The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k (audiobook) is Mark Manson’s antidote to the coddling, let’s all ‘feel good’ mindset that has infected our modern society and spoiled generations, rewarding them with gold medals and cups just for showing up. In this generation-defining self-help guide, a rockstar blogger cuts through the prevalent crap to show us how to stop trying to be super “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better and happier individuals. For decades, we have been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich, and fulfilling life. “Fu*k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it.” On his wildly popular internet blog, Mike Manson does not equivocate or sugarcoat. 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 Fck has been at #1 on New York Times Best Seller List for weeks. Over 4 million copies sold worldwide.
Manson makes the argument, which is backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes that improving our lives depends not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach bitter lemons better. Human beings are limited and flawed – “not everybody can be extraordinary, and that there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault.” Mike advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once individuals embrace their fears, faults, and uncertainties, once people stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, they can begin to find the courage, perseverance, responsibility, honesty, curiosity, and forgiveness they seek.
