Blending memoir and blistering social observations, the author of The F*ck It Diet looks back at her desperate attempts to heal her hunger, anxiety, and imperfections through extreme diets, culty self-help methods, and melodramatic bargains with the universe.
Offering a frank and funny critique of the cultural forces that are driving us mad, Caroline Dooner examines how treating ourselves like never ending self-improvement projects is a recipe for burnout. We have become unknowingly complicit in perpetuating our own exhaustion because we are treating ourselves like machines. But even phones need to f*cking recharge.
Caroline takes a good hard look at the dark side of self-help, and explains how she eventually used a radical period of rest to push back against cultural expectations and reclaim some peace.
Tired As F*ck empowers us to say no to the things that exhaust us. It inspires us to carve out time to slow down, feel okay about doing less, and honor our humanity.
This is not a self-help book, it’s a cautionary tale. It’s an honest look at the dogma of wellness and spiritual self-improvement culture and revels in the healing power of rest and letting shit go.
“This book is what Caroline Dooner does best. . . . Hilarious, relatable, yet unflinchingly honest, Tired as F*ck is an empowering memoir every woman needs to read. As a therapist, I am increasingly concerned about the toll hustle culture is taking on our lives, and Caroline tackles this topic head-on while also guiding readers back to themselves. In a time when most memoirs shout ‘if I accomplished this, you can do it, too!,’ Tired as F*ck implores us to truly take care of ourselves and f*cking rest.” -- Amanda White, author of Not Drinking Tonight
“For anyone who is tired of sacrificing their sanity to fit into a smaller pair of jeans, Tired as F*ck highlights our complicated relationship with success, beauty, and health. When itcomes to wellness trends, Caroline has tried it all. With the voice of a funny, honest, andrelatable friend, she takes you on her journey to find acceptance by any means necessary.This book will force you to see just how wildly obsessed we’ve become with the quest forbeauty, thinness, and pseudo ‘health’ that you just may decide to get off the roller coasterand rest, too.” -- Whitney Goodman, LMFT, author of Toxic Positivity
“Tired as F*ck takes the F*ck It Diet mindset and focuses it on the countless ways we must rebel against the ‘hustle and grind’ culture that leaves us exhausted and depleted. Dooner opens up about her own anxieties and trauma in a style that is somehow light and hopeful, inviting us all to consider how we’ve grown up and grown older in a world that asks us to prioritize progress and productivity over actual health and well-being. This book is the reminder we all need to redefine what health, happiness, and hustle mean in our everyday lives.” -- Lexie Kite, PHD, coauthor of More Than a Body
“Tired as F*ck is, quite frankly, relatable as f*ck. With her relatable stories and humorous writing, Caroline will make you feel seen, heard, and understood in an experience we all know too well: feeling constantly exhausted but not being able to pinpoint why. In a society that’s constantly burned out, this book will reenergize you—physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.” -- Mary Jelkovsky, author of The Gift of Self-Love
“Caroline manages to weave her personal stories into the broader cultural narrative in a way that makes you simultaneously laugh, cringe, exhale, and feel less alone. Smart, funny, witty, and just in time, Tired as F*ck is exactly the kind of medicine we need right now.” -- Laura Mckowen, bestselling author of We Are the Luckiest and founder of The Luckiest Club --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

She effortlessly demonstrates how societal pressures, expectations and perceptions are all too often dangerously soul crushing, traumatizing and simply exhausting.
While this is not a self help book, it is most definitely a profoundly healing one. 5 Stars Plus!

I even bought the audiobook in addition to the Kindle version so I could keep listening (wonderful narration by Caroline!). I can't quite even articulate how much Caroline's books have shifted my mindset and made me take stock of my life. I only started following The F*ck It Diet about 3 weeks ago, and have been reading it slowly as I do the work, because it is such a monumental mindset shift. I bought this book figuring I'd read it afterwards, but I started it and then couldn't stop. Caroline's candid vulnerability allowed me to see so many parallels in my own life in the way that I think only this true openness could.
I had started this year with a similar realization as her - maybe I needed to just stop the relentless goals and the relentless drive to be more productive. I'm so tired; I feel so ashamed. The goals aren't working. I decided to focus on mindfulness and maybe figuring out why I feel so horribly unproductive and behind no matter what I do. This led me to asking my friend about the F*ck It Diet (which I'd previously resisted as seeming "pretty irresponsible" as I limped along with my less and less effective and more restrictive diets), which led me to Caroline's Instagram, which led me to this book.
I was even able to see some of my self help methodologies that I would have normally defended vehemently, in a new light. More and more, from so many sources, I am now seeing and realizing the importance of allowing ourselves to be human and feel our human feelings and treat our human selves humanely. And I appreciate how Caroline could articulate so many things in the perfect way for me to understand and have a gentle realization. The book is funny, it is heartbreaking, it is so human. Let's stop being so hard on ourselves. I'm ready to declutter and to rest and to listen to myself. Thank you, Caroline.
This is definitely a captivating book, but kind of like a car crash, you just can’t look away. But it’s not as helpful as I was hoping. I’m about 2/3 of the way through it and haven’t really found any insights that I can use to improve my own life. I was hoping this would be as insightful as hearing her speak, but it’s not for me. It’s almost like she write it while she was struggling still, but now is wiser. I want to hear more of her “now” and less of the struggle. I’m also less interested in the diet topic, which is why I bought this this one and not her first book, but this book is still very much about her struggles with food.
It’s an entertaining read, but not full of the helpful ideas she talks about these days. Maybe I’ll just stick to podcasts.
