Really? There's a whole book now to teach you about the principle by which I've already been living my entire life? Not giving a f*ck. I know, author Sarah Knight knows, and soon everyone else who reads The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck: How to Stop Spending Time You Don't Have with People You Don't Like Doing Things You Don't Want to Do will know how much more joyous your day-to-days and year-to-years become when you eliminate all tendencies to help or do things for others when it doesn't suit you.
Id est, pretty much all the time.
The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck imparts a 2-step NotSorry Method that will empower you to engage in what you want to do, ignore what you don't, say "no," like, 85% of time, and suffer none of the guilt, fear, and shame that typically accompany such brash moves. Not giving a f*ck seems like a logical solution to feeling overstressed and overbooked, right? A good way to get out of doing favors and attending events you'd rather skip? The problem is, not giving a f*ck is easier said than done.
Knight believes she knows how to put saying and doing on the same plane. Her guide (well, guide / parody) aims to remove all f*ck givings from situations ranging from family drama and having a "bikini body" to co-workers' opinions. And pets. And children. Oh boy, I hope especially their children.
The result is that you'll have more time and energy to spend on the things in life that really matter. Like manipulating other people into doing stuff for and with, and generally showing that they give a f*ck about you.
