Book Review: Get Your Shit Together by Sarah Knight

Get Your Sh*t Together: How to Stop Worrying About What You Should Do So You Can Finish What You Need to Do and Start Doing What You Want to Do (A No F*cks Given Guide)Get Your Sh*t Together: How to Stop Worrying About What You Should Do So You Can Finish What You Need to Do and Start Doing What You Want to Do by Sarah Knight
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overview-
A self-help book for people that hate self-help books, get your shit together is a funny, realistic and at sometimes sad look at the ways you can move your life forward with a direct approach that helps you understand yourself and why you don’t have your shit together right now and practical ways you can get there.

Personal-
The UK version of Knight’s books have the prettiest covers so sometimes you walk past it not realising profanity in the title. But then you do and I had to buy it. I don’t have my shit together and for 10.99 price tag felt like a reasonable price to work out how to get it together.

The Good-

-Sarah Knight is a fucking funny woman who isn’t preaching enlightenment or promising you the world
-Get Your Shit Together offers practical advice in a direct and clear way for everything from health to wealth
-A couple of the points such as the power of negative thinking I’ve already incorporated into my life
-Knight’s personal anecdotal evidence of her own methods are genuinely inspiring
-The last half of the book was super helpful

The Bad-
-This book will probably appeal the most to American/UK women of middle-class backgrounds with enough disposable income to hire a professional as is often cited in the book
-Maybe because this was my first self-help book I didn’t feel like I related to some of the metaphors e.g. chipmunks

If you’re looking to get your shit together this is a great place to start/
