Generally I think most self help books are a load of b*ll*cks. This one though I rather enjoyed.
F**k It describes itself tongue-in-cheek as “the ultimate spiritual way”. It’s basically about saying f**k it more and being happier in the process. I was going to write a synopsis in my own words, but f**k it I’ll just copy what it says on the back of the book instead.
“To say f**k it feels good. To stop struggling an finally do what you fancy: to ignore what everyone’s telling you and go your own way feels just great … 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 dominates our meaning-full lives”
I think the world would be much happier place if we all said f**k it more often.
While we’re on the subject of sweary self help, I also wholeheartedly recommend You Have Too Much Sh*t. This one is all about wanting less and living more, getting rid of all the sh*t you have too much of and being much better off for it. It’s a free PDF download and only takes minutes to read. Let’s face it, we all have too much sh*t, so maybe this book can help.
