The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

Mark Manson
Self-help and Personal growth


If you have ever read one of those self-help books that promises that you can improve your life just by thinking positively—and thought to yourself “What a load of shit”—then this book is for you! The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck is a thoroughly refreshing change of pace from the saccharine world of self-love psychology that has dominated the personal development world for decades. Sometimes life just really sucks and we cannot run away from that. Instead, Mark Manson uses his years of experience coupled with academic research to show us how to run toward our pain – and how to make failure, suffering and even death work for us rather than against us. So if you are looking for something completely new and in Manson’s own words, “personal development advice that doesn’t suck,” this is it.
