Product description

Review

The best book I have read recently . . . Absolutely blinding. Read it. Do it (Liz Jones Mail on Sunday)

Life-affirming . . . The key practice she advocates is devising for yourself a "f**k budget" . . . It's a beautiful way of streamlining your psyche (Lucy Mangan Guardian)

I love Knight's book before I even start reading . . . the book works a charm

(Sunday Times Magazine)

Genius (Cosmopolitan)

Her book wooed me with this line: "Hot yoga? Don't give a downard f***!" She has some frank advice . . . Bite me off a piece of that, I think (Style, Sunday Times)

Yes, it's a parody of a cult book . . . but it's something more, too. Knight acknowledges the overwhelmingness of the modern world in a different way to many before her (Guardian)

Changed my life. To this day, I think about how it schooled me in the fine art of giving less f*cks about people (and party invites) who don't really matter to me, and saving my precious time and energy for those who do. I wasn't alone - the book became an international bestseller (Vogue)

My new saviour . . . hilarious (Psychologies)

This kind-of-genius parody of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up might actually change your life (Women's Health)

Light relief . . . thoroughly modern self-help book (Independent on Sunday)

After reading this book cover-to-cover and compiling a list of ten things I don't give a f*** about (Kanye West and exfoliation figured pretty highly), I realise how wonderfully liberating it is to stop apologising for things I'm not sorry about (Red)

Unashamedly funny, honest and practical book . . . sounds pretty darn tempting to us . . . And it makes you laugh. Bring it on! (Heat)

[A] mix of Oprah Winfrey-style mantras and Amy Schumer-esque obscenities (Elle)

Self-help with an edge (Vogue)

A funny take on that very popular cleaning up book, but so much more. It's about taking care of yourself and not giving a f*ck what people think of your choices (but without being an a**hole). This book is kicking ass all over bestseller lists. Buy it. You won't be disappointed (Jen Kirkman)

This year's must-read [self-help] title (Katie Glass The Sun)

The self-help equivalent of a Weird Al parody song. (That's a compliment.) (Molly Young The New York Times Book Review)

Hilarious and liberating (Fashion Me Now)

There are some really genius life lessons to be learnt, such as ditching "bikini body" guilt and embracing the NotSorry Method. (Elle Australia 2016-02-01)

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k stands out from the self-help pack not only for its frank language and sense of humour, but also because it is about less in a culture of more. (Nicole Elphick Daily Life 2016-02-02)

Perfect for any woman who's finding the festive season a bit too much (The Sun)

Highly amusing (Mslexia)

The missing life manual that everyone should get at birth. It should be required reading in school . . . Sarah Knight is like a modern-day Mary Poppins for mental clutter . . . And her spoonful of sugar is her wicked sense of humour. Every household needs her . . . or at least a copy of her book . . . Outstanding (How to GYST)

A good idea taken several pages too far. Would have been a funny magazine article. As a book, I gave up on it.

I've never read a book with the F-word written so many times but I absolutely love it.

I would happily recommend this book, it is very informative and straight to the point.

This book just felt like common sense and quite a lot of repetition. The author does entertain you but not sure if it's worth it!

If you can mentally replace the f words (which occur a lot) with a milder alternative then the basic message of this book can change your life if you are stressed out and a people pleaser. I have lent it to friends who all agree with me.

It's OK, quite funny sometimes, but a bit repetitive. Feel like the author's really trying to drag one concept out into a whole book. Could have said it all in 20 pages, or fewer.

Annoying anecdotes. Really! We figured this out in puberty.

I found the book way too repetitive. I could not finish reading it; it had become a waste of time by the time I got to the midpoint.
