The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck
In this generation-defining self-help guide; a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be 'positive' all the time so that we can truly become better; happier people. For decades; we have been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy; rich life. 'F**k positivity;' Mark Manson says. 'Lets be honest; shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.' In his wildly popular Internet blog; Manson does not sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is a dose of raw; refreshing; honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling; lets-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation; rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Manson makes the argument; backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes; that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade; but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited not everybody can be extraordinary; there are winners and losers in society; and some of it is not fair or your fault.' Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears; faults; and uncertainties; once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths; we can begin to find the courage; perseverance; honesty; responsibility; curiosity; and forgiveness we seek.
There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter; Manson makes clear. While money is nice; caring about what you do with your life is better; because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk; filled with entertaining stories and profane; ruthless humor; The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented; grounded lives.
EVERY THING IS F*CKED We live in an interesting time. Materially; everything is the best its ever been we are freer; healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet; somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked the planet is warming; governments are failing; economies are collapsing; and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history; when we have access to technology; education and communication our ancestors could not even dream of; so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.
Now in Everthing Is F*cked
Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics; as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato; Nietzsche; and Tom Waits; he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money; entertainment and the internet; and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith; happiness; freedom and even of hope itself.
With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor; Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably have not considered before. Its another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.
