I don't know how much I really learned from this book, but it sure as hell makes me feel better about saying no to things that I don't want to do! At no stage did the author come across as rude or selfish in not giving a f*ck, but rather self-assured, honest and polite, which is a tough line to walk when trying to declutter the things you care about. I very much enjoyed this.

Goodreads 37/52

megnews I felt I had already learned this lesson but enjoyed the book just the same. I‘ve recommended it to people who have a hard time saying no even when they want to. 3w
hjreviews I‘ve seen a lot of good things about this book, but have previous read, the subtle art of not giving a fuck, and am worried they‘re going to be almost the same book. Has anyone read both? 3w
larah17 @megnews I was the same! Not so much educational but I did like her take on it a lot. @hjreviews I wonder too, I haven't read that other book but I have it on my TBR! 3w

I do not have a problem not giving any fucks. That being said, this a practical way to get there for anyone that does. Funny, short. Her second book is better.

Funny, snarky, full of swears, and actually a lot of helpful advice for being more deliberate about where we spend our energy and less swayed by societal pressures and expectations.

I feel like I haven‘t really been here much. I wanted to share my new reading glasses!! I am still reading The Lady from the Black Lagoon. I love it so much, but March and April have been filled with searching for a car(now that my car is no longer legal for the road) I have been working on some sewing requests (in between my full time job) that will give me a little bit of cash towards a car. It will calm down soon. Then I can enjoy my books.

This was a helpful reminder that I give too many f*cks about what others think, especially in the workplace. I‘m working to rectify that and it will take some time. I appreciate learning ways to improve myself.

Andrea4 Omg I care WAY too much about what others think especially at work too!!! Must. Stop. 4mo
NatalieR @Andrea4 Yes! 👊 4mo
Andrea4 @NatalieR like my bosses should care if I'm a good worker and I should be concerned about that too but what they think of me personally...fuuuuuuuck that!!! 4mo

Easy read but not a terribly compelling book. It didn't feel like there was much movement and content felt redundant. I wouldn't be quick to recommend to others other than for entertainment sake.

I read this and the other “Don‘t Give a F*ck” book out there back to back, for comparisons sake. This one was entertaining, but overall I felt it was useless to me. I guess that‘s good. I already pay little attention to what others think about me, I don‘t attend events I‘m uninterested in, and I am a remote employee so I have no use for office politics or nonsense. I agree with most of the author‘s advice, I just didn‘t need it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

It's more of a skim through than a thorough read. A few lines here and there strike a chord but there's not much to absorb. Atleast for me.. it was usual stuff... Should say i don't really give a F*CK about most of it.

This parody of Marie Kondo‘s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up focuses on clearing out mental clutter and spending more time, energy, and money on people and things that spark joy. A quick, fun read with some useful insights.

I think we can all find something in the NotSorry Method to make our lives better.

This was a fun and interesting self help book that wasn‘t pushy or overwhelming. The author really is great at making her writing conversational and entertaining and I feel like it is easy to take something away from this book.

LiteraryinLititz Looks like yours was published first. I wonder how much they overlap. 13mo
Victoriahoperose @LiteraryinLititz I didn‘t read the other one you mentioned. Was it good? 13mo
LiteraryinLititz @Victoriahoperose Yes, I actually had a very similar reaction to it that you had to your book. It wasn‘t until I looked closer that I noticed it wasn‘t the same book! 13mo

Finished another book from the excellent #FreakyFriday list of @MissAimz_55 😃

This was a fun, quick read. I may have picked up a few tips, but for the most part, this is not new info for me. (Spoiler alert: I don‘t give any excess fucks as it is.) Very snarky and profane, which I enjoy, but it got a little repetitive in parts.

I have already ordered a copy for a friend of mine who suffers from giving too many fucks. 😂

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I liked Knight‘s other book, Get Your Shit Together, more. This one is okay, and really, I‘m all about only giving a fuck about things that really matter, but this one gets repetitive quickly. So, read it. Or not. I don‘t really give a fuck.

Very insightful! There was a lot I would struggle with because I didn‘t want to hurt anyone‘s feeling but this book gave you options to let the person or persons down gently. I felt relaxed reading this and learning how to not care about certain things.

Finished another book off #MountTBR. Since I was less than 20% in, this totally counts.

The information was good, but once the concept of #NotSorry and #NoFucksGiven was explained, I only skimmed through the rest of the book.

Lea Agreed. It was very repetitive. 1y

A rip on Marie Kondo‘s approach, Knight gives the reader practical steps to refocus energy on what matters most to the reader and tools to put it into play. Lots of cursing and snarky jokes are available throughout.

I think this book is good. It did make me realize how little f**ks I give already, since most of the examples she gives are (elitist and) not in my f**k budget. It‘s a good theme overall though, the message is positive and something a lot of people I know could really benefit from. It is really repetitive and wasn‘t always relatable for me and you must love the f word. #readwomen

My new life method is the “Not Sorry” Method. This book could also teach you how to prioritise your fucks, and give fewer of them to things that annoy rather than bring joy. An excellent New Year read. Now...onto living my best life.

I don‘t write reviews often but I have to say that although I have been practicing these principles for awhile, I know a lot of people who can‘t say no. They end up doing too many things they don‘t want & spend money on stuff they don‘t want. I have laughed out loud & recommended this book so many times while reading it, I just had to recommend it here. With the obligatory holiday invitations around the corner, there‘s no better time to read it.

As someone who is already fairly circumspect in how I dole out my fucks (I hang out with cats a lot), I wasn't sure how helpful this book would be. However, some exercises, such as establishing a fuck budget and taking time to come up with thoughtful reasons why you don't give a fuck ("I have a personal policy..." is definitely going to be a mainstay for me) seem quite useful to me.

2BR02B I do think the title is a tad misleading, as it reads like criticism/mockery of the KonMari method. The author is actually a big fan of Kondo, and was inspired to expand her use of KonMari to the people/things she devotes her time/money/energy to. 2y
2BR02B I think this book would be perfect for someone like my mom, who has always allowed the needs of others to supersede her own. Basically, if you are a wife, mother, or daughter-in-law, you probably need this book. 2y
JackOBotts I'm digging this flow chart! I gave this book to a friend of mine a while back; I may have to invest in a copy for myself. 2y

Similar to the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*** but less philosophical and more humorous. This is clearly a parody with some interesting observations and instructions but certainly not a way of life. You want a light hearted book about lightening your worry burden, pick this one up.

I really liked her other book and while this one has some good reminders, I was looking for advice on setting boundaries with harder situations. Quick, humorous, but not enough depth for me.

Simply put: “Not giving a f*ck means not spending time, energy, and/or money on things that neither make you happy nor improve your life, so that you have more time, energy, and/or money to devote to the things that do.” #boom This book doesn‘t reveal anything new that we don‘t already know, but sometimes a little reminder is helpful! It‘s a quick read and gave me small doses of courage to give my time/effort/money/energy to the things I WANT!

YouTube keeps recommending minimalist videos to me. So I thought I'd try to cull my TBR in case the universe is trying to tell me something. 30 minutes later I have given up because what if I do want to read that book on astrology 10 years from now but can't remember the title? 😝
