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.

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.

Imposible listen

The cussing and ridiculous language makes it impossible for me to listen. I earnestly tried but it all sounded so bad. Bad advice and bad language.

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”.

Empowering!

I LOVE Dr. Harpers teachings! She's so well-rounded. She speaks the language of life on so many levels. This is some good stuff on checking in with ourselves, and being accountable to ourselves. My favorite shakesperian quote, "to thine ownself be true."

Super useful quick read

LOVED IT! I have already used a lot of these tools, but had never understood the why behind them and how is it supposed to help. I am very analytical person so I loved the synopsis and origin of how important coping skills are compared to the lack of these skills. I can tell you these coping skills work, I am now 3.5 years sober and I couldn't tell you how many times these have saved my life. Must read.

Helpful, Yes, But Incessant Swearing Detracts

The ridiculous amount of swearing in this book becomes more prominent than, and definitely detracts from, the message. If the author thinks that constantly swearing (apparently her trademark?) is emphasizing her message, it isn't. It constantly interferes with her message. In the end, it's the swearing that is remembered.

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.
