“If you like your self-help without any BS, look to Gary John Bishop’s Unfu*k Yourself, [which] aims to help readers who feel f*cked up work through their challenges. You’ll get advice and tools to combat negative self-talk and feel more empowered.” (Bustle)

From the Back Cover
Wake up. You’re a fu*king miracle of being.
What’s standing in the way of you living your best life? Most people would reference things like relationships with other people, money, their job, or unfortunate circumstances. None of these explanations make any difference. Through decades of working with people as a personal development coach, Gary John Bishop has discovered that the barrier is one thing only: you. If you’re easily offended, stop reading now. This isn’t the book for you.
But if you’re looking for a book that gives you the power to find everything you ever wanted residing within you like a well of potential, waiting to be expressed, you’re in luck. Unfu*k Yourself is the handbook for the resigned and defeated, a manifesto for real life change and unleashing your own greatness.

Most of Bishop's advice is solid and makes a lot of sense. His concepts around creating the reality you want by changing your inner dialogue are helpful, and having that advice repeated throughout the book certainly helps to drive the point home. The friend who suggested this audiobook told me that she loves his Scottish accent, so that's a minor plus, too! Hearing the advice (which, basically, could be boiled down to "stop getting in your own way and just do the f-ing thing already!") in so many different ways is probably helpful for making the information accessible to as many people as possible.
What I don't like about this book:
Does Bishop really need to use being fat as a negative? This is not a minor detail–– he repeats the notion that being fat = being unhappy with your body and unable to be attractive SEVERAL times throughout this book. I pressed the "skip" button past these moments. It's outdated and offensive to use this stereotype as a way to illustrate points. Additionally, there is a lot of the same information and I imagine it could feel repetitive for some.
Finally, as with "You Are a Badass," the concept of the "tough love" self coach who's super cool because they curse? I mean... It's a bit tired. A little cheesy. Kind of feels like your dad throwing you a "hang ten" hand signal as he drives off in his PT Cruiser.
Overall, I absolutely would recommend this book to someone looking for good advice and something to help them reframe their mindset into something more productive. I'd also recommend remembering that thinking any type of body is less-than is actually a really great way to make you feel negatively about yourself. Give up the body hate, Bishop, and I'd be totally accepting of your Cool Dad brand.
