    Special thanks to Netgalley for the free digital copy!

    I have never read a book by Sarah Knight but I have heard a lot about her other books. I saw this one on Netgalley and thought it would be a good one for me to read because I say yes to everything even when all I want to do is lay in bed.

    Overall, this was a very informative book with a lot of great examples but it was a lot longer than it needed to be. I read a lot of great information in the beginning but then it quickly started to get

    Some useful tips on how to say no...but it can get very repetitive and could have easily been half the book that it is.

    Sometimes I do have a difficult time saying no and setting boundaries. So I was hopeful to learn some new information or strategies from this book. The book was witty and fun to read but did get a little daunting at times with some of the harsh examples. There are so many useful tips for asserting yourself, and this book may be helpful for those who haven't read any self-help books before about this particular topic.

    Overall, it was an informative book with good examples and tips. But, for me,

    This is a short book on saying no.

    If you have trouble saying no to your boss, co-workers, family and friends, this book can give you a lot of templates to help you say no.

    My problem with the book was that the author was not very polite in some situations, maybe it's because she didn't have any boundaries earlier and now had to try harder to say no but it's easy enough to say no and be polite at the same time. My boss used to do it all the time. :P

    The book could also have been an article. The

    With it's attention grabbing title; and being familiar with Sarah Knight's previous novels / style of writing; I was quick to download this ARC; finding it was exactly what I needed. A no nonsense, witty book about the art of saying no; perfect for a people pleaser and overachiever such as myself.

    I pretty much worship at the altar of Sarah Knight witty, curse-filled wisdom, so I had high expectations for her latest self-help book.

    In case you’re not familiar with her works, Sarah Knight has written four previous self-help books on the topics of not giving a f**k what others think, getting your s**t together, just being yourself, and staying calm in tense situations. I’ve read all of her previous books, own a few of them, and frequently pull them off the shelf when I need some advice. I

    Thank you for the opportunity to read and review another wonderful book from Knight. I love her work! I felt like this book was written for me!! "how to stop saying yes when you can''t" YES! I really enjoy her writing style and how she is not just harping at you. It feels like she is talking to you and telling you how you can really change in a practical way.

    How does someone get better at saying "No?" Why would you want to be better at saying no? According to Sarah Knight and her successful series of books that tackle everything from not giving a f*ck to putting oneself first, there is a myriad of tricks and practices everyone who has problems with saying no can learn out of the safety of their lounge.

    How is this book written for the audience?

    Sarah Knight has made a successful career out of helping people face their fears and shortcomings, and she

    Do you find it hard to tell others (or yourself) No, although you really should (or just want to) say no? Then this is the book for you!

    So many people say yes to way too much, and this book will help you on your way to say no, by giving examples of how to say it.

    It's only one word, but this is a whole book on different ways to say it. Many of the examples she gives is from her own life. Opinions on why you say no, is mentioned, but the important thing here is just HOW.

    She tells you how to

    F*ck No!: How to Stop Saying Yes When You Can't, You Shouldn't, or You Just Don't Want To by Sarah Knight is the fifth installment of the author's No F*cks Given guide series. I will say that her books are best read together as a collection. This is my fourth in the series (as I haven't yet read the fourth book), and it's definitely most effective when you have an understanding of her approach and angle. This book hones in on

    This book was received as an ARC Little, Brown and Company - Voracious in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

    I absolutely love Sarah Knight's series and while using language that is common for the everyday people even if it's not deemed appropriate. All in all the book talks about the power of the word No. No Sarah claims is appropriate to say when you are in a situation that is uncomfortable or hard to process. This is the book

    I received this book via Netgalley for an honest review.

    I had never read a book by Sarah Knight before, but I've always been intrigued by the titles. So when I saw this available on Netgalley, I snapped it up. Sarah Knight gives some great tips on how to say no to your bosses, your friends, and your family. However, a lot of the book was the same thing repeated over and over and over again, this could have been a super short book or even an article on a blog. This book was entirely too long and

    There is so much power in setting boundaries and being assertive. For me, it’s a necessity for my mental health and well-being. I love how she stated that she had a limited number of fuck bucks and she had a fuck budget to maintain. I feel that to my core. I strongly believe that you can be assertive, and still be polite. Great book, but was a bit repetitive.



    * Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Not for me. This book does offer some good ways to say no in a professional setting but otherwise leaves me with few takeaways. I would have preferred more research, statistics and personal anecdotes from various professionals on a situation where they had to say no to something big, and how it impacted them.

    *Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review*

    From the small part that I listened too it seemed like it would be a good audio book! Fun, exciting and alot of cussing! I read the boonk by her about not giving a f*ck and I have a feeling it's going to be just as exciting. The narrator was really good, not boring at all.

    Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book. This book served as a good reminder that it is ok to put yourself first and to say “no.” The charts and scenarios are very useful. This book is a good companion to the author’s other books.
