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!

    Comments about The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**K:

    This book was recommended to me at the perfect time in my life. I have since thrust it under the noses of many of my friends when asked why I suddenly look so happy and carefree. The author has a 'take no prisoners' approach to explaining her method, and there is very little wasted prose in the book. The text is extremely easy to read, has lists, scripts and flow charts for different types of learners, places to enter your own thoughts and is liberally scattered with humour. My life is definitely changing for the better now that I have a fully functional F budget.

        Comments about The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**K:

        I got this for a flight and I really like this book. It makes some good points about some of the things in our life that we really need to care less about. It is lighthearted and sure it't not the best written book in the world but it is still worth a read.

          Comments about The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**K:

          I couldn't even finish it. I was bored out of my mind before I'd even finished the second chapter. I found the information in it to be a little repetitive, un-humorous and not really helpful. What she talked about I consider common knowledge and it's something I already do in my life everyday. I was hoping for a little more insight.

          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 * Highly amusing * Mslexia * Perfect for any woman who's finding the festive season a bit too much * The Sun * 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 * There are some really genius life lessons to be learnt, such as ditching "bikini body" guilt and embracing the NotSorry Method. * Elle Australia * Hilarious and liberating * Fashion Me Now * The self-help equivalent of a Weird Al parody song. (That's a compliment.) -- Molly Young * The New York Times Book Review * This year's must-read [self-help] title -- Katie Glass * The Sun * 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 Self-help with an edge * Vogue * [A] mix of Oprah Winfrey-style mantras and Amy Schumer-esque obscenities * Elle * Unashamedly funny, honest and practical book . . . sounds pretty darn tempting to us . . . And it makes you laugh. Bring it on! * Heat * 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 * Light relief . . . thoroughly modern self-help book * Independent on Sunday * This kind-of-genius parody of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up might actually change your life * Women's Health * My new saviour . . . hilarious * Psychologies * 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 * 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 * 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 * Genius * Cosmopolitan * I love Knight's book before I even start reading . . . the book works a charm * Sunday Times Magazine * 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 * Every woman's handbook * Evening Standard * The best book I have read recently . . . Absolutely blinding. Read it. Do it -- Liz Jones * Mail on Sunday * This book will help you redefine what really matters * Stylist *
