    First and foremost, this book is hilarious. If you don't read the book to actually change how many f*cks you give, read it because the author is a hoot. (Ugh, did I just use "a hoot" to describe somebody? Oh well #notsorry).

    More than the humor though, you'll also learn some valid and smart techniques on how to feel less obligated to do things and truly do the things for which you give a f*ck. In the author's words, managing your F*ck Budget.

    The book gets a little repetitive after a while and you get the gist of the message pretty quickly. Maybe a series of blogs or articles was a better format; but still some great content and genuine belly laughs along the way. ( )

    Jokaisen kannattaa lukea tämä. Vaikka ehkä hiukan itseään toistava onkin. ( )

    Do y'all ever read a book just because you want to hear someone agree with you and cheer you on when you are trying to do something but feel like you're failing miserably. I do. It's the entire reason I read THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF NOT GIVING A F*CK. I am super good at giving out f*cks. I give out my daily allotment of f*cks and then I borrow some from tomorrow and next week. I'd be upset that I ran out of f*cks... if I had any more to give, that is. Mostly, that all just leaves me tired.

    So is this book actually life-changing? I mean... no? I learned absolutely nothing, though I liked Knight's metaphor of f*cks being a physical object where you only have a finite amount to hand out - that resonated. Otherwise? It was nice to read a book that continued to give me permission to keep doing the thing I am trying to do to value my own time. ( )

    I think this comes easy for some, but, I struggle with caring too much. This book helps to narrow down your "f!@k budget" into a manageable list.

    Also, I thought it was appropriate that as I was returning this book I heard these lyrics on the radio 'these are the things I can do without' good mantra for this book! ( )

    I definitely enjoyed the humorous approach to shifting your mentality to make room for only the things that spark joy. I also appreciated the author's focus on not giving a fuck without becoming an asshole, making the book genuinely useful. It's a difficult mentality to shift, which the author fully recognizes, but I'm going to try to implement what she's laid out over time. ( )
