THE *&#% IT LIST Review and giveaway

Face it, life is short and who has time to see 1000 places, read 1000 more "classics" or see 1000 movies somebody else deems essential, and all that nonsense? Here is a list of 101 things you should never bother with from the fiendishly clever mind of Kevin Pryslak. The F*ck It List is a hilarious middle-finger salute to all those absurd life goals that will ensure an anxiety-filled middle age will be followed by shame-filled golden years. It pokes a sorely needed pin into a bloated rite of passage that's ripe for deflation. Do you really need to firewalk or didn't Oprah and Tony Robbins take care of that for us? Swimming with sharks is a really dumb idea, so let's leave that with the gullible reality tv desperadoes, shall we? Kevin Pryslak has come up with a "to don't list" that will have you laughing out loud and leave you with lots more time to do the all the things YOU really want to do! (synopsis from Amazon)
  Chapters include:
  • I’m not going to a nudist colony
  • I’m not going to become a millionaire
  • I’m not getting a coffee enema
  • I’m not getting back in shape
  • I’m not going to start a band
  • I’m not walking the Great Wall of China
  • I’m not going to run for public office
  • I’m not going to quit work
Want a chance to win a copy of THE *&%@ IT LIST? Go here and tell us how you feel about Bucket Lists. Winner will be drawn at random sometime during Christmas Eve night.

My thoughts.........
Pithy and humorous were the first words that sprang to mind while reading this fun lil book.
Why do we do these things to ourselves? Bucket Lists are self-induced lil stress lists. I’m all for going for what you want, bettering yourself, being adventurous and what not, but often these lists are filled with things there’s not a snowball’s chance of achieving, doing, etc…Hang that.
While being laugh inducing THE *$%# LIST also makes a valid point: Live in today, the now. Take advantage of what’s in front of you, available to you. Don’t waste valuable time pining for the unattainable or some lofty future goal. The life best lived is one that’s lived for the day, making the most of the now.

THE %#$& IT LIST does what humor often does best, entertains and teaches (even if not always intentionally). The laughter makes the lesson palatable and the brevity makes it easy to carry along and read whenever you have two minutes to rub together.
Enjoy, and start your own $#&* List…J
