Stop Doing That Sh*t by Gary John Bishop

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

Gary John Bishop is the NYT bestselling author of Unfu*k Yourself, a self-help book that stressed the importance of taking responsibility for our negative self-talk and the necessity to stop making excuses for ourselves because all of that bullsh*t holds us back from the life we want.

In Stop Doing That Sh*t, Bishop adds layers to that initial message so we can stop our self-sabotaging behavior. He hopes to help us to ask and answer ourselves regarding the three most important questions we need to know about life.

Bishop’s style is blunt and in your face as he explains how your past influences your present, and he is as equally blunt and in  your face as he explains that your past is only the excuse you are using to create your self-sabotage—all because you believe the bullsh*t you tell yourself. That giant steaming pile is just your perception. It’s not the truth. So, get over yourself.  

While not as edgy as Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t contains nothing particularly earth-shattering but does provide thought provoking information that could help some of us look deeply in the mirror so we can make the changes we want in our lives.
