Quercus is set to release The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**K on New Year's Eve in what the publisher has called its "take on New Year, New You".
The book is written by freelance writer Sarah Knight - whose post called 'I Quit My Job Today (And So Could You)' on online platform Medium has been hailed a "viral sensation".
Jane Sturrock at Quercus bought UK & Commonwealth rights to the book from Tracy Williams at Little, Brown in the US.
Sturrock said: "I love Sarah’s book and every single person I’ve shared it with has rhapsodised about it. An enlightened few (and children everywhere) have already embraced the philosophy; for others Sarah’s 'not sorry method' has shown them how to get some perspective on life and start prioritising what is really important."
She added the book is a "rare beast."
"Sarah’s book will make you laugh out loud, but also fill you with a sense of empowerment. This is Quercus’s take on New Year, New You."
Knight is a freelance writer and editor, blogger, and "publishing veteran".
The Life-Changing Magic of Not-Giving a F**k will be published by Quercus in hardback on 31st December 2015.
