The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

(с) Mark Manson, ISBN 978-0062457714


In this generation-specific self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the shit to show us how we can stop being "positive" all the time so we can really become better, happier people.

For decades we have been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy and rich life. "F ** k positivity," says Mark Manson. "Be honest, shit is screwed up and we have to live with it." Manson is not glossing over or is wrong on his hugely popular internet blog. He says it as it is: a serving of raw, refreshing and honest truth that is missing today. The subtle art of not making a mess is their antidote to the cuddly, sentimental mindset that has infected modern society and corrupted a generation, and rewards its gold medals for just showing up.

Manson argues, supported by both academic research and recent vomit jokes, that improving our lives does not depend on our ability to turn lemons into soda, but on learning how to digest lemons better. Man is imperfect and limited: "Not everyone can be exceptional, there are winners and losers in society, and some things are not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to know our limits and to accept them. Once we accept our fears, mistakes and insecurities, as soon as we stop running away and avoiding and facing painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity and forgiveness that can we are looking for.

There are so many things we don't give a shit, so we need to figure out which ones are really important, Manson points out. Although money is good, it is better to be concerned about what to do with your life because true wealth is based on experience. A real conversation moment in which they grab you by the shoulders and look you into the much-needed eyes, filled with entertaining stories and unholy, inconsiderate humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck * * k is a refreshing slap in the face for a generation of them lead a happy and down to earth life.
