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, we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is??a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern 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 limited??"not 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 f**k 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 F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives… (més)

An excellent message for this time. He loses a star for completely ignoring privilege. I often found myself asking, "How would someone who has been formed by historic oppression read this?" He may say, "Don't give a f*ck about it," but it's far too easy to say. Perhaps I need to read more of his blog.

That being said, he is right. It's not about caring about nothing, but about choosing what to care about and not giving those things that are not important your concern.

Rather than approaching life as moving from one ambition to the next, accepting mortality and that every choice brings its own series of problems helps centre us to live better in the world.

Sort of a spoiler-it's not really about not giving a f*ck. ( )

I was reminded again of the book and felt compelled to write a review.

Possibly the worst book I’ve ever read, and I’ve read Ayn Rand’s books. It reads like a combination of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations and How to Win Friends and Influence you, but with all the weaknesses and none of the strengths of those two books. It’s self help for edgy incels, written by a rich prick. 0/5 ( )

After having read the book, I honestly don't understand half of the hype that surrounded it's release.

The title draws you in and then Mr. Manson's use of colorful language is meant to shock. The advice given isn't terribly far off from what you might expect from a High school football coach or a stern parent.

All in all, I don't feel that there is anything to gain from reading the book. ( )

First, the title tells all: If you have issues with the F-bomb peppering every other sentence, along with lots of other coarse language, this book will be unreadable for you.

Okay, still here?
Well, it started out gangbusters. Really good, interesting, different.

By the end, however, I was pretty weary of the guy, and I kept thinking, "Gosh, he is SO young." Things he breathlessly reveals about Life seem pretty obvious to me (at over sixty years in).

And I think they also would be to anyone who has ever had even a passing flirtation with Buddhism, especially Zen.

Still, his anecdotes, when not grating with a weirdly self-deprecating egotism ("Let me tell you some MORE ways that I used to be an asshole..") are fresh, sometimes surprising, and often instructive.

It especially might be of interest to people in the counseling or other therapeutic professions, since he does a wonderful job of shredding pop-culture self-help wisdom.

(Or you might want to secretly leave a copy on the doorstop of your favorite pity-party enthusiast).

Along those lines, I liked "If You Meet the Buddha On the Road, Kill Him," by Sheldon Kopp better. Or "Be Here Now," for that matter.

So, my take was that it's pretty good, but by the ending ("And Then You Die"), I rather felt the book had, too. ( )

A good friend of mine recommended this book to me when I was going through a transitional period in my life. I've always been one to worry about this and that, and always worry about what other people think of me.

Well written, snarky, and sarcastic...just the way I like it. Kept me reading on and kept my interest. Probably one of the better self-help books I've come across. Teaches you to accept things as they are and how always chasing more, more, more isn't necessarily the key to a happy life. The author did come off as smug at times, though.

Overall, I enjoyed it, and will be referring to it in the future! ( )
