If every therapist and psychotherapist on the planet could repeat this to their clients, like a mantra, again and again, there would be fewer therapists and psychotherapists. Because it works. Very quickly. Realising that what you're worrying about and stressing over doesn't really matter so much in the grand scheme of things is the door to freedom and healing. And the lit...more

F**k it Therapy by John C. Parkin is going to help a lot of people. Wherever you are in life, you know that stress has a stranglehold on a great number of us. Not good, considering stress is the number one killer nowadays. John offers many techniques to help you escape from the self imposed prisons we check ourselves into. The prisons of fear, self-doubt, perfectionism and many more are looked at in great detail. I found the sections dealing with the ancient art of qigong particularly refreshing...more
I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. On one hand, I feel that Parkin (and his wife, who worked on this book with him) took a simple idea that essentially wasn't terribly difficult to grasp and piled on a bunch of unnecessary layers. Why? Cynical me says, "Well, duh, to sell another book and to hawk their retreats and their website and his music and whatever other accoutrements they can because, hey, that's what people do with 'self-help breakthroughs' these days--take a pretty basic not...more
"F**k It (fuk-eet): to let go by realizing that causes of worry, distress, and pain don't matter so much in the grand scheme of things."

So many of us live in prisons of our own making—prisons of perfectionism, fear (that's a big one), self-doubt, or . . . well, it's a long list. These prisons of our own making are not real. We build them in our minds, and because we build them, we also have the power to say F**k It and blow the walls down.

John Parkin and his wife Gaia use humour and an easy styl...more

I went on a f**k it week around 3 years ago
A year ago I left my well paid job and career to try to do something more fun
I've had lots of fun but haven't found the way to turn this into a living, much less the motivation to start a business. So I was wavering a needed a boost. Reading this has reminded me of a lot of good stuff. I won't say that I should or shouldn't be doing. But it was relaxing to read in a few hot summer days while chilling in my garden not worrying about the rapid depletion o...more

A great book for those of us stuck worrying about things that are not really important in the grand scheme of things. Just say F**kIt and see what happens. More importantly buy this book and see how much it will change your life like it has mine.
I have all of John's books and have even had the great pleasure to meet him as well. I have even purchased his first book for a friend who was going through some difficult times. He loved it and it has really helped him like John's books have helped me....more
My mother always said that people show their IQs with how they speak and that vulgarity shows a poor vocabulary. I never bought into that theory. I am a psychologist, with a Ph.D., who graduated from a seminary, who often sounds like she spent time as sailor. So, when I saw a book called Fuck It Therapy, I assumed it was right up my alley. Unfortunately, I did not find that to be the case. It started with the need to do away with the asterisks in the word Fuck. On the cover, it might have been c...more
Firstly this is a good concept. Before I opened the book I started saying F**k It to random things and already felt a bit better.

The book gives good reasons why using this method is helpful, but when you get down to the nitty gritty it doesn't tell you HOW! It almost seems as if the book is just one big advert to steer you in the direction of one of the author's retreats or to join the new online course he is offering. There is no definite advice on how to benefit from the method but it seems to...more
I read the entire thing in an English accent. VERY British, which isn't a terrible thing, but distracting for sure.

I can't rate this book because I only read the first chapter. I was reading too many books at once, and may revisit this at a later time.

John C. Parkin is amazing with his easy, breezy f**k it attitude towards life. John also joined me on a TeleCall Conversation on Passion TeleSummits, and I simply adored his love of life and living it from ease. This is a MUST-READ book for everyone!
I've only been done reading it for a day or so and it's already changing my life. Amazing, amazing, amazing. I absolutely detest "self-help" books, and the awful writing that so often accompanies the genre. This book is WONDERFULLY written, hilariously illustrated, and details a simple and revolutionary way of living. Thank you.
As with all self-help books, this didn't give me the answer to a completely perfect and happy life, but it did give me some great tools to work with, and also introduced me to Qigong which I am enjoying and finding very relaxing. I am very surprised that just saying F**k It can reduce stress instantly.

Belki de 4 ayda bitirdim ben bu kitabı. Aslında hevesle başlamıştım okumaya. İlginç gelmişti. İlerlemedi bir türlü. Çevirmenden kaynaklı olduğunu düşünüyorum. Bazı kelimeler dikkat dağıtıyor, konuyla alakasız. Yazıldığı dilde okunsa daha iyi olabilir.

This is how self help books should be !
The answer to so many of our problems can be solved with a two word attitude/conclusion/resolve....

Great. As with the previous two books, I loved it. I've read several spiritual books and these are the only ones that I actually get.

I had to stop reading this. The writing was all over the place and some of the ideas in it were too woo woo for me.
Read on a whim, this is not just the book I needed to read, but also half the book I was already writing myself.
