You Do You 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’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!

  • Angie Dokos

    Not only good advice, but hilarious. I don’t agree with everything she says, and some people will hate all the cussing, but it was enjoyable to me. Very entertaining, and encouraging.

    I did enjoy this book but essentially it is full of very bad advice that I want to take, especially around Christmas and baby shower season. Haha! I could write this exact same book myself if I too could pack up my entire life and move to the Dominican Republic. Pretty easy to get out of all the social commitments and pressures when you are that far away from everyone. No sooner had I finished a chapter on how to be more selfish did I read a chapter on how important it is not to be selfish in th

    I did enjoy this book but essentially it is full of very bad advice that I want to take, especially around Christmas and baby shower season. Haha! I could write this exact same book myself if I too could pack up my entire life and move to the Dominican Republic. Pretty easy to get out of all the social commitments and pressures when you are that far away from everyone. No sooner had I finished a chapter on how to be more selfish did I read a chapter on how important it is not to be selfish in the book 'how to win friends and influence people'. Basically while her advice given in this book might be true- the opposite of her advice is also true. And further to that she writes 50% of this book in brackets. There are too many side points that don't need to be said. Take those words away and you have yourself a pamphlet on how to be a mega b-itch. (even though I secretly enjoy that fuck you attitude)

  • Katie (katieladyreads)

    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”

  • Diana

    I listened to this because I was too tired to read since I was sick all week and therefore I might have missed the point.

    I don't think I need a "you do you" lesson, because I've never really had a problem with being my own person. I'm a bookworm, who loves electro swing, will (literally) wear my fandom on my sleeve and have no problem doing my own thing.

    Or saying what I want. Which might be the lesson I need: be you, but don't be so mean about it.

    And, like the previous books, Knight doesn't stint on the bad words. She admits she kept the title clean so a certain publication *cough* New York Times *cough* would print the all the words of the title in their sought after Best Seller list.

    Which Knight has made before... but had her titles censored for their content.

    I enjoyed

    , but I felt it wasn't as strong as Knight's other titles because she spends so much time rehashing material she has already covered elsewhere.

    That being said, I like Knight's style, her famous diagrams and her illuminating stories. This is an author who has been there, done that and cussed about it.

    My favorite diagram in

    is Knight's "ouroboros" or symbolic, conjoined serpent of wisdom picture. The text with the cute doodle says:

    loc 1995, ebook.

    Verges on mystic Eastern wisdom, doesn't it?

    She encourages all readers everywhere to let the strange sides of yourself out- within certain boundaries. Don't hurt anybody. Don't take advantage of people. Be reasonable within your freakishness.

    loc 2130, ebook.

    "You do you" and let everybody else do them. It's that simple. It's that hard.

    Sarah Knight may be a bit of an acquired taste. Please don't read unless you have a high tolerance for bad words and, dare I say, mild snark.

    But, if you are someone in need of encouragement to let your freak flag fly, look no further.

    Thank you to NetGalley and Little Brown and Company for a free digital copy of this book.

    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.

  • Jacqueline

    I didn't like this book at all. I felt like it was written by someone who forgot to mature when they became an adult. Too shallow, no substance, and part of the problem. This book makes people think the world revolves around them and what the do and say doesn't matter at all. Two many attempts to be funny (when they were not) and too many plugs for other books (which I won't be reading). Two thumbs down!
