For decades, we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Mark Manson, however, doesn't sugar-coat or equivocate: "F**k positivity," he says in his wildly popular internet blog. "Let's be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."

Backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, Manson makes the argument that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. It's time to recalibrate what it means to be happy: there are only so many things we can give a f**k about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter.

An antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society, and filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humour, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap in the face for a generation spoiled by being rewarded with gold medals just for showing up.

About the Author

Mark Manson has spent a number of years studying the academic research on things such as happiness, passion, goals and relationships, publishing his views online as well as in Forbes, CNN, Vice, TIME, Vox and The Huffington Post. Mark shares his philosophy through articles on his wildly popular Internet blog markmanson.net. Mark lives and writes in New York.

I enjoyed this book and the intention of the author to share his personal philosophy with others. He shares his experiences and pain with beautiful profanity and humour, but he remains authentic. I don't share or agree with all his insights or analysis but I appreciate the effort he took to share his unique perspective with others. He is a traveller into the realms of the complexity of being human, and I respect that.

          This book is life-changing and can be instantly applied to your own life. Such a great theory that we only have a limited amount of f's to give in this life so stop focusing on what doesn't matter.

                Self help books get dreary and boring after a while. The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F is the kind of book that is easy to read because it speaks to you like a human. It uses my kind of everyday foul language but in a really polite way of being like "hey dude, get your sheet together". This book is brilliant.

                  Its great for a pick me up when i have had a bad day. Puts things in perspective and gives me a laugh. Its abrasive and straight to the point which is something i think we all need. Not many books make me laugh outloud but this definetely did

                        Provokes self reflection and ones need to re assess their values to things that actually matter in life. Best book i have read in a while, highly reccommend.

                        I enjoyed this book and the intention of the author to share his personal philosophy with others. He shares his experiences and pain with beautiful profanity and humour, but he remains authentic. I don't share or agree with all his insights or analysis but I appreciate the effort he took to share his unique perspective with others. He is a traveller into the realms of the complexity of being human, and I respect that.
