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 weve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy rich life Fk positivity Mark Manson says Lets be honest shit is fked and we have to live with it In his wildly popular Internet blog Mason doesnt sugarcoat or equivocate He tells it like it isa dose of raw refreshing honest truth that is sorely lacking today The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fk is his antidote to the coddling lets-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American 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 limitednot 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 fk 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 Fk is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them truly lead contented grounded lives
