You Do You: How to Be Who You Are and Use What You've Got to Get What You Want Reviews

  • Laura Rash

    As always, Sarah Knight gives realistic advice with a grand sense of fucking humor! I always walk away from reading her books with my head held a little higher & my middle finger ready to extend to those who don’t like the choices I make to improve me!

    Thanks to Little Brown & Sarah for this early copy!

    I'm a big fan of Sarah Knight's books. Well, I'm actually just a big fan of Sarah Knight. I love her TED talk, her tweets, her writing style, her sense of humor, and her newsletters. So when I saw that she had a new book coming out, I could not WAIT to read it! And when Netgalley sent me a copy to review, I practically jumped out of my skin, I was so excited. HUGE GIGANTIC thank-you's to Netgalley and Little, Brown and Company for sending me a copy...and making this fan girl's day.

    I'll try to mop up my drool, stop swooning, and write a proper review now. 😁

    You Do You: How to Be Who You Are and Use What You've Got to Get What You Want is the third in Knight's No F*cks Given trilogy of fabulous self-help guides, following The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get You Sh*t Together.

    In this book, our favorite "anti-guru" details how to let your freak flag fly, and be yourself...eschewing the norm, and figuring out how to respond to the pressures of well-meaning (and some not so well-meaning) people who always have an idea of what you should be doing, wearing, how you should be behaving, etc.

    Although I would say that, out of all of her books, this one is maybe the least pithy? Or maybe it's the one that I personally have to do the most work with?? I felt like I needed to highlight more, and probably need to give this one a third reading, instead of just a second one, like I did with the other two. Now, that's not saying that it isn't as good...or that I didn't enjoy it as much as the other ones. I just felt like it maybe hit more of a nerve, or was a little more serious than the other ones??

    But this is still the same construction cone-wearing, swear word tossing lady...and this time she's really trying to get us to stop listening to "Judgy McJudgerson". I personally need to hear things like "There is nothing wrong with liking things the way you like them and asking for what you want." and "You don't get what you don't ask for." It doesn't matter how many times I read those things in books, I seem to need to hear them a few more times. And Knight's trademark sassy delivery seems to resonate so well with me, that for some reason her sayings stick.

    The book goes over Do's and Don'ts, Wills and Won'ts, Shoulds and Shouldn'ts, along with a whole lot of discussion on why it's not a bad thing to be labelled "difficult". I think one of the stories that stands out to me the most involves her discussing the issues she's had with anxiety. I have a very good friend who struggles with debilitating panic attacks. Anyway, Sarah Knight shares that she snuck a litter box and craft sand into her office at work, so that when she got overly stressed, she could take her shoes off and place her feet in the sand...close her eyes, and imagine she was on the beach. She used that tactic to help ease her anxiety, so she could get over it and get on with her day. Did people probably think she was weird because she had a litter box full of sand under her desk?? I'm sure they did. Did she give two craps about it?? Nope. That is something to ASPIRE TO.

    So, I highly recommend this book...as I do the other two in her No F*cks Given trilogy. I think they're amazing books that tell some terrific truths in a unique and saucy voice that speaks to me, like the girlfriend/sister you always wanted. Plus, she makes me laugh maniacally...at weird times, which tends to scare my dog and weird out my husband. Buy yourself a copy, and then buy a copy for your best friend. They'd make good Christmas gifts. 🎄

    FANTASTIC!. Constantly on a quest to being the most authentic and best version of myself. The author really gets it and is SUPER FUNNY!

  • Rebecca Viner

    I’ve just finished reading You Do You (Sarah’s third book) and LOVED it as much as the others. It was just the reminder I needed and was such a true reflection of today’s society and the reality of the judgements we face every day. This book even got me singing when I stopped at traffic lights - something I would usually feel embarrassed about doing!

    **I received a copy of this book from Little Brown and Company for review**

    Part “Return of the Jedi”, part “Return of the King”, this book nicely rounds out her “No Fucks Given” trilogy in a way that fans will truly appreciate.

    Once again, I finished Sarah Knight’s book wishing that I actually knew her in real life because she seems like my quintessential spirit animal/polar opposite in the best ways possible. She says and does things that I wish I had the courage to while also feeling like she would be the person who understands and respects me enough to cheer me on while I do me. She’s that friend who says what you wish you could, stands up for you when others use you as a doormat, and spurs you on to be the true you.

    The only thing that kept me from giving this a five star rating (which I seriously feel is a bit outlandish in every way anyway) is that some parts of the book, for those of us who are fans and have devoured her previous books, are a bit repetitive....but that’s a part of life when you have readers who are late to the game of awesomeness. So I take that for what it is. I also self-ISH-ly (see what I did there?!) wish that the parts that I loved (specifically her celebration of her mental health journey) were much longer. (a future book maybe?)

    All in all, Sarah never disappoints and she always makes me feel empowered to do and be more of who I am. Always and forever. Another book that I will return to when I need a friend to tell me I am fucking amazing and I shouldn’t give a fuck what anyone else thinks of me.

    Just brilliant.

    This book definitely deserves a 4 ⭐. If 2018 is your year of AUTHENTICITY AND SELF-ACCEPTANCE, this is the book to read. Without a doubt, Sarah Knight authentically shares the best life lessons of you being yourself. This "anti-guru" 😂 talks of various social norms that made most people live in their "cocon-shelf" instead of being the "butterfly" one is meant to be. And my oh my, Sarah goes against all norms of normal book writing. The foul words that were thrown out of the blues 😂

    Reason for a one-less 🌟 is because I couldnt understand some of her examples and the foul words were too much for me 🙈. That doesnt mean I dont appreciate her style. Quite inspired 💃. YOU DO YOU. There is no one like you.

    Eh this felt to me like a long winded stand-up comedy routine that continually referenced points made in her two previous books but in between all that she did make some insightful points about “letting your freak flag fly”

  • Kylie ward

    3.5 stars this book was a good read. I liked most of the advice in this book. Sometime I found the humour miss placed and I didn’t find some parts particularly helpful. I still would recommend this book to read.

    I typically like reading a motivational self-help book in January. I just found this soooo basic. There was absolutely nothing new that the title of the cover doesn’t cover. Very mehhhhhhh.
