The life-changing magic of not giving a f*ck – Sarah Knight


Are you stressed out, overbooked and underwhelmed by life? Fed up with pleasing everyone else before you please yourself? Then it’s time to stop giving a f**k. This irreverent and practical book explains how to rid yourself of unwanted obligations, shame, and guilt – and give your f**ks instead to people and things that make you happy. From family dramas to having a bikini body, the simple ‘NotSorry Method’ for mental decluttering will help you unleash the power of not giving a f**k and will free you to spend your time, energy and money on the things that really matter.

My opinion

The title of this book is of course a huge wink to the world-famous book written by Marie Kondo, which made everyone and their mother started clearing out their houses. Sarah Knight wants you to clear out your head after you’ve read her book. Most of all the things you don’t give a fuck about, why would you want to spend your time and energy on that?

Sarah Knight starts of with the things that are pretty obvious: why would you care about Kanye West who tried to shut up Taylor Swift or the American elections. You cannot change those things, so it’s a waste of time to thing about that. When she’s done discussing that, the book gets a little more serious, although just a slight bit, because there is still enough humor in the book. Sarah Knight talks about friends, family and coworkers. She asks questions that may seem totally logical, but you may not have thought about. Her ‘fuck-givings’ are often really tough and maybe not for everyone, but as someone who overthinks things, I certainly get why you should totally give less fucks about things.

You don’t get to influence a whole lot of things and you can use that time, which you normally spend on thinking about that, to spend on a new hobby or the love of your life. Sarah Knight gives you great tips which are easy to carry out. I can imagine you wanting to pick up the book once in a while, do the exercies in the book and slowly end up giving less fucks about the things that are useless and are still in your head.


‘The life-changing magic of not giving a f*ck’ by Sarah Knight is a very practical but also funny book which helps you to overthink less and to spend less time thinking on things that are useless. A very educational book which you’ll end up picking up very often.
