CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy) and mindfulness is a great thing. Swearing is also a great thing! But... I was really annoyed with this book. The introduction was great! I ate it up and wanted to know more, to learn how swearing could help me remind myself that I'm great and I can do whatever I want! But swearing and ...more
I requested this book not knowing what to expect but that was why I requested it, because I was curious to see what it was about. Unfortunately it just didn't click with me and I lost interest pretty fast. I don't really have anything more to say. It simply wasn't for me.
Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion
Self-help books are so subjective – I feel like a good book in this genre is any one that you find at the time that you need it. That being said, I read this one all the way through in order to review it.
What drew me in first was the title. But, in the foreword and introductions, we learn that cussing is actually part of the point. There’s a newer concept in psychology that says swearing is good for you – it can help relieve stress, and it ...more
Move on Motherf*cker :Live, Laugh and Let Sh*t Go by Jodie Eckleberry-Hunt is self-help with a difference. It is a book that encourages you to call yourself out on your sabotaging self, the part of you that delivers the guilt, degradation and all those nasty, negative emotions that we inflict upon ourselves.
Although the title of the book may shock some, it is by no means gratuitous, and once you get to understand the principle of MOMF, you’ll be more than ready to embrace i ...more
I received an advanced copy of this book from Netgalley for my honest review.
The concept of the book itself was really good. I liked the simplicity of recognizing your negative self-talk and telling it to "move on, motherf*cker".
The book was organized into small chapters on various common feelings that we experience in our life. The chapters were then further separated into journaling prompts, stories/examples, and methods for overcoming these negative thoughts / feelings.
I loved this book for its ...more
You may be wondering why a book on how to improve your life needs to include swears but it turns out they're kind of the point! Psychologists say swearing is good for you and relieves stress - I f*cking knew it! You'll learn how to swear your way through all sorts of negative thoughts and toxic situations but what really resonated with me was the reminder to let g ...more
Could recommend as a follow up to someone who liked "the subtle art of not giving a f**k."

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I really didn't get anything from this that is new to me or totally important at all. Maybe other readers may find this book helpful, but sadly this book feels to me like trying to justify saying profanities (in a boring way) when it doesn't even need to be critically analyzed whatsoever.
After more than 20 years of providing counseling services, I developed the idea of combining co ...more
