Book Review: Get Your Sh!t Together by Ruth Field

Emma Codd

Currently based in the delightful town of Motueka, Emma is pursuing her passion for the written word and yoga teaching. Her motley background and eclectic interests provide Emma with much to write about many things, which she mostly does online. She is also busy unleashing her inner fiction writer.

Do you find yourself gazing longingly at immaculately dressed women, at the top of their game, living in pristine houses? You know the ones: those women with a job, a husband, 2.8 kids, a social life, a smile, and the perpetual smell of freshly baked biscuits wafting from their kitchen window. Meanwhile, you're working off To Do lists scribbled on the backs of (overdue) bills, you can't find your car keys - again - and you can't find the bottom of your handbag for all the clutter accumulated therein. It's time to get your sh!t together, and the Grit Doctor is here to help you do it!

In her latest book, Get Your Sh!t Together, Ruth Field, AKA the Grit Doctor, helps women to take action, and take control of their lives. With her no-nonsense approach, she teaches us how to find more hours in the day, how to clean out our shelves, how to let go of grudges and how to find the courage to go for it, whatever "it" may be.

Although wittily tongue-in-cheek, Get Your Sh!t Together has common sense truths at its core. The Grit Doctor's straight talking wisdom is interspersed with Ruth's own personal anecdotes, exercises, and plenty of tips, tricks and grit grenades to help you get what you want out of life. From To Don't lists to Grit Doctor announcements, this book guides you through the how to's of everything from cleaning out the clutter to being kinder to your loved ones. I couldn't put this book down, and having been taking the Grit Doctor's advice since I first picked it up.

This easy-to-read, laugh-out-loud guide is truly a prescription to simpler living. The advice is practical, empowering, and all you need to make the transformation from Miss Sh!t-all-over-the-place to Miss Sh!t-together. Get Your Sh!t Together is a must-read for women everywhere, and your first step to having it all and learning (finally) how to run your life.

London-based Ruth Field is the author of the successful Run Fat B!tch Run, a columnist for the Irish Times, and a former criminal barrister.

      Sounds like a great book to motivate people to clean out the crap in their lives figuratively and literally and move on to bigger and better things. True that we can get weighed down by things we should just untangle and free ourselves from. Also though the people we look at who seem to have it....sometimes all is not as it seems, and it may not be a bed of roses in their life either
