Book reviews

"Get Your Sh*t Together: How to stop worrying about what you should do so you can finish what you need to do and start doing what you want to do" (Sarah Knight, 2016)

I bought this one in a whim after seeing it in the airport bookshop. I thought it sounded funny, and I needed some lightweight reading, so it was a done deal.

If you're halfway to have your shit together, this book will sound "common sensey" to you, and give you additional ideas-there are some nice ones! Or at least, confirm that you're in the good track.

If you're not, this will be a shocking revelation. I think I'm more in the above camp, so I was just really amused by the book and enjoyed reading it, and took note of the interesting additional tips she provides.

Basically, make lots of lists. Maximise using your phone as a planning device rather than as a source of entertainment. Prioritise, prioritise, prioritise. Time is a finite resource, same as fucks given 😆

Many reviews in Amazon seem deeply offended by the "amount of profanity" in the book. I found it more like a stylistic choice and after a while it didn't even impress me anymore. Maybe I'm not as sensitive to the word as a native speaker. But be aware, there's a lot of swearing on this book.
