Description

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*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, 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*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. 

Manson makes the argument, backed by both 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*ck 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*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

blabla book telling stories

the first chapter has the most numerous use I've ever heard of the f word for no reason. one in each sentence.
then the other chapters are a set of stories where the author tried to make them look deep but they are very silly.
Don't waste your time on this book, many better books exist for you..

Changing Life Book

By far one of the best book I read lately. Both the author and the narrator did an excellent job. Many thanks.

A steady reminder

This book, in my opinion, is to be read and understood at least once. Then, it’s like breathing a wave of renewed fresh air anytime your mind gets lost in its wandering experience. Keeps your mind clear of f*cks and readjusts it to its track.

The best book on Life ever written

So much insight it should cripple you.
if you feel you have gotten nothing from this book, read it or listen to it again. it should make you wonder about your existence, your choices, how you give a shit about shits that really don't matter not to face Life (or death?) And its trivialities. it should instead get you to focus on what truly matters, to you: Building an empire, a family, or traveling - by keeping (as the Stoics did) death in mind, you won't be here forever. So, what are you gonna do? with the unique life you've been given.

That's the essence to me of this book.

You shouldn't give a f*ck about this book

This a compilation of very common stories. if you think you can get something out of this book, well think again. I learnt nothing from it, not because I knew everything already, but because this is empty (and a ripoff of Buddhism)

Okay read

The book tells the story and the experience of the author and he’s view/deductions of it.
Often are things we hear from elderlies on how life is fleeting and family is important..
Also the ideas in chapters were kind of all over the place... meh...good effort

A book for 20-somethings, but not me

I think The Subtle Art... might have had more impact upon me if I was 20-something instead of 59-years-old. The language isn't really an issue (it just becomes another word that doesn't even seem to have much meaning); it's more that Manson is repetitive and doesn't offer anything original that most people haven't learned for themselves in a few decades of experience. For me, the same ideas are expressed much more elegantly, cogently, and thoroughly in The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking by Oliver Burkeman.

The author doesn't give a 'F*ck' about your time

I think their is some merit to the ideas of Mark Manson, but they do not give enough content for a whole book, which was rather a waste of time. The first parts of the book were interesting, but later on it was just dragging on and on with no real content. Most of the writing is &quot; I think&quot; rather than &quot;I know&quot; - there are rarely examples or evidence. It's like a living-room chat with a friend.
You could probably sum this book up in a 20 min TED talk without losing anything that matters...

AKA common sense, and buddhism reframed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No

Would you recommend The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck to your friends? Why or why not?

Not really, most are smarter than that

What aspect of Roger Wayne’s performance would you have changed?

He was the best part about the book

Did The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to disconnect from my Social Media

Any additional comments?

This is really basic, simple shit. I can imagine if you have no familiarity with the basic principles of Buddhism and Taoism, you might dig this. Its basic philosophy rephrased with significantly more uses of the word Fuck.

Didn't find value in the content

I feel like the book assumes the reader is a pessimistic looser. I constantly found myself getting pat on the back to tell me life doesn't have to be that bad. I'm my case I'm really optimistic and I didn't find value for me in this book . This book however could be a really good read for people that see the glass half empty

Using the F* word does not turn trite and obvious cliches into insights. If you like being shouted at by someone who thinks he’s smarter than you are, you might like this book .

Take an intro to philosophy class instead...read Plato...something with depth. This book is watered down bs...not worth the time or money.

Interesting, but lacking

Some interesting thoughts, but lacking depth.

Don't see what all the great reviews are about. Not something I'll listen to again. Not a total waste of time, but close to it.

NGAF - Not as simple as it sounds

Part of me bought this book because I thought it was funny and quirky, part of me bought it because I was sick of giving a f*^k about so many little things that ate up my day, I didn't have any energy for the things that really mattered.

This book isn't about throwing everything to the wind and turning in to a useless blob. It's about giving f^*ks where f^*ks deserve to be given, placing your f^*ks where they're going to do you good instead of drag you down. I highly recommend it, but if you pass on it, I really don't give a f^*k.

Ach du meine Güte....

Vielleicht hätte ich mir das denken können: Der Titel ist... nun ja, nicht gerade subtil. Aber da es sich um einen Bestseller handelt, und man mit eben diesem Titel durchaus ein sehr gutes Buch schreiben könnte, habe ich den Versuch gewagt. Und schon weit vor der Hälfte aufgegeben. Der dünn gesäte Inhalt dreht sich ständig um sich selbst und dann auch noch im Kreis. Das Buch lebt davon, dass der Autor alle (gefühlte) 30 Sekunden irgendetwas mit "Fuck!" sagt. Ist es denkbar, dass manche Leser/Hörer diese Wortwahl so revolutionär finden, dass ihnen gar nicht auffällt, dass es kaum einen wirklichen Inhalt gibt? Warum sonst ist dies ein Bestseller geworden? Da bin ich überfragt. Vielleicht schaffen Sie es ja, es sich bis zum Ende anzuhören. Und vielleicht hat der Autor sich ja alle Lebensweisheit für eben dieses Ende aufgehoben, und geben Sie dem Buch dann begeisterte 5 Sterne in allen Kategorien. Wenn ja: Melden Sie sich doch mal. ;-)

i didn't finish the audiobook because it was to annoying. The amount which the f-word is used was unbearable. I just couldn't stand it any longer.

Ganz nett

Kurz gesagt ein Lebenskünstler der sich über andere Lebenskünstler auslässt.
Ein zwei ganz clevere Punkte und auch einiges an Gelaber. Der Autor schreibt fast schon autobiographisch. Aber interessant genug um es bis zum Ende durchzuhören.

Der Anfang ist extrem gut, Story wird mir später etwas zu sentimental und hat nicht wirklich mit dem Intro oder dem Titel zu tun.

Spectaculur book with amazing narration

This is one book that everyone needs to read, not the mushy gushy positivity crap that the market is awash with. This book is straightforward, crude, and speaks to you. You connect with it, you connect with The Disappointment Panda and the Self Awareness Onion.

With every chapter being a treat in its own way, it's the final chapter that serves like a perfect dessert to the book.

A must read, a must listen, must share book!

Disappointing

I was expecting something more radical considering the title. But it turned out to be more about acceptance of your mediocrity and giving up on sense of entitlement.

It reflects where in life the author is at. I think he's grown up and in the settling down phase. It is a good read for people who are in their early 20s and mid-30s and above.

Was für Jüngere

Mit Anfang 30 schreibt der Autor über Sinn des Lebens und Tod? Einiges ist gut, vieles banal und manches wird der Autor in zehn, zwanzig oder gar 40 Jahren mglw auch wieder ganz anders sehen.
Nichts für Leute, die etwas älter sind. Wer Anfang 20 ist, erfährt durchaus was fürs Leben. Das 1. Kapitel kann man wegen endloser F Wörter auch überspringen. Gut gelesen. Insgesamt etwas "overmarketed" eben typisch amerikanisch. Es sei ihm gegönnt. Scheint ein anständiger Kerl geworden zu sein. Ich würde es jedoch nicht nochmals hören.
