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 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 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.

This is hands down the best book I have ever read, Mansons way of looking at the world, is similar to what most of us think we see, but he conveys it in a way that is undeniable, and boarder lining overwhelming.

An eye opening reality checkThis book needs to be part of school curriculum. Its the kind of book that regularly makes you laugh, not necessarily because what you just read is funny, but rather because you can't believe that you're not as special as you thought you were, and someone is writing about it as if they know you - and god damn does it ever feel good. 10/10 would recommend to anyone..Score: 5/5

I needed this bookThis book came at a time when I needed it the most. I have always been a ‘blunt, to the point, say it like it is person’ but the past few months I was repressing who I am. It started by being involved in a work culture lead by a narcissistic bully and then unravelled as she brought on a ‘mini me’ of herself. The way I dealt with chastising emails, ridiculous self involved social media posts, culture of ‘don’t complain - you’re bringing the rest of us down’, was to keep my head down. I shut-up. I stayed quiet. I ‘ignored’ the best way I could. Until one day, today, I was about 3/4 of the way through this book, and I saw a good friend / colleague get berated for simply questioning the logic of a decision - and I decided enough was enough. Why? Because I heard the words ‘if something is bugging you, confront it’ take action. And I did. And it felt sooo great. I may never change the narcissist, but I can, and I will, be true to me. And stand up for what I believe in. Thank-you for this!!.Score: 5/5

Awesome read!I just began reading (for pleasure) again after finishing school and this was the first book I finished so far. Not only does the author make some great jokes, but he makes a lot of his points simple, without the sugar coating (and I think we all need that). It’s an honest, well-written book and I have recommended it to a couple of people! It really is a self-improvement book rather than a self-help one and I truly enjoy that. If you don’t know the difference between the two, well I’d say this book is a great place to start. Thank you Mark :).Score: 5/5
