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, weve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Lets be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Mason doesnt sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it isa 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, lets-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 Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life Reviews
Preciso de explicar porque dei uma estrela a este livro no GoodReads apesar dele ter uma boa pontuação na plataforma. Eu não tenho problemas com livros deste género, adoro a temática. Estou sempre em busca de livros inspiradores, originais e criativos. Pensava que este livro seria assim. Estava tão enganada. Há semanas no top de vendas previa ser uma leitura espetacular. Não é, vão por mim. O livro não vale um caracol de tão mau.
Primeiro, onde é que Mark sustenta a sua teoria? Na sua própria ex ...more
you think you're getting a light, irreverent lifestyle/self-help book, but then it's actually just a few good ideas taken from Buddhism and then mixed in with conservative nonsense about "snowflakes," mixed with some casual misogyny and backdoor bragging. A book only a white straight man with rich parents could write.
This was a great book! I've been seeing it everywhere so I wanted to read it.
This book was great at reminding you that you shouldn't care what other people think. It is important to do what you want and what your heart wants. It also reminds you that you don't need to be famous or have a spectacular life to have a great life. This is YOUR life. Do what YOU want!
I was expecting an enjoyable read on not taking things too seriously. Instead I got a collection of banal insights, wrapped in supposedly funny dirty-talk. References to philosophy/literature were reminiscent of an author who just skimmed through "100 ideas in X you need to know" and didn't bother further. They were forced and off-beat especially considering the overall tone, which itself fluctuated between the earnestness of self-help drivel and the tongue-in-cheek of comedy memoirs. Ironically ...more
I'm not actually done yet, but this book is becoming more problematic by the page. In re: false memories and page 128: False memories are absolutely a thing. But when the example you use to illustrate this fact is a 1980's feminist who falsely accused her father of abuse and you follow up with "in the early 1980s and 1990s hundreds of innocent people were wrongly accused of sexual violence under similar circumstances. Many of them went to prison for it" you are being supremely irresponsible. The ...more
I'd review this book but I just don't... What's the phrase?
You can buy the book here.
What a load of self-indulgent, sexist codswallop.
