You do you - book review

You do you is the latest from the anti self help guru Sarah Knight. Sarah also brought us The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get your Sh*t together as the first two books in this trilogy. The New York Times Magazine wrote this article about how the phrase You do you, captures the current generations narcisstic culture. But in this book Sarah Knight is all about empowering yourself. She talks through why we need to give ourselves permission to be difficult. Why its ok to say no to family (or friends). Why we should all let our freak flags fly and the pros of being a pessimist.

Basically this book talks you through how to learn to accept yourself. How to let go of Judgey Mcjudgerson. There are even some exercises to help you get there but all in all its fairly light reading. Although saying that having read it once I can already confirm I will read it again. And maybe again after that to make sure the messages are really sinking through.

All the lessons in the book are accompanied by Sarah’s entertaining stories as well as her general humour and a lot of swear words. So if you feel like you need a bit more work accepting yourself (who doesn’t) definitely check out the final book (and possibly the earlier books if you  in this trilogy from the anti guru. You can also check out her Ted talk based on The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck.
