#1 New York Times BestsellerOver 3 million copies soldIn 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 modern 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.
Since the first self-help book I read -- and I have read quite a few -- I have always had the same problem. I would get distracted by the stories in them. I would read, and my mind would just wander, and I would start to think how I would have reacted to the situation I was reading about or how I would have tried something different. The problem is that as my mind was wandering (and wondering) I was still reading, and before you know it I would be three pages past. I literally had no idea what I had just read. It became more and more frustrating, so I got to the point where I asked if there were any books I could read that just go straight to the point! That is when I started to write my first guide. I wanted to be able to relate something I was going through, but not bore or go too deeply into it. We live in a world where we are looking for instant satisfaction, so this is what I came up with. I hope you can relate to some of the sections, and maybe one was able to spark within you the desire to actually make the change you have been wanting to make.
This is a book summary of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F - k by Mark Manson.

The Art of Not Giving a F--k holds a special place in my heart. It's the culmination of so much knowledge, wisdom and experience I've acquired over the years. It is for everyone, including myself. I feel it has truly empowering and actionable information that will most certainly enhance your life. I also find myself consistently applying more and more of what is discussed since I began writing this book. I hope this work sparks something within you. I hope it acts as a catalyst for setting you on the path of empowerment, becoming the best version of yourself, having fun, and spreading joyfulness to others. I wrote this book because I believe it contains crucial messages that will enhance our experience of life. I struggled a lot with fear of all kinds until recently. I cared way too much about the opinions of others, and this suppressed my true essence. But through a lot of self-work, inner exploration, and self-improvement in every aspect of life, I feel liberated and empowered. I let my awesome out, no f--ks given. This book is a combination of my knowledge/wisdom/experiences, the knowledge/wisdom/experiences of others, and reverse engineering the mind-sets of people I deeply admire. There is so much out there, so much to learn, so much to experience. This is my collage of applied knowledge, my mosaic of wisdom and experience. This is my gift to the world. And I present it to you with a big, beaming smile as I write this. I wish you a life filled with peace, love, happiness, health, learning, and most importantly fun.

Book summary overview: Mark Manson cuts through the clichés of the self-help industry and depicts life for what it is: a series of misadventures and failures that leads to death. He uses crude humor, some wisdom he stumbled on while he was high on acid, and tales of rock stars and deadbeats to diagnose the human condition and offer practical tips for living a good life. His approach is immensely enjoyable and oddly reassuring.
