    3.5 Stars Should I read into the fact my mom gifted me with this book? Gary John Bishop embraces his Scottish decent in his no nonsense, get your shit together diatribe in the astutely titled self help book UnF*ck Yourself. The book is broken into seven personal assertions th...

    Despite an eye-catching title and the promise of edgy, life-changing advice, this little self-help book really doesn't deliver. Recycled ideas we've heard before, like imagine the life you want the set steps to get there, or lower your expectations to live happily in the moment aren't ...

    Quite liked this. Straight talking, no bullshit, easy language, and a fast read. Bishop details seven "personal assertions" to live your life by: I am willing I am wired to win I got this I embrace uncertainty I am not my thoughts: I am what I do I am relentless I expect nothi...

    Gary's book is short and simple. If you are looking for a change in your life, you will love it! Check my animated review here: >> bit.ly/UnfkYourself << ...

    I listened to this on Audible, where Gary John Bishop's Scottish accent adds priceless enthusiasm and flavor to the material. The material for that matter, is nothing new, just basic self-empowerment tenants. But something about having basic tenants spoken to you in an aggressive Sc...

    I quite like this book. It's a different approach and a kick in the butt to get you out of a rut. One of the most important bits to take away is that we are not our thoughts but we are what we do. Bishop insists that we need to act, even if we don't feel like it. When we choose not to ...

    Not the worst self-help book I?ve read, but not the most memorable either. I do have to say though that Gary John Bishop was very motivating ? I liked the 7 personal assertions he broke each chapter down by: 1. I am willing 2. I am wired to win 3. I got this 4. I embrace unc...

    I listened to this in audiobook form. I didn?t finish it because I knew most of the contents already. The information provided, and the way the narrator explains the text, is just right! I like the ?REAL? approach that the author takes. This is probably the most honest, down-to-e...

    As a psychologist I often like to read self-help books my clients might read or my students might encounter. Sometimes I use them to drive home points or offer them as resources. I like to see what is out there. This book is actually pretty good at illustrating basic Cognitive Behavior...

    I think Bishop is going for the direct, "tough love" type approach with this book, which presumes that the reader is perpetually miserable, lazy, fat, and unsatisfied. These assumptions restrict his meandering diatribe to exactly that which he claims to loathe--a basic mantra-driven se...

    Versión audiolibro: Como un texto introductivo no está mal, pero todas las ideas son muy básicas y algo obvias no aporta ningún método para aplicarlas, así que al final es más una especie de charla para hacer reaccionar al lector en plan de ?venga espabila? y para refrescar ...

    **EDIT** I'm bumping this down from two stars to one, because a paragraph that infuriated me just popped back into my head: toward the end, the author, Gary John Bishop, actually says that medication isn't helpful and is just a crutch, and that if you're depressed then you need to just...

    Read for Review (Edelweiss) Overall Rating: 3.75 Quick Thoughts: While there wasn't anything new in this book, I did like the presentation. This was about self-talk. How to do it, what we are doing wrong, and how you get in your own way. He reminds you to talk in present tense (fut...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help kind of books, and most of the time also not a fan of books where the author seems to be shouting at the readers. This book really annoyed me at the beginning, but then it got to me. And I think that was something that I needed a reminder of lately. T...

    Read it with book club. It was a basic self-help book. The message was straightforward and did not have any deep or meaningful insights. While it was warm and fuzzy it did not provide any life or mind altering ideas that were impactful. I was not excited to finish it at all. ...

    It's hard to leave a negative review of this book without falling into one of the many traps we find ourselves falling into as human beings or, as the author puts it, the ways we fu*k ourselves. Fortunately, I don't have to. As a tool for turning one's life around, it could possibly be...

    Bishop offers nothing new in this book. I'd heard all of it before. Maybe it's the fact that mine was the audio book and he's Scottish. Maybe it's the title. Maybe it's his use of expletives within the book. Not sure. But it gave me just the kick in the groin I needed to put common...

    There is nothing here that is new, but it?s laid out in a very clear way and with an engaging, no nonsense style. If you?ve ever done yoga or meditation, you will probably already know that everyone has negative thoughts and those thoughts are meaningless. Action in spite of negati...

    Anyone who follows my reviews (all three of you) know that I have a weak spot for dumb self-help books and I have to read one like every month. This one was a good one. It's short, helpful, and a nice reminder to get your expectations in check. Nothing revelatory here, but it's an easy...

    It was okay... Super short read... Not much I'm really taking away from it, but I know of other people who would benefit from it. I mean yea he makes good valid points and everything but they're primitive in the self development world. Also he's pretty repetitive saying the same things...

    Not as "offensive" as it tries to make itself out to be. Some good advice but there's a lot of fluff. A lot of the book could be cut and the points would still make sense. Some takeaways I appreciated: - You could change your life overnight if you gave up the notion that other peop...

    This was a pretty good book designed to teach how to get out of the particular ruts we put ourselves in by telling ourselves we're not good enough or our problems are too large, etc. Practical for sure, and good to put this on paper and read it sometimes. I think this was a self-pu...

    Gary's book is short and simple. If you are looking for a change in your life, you will love it! Check my animated review here: >> bit.ly/UnfkYourself << ...

    I listened to this on Audible, where Gary John Bishop's Scottish accent adds priceless enthusiasm and flavor to the material. The material for that matter, is nothing new, just basic self-empowerment tenants. But something about having basic tenants spoken to you in an aggressive Sc...

    I quite like this book. It's a different approach and a kick in the butt to get you out of a rut. One of the most important bits to take away is that we are not our thoughts but we are what we do. Bishop insists that we need to act, even if we don't feel like it. When we choose not to ...

    Not the worst self-help book I?ve read, but not the most memorable either. I do have to say though that Gary John Bishop was very motivating ? I liked the 7 personal assertions he broke each chapter down by: 1. I am willing 2. I am wired to win 3. I got this 4. I embrace unc...

    I listened to this in audiobook form. I didn?t finish it because I knew most of the contents already. The information provided, and the way the narrator explains the text, is just right! I like the ?REAL? approach that the author takes. This is probably the most honest, down-to-e...

    As a psychologist I often like to read self-help books my clients might read or my students might encounter. Sometimes I use them to drive home points or offer them as resources. I like to see what is out there. This book is actually pretty good at illustrating basic Cognitive Behavior...

    I think Bishop is going for the direct, "tough love" type approach with this book, which presumes that the reader is perpetually miserable, lazy, fat, and unsatisfied. These assumptions restrict his meandering diatribe to exactly that which he claims to loathe--a basic mantra-driven se...

    Versión audiolibro: Como un texto introductivo no está mal, pero todas las ideas son muy básicas y algo obvias no aporta ningún método para aplicarlas, así que al final es más una especie de charla para hacer reaccionar al lector en plan de ?venga espabila? y para refrescar ...

    **EDIT** I'm bumping this down from two stars to one, because a paragraph that infuriated me just popped back into my head: toward the end, the author, Gary John Bishop, actually says that medication isn't helpful and is just a crutch, and that if you're depressed then you need to just...

    Read for Review (Edelweiss) Overall Rating: 3.75 Quick Thoughts: While there wasn't anything new in this book, I did like the presentation. This was about self-talk. How to do it, what we are doing wrong, and how you get in your own way. He reminds you to talk in present tense (fut...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help kind of books, and most of the time also not a fan of books where the author seems to be shouting at the readers. This book really annoyed me at the beginning, but then it got to me. And I think that was something that I needed a reminder of lately. T...

    Read it with book club. It was a basic self-help book. The message was straightforward and did not have any deep or meaningful insights. While it was warm and fuzzy it did not provide any life or mind altering ideas that were impactful. I was not excited to finish it at all. ...

    It's hard to leave a negative review of this book without falling into one of the many traps we find ourselves falling into as human beings or, as the author puts it, the ways we fu*k ourselves. Fortunately, I don't have to. As a tool for turning one's life around, it could possibly be...

    Bishop offers nothing new in this book. I'd heard all of it before. Maybe it's the fact that mine was the audio book and he's Scottish. Maybe it's the title. Maybe it's his use of expletives within the book. Not sure. But it gave me just the kick in the groin I needed to put common...

    There is nothing here that is new, but it?s laid out in a very clear way and with an engaging, no nonsense style. If you?ve ever done yoga or meditation, you will probably already know that everyone has negative thoughts and those thoughts are meaningless. Action in spite of negati...

    Anyone who follows my reviews (all three of you) know that I have a weak spot for dumb self-help books and I have to read one like every month. This one was a good one. It's short, helpful, and a nice reminder to get your expectations in check. Nothing revelatory here, but it's an easy...

    The perfect book at the perfect time! ...

    It was okay... Super short read... Not much I'm really taking away from it, but I know of other people who would benefit from it. I mean yea he makes good valid points and everything but they're primitive in the self development world. Also he's pretty repetitive saying the same things...

    Not as "offensive" as it tries to make itself out to be. Some good advice but there's a lot of fluff. A lot of the book could be cut and the points would still make sense. Some takeaways I appreciated: - You could change your life overnight if you gave up the notion that other peop...

    This was a pretty good book designed to teach how to get out of the particular ruts we put ourselves in by telling ourselves we're not good enough or our problems are too large, etc. Practical for sure, and good to put this on paper and read it sometimes. I think this was a self-pu...

    You've heard all these ideas before in different forms. That is possibly true for the majority of the books that promise to improve your life. However, from time to time there is a book that strikes exactly the right tone, finds exactly the right words for you, so it has a real impact ...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help books, simply because I've got a pretty good life going that I'm happy about, but more importantly I don't believe there is a book that will change your life for the better, it's actually entirely up to you. But I've recently read "Vertical Mind" (ran...

    If you?re not willing to take the actions to change your situation?in other words, if you?re willing to put up with your situation?then whether you like it or not, that is the life you have chosen. This book is the kick in the ass you need to help you re-evaluate the life...

    2.5 stars. With the exception of some of the information being inspirational and thoughtful, especially being read by the author who has a kickass Scottish accent, much of what was discussed was repetitive mantras with little to no actual exercises, although this would be a quick guide...

    A fun short read with easy points to follow which can improve your personal life view (sense of self-worth). This was a perfect example of how simplicity, clarity, and concise writing provide the best form of communications. The author gets to the point: To improve your life, you need ...

    Not the worst self-help book I?ve read, but not the most memorable either. I do have to say though that Gary John Bishop was very motivating ? I liked the 7 personal assertions he broke each chapter down by: 1. I am willing 2. I am wired to win 3. I got this 4. I embrace unc...

    I listened to this in audiobook form. I didn?t finish it because I knew most of the contents already. The information provided, and the way the narrator explains the text, is just right! I like the ?REAL? approach that the author takes. This is probably the most honest, down-to-e...

    As a psychologist I often like to read self-help books my clients might read or my students might encounter. Sometimes I use them to drive home points or offer them as resources. I like to see what is out there. This book is actually pretty good at illustrating basic Cognitive Behavior...

    I think Bishop is going for the direct, "tough love" type approach with this book, which presumes that the reader is perpetually miserable, lazy, fat, and unsatisfied. These assumptions restrict his meandering diatribe to exactly that which he claims to loathe--a basic mantra-driven se...

    Versión audiolibro: Como un texto introductivo no está mal, pero todas las ideas son muy básicas y algo obvias no aporta ningún método para aplicarlas, así que al final es más una especie de charla para hacer reaccionar al lector en plan de ?venga espabila? y para refrescar ...

    **EDIT** I'm bumping this down from two stars to one, because a paragraph that infuriated me just popped back into my head: toward the end, the author, Gary John Bishop, actually says that medication isn't helpful and is just a crutch, and that if you're depressed then you need to just...

    Read for Review (Edelweiss) Overall Rating: 3.75 Quick Thoughts: While there wasn't anything new in this book, I did like the presentation. This was about self-talk. How to do it, what we are doing wrong, and how you get in your own way. He reminds you to talk in present tense (fut...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help kind of books, and most of the time also not a fan of books where the author seems to be shouting at the readers. This book really annoyed me at the beginning, but then it got to me. And I think that was something that I needed a reminder of lately. T...

    It's hard to leave a negative review of this book without falling into one of the many traps we find ourselves falling into as human beings or, as the author puts it, the ways we fu*k ourselves. Fortunately, I don't have to. As a tool for turning one's life around, it could possibly be...

    Bishop offers nothing new in this book. I'd heard all of it before. Maybe it's the fact that mine was the audio book and he's Scottish. Maybe it's the title. Maybe it's his use of expletives within the book. Not sure. But it gave me just the kick in the groin I needed to put common...

    Anyone who follows my reviews (all three of you) know that I have a weak spot for dumb self-help books and I have to read one like every month. This one was a good one. It's short, helpful, and a nice reminder to get your expectations in check. Nothing revelatory here, but it's an easy...

    Not as "offensive" as it tries to make itself out to be. Some good advice but there's a lot of fluff. A lot of the book could be cut and the points would still make sense. Some takeaways I appreciated: - You could change your life overnight if you gave up the notion that other peop...

    This was a pretty good book designed to teach how to get out of the particular ruts we put ourselves in by telling ourselves we're not good enough or our problems are too large, etc. Practical for sure, and good to put this on paper and read it sometimes. I think this was a self-pu...

    You've heard all these ideas before in different forms. That is possibly true for the majority of the books that promise to improve your life. However, from time to time there is a book that strikes exactly the right tone, finds exactly the right words for you, so it has a real impact ...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help books, simply because I've got a pretty good life going that I'm happy about, but more importantly I don't believe there is a book that will change your life for the better, it's actually entirely up to you. But I've recently read "Vertical Mind" (ran...

    If you?re not willing to take the actions to change your situation?in other words, if you?re willing to put up with your situation?then whether you like it or not, that is the life you have chosen. This book is the kick in the ass you need to help you re-evaluate the life...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help books, simply because I've got a pretty good life going that I'm happy about, but more importantly I don't believe there is a book that will change your life for the better, it's actually entirely up to you. But I've recently read "Vertical Mind" (ran...

    I quite like this book. It's a different approach and a kick in the butt to get you out of a rut. One of the most important bits to take away is that we are not our thoughts but we are what we do. Bishop insists that we need to act, even if we don't feel like it. When we choose not to ...

    Not the worst self-help book I?ve read, but not the most memorable either. I do have to say though that Gary John Bishop was very motivating ? I liked the 7 personal assertions he broke each chapter down by: 1. I am willing 2. I am wired to win 3. I got this 4. I embrace unc...

    I listened to this in audiobook form. I didn?t finish it because I knew most of the contents already. The information provided, and the way the narrator explains the text, is just right! I like the ?REAL? approach that the author takes. This is probably the most honest, down-to-e...

    Versión audiolibro: Como un texto introductivo no está mal, pero todas las ideas son muy básicas y algo obvias no aporta ningún método para aplicarlas, así que al final es más una especie de charla para hacer reaccionar al lector en plan de ?venga espabila? y para refrescar ...

    **EDIT** I'm bumping this down from two stars to one, because a paragraph that infuriated me just popped back into my head: toward the end, the author, Gary John Bishop, actually says that medication isn't helpful and is just a crutch, and that if you're depressed then you need to just...

    Read for Review (Edelweiss) Overall Rating: 3.75 Quick Thoughts: While there wasn't anything new in this book, I did like the presentation. This was about self-talk. How to do it, what we are doing wrong, and how you get in your own way. He reminds you to talk in present tense (fut...

    I'm not a huge fan of self help kind of books, and most of the time also not a fan of books where the author seems to be shouting at the readers. This book really annoyed me at the beginning, but then it got to me. And I think that was something that I needed a reminder of lately. T...

    Read it with book club. It was a basic self-help book. The message was straightforward and did not have any deep or meaningful insights. While it was warm and fuzzy it did not provide any life or mind altering ideas that were impactful. I was not excited to finish it at all. ...

    It's hard to leave a negative review of this book without falling into one of the many traps we find ourselves falling into as human beings or, as the author puts it, the ways we fu*k ourselves. Fortunately, I don't have to. As a tool for turning one's life around, it could possibly be...

    Bishop offers nothing new in this book. I'd heard all of it before. Maybe it's the fact that mine was the audio book and he's Scottish. Maybe it's the title. Maybe it's his use of expletives within the book. Not sure. But it gave me just the kick in the groin I needed to put common...

    There is nothing here that is new, but it?s laid out in a very clear way and with an engaging, no nonsense style. If you?ve ever done yoga or meditation, you will probably already know that everyone has negative thoughts and those thoughts are meaningless. Action in spite of negati...

    Anyone who follows my reviews (all three of you) know that I have a weak spot for dumb self-help books and I have to read one like every month. This one was a good one. It's short, helpful, and a nice reminder to get your expectations in check. Nothing revelatory here, but it's an easy...

    Not as "offensive" as it tries to make itself out to be. Some good advice but there's a lot of fluff. A lot of the book could be cut and the points would still make sense. Some takeaways I appreciated: - You could change your life overnight if you gave up the notion that other peop...
