CW coarse and sexual language, discussion of sex, assumptions that everyone is sexual and romantic, way too much social media lingo TW thanatophobiaDespite all that, there were some meaningful insights Just the validation that emotions are NOT controllable was worthwhile See, even as I type that sentence, I worry about people in the comments insisting that they are. Dr Venus Nicolino, or Dr V, criticizes common pop psychology nuggets like, honesty is the best policy, or, you can t love anyone until you love yourself, and replaces them with moderate, realistic approaches While some of her advice seems sound, I had difficulty with the author s tone She adopts a breezy, gossipy, potty mouthed attitude, filled with hashtags, her second favorite cuss word, bullshit, and her favorite, fuck This gets old very fast I suppose she wants to come across as edgy, or down to earth, but to me it seemed juvenile I nearly flung this book across the room at one point, when she made a blatantly false statement late in the book For a work that claims to filter out bullshit, this one has an uncommonly high fertilizer content Doctor, heal thyself. Won as an ARC giveaway on Goodreads DNF The tone of the writing and the language was not for me There might have been actual good advice in this book, but I could not wade through the shrill language to find it. It pretends not to be a self help book, but it s a self help book Shouldn t have second guessed my bias in this case. Have you ever just randomly picked up a book, and found exactly what you needed to hear at that time of your life in its pages It doesn t happen often, but So if you re suffering through a deep disappointment now, know this What you re feeling isn t a sign of failure it s evidence of courage It s evidence that you had the courage to try You had the courage to love You had the courage to make yourself heard And courage is never wrong was perfect I won t say the whole book was perfect, even though it was pretty good throughout, but finding this nugget in it was apparently why I needed to read it This book is NOT for you if you re offended by profanity or bawdy metaphors, but I would definitely recommend it to everyone else. This book was super annoying Her trucker language and funny scenarios were really not my thing I thought it would ve been a worthy read but it turned out to be a dud So unless you have no street smarts and really have no idea how to function in life, don t waste your time Also, part of me thinks the author has a very hard time at accepting words of wisdom and needs things said her way in order to feel worthy Positives about this book this is a short read that is really a set of seemingly off the cuff rants that have a lot of truth behind them Negatives I can t believe that people really need to be told how to disregard bad advice that is as obvious as you can t love anyone else if you don t love yourself On the other hand I had to admit that I relatively enjoyed reading someone delineate all of those little truisms that folks dash off when they don t know what else to say and destroy them one by one. She sounded so much like Carrie Fisher that that is who I pictured reading this book to me Beyond that, it s a solid self help book with a curse word in the title, irreverent and funny while pulling down some common sense As a side note, I find I m happier when I m listening to these books It isn t even so much the advice, sometimes I want to bang my head against the wall because it isn t all good advice, but I am theorizing it is because I feel connected to all the other readers looking for the same things I am. Aside from the bit about forgiveness at least in certain situations this book was what I had been looking for I was so sick of the jesusy and fluffy inspiration or even downright abusive advice ie people can t hurt you unless you give them permission gaslighting much Highly recommend If you can t deal with someone cursing like a sailor, this is not for you p `DOWNLOAD BOOK ☝ Bad Advice: How to Survive and Thrive in an Age of Bullshit ⇵ Los Angeles Times BestsellerUSA Today Bestselling BookOver Motivational Messages Sick AF Of Inspirational Quotes Done With The Shiny Happy Bad Advice That Gets You Nowhere Well, Heads Up You Re About To Get A Shitload Of Good AdviceIn Bad Advice, Relationship Expert Dr Venus Nicolino Aka Dr V Takes A Blowtorch To The Shrink Wrapped, Feel Good BS That Passes For Self Help These DaysWhen You Re Heartbroken, What Do You Hear You Can T Love Anyone Until You Love Yourself When Someone S Hurt You Nobody Can Make You Feel Bad Without Your Permission When You Re Just A Little Too Positive Expectations Lead To Disappointment Pop Culture Noise Gives Bad Advice The Varnish Of Truthiness And Inspiration But It S Not Truth It S Not Inspiration It S Bullshit And At Its Root, All Bad Advice Operates Off The Same Lie Emotions Are Optional In Bad Advice, Dr V Delivers A Bracing Truth Serum, In The Form Of Good Advice An Antidote To The Bullshit, From Just Be Yourself To Live Each Day Like It S Your Last, That Teaches You To Live Your Life In A Way That Honors Who You Are, What You Need, And How You FeelSmart And Irreverent, Dr V Fuses The Brains And Insight Of A Nerdy PhD With The Heart Of A Doting Italian Mother And The Artful Profanity Of A Philly Trucker Dr V S Signature Combination Of Humor, Hard Science, And Heart Make Bad Advice An Iconoclastic Course Correction Like No Other A Fiercely Sharp Wake Up Call That Tackles Some Of Self Help S Most Damaging Truisms, Bad Advice Is A Never Shy Guide To Tapping Into Your Full Potential
