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.

Had me laughing out loud

I listened to the audiobook from the library, and then bought a copy. A bit 'blokey', and not Australian, but a thoughtful read nevertheless. And it made me laugh! Mark Manson has a special way with words and wisdom.

An absolutely unreal book, completely different perspective

5

This book is a reality check to everything you thought to have been important before, it will make you re-think every single aspect of your life that you thought had mattered but in reality it doesn't matter at all. Overall it was a great read and really takes a completely different approach to any self bettering book I have ever read . Defiantly recommend reading !

Do not be put off by the title. Yes, the f word is used a bit in chapter 1 but please understand that its use underpins an important message in his book - the need to identify and live by those values that make us truly human. It has changed my perspective on what things I need to value in my life and to act accordingly. Mark Manson's ideas are perceptive even though some may regard his writing manner brash. This goes beyond yet another 'self-help' book - Manson challenges our assumptions but he does not leave us out to dry. This is a true guide to reality checking, uncomfortable at first but truly enlightening

Without a doubt the best self help book I've ever read.

Would totally recommend this book to anyone. It really is the best self help book I've ever read. My husband who suffers from mental health issues is now reading it & getting so much from it. Mark Manson says it how it is, life is not always a happy place & some people have values that make them miserable in life. Easy to read, funny & very practical.

I liked reading this but I think I was expecting more of a self help screw the world and here's how kind of thing. I found it easy to read and interesting enough it just wasn't what I was hoping it would be.
