Unf*ck Yourself

by Gary John Bishop

Unf*ck Yourself

Gary John Bishop

Overview

If you've ever wondered why your life seems to be turning out as it is, there's probably an obvious answer staring back at you from the mirror. We're all prey to negative feelings and limiting beliefs from time to time, but once we recognize them for what they are, we can start to access our true potential.

Gary John Bishop is a no-nonsense Glaswegian who's run a successful U.S. coaching business since 1997. For all his often confrontational style, Bishop is also a fan of philosophy, particularly the Stoics, whose still-relevant quotes pepper this book.

In Unf*ck Yourself, Bishop considers why we think as we do, often for sound evolutionary reasons – and unpicks it with a blunt yet empathetic touch. This book reminds us that it's within our means to act in ways that benefit rather than harm us, and shows how to go about it.
