From the author of the New York Times and international bestseller Unfu*k Yourself Gary John Bishop presents a no-holds-barred guide to breaking through our cycles of self-sabotage to get what we want out of life.
In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop told us it was time to stop making excuses—to recognize and take responsibility for the negative self-talk holding us back.
In Stop Doing That Sh*t, he builds on that message, teaching us how to stop self-sabotaging behavior. Bishop explains how our destructive cycles come down to the way that we’re wired. He then identifies different types of people and the ways we fu*k ourselves over: We can’t save money. We land in the same type of toxic relationship. We’re stuck in a rut at work. Analyzing why we act the way we do, including what our common grenades are that blow up our lives, Bishop then shows how we can interrupt the cycle and stop self-sabotaging our lives.
Written in the same in your face style as Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t will help us get in touch with our psychological machinery so we learn to interrupt negative thoughts and behavior before they start, allowing us to give our attention to something else, and start to find success in the areas we thought we never could.
We can take back our lives. We may have fu*ked up in the past, but Stop Doing That Sh*t will show us how to break the patterns in order to live the lives we yearn to have.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The bestselling author of Unfu*k Yourself cements his status as a straight-shooting life coach with Stop Doing That Sh*t. Using his endearingly gruff delivery and trademark salty language, Gary John Bishop presses us to look honestly at how we undermine ourselves and become our own worst enemies. With prompts like “If you keep living this way, where’s it all headed?,” Bishop’s process can lead to emotional places. But once we started identifying our patterns and assumptions, his step-by-step approach helped major personal changes feel surprisingly manageable. The audiobook’s bite-size chapters make it the perfect listen for a lunchtime confidence boost.

Wash Your Brain
Everywhere you turn you can find a reason to justify your mediocrity, and a gang of compatriots to assure you that excellence is overrated. The Internet is bursting with memes designed to help you feel more comfortable with failure of every degree. Gary John Bishop delivers a counter message, and invites you to take the action necessary to “level up” your life. Both of his books (also try “Unfu*k Yourself”) are favourites of mine in my own efforts to ask more of myself and stay convinced of my power to achieve the life and impact I actually want. His charming Scottish accent and no holds barred straight-talk, make his delivery of the wisdom of the ages, fresh and engaging.
