Description

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*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Whether you’re laid off, looking to level up, or totally reinventing your career, when you’re looking for a new job, you can only spend so many hours polishing your resume and scanning LinkedIn before you burn out. While Manson pats himself on the back for this gem, I can't help but think of Emerson, “Its the not the Destination, It's the journey.Manson's cheeky but thoughtful opinions combine with in-depth advice in such sections as "You're Wrong About Anything (But So Am I)" and "How To Be a Little Less Certain of Yourself” (hint: “if it’s down to me being screwed up, or everybody else being screwed up, it is far, far, far more likely that I’m the one who’s screwed up”).

This was done a bit with the concept of action leading to motivation and even something that simple was helpful.While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. Manson encourages readers to embrace their fears and flaws and to prioritize personal growth over external validation. Like a fine wine, our fucks must age into a fine vintage, only uncorked and given on the most special fucking occasions. Blogger and author Mark Manson's second book is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck: A Counterintuitive Guide to Living a Good Life.

Controversial title aside, the book isn't about just not giving a damn, but about focusing WHAT to not give a damn about. Summer means different things to different people, depending on their age, their life situation, their life goals—and their reading habits. I consider this book my bible: I read certain parts every now and then to maintain my self improvement, it gives me solace during times where I'm feeling down, and I harrass my Instagram followers by posting snippets of the pages.The book does take a while to pick up, with the early chapters focusing on examples of people who you may or may not relate to, or even care about. And we need to get over this ridiculous idea that at some point we'll get to sigh a big sigh of relief because our fairytale Happily Ever After has arrived.

And when he's not talking about himself or his sexual exploits, he's mansplaining Eastern philosophy and reminding us that the key to happiness is the acceptance of our own death, which is the only thing I'm thinking about after finishing this book. Having better values creates better problems to solve, and those achievements will lead to a legitimately improved life. There are only so many things we can care about so we need to figure out which ones really matter ~~ sorry ~~ There are only so many things we can give a fuck about so we need to figure out which ones really matter. If you’re avoiding your problems or think you don’t have any problems, then you’re going to make yourself miserable. Ultimately, I am settling on 3 stars because there are still some values that I agree with and will take away from this book (and hope other people will too), but not for some of the others, and certainly not with the author’s writing voice.Not denying your own flaws by redirecting the blame onto other people when challenged (many people are guilty of this). Manson persuasively argues that not caring about everything and everyone is the key to finding genuine happiness and purpose. Actor and voice-over pro Roger Wayne captures most of Manson’s oppositional energy, and he narrates with a lively engagement that only occasionally sounds overdone.
