There's nothing new in this self-help "tough love" book. You could read the title "Get out of your head and into your life" and that's the basis for what he's trying to convey. It's short and to the point and I think it would help some people that need a simple book that may push them into a better life. I like way he presents the material. He probably writes like he speaks with a Scottish accent - quick and to the point. It's exactly what my mom and dad would have done years ago.

He says, "Imagine that you're on your deathbed...and you've got only a few hours to live...You never made a change you wanted. You stayed stuck in the same job, the same relationship, the same overweight body until now. the day you die." He goes on to say that while you are healthy, you have a choice to make changes in your life. What is stopping you?

Why is it that you can tell others this same content and yet, if it comes from a book or therapist, it has more meaning? So I'm sending it to my step-daughter. Maybe it will do her some good if only she will read it.

Just another in a line of books that like to use F*ck and Sh*t in their titles. This one, however, is what turned out to be the bridge to Stoicism. From here I started reading Donald J. Robertson, Massimo Pigliucci, Marcus Aurellius, Epictitus, Seneca, etc.

TL;DR - You're in control of your life, stop wasting it.

Basically a 3 hour long motivational speech about how you are your own problem. No real tips or strategies, just him telling you to get your life together. If you're going to read it, get the audio book because Scottish accent is way more motivating than reading to yourself. LOL
