#1 New York Times Bestseller

Over 1 million copies sold

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, s**t 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.

    The author does a great job at getting below surface. He exposes how shallowness and entitlement can creep into our lives and wreak havoc, only IF WE LET IT. Throughout the book, he dissects his most eye opening experiences. This guy is open, honest and brave. I give it four stars because some themes in this book are repetitive, nevertheless it is effective and in SOME case necessary.
  • Not for me.

    This book is well written if he wrote it drunk and sitting at a bar ( which it may have been). I read a lot that I don’t agree with but I’ve never read a book and literally hated the author at the end. Perhaps a nice children’s book written by a self admitted drunk who spent his youth high and had to spend his 20s learning what he missed. The story where he actually watched his drunk and high best friend walk to his death and the lesson he learned was to “live for now”. How about the lesson should be to help others who are in peril. Selfish. Incredible. Icky human.
  • Disappointing

    I have no idea how this got a book deal. There is nothing to be taken away from the book outside of the concepts in which the author has borrowed himself. Do not waste your time.
  • Great read!

    I was very excited to read this book because of all the hype I’ve heard about it. But it was tough to finish, I was so bored! It did have some good advice about perception. I would still recommend reading for yourself!
