Publisher's Summary

You know those days when you just can't even? When everything is haywire and everyone, including yourself, seems to be against you? Your to-do list is a mile long; your kid is sick, traffic sucks, and you just spilled coffee all over yourself as you were about to walk out the door? How do you cope? We guess you could say "f--k it" and go back to bed with a bottle of whiskey at 10 a.m., but check out these more sustainable and helpful alternatives by Dr. Faith first.This is the first book of its kind to break down coping skills by type of situation. Includes skills from CBT, DBT, ACT, positive psychology, mindfulness-based stress reduction, somatic experiencing, Jungian therapy, and more.

Faith in faith

Faith has written about mental health so well and in such a simple explanation, I love the illustrations that she use to explain all the phenomena how anxiety depression and other stuff works, reacts and what trigger them. I am thankful that all her books are included in membership.

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.

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.

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.

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:)

This was a short and to the point book with decent humor. I would recommend to anyone ok with a potty mouth and looking for some practical advice on how to and what coping is.

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?!

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”.

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.

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.

The language added to my anxiety

Turned off after 10 minutes, absolutely no need for the bad language. I actually quite enjoy swearing but only ever use it in the correct context. This was swearing for swearing sake.

Good tips, with too much swearing

Good recommendations and skills, presented in an accessible manner. but do we really need this much swearing? I'm not necessarily against swearing, but this really felt excessive, and drastically lowered my enjoyment of the book.

Not a bad bitesized book

First of all the negatives:

Too much use of profanity

I get it sometimes using fruity language can highlight a point and draw a reader/ listener/ audience in… but I felt it was a technique that was overused when more creative and descriptive language could have been used

The book is short so you’ll need to pay attention and be armed with a pen and paper with this one

The good points

Whilst many books of this genre can be absolutely loaded with padding, this book seems keen to get the practical application off its chest with very little jargon

Great if you’re willing to take on board the points and take action, well worth a spin if your curious

For me it would have been nice to hear more on the benefits of the practical application of the tools described and a few examples - but that’s just me

Worth a spin? - yes 👌

Even if you think you’ve heard it all before, if you’re still looking then you haven’t heard it enough to take action 😉

Too much swearing

A lot of 'f... ', 'b...ch' and 'sh..' words from the very beginning of the book. Read with an angry voice. Not convincing.

Academic swearfest

Nothing worse than a self help book that is full of casual swearing. They unnecessary to cover the topic. The writer is trying to sound young and hip by using poor language and colloquialism.

Garbage

The profanity sounded incredibly forced. A large portion of the start just sounded like a pitch, trying to sell you on the idea. The last chapter is pretty much the only part of the book with actual content and it reads like the stuff you'd get in the first couple links of Google. "40 ideas to ____". Not worth reading.
