Author and person of the internet Mark Manson (https://markmanson.net) breaks down what it takes to be successful in this world – not giving a fuck.
“To not give a fuck is to stare down life’s most terrifying and difficult challenges and still take action.”
–The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson, Pg.12
Why I liked it
Most “self-help” books that I have read focus on too small of problems so that they do not have a lasting impact on the way that you look at the world or in the pursuit of overhauling your whole outlook ends up leaning on the platitudes that we all already know to be true. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck rejects both and goes straight to the core of why people today are not happy. I am known to be crass myself, so I enjoyed the ribald style of writing that is characteristic of Manson. More importantly, I found myself becoming reflective while reading this book. Between the churlishness were true gems of wisdom about how to live a good life, which I am still incorporating into my own life. The best review I can give this book is that I will have to revisit it again soon.
