Book 20: The Unfu*kwithable Life: 7 Codes to Embrace Connection & Vulnerability For a Life of Inspiration & Freedom by Amber Hawken – 285 pages

Description from Goodreads.com:
The Unfu*kwithable Life encompasses seven codes, each containing punchy lessons to reveal the power of vulnerability to enhance your existence. It gives you the tools to live a remarkable life, with fierce determination, inner peace, and strength while streamlining comprehensive concepts into simple actions steps and heart-warming wisdom. As you connect with yourself, you will be empowered mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Using the paradox of crude wit and compassion, this book forces you to become uncomfortably honest with yourself, then gently guides you to a place where you can shatter the limits you’ve been clinging to for comfort. It’s designed to teach the greatest lessons of self mastery and spiritual philosophy, through humour and straight shooting advice. It will trigger a force deep inside of you, that’s here for a spectacular reason.
Whether you are a seasoned personal development addict or you prefer not to venture into 'self help-woo-woo-crap', The Unfu*kwithable Life, will provoke you to think much more deeply and profoundly about how you define yourself, happiness and success and ultimately challenge you to access your highest level of fulfillment.

I probably knew 95% of this (though maybe not quite in the hokey way that Amber describes it) and I probably practice 75-80% of it, but I think it would be a good read for anyone who wants/needs to develop their self-awareness. Amber's writing style wasn't really for me, and I think this book is self-published because it was evident that a good edit is required, but for the right type of person it could be a very valuable book. I've got a few friends I wouldn't mind getting copies for, though they'd probably be insulted that I thought they needed the guidance!
