The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Everything we've been told about how to improve our lives is wrong. Now superstar blogger Mark Manson tells us what we need to do to get it right.

For decades, we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Drawing on academic research and the life experience that comes from breaking the rules, Mark Manson is ready to explode that myth. The key to a good life, according to Manson, is the understanding that 'sometimes shit is f*cked up and we have to live with it.'

Manson says that instead of trying to turn lemons into lemonade, we should learn to stomach lemons better, and stop distracting ourselves from life's inevitable disappointments chasing 'shit' like money, success and possessions. It's time to re-calibrate our values and what it means to be happy: there are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, he says, so we need to figure out which ones really matter.

From the writer whose blog draws two million readers a month and filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humour, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a welcome antidote to the 'let's-all-feel-good' mindset that has infected modern society.

RATINGS & REVIEW

9/04/2017 12:04:10 AM - Keryn
A Must Read!
A thoroughly engaging read that should be mandatory in life today. I picked it up because I am sick of being told to think positively. I do think positively but that doesn't mean I don't see all the bad stuff in the world today. I’ve had kicks in the gut that make me see life the way it is and I have to say that what I got from this book is that it’s okay to see life the way it is. Perhaps I liked this book because it tells my story but it was refreshing to know that I am not the only one. There are many truths in this book and I couldn’t put it down. It's about what life throws at us and how our perception makes the difference. If it doesn’t help you to learn about yourself it will help you to learn about your family, friends and co-workers. The very least it will do is make you feel alive! The world would be a better place if everyone read this book and grasped its concept. This is the first book review I've ever written anywhere, thanks Mark Manson!

OK
Nothing special, basically I felt like the money I paid to buy the book was funding the authors great life! There were some good ideas that values are were we should be focusing our efforts in life, but apart from that most other ideas were pretty logical.

Okay read
Great title and entertaining opening chapter unfortunately dwindled away into little of substance as the book progressed.

I absolutely loved this book for how realistic and authentic the author is. Mark's writing style is quite raw and humorous, and is a fantastic read to help you gain a broader perspective of the world around us. We often become stuck in our own life problems which can cause us to spiral down - The subtle art of not giving a f*ck is a great reminder that we can work through any challenge we face, and convert our thinking and actions to better ourselves and achieve our goals.
