For decades, we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Mark Manson, however, doesn't sugar-coat or equivocate: "F**k positivity," he says in his wildly popular internet blog. "Let's be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."
Backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, Manson makes the argument that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. It's time to recalibrate what it means to be happy: there are only so many things we can give a f**k about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter.
An antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society, and filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humour, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap in the face for a generation spoiled by being rewarded with gold medals just for showing up.
Probably the best read I've ever had in such a long time. The author manage to get the message delivered to readers (as I felt like I have been exposed for a bit). Recommended if you are currently in a state where you aren't having mental clarity as this book will try to get you see the bigger picture of what's happening around you and be realistic.
A good read
This book helps you to be more practical and be realistic in your life. The writer engages the readers with him till the end. It is useful for youngsters as it tells how to live a balanced life. Mark Manson teaches us to let most of the things go as they are not that worthy but we constantly pay attention to them (sometimes unconsciously) and focus on what truly matters. It changes the whole perspective of your life and especially as teenager when you think of a life full of luxuries without any problem, the writer tells that happiness doesn’t lies in such life. It comes from confronting problems and finding the way to solve them. If you are willing to endure the pain associated with certain happiness, surely you can find it and that is the thing which we must know as everyone here want something according to their own priorities but most of the people don’t want to go through the process to get that. This book helps you to encounter what you try to avoid whether it is any failure or any situation. Writer gave his own examples and experiences to illustrates how life’s struggles give it more meaning which is much better approach than constantly trying to be happy. But overall this was a good book
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
The messages are simply and honestly conveyed with a good dose of humour and self-deprecation. It is well written, and spoken from experience. If you wish to understand better why anxiety often takes too great a hand in your life and are open (truthfully) to how you might change this, then this book is a good place to begin.
