Publisher's Summary

Making maturity fun again!

Dr. Faith explains the fundamentals of adulting in this expanded version of her mini pocket zine. 

Spoiler: None of the requirements are about having certain jobs, kids, possessions, and debts or being totally bored and stressed out and hating your life. It's hard work to do adult stuff well but the kind of work that's satisfying because it's about being good to yourself and other people and building a life you're okay with waking up to every day. 

Keep these hot tips around for when you're making big decisions, dealing with difficult situations, or to give to a friend or kid who's making any kind of big life transition. The truth is, adulting is way more fun than kidding. You got this!

a great read, helping getting my shit together

Honestly I've been going through a rough patch with my brain and feelings right now.
Eric's Narrating perfectly complements Faith's writing.
chapter 7 about taking down the mental score board in your head is just what I needed to hear.
I'm 28 with anxiety issues, slight anger problems, and some days depression beats me so bad that even my cats can't help me. but with this book I'm slowly getting better and I want to Thank Faith and Erin for their work.

TOP BEST SELF HELP!!!

TOP BEST SELF HELP - This book 'does what it says on the cover' Dr. Faith (Harper) is right to the point with regard to - carry your own baggage, we all have it and it does take practice. In this audible book, Dr. Faith even refers to her own personal family situation with regard to adulting. She does also use examples of different situations to refer to and she does not use a bunch of technical language so it is easy to follow. In her day job she is a professional, and she wants to help people. The narrator is also really easy to listen to and I have heard Dr. Faith's own voice and the narrator keeps pace perfect in my view. It feels like it is Dr. Faith telling the story too. I notice all of Dr. Faith's audible books are really down to earth and I enjoy all her works. I will listen to this audible book again and again and I recommend this book to anyone and every adult audience.

Thank you Audible for providing this to my membership

Sounds fine to me

I'm glad I didn't let some of the other reviews keep me from listening to this book. The audio quality seemed to be an annoyance to many listeners of this book and was almost enough to keep me from downloading it because who really will pay attention to something that sounds like shit? Me being me, I figured I would check it out and decide on my own if the audio was that bad. To my very pleasant surprise, it sounded fine to me! That smell check passed and I was on my way to enjoying a very simple yet impactful book. I'm glad I came equip with some decision making skills before listening, but I'm really fucking happy to be leaving with a few more tricks of the trade. More than sufficient audio, great content, and just an over all dope ass experience. Thanks doc!

Last "Unf*ck" Book I Plan to Read

I am always a little disappointed by Faith Harper's books, but they do always contain small gems of wisdom. That being said, this is the second book of hers I've read and probably the last.

She should be more aware, as someone who brags about her PhD, that a lot of this book needs more expansion. The book is super short, so I feel that a little elaboration could go a long way.

For example, one of the first nuggets of "Adulting" is "Don't be a Dick".

Cool. But most people do NOT think they are dicks. So this advice doesn't help anyone unless they already think they're dicks.
The only elaboration she gave of this is, "If you know something you're doing is hurting other peoples feelings or making them uncomfortable, see Rule 1 [don't be a dick]."

Another Nugget: If there's something that needs to be done, do it.

Cool....

But how about procrastination and time management strategies?

Another complaint: she swears SO MUCH. I get that she wants to be relatable to her target audience, which I assume is regular Buzzfeed and Seventeen magazine readers.

How many times can a doctor write, "OMG." "Totes." "F**K." "Badass."

I think it doesn't help that her self confidence shows through as extreme pompousness. She is always using personal examples of how great and smart and clever she is.

And BTW, she criticizes other self help speakers and books like they're the devil. Not a great sign of true experience in counseling.

Who do I recommend this for? This book is probably better for high school seniors than actual adults.

If you are over the age of 19, just read an online summary.

Notable Quotes:
"Not my circus, not my monkeys."
"Truthy-truth." Yep. Faith Harper, PhD said 'truthy-truth'.
"If you get up and do the best you can do everyday. Then you'll get the best that you can get."

Faith G Harper is my savior

Very well written and I’m jealous of anyone is Faith’s private practice. This is a warm and welcoming woman who knows what she’s talking about. 10/10 would recommend

It’s ok. A bit too edgy for me.

It’s got some good concepts which I feel were good reviews of things I’ve learned but put all into a book. I personally didn’t like the overt adolescent speech style especially where she gives an example of defending LGBT people against the archetypical uncle by marginalizing his group. Seems like the thought process hadn’t come full circle and missed all the cisgender female Trump supporters which happens to be close to 50%.

Annoying

It’s not the cussing but the way she speaks was too annoying for me to continue listening. The choice of words is irritating

Approachable content! Unnecessary cursing

I loved how approachable this book was, and along with the practical content, I enjoyed the book as a whole. The author clearly knows her stuff! However, just a bit too much cussing. I’m no saint, and I use the word fuck often, but in this context it takes away from the message a bit.

For what it’s worth...

Loved the logic, hated the cussing. I’m shocked because I cuss but it became a distraction. Good book, otherwise.

Common Sense

I guess it would be helpful to someone that's just coming into adulthood. Like age 17,18. Much older than that & it's all just common sense stuff.
