our thoughts, and instead of acting we are focused to much on trying to change the thoughts of our own mind.

Ok, same old stuff though.

I kind of enjoyed it, the style with which its written is entertaining.. Although the whole time i was waiting for some new piece of information because you're told it's not like other books on self development. Sadly it is, id recommend others, specially since the book is on the short side and can basically be summarized as : dont blame your past, beleive in yourself and take action.

An Unbelievable and Truly Outstanding “ Kick in the Ass”

Unlike most self help books of its nature, this one leaves you with the harsh reality check you are after and actually offers a meaningful resolve for your past excuses on why you are not where you want to be in life. Furthermore, he gives you a roadmap for future success that is simple and actionable.
Don’t pass this one by!

I wish I could give 10 stars!!

If you think this is a book about how to talk lovey-dovey yourself to make a wonderful life.... you are wrong. This book sheds a whole new light on the words that we say to ourselves – yes, but in a very different way than I’ve ever heard before. Words are nothing without action. You will learn about how to fill the gap between words and actions. You’ll also learn how the words you say to yourself – even the positive lovey-dovey ones – can hold you back. Gary John Bishop is engaging, to the point, and very very convincing. His language-four letter words included – is powerful to the point where you feel he is holding you by the shoulders and saying it right into your face.This is the best “self-help book” I have ever come across.

Now I'm F'd for sure!

This book and Gary John Bishop's narration are so Fu*king phenomenal I think He may have ruined other audio books for me for life. Hey, thanks, Gary John Bishop!
His accent, his voice, his intonation was perfect for this type of book. This man needs to be reading books for us all day, EVERYDAY.
His no bullshit, I'm not here to talk about myself all fu*kin day so let's get to it-ness, is a breath of fresh air. The combination of the writing and the story telling is just the right mixture of sweet and salty that doesn't get boring.
Mr. Bishop feels a like an old friend, a long overdue, dearly missed welcome house guest who happens to be great company and just the kick in the ass that the doctor ordered. He's not falling for your namby- pamby, boo- hooing, it's not my fault, blah blah blah excuses. He's way ahead of you. Spoken with a true sincerity , not preachy, but more like he's lived it, and if he didn't experience it first hand, he's heard the same stories with the same scenario's enough times to know that it's universally human and if you just listen he'll help you un-cluster fu*k the mess in your mind, and leave you with a simplified process and a cognitive clarity that brings back memories of the days when you WERE actually who you wanted to be (or still had the energy to try and optimism to believe it was possible), When you were hungry for life and just wanted more. Before all that real life shit happened like bills, and love and failures that mommy and daddy were no longer kissing better. Before you realized that there were a million ways to get everything wrong and no way to get everything right and decided to dull your personality into the equivalent of a house plant.

Anyway, you get it.
I'll listen to it several more times.
Good work Mr. Bishop. If you were here I'd buy you beer, actually I'd buy you a freakin keg, as long as you just keep talking.

BUY THIS BOOK. THE AUDIO BOOK. I'M SERIOUS. DO IT.

Grammar Police: I know, I know... I wrote it just as I would speak it. I'm not a professional reviewer. I'm not trying to get a job with Amazon or Audible and frankly I don't care. I don't make a habit of writing reviews. When I do, make it a habit, maybe, I'll clean up my act but meanwhile, if you don't like it, you can do the opposite of this book title. Fair enough?

Immediately changed my mood, outlook and actions. Author’s voice and style really pulls you in.

I have purchased similar audiobooks books over the years, but never finished any of them due to a lack of interest and/or an uninspiring reader. This audiobook was different in both respects.

The author’s voice and personality is warm, optimistic, and engaging, but not without some rough edges (in a good way). He reminds me of Robin Williams’ character in Good Will Hunting, but with a rich Scottish accent.

His points are simple and clear. Most of what he says is very intuitive. It’s the way he ties everything together - combined with his excellent voice and delivery - that make this audiobook stand out. A word of caution: The ending is powerful and packs a real punch, so plan accordingly (best if you are alone).

For reference, I am a 50 year old industrial engineer and emergency physician. I have no personal or business ties to the author. I feel this audiobook would be useful to almost anyone, regardless of their age, gender or socioeconomic background.

I listened to it over the past three days and it has already had a very positive effect on my inner dialogue, mood, and most importantly, my actions.

I am now listening to it again. Partially to reinforce everything, but mainly because I just really enjoy hearing his voice and his message encouraging me on.

Good job Gary!

I've read dozens of self help books and this book is one of the best. I love the honest straight forward delivery and the message is spot on. I recommend people read this book several times as there's too many great points that can be missed.

Short and bitter

A very quick read and quite a good kick in the ass. Motivation and wisdom from the ages. Could easily read bits over and over, even just to remind yourself to stop reading and start doing.

***** great book. No Bullsh*t, just lays it out.

I suggest this to anyone who is feels like they are struggling in life. -- Also I've read complaints about his Scottish accent, I disagree, I think his accent adds a nice touch. Plus any book read by the author puts weight to the words, in my opinion. If you need a pick up in life, this is a great book.

Get it. Now.

Really great timing for me on this book. I've been awakening to the realization that my life is NOW not in the future and it's up to me to make it what I want.

In many ways this book is not revolutionary. We've heard much of this stuff, but it's delivered in a way that is very immediate and - I found - empowering. I just finished it and I plan on immediately re-listening to it and I'll probably listen to it many times. Not because the concepts are difficult but as a reminder. I listened to it while cleaning the kitchen and cooking.

I'm glad the author read this. One listener said they had a hard time understanding the Scottish accent, but I found it to be quite clear. (Plus, I love Scottish accents!)

Wow. Clear steps to take action.

This is the first personal development book I've read to offer very clear steps to be taken right now. This book is not full of concepts, but full of real moves to make change your real life.

Great discovery! 5☆!

I've read a lot of self help and personnal development books over the last year and the delivery and the content of this one is very special for some reason. (And that voice, omg!) Easy to read, short and straight to the point. LOVED IT. It's the kind of book I'll read way more than once. A self help book that REALLY helps (without any sort of superior spiritual antity..just your own psychology and brain). I am looking forward to read more from that author. ♡♡♡
