Fun to read and too the point.

Less of a step by step manual and more of an exposé of what life really is.

Sometimes the title of a book alone is enough to convince me to read it and this title definitely piqued my curiosity. Published by Hay House in November 2012, the first sentence on the back cover had me hooked.

While the title of the book definitely drew me in, the writing style was a little awkward and off-putting. Too much work trying to fit into a hipster-type lingo that could have been better spent just letting the message flow. The time and effort spent trying for witty and edgy didn't add to the writing, but detracted. That being said, the title was too compelling for me to dismiss the book easily, so I continued on past the first few somewhat stilted chapters.

And I'm glad I did - the message of this book is so perfect for those just beginning their journey of self-discovery. Parkin's take on the prisons that we build around ourselves is spot on, and he goes into each block - The Story, Fear, Seriousness, Self-Doubt, Lack of Conciousness, Perfectionism, Lack of Imagination, and Believing it's Real - and how those blocks hold us in place, is wonderful.

My favorite part of the book, would be the section on breaking through those walls. For example, in Breaking Through the Wall of Seriousness, Parkin explains HOW the walls came to be in the first place, and gives the reader some specific activities they can do to recognize the wall, and break through it.Parkin also provides the reader with Breakout Tools to put the principles to work.

As a read it was worth it, especially in my line of work. Would I recommend it? That depends. I enjoyed the message, however, while some books have a mass appeal, this is definitely going to be better suited if recommended to a chosen few.

John C. Parkin's book, F It Therapy: The Profane Way to Profound Happiness is written in a fun, conversational style, and provides a fresh twist on the "laws" of metaphysics in an earthy, no-nonsense kind of way.

One of the reasons I chose this book, which was sent to me free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes, was because the samples I read were laugh-out-loud funny. Did someone have the "nerve" to write a book, and then proceed to host retreats on the premise of a "forbidden" word? Apparently so! And thank goodness, because this book is just what the doctor ordered.

I particularly enjoyed the "Energize It" chapter found in part VI--"Walking Through Walls," which detailed pretty simple ways to practice certain forms of Qigong, which are so simple, I was astounded by how effective they actually are. The last section of the book, part VIII, titled, "Life on the Outside~Being Free," brings it all home by getting down to the brass tacks of our pre-conceived notions surrounding the concepts we spend a lot of time obsessing over: money and relationships.

This book was such a delightful and lighthearted read, that I highly recommend it for all of those who have gotten to the point where they're beginning to take their spiritual practices a little too seriously.

...the brilliant concept of "letting go" gets bogged down by running commentary. I don't blame the authors; the editor should have trimmed it down, because John and Gaia Parkin do a wonderful job interpreting Zen philosophy into a thoroughly Western way of living and being.

This book is a solid instruction manual (down and dirty and to the point), yet there is a great deal of rambling that could have been weeded out. After a while the chatter becomes quite annoying--particularly for non-British readers like myself who grow weary of translating the slang.

However, it is not my intention to steer prospective readers away! If you find yourself getting "itchy" as you read, simply skip ahead until you are free of that particularly cumbersome segment. You will then find nuggets of pure gold.

Format: Paperback
This is my review of F It Therapy by John C. Parkin. I acknowledge that I received this book free from Hay House Publishing to review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment.

While I have read many, many books that emphasize the importance of living in the moment, F It Therapy is unlike most books. The author, John C. Parkin, presents the information in a way that uses language which is down-to-earth and accessible. It is like speaking with a friend who "tells it like it is". This makes F It Therapy a rather refreshing to read due to its lack of pretension.

The most poignant point expressed by the author is the idea that keeping ourselves locked away in a prison may protect us, but it does not allow us to live life to the fullest. Whether or not this is the only life we get, it's worth being present in the here and now without any worry or concern for the past or future. It is easier said than done, of course, but F It Therapy is a resource to reach for when struggling.

Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed the slightly irreverent tone and the realistic quality of F It Therapy. I would highly recommend the book to anyone who, like myself, prefer authenticity from authors rather than sugar coating.
