She’s trying WAYYYYY too hard

I felt like I was listening to a high schooler or someone’s Aunt who was trying to be cool. I swear a lot, but this was just awkward to listen to I felt embarrassed for her the whole book. The last chapter was really all that was helpful.

Too Much Cursing!!!

Ideas are solid, but vulgar and filthy language detracted from the message. Such a shame. I could have gone all day without listening to such language.

I’m thoroughly impressed

How juvenile this book is. I don’t know where she learned to use profanity. It sounds so forced. It just seems like she’s trying too hard and this is no new information. Waste of time, this is a trash, sell-out, money grabbing excuse for a book. Just go listen to meditations by Marcus Aurelius instead.

Overused obscenities

i am married to a sailor so not a prude in any sense of the word, but the author WAY overused 'cuss words' in places they weren't even needed for the context. It became a contrived attempt to shock with foul language and the message was completely lost.

Great informative book. Really captured my attention. I shared it with several people who went out and purchased the hardcover version.

great book

I love this author's books, and this is a great book to touch base on coping skills. Of course, she couldn't go into great detail on each skill, but points you in directions to learn more about them. If you don't like cursing, don't listen, but, it adds character IMHO:)

Honest

There is a bit more cursing than you expect. That being said it helped me not to see it as such a drain to learn.

THE SWEARING WAS RIDICULOUS!

The endless and unnecessary swearing made it difficult to take this book seriously. I can't believe it was written by a professional therapist with a PhD. Where was her editor?!

Embarrassing

Unnecessarily profane! Why did she think this would be effective? It’s downright offensive and unprofessional. In her words “a hot mess of a book”.

Every other word starts with F^^

Over exaggerates with too much cursing. First two words of book is f* S*! Difficult to follow with all the unnecessary cursing. Would think after so many comment this she would update books to at least reduce the f’g swearing. Bs F* s* and f’g this and that. Do gd this or That. And everything referred to f’g s**t Didn’t get past 10 mins.

Profanity is not profundity.

Not for me I'm afraid. I found the author's constant coarseness and flippancy when dealing with subject matter that cries out for serious treatment, jarring and irritating. I know she's probably trying to make the subject matter "accessible", but to me, the joke fell flat. Especially when such flippancy is combined with aching politically-correctness. It's only fair to say that there is good information on mental techniques in here, but each one is passed over briefly and without explanation in favor of another outburst of cussing. I'm sure some people will get a lot out of this, and good on them. But I'm going elsewhere.
