I remember downloading this book awhile ago onto my Audible account and then promptly forgetting about it. I love audiobooks, but it’s not always easy for me to get into them. I tend to want the narrator to read quicker than they are. And then I get discouraged by how much time is still left for the book.
Scrolling through my Audible account, I actually clicked on a different book by Gary John Bishop. Within the first couple minutes, he mentioned “as I talked about in Unfu*k Yourself” (or something along those lines), I knew I needed to stop and listen to Unfu*k Yourself. And I am definitely glad I did.
At 3.5 hours, this is a quick book to listen to. Well, it is when your normal commute is approximately 45min each way and most of your job involves driving anyways.
I absolutely loved this book. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. I love the no holds barred approach that Bishop takes with this book. He calls it like it is but does it in a way that does not get you offended. Instead of making excuses for why your life is the way it is, you find yourself agreeing with him and wanting to make the necessary changes. But like he says, wanting to make the changes doesn’t mean anything if you don’t actually make the changes to have a happier and better life.
If anyone needs a kick in the pants, a word of encouragement, or some extra motivation about your life, this is the book for you.
However, if you are super easily offended, especially by cursing, move along.
Audiobook is the way to go for this book. Bishop narrates it himself and he does an incredible job.
