    As with The Life-changing Magic of Not Giving A Fuck, Sarah Knight manages to convey an important message with wit & personality like no other! With both of these books it's about getting control of your life. It's in your hands but you can start small & learn to control the steam roller of everyday life before it crushes you. With these helpful tips that had me snort laughing out loud you get a better view of the big picture. Flow charts don't hurt either.

    Thanks to Sarah & Little B

    Review to come closer to pub date.

    Quick thoughts:

    Last year, Sarah Knight helped me get my F's in line and now she's trying to get my sh*t together!

    With equal amounts of tips and humor, I feel good that this year can be a great year!!

    Knight is an acquired taste, but I generally enjoyed

    . Her self help books are full of useful tips, profanity, and irreverent humor so don't pick this title up if you're easily offended. If you know someone who seriously needs to get their you-know-what together, this could be the title you've been waiting for!

    Knight keeps it real from the first page:

    Knight keeps it real from the first page:

    loc 31, ebook. And so on, and so forth.

    I've also enjoyed

    and I felt as if Knight shared more of herself in this offering than that one. We learn that she had/has anxiety attacks and had to pull her life together because it was falling apart. Not many self help authors display their humanity and imperfections like that and I really appreciated her honesty. Plus, readers get to reap the benefits of her hard won wisdom and we know it works because she got her stuff together enough to write the book.

    I really like Knight's various life philosophies, which she sprinkles throughout. Here's one of my favorites:

    loc 502, ebook. Be the best you that you can be and forget about the rest. Good advice.

    Knight also gives a 'nod' to Marie Kondo's internationally best selling title and Knight's thoughts about it may appeal to more readers than the original material:

    loc 2547, ebook. Sound familiar to anyone?

    Among the many life issues that Knight tackles, her thoughts on perfectionism struck particularly close to home for me:

    loc 3049, ebook.

    Recommended for people who need self help but don't like reading self help, probably 18+ because of the language. Sarah Knight will give you some life changing tips and along the way, you may learn some unique new uses for the word: sh*t. Some further reading:

    Every once in a while, in the midst of all my fiction reading, I pick up a self-improvement book. There's often a point or two of interest in the book, even if much of the advice is repetitive and obvious. But, someone has to point out the highlights. Sarah Knight uses her own life as in example in Get Your Sh*t Together.

    Knight was in a high-pressure job in New York City, one she had planned for her career. And, after fifteen years, she realized it wasn't what she wanted to do, or where she want

    Every once in a while, in the midst of all my fiction reading, I pick up a self-improvement book. There's often a point or two of interest in the book, even if much of the advice is repetitive and obvious. But, someone has to point out the highlights. Sarah Knight uses her own life as in example in Get Your Sh*t Together.

    Knight was in a high-pressure job in New York City, one she had planned for her career. And, after fifteen years, she realized it wasn't what she wanted to do, or where she wanted to be. How do you change your life? You do in in small steps. "Because big life changes are made in small, manageable chunks." Knight says that's how to save money, change jobs, leave a relationship, lose weight, clean up your email. Get a calendar, and do it in small chunks at a time.

    The book supplies "motivational tips and tricks for time management". It's irreverent. In fact, Knight, the author of The Life-changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, uses both words quite often in her book. And, it's up-to-date with quite a number of pop culture references. A couple years from now, I don't know that some of the anecdotes about Antiques Roadshow, Beyonce, Charlie Sheen, or the puppies in the Sarah McLachlan SPCA commercial will be as relevant.

    Knight's book really encourages people to make life changes to be happy, pointing out small steps to get readers on their way. In fact, she summarizes the purpose for Get Your Sh*t Together. She wants to "Help people make changes in their lives using simple advice, a bunch of expletives, and the occasional flowchart." Or, as I said earlier, make changes in "small manageable chunks".

    This was witty and entertaining, but it ran a little long, especially when Knight ended up saying the same thing for every circumstance. I get it. Keys, phone, wallet. I mean, it's clearly in my brain now, so she was definitely successful at teaching me something.

    Enjoyed this so much I might buy her first one, even though, like this, it's not available for Kindle in New Zealand.

    Very funny, direct and useful! Read this book in 3 hours on a plane journey and have started implementing her ideas already.
