Book Description

24 Mar 2014 F**K It

F**k It has taken the world by storm, helping countless people to let go, stop struggling and finally do what they want; to ignore what everyone else is telling them and go their own way. This now classic text has been updated with inspirational new material from John C. Parkin.

In this inspiring and humorous book, John suggests that saying F**k It is the perfect Western expression of the Eastern spiritual ideas of letting go, giving up and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all). It's a spiritual way that doesn't require chanting, meditating, wearing sandals or eating pulses. And it's the very power of this modern-day profanity that makes it perfect for shaking us Westerners out of the stress and anxiety that dominate our meaning-full lives.

So, find out how to say F**k It to all your problems and concerns. Say F**k It to all the 'shoulds' in your life and finally do what you want to do, no matter what other people think.

More About the Author

John C. Parkin, the son of Anglican preachers, realised that saying F**k It was as good as all the eastern spiritual practices he'd been studying for 20 years. Having said F**k It to a top job in London, he escaped to Italy to set up the retreat centre The Hill That Breathes, where he now teaches regular 'F**k It Weeks' with his wife Gaia. He has been featured on T.V., such as The Graham Norton Show, and in the national press, including The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, Psychologies, Cosmopolitan and Red Magazine.

Review

Everyone can relate to F**K It. (The Times)

John combines Wayne Hemingway's style with Eddie Izzard's flights of surrealism. (The Guardian)

The perfect book to help. (Now Magazine)

This year, dare to say F*** It... I did it. I relaxed, let go, told the truth, did what made me happy and accepted everyone... I don't feel like a martyr and I had real fun. (Suzy Greaves Red Magazine)

Parkin immediately realized that he was on to something and wrote his first F**k It book, The Ultimate Spiritual Way, in a frenzy. By 2008, it was an international bestseller. He has now updated that book, adding a further 10,000 words in which he extrapolates the idea into every area of our lives, from diet, to illness, to self-control, to fear. (The Independent)

Something making you unhappy? One man's F**k It therapy teaches us to let go. (Metro)

John and Gaia's first F**k It workshop in 2005 was a sell-out. And through their books, retreats and workshops the couple have since taught thousands of people worldwide the F**k It philosophy. (The Sun)

From the Back Cover

'Everyone can relate to F**k It.' - The Times

Saying Fuck It is like a massage for the mind: relaxing you, releasing tension, allowing you to give up on things that aren't working. Just starting to say Fuck It can transform your life. And John C. Parkin argues that saying Fuck It is a spiritual act: that it is the perfect western expression of the eastern ideas of letting go, giving up and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all). This is the Fuck It way.

John C. Parkin, the son of Anglican preachers, realised that saying Fuck It was as good as all the eastern spiritual practices he'd been studying for 20 years. Having said Fuck It to a top job in London, he escaped to Italy to set up the retreat centre The Hill That Breathes, where he now teaches regular 'Fuck It Weeks' with his wife Gaia. He writes regularly on his website (thefuckitway.com) and has been featured on T.V., such as The Graham Norton Show, and in the national press, including The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, Psychologies, Cosmopolitan and Red Magazine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, caution advised 29 Sep 2013
By Kat
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I agree with the 'graphic artists' review here. I come from the other end of the spectrum of addiction and alcoholism, where I suffer as a family member of alcoholism, and have done since childhood. And am therefore unable to simply apply the 'fuck it' theory to my own life. In fact, to do so would be nothing short of disastrous.

I feel this book maybe more applicable to people who have had the good fortune of avoiding the sadistic and severely traumatic experience that is addiction. Saying that, I would still strongly advise that you know yourself inside out before starting to use the 'fuck it' theory as a rule to live your life by.

I get the authors overall message. BUT as my heading states; it is 'not for everyone, and caution is advised'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning to accept things, the F**k It way 12 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
John has such a brilliant way of writing, and expressing his emotions. I loved this book and read it from cover to cover within a few days, and will definitely be dipping back into it again. Having a F**k it attitude doesn't mean not caring, but it aims to teach you to focus on the present. We spend so much of our lives worrying about the stuff that doesn't matter. John states: "Life just flows" and that "Accepting everything, just as it is, is a beautiful state to get to". I love everything about the F**k It philosophy and am lucky enough to have been to a retreat, I'm striving to live a F**k It life, and you can too. Can't recommend this book highly enough, in three simple words - 'Just buy it!'

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing - not for me 21 Jan 2011
By hughie
Format:Paperback
This book has one idea which is repeated again and again. The author has very little insight and I find the humour grating after a while. And then for some reason he tags on some tai chi exercises at the end, simply to fill some space. Two stars for a good cover though!

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and true 4 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Puts in to simple words what so many philosophies can't. Helps you find yourself by saying "look, there you are!".
Read it and be liberated.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could do more harm than good. 14 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't normally write reviews but I think buyers should know more about this book. As some who has battled with lethargy and alcoholism for a while now, the message of the book is potentially problematic. The idea of eat what you want, drink what you want, if you don't want to exercise don't bother etc. etc. may work for some people but many may read it and think, ha...well I'll just watch the TV and crack a beer. If I took the book's advice tonight I'd be in a back in bad place.

I've read many self help books which have drastically improved my situation and made me a much happier, freer person. I think this one might be better avoided.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely helpful 10 July 2009
By Lisa Maynard VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I read tons of spiritual books and this one had a really refreshing approach - honest, lightweight, matter of fact, funny and not in the least po-faced. The exercises and the tips about deep breathing are genuinely useful. I will read this again and again, I'd like a follow up book though because I felt like we weren't getting everything from the author that we could! Loved it.
