To stop struggling and finally do what you wish . . . to ignore what everyone is telling you and just go your own way . . . feels really great.
In this inspiring and humorous book, John C. Parkin suggests that saying F**k It is the perfect Western expression of the Eastern spiritual concept of letting go, giving up, and finding real freedom by re...more

When you say fuck it, you are giving up your tension in whatever you are saying it to, and replacing it with a mind open to whatever happens next. And as your psychological tensions weaken, your physical ones start to disappear too.
However, what John Parkin ...more

Touted as akin to Taoism and other spiritual beliefs, the main premise of the F**k It: The Ultimate Spiritual Way philosophy is letting go. Indeed, there is merit in this i ...more
I really like the philosophy behind this book - the idea contained herein is that we need to stop stressing so much over everything ("Am I good enough? Holy enough? Peaceful enough? Loving enough? A good enough spouse, child, parent, employee, person, citizen?") and just say "f--- it" to things that we can't control (and even quite a few things that we can) and learn to relax a little. It's the Total Perspective Vortex of books - you're not important, and you never wil ...more
sanırım bu kitap tembellerin eline geçerse durum çok vahim olabilir. bu kitabı sadece kontrol bağımlısı aşırı çalışkan kimselere tavsiye edebilirim...

I think may be fatal if this book commes in lazy humans hands.I can recommend this book just only extremely hard-working people who addict for control.
becous; the books aim is to lose a littel bit stress...
The "Fuck it" notion is a simplification and popularization of Eastern (Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist) concepts of non-attachment. The title might imply an ...more
The basis of this book is to say that our lives are full of meaning, or misplaced meaning. If we can let go of things (basically say f**k it), we relax and let go of the tension that makes us ill/neurotic/general basket cases.
But it then goes onto say, that if you do that, you'll get everything you want. Your health will be better, more money will come to you and that's the bit I'm struggling with. In a couple of areas there ...more
It also avoids and uncovers pitfalls of most other new age "mindfulness" therapy things. Gets more wavey towards the end with the chi exercises but if it's not your thing just drop it, the rest of the advice is solid.
Start trying to please yourself more and see what happens.
When we strip away meaning from the things that are meaningful in our lives, that's where we find peace and the divine.
Relaxing deeply and letting go can resolve any problem.
I found it a valuable read, though, and am already enjoying the practice of it so I'll be making permanent room for it on my shelf. :)
Dann bist du bei diesem Ratgeber richtig. Fuck it wird dir den Weg zurück ins unbeschwerte und freie Leben zeigen, auf eine Weise, die jeder jederzeit erlernen kann.

I seem to have a weakness, or maybe just a yen, for semi-obscenities in book titles. Oh well, as Parkin would say, f**k it!
A very sloppily constructed book, consequently slightly boring to read, chock full of padding and of course a gimmicky title. Actually, in my limited but still extensive experience, books in the spirituality / self-help zone are never exactly unputdownable. In fact I didn't put this one down much mainly because I wanted to squeeze out whatever juice it contained as quickly a ...more
What this book is, is nothing more than journey into one man's rambling thoughts about society and spiritually. It's a constant contradiction - if things don't matter to you, they can't bother you. You can be free if nothing matters to you. While I appreciate this is a spiritual concept that works for many, I actually think a lot of things matter.
I found some of his writing quite offensive. "If you want to s ...more
"Fuck it is a most profane way of saying the most profound thing: that when we relax and give in to the simple flow of life, we will experience the ultimate freedom."
Yet another awesome book idea I wish I would have gotten to first ...more
The book tells you how ,to say "F**k it!" feels really good at times and that you will be much happier and soooo much more relaxed if you stop bothering about every little thing...so yeah, the book basically repeats the title and expresses it in many many maaaany different ways ,over and over again.

So they drift from one thing to another, enjoying some moments and hating others, but never really finding fulfillment or success. (..)
This is why it's hard to lead a successful life (whatever that means to you) when you don't know what you want.”
