"A compendium of comebacks and replies for when you just don't want to.
This has everything our inner introvert has always needed."—Irish Tatler
"Witty and sensible... and does what it says on the tin.... Quite brilliant! Maybe not the ideal gift for Granny, mind!"
—The Sport (UK)
"Knight's The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck
was a massive hit in 2015 and the follow-up, F*ck No!
, will likely prove popular.... [Full of] charts, graphics and tables to fill in and concrete examples of how to say 'no' while sparing someone's feelings. Along with light-hearted advice, Knight neatly guides readers through more serious situations... such as dealing with unpleasant neighbors or avoiding being rushed out of a doctor's appointment [and] setting and enforcing sexual boundaries."—The Independent (UK), "The 5 Biggest Books of December"
