Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop is a straightforward book that provides the reader with tools as well as advice required to demolish the slag weighing him or her down, and turn into a truly unfu*ked version of themselves. The straightforward advice offered by the author emphasizes the need for an individual to get tough on themselves, and avoid repeating the same destructive behaviors over and over. According to the author, it is neither the people that are standing on your way nor your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive; instead, it is yourself and the negative self-talk that you keep telling yourself. Unfu*k Yourself is broken up into nine chapters, seven of which focus on a specific set of personal assertions. The first chapter of the book is an introductory chapter which serves as a primer on what the reader should expect in the book. The final chapter offers some suggestions on the manner in which one can implement these assertions in their life. Every one of the other seven chapters focuses on a single assertion, emphasizing interesting as well as thought-provoking arguments in favor of the said assertion. Numerous self-help and self-development articles and books concentrate on changing your thought patterns to change actions. In numerous ways, however, Unfu*k Yourself advocates taking the opposite. The tagline line in the book’s front cover that states, “Get out of Your Head and Into Your Life” says it all. The overall theme of the book, therefore, is turning one’s actions into thoughts, contrary to the usual actions into thoughts – Bishop’s teachings are centered on less thinking, more doing.
