How to stop spending time you don't have with people you don't like doing things you don't want to do.

A brilliant, hilarious homage to The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, showing how to shed your mental clutter for good.

Aimed at overachieving but dissatisfied people everywhere. Sarah's inspirational two-step "NotSorry" program shows how unleashing the power of not giving a fuck will help you shed unwanted guilt and obligations to redirect time, energy, and enthusiasm to your true priorities.

Sarah reveals why giving a fuck about what other people think is your worst enemy-and how to stop doing it; how to sort your fucks into four essential categories; simple criteria for whether or not you should give a fuck (i.e. "Does this affect anyone other than me?"); and the two keys to successfully not giving a fuck without also being an asshole.

So, get rid of the mental clutter, ditch the perfectionism and create the life you want - for good!

About the Author

Sarah Knight is the author of two humorous self-help books: Get Your Sh*t Together and The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k, which was an international bestseller and has been translated into fifteen languages and counting. Her work has also appeared in Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Refinery29, Book Riot, Medium, and elsewhere, though her most widely-circulated piece to date is a Should I Give a Fuck? flow chart. After quitting her corporate job and leaving New York in early 2016 to start a freelance career, she now resides in the Dominican Republic with her husband and a shitload of lizards.


What a read!


I'm half way through and hooked! If you're not up for straight laced talking please avoid. Can't wait to get through the next half.

If you don't think tidying is important then you are wrong


Look. It's about how we live in our spaces and how to make it tidy. It's not rocket science but it is profound. It taught me that the scale of my tidying has always been wrong. This book tells you to uproot your entire domestic world and destroy without mercy all items that don't please you. In a polite and very Japanese way it encourages you to exacting standards and merciless culling of your domestic space. It then demands that you develop some gratitude for the things you still own and take care of them by giving them a space to live in your home. Everything. I mmean every little thing. Needs a space. It's not literature but we. Oils all learn from it. If you are a bit out of control then this will give you a new way of living. It's about tidying.

This book will help you redefine what really matters * Stylist *
The best book I have read recently . . . Absolutely blinding. Read it. Do it -- Liz Jones * Mail on Sunday *
Every woman's handbook * Evening Standard *
Life-affirming . . . The key practice she advocates is devising for yourself a "f**k budget" . . . It's a beautiful way of streamlining your psyche -- Lucy Mangan * Guardian *

I love Knight's book before I even start reading . . . the book works a charm

* Sunday Times Magazine *
Genius * Cosmopolitan *
Her book wooed me with this line: "Hot yoga? Don't give a downard f***!" She has some frank advice . . . Bite me off a piece of that, I think * Style, Sunday Times *
Yes, it's a parody of a cult book . . . but it's something more, too. Knight acknowledges the overwhelmingness of the modern world in a different way to many before her * Guardian *
Changed my life. To this day, I think about how it schooled me in the fine art of giving less f*cks about people (and party invites) who don't really matter to me, and saving my precious time and energy for those who do. I wasn't alone - the book became an international bestseller * Vogue *
My new saviour . . . hilarious * Psychologies *
This kind-of-genius parody of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up might actually change your life * Women's Health *
Light relief . . . thoroughly modern self-help book * Independent on Sunday *
After reading this book cover-to-cover and compiling a list of ten things I don't give a f*** about (Kanye West and exfoliation figured pretty highly), I realise how wonderfully liberating it is to stop apologising for things I'm not sorry about * Red *
Unashamedly funny, honest and practical book . . . sounds pretty darn tempting to us . . . And it makes you laugh. Bring it on! * Heat *
[A] mix of Oprah Winfrey-style mantras and Amy Schumer-esque obscenities * Elle *
Self-help with an edge * Vogue *
A funny take on that very popular cleaning up book, but so much more. It's about taking care of yourself and not giving a f*ck what people think of your choices (but without being an a**hole). This book is kicking ass all over bestseller lists. Buy it. You won't be disappointed -- Jen Kirkman
This year's must-read [self-help] title -- Katie Glass * The Sun *
The self-help equivalent of a Weird Al parody song. (That's a compliment.) -- Molly Young * The New York Times Book Review *
Hilarious and liberating * Fashion Me Now *
There are some really genius life lessons to be learnt, such as ditching "bikini body" guilt and embracing the NotSorry Method. * Elle Australia *
The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k stands out from the self-help pack not only for its frank language and sense of humour, but also because it is about less in a culture of more. -- Nicole Elphick * Daily Life *
Perfect for any woman who's finding the festive season a bit too much * The Sun *
Highly amusing * Mslexia *
The missing life manual that everyone should get at birth. It should be required reading in school . . . Sarah Knight is like a modern-day Mary Poppins for mental clutter . . . And her spoonful of sugar is her wicked sense of humour. Every household needs her . . . or at least a copy of her book . . . Outstanding * How to GYST *
For practical and sweary self-help advice with no bloody lectures, Sarah Knight is the bollocks -- Brigid Moss * The Pool *
