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, 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, s**t 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 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

    By Marshall St John
    Though I enjoyed this book for the most part, I found the writing to be quite uneven. Contrary to some readers, I loved being assaulted with the foul language at the beginning of the book and laughed out loud several times. The swearing came with real counterintuitive insights too (e.g. the “backwards law”, etc.). The foul language really served as a shock that wakes you up as you read. The more I read, the less I felt this jolt. It started to read much more like Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning”; not a bad thing in and of itself, but lost its shocking steam for sure. I laughed less too. That being said, Manson’s insights are right up there with Covey’s seven habits. He provides very solid advice with personal stories and human candor.

    A minor waste of time. There are so many better self help books. “The four agreements” “you can heal your life”.

    Great book. This book gave me a different perspective on life. I feel that many people judge the title, but the title is just trying to say what and what not to let effect you in life. Truly an inspiring page turner. If you are an unhappy or lost person in life, I encourage you to read this book. Thank you Mark Mason for showing me what is important and what truly matters in life.
  • What a great read

    By Glitter is gold
    Talk about a sudden realization of things in life we can change to make the load easier! I just finished the book and am going to read it over again. I feel as though any and everyone can relate somehow to this book.

    Very informative
  • Transformative

    By brianprince1
    This book has been one of the most transformative books I’ve ever read. I am at a place right now where I absolutely needed this book. I don’t just have a changed mind, I have an upgraded perspective on everything from relationships to my outlook on my personal life values. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review. Take your time and read this one. I think I’ll put this right next to The Autobiography of Malcolm X and The Purpose Driven Life on my bookshelf 📚
  • Great stuff

    By Iceman255
    Very motivating! I came across this author listening to the Knowledge for Men podcasts. Marks writing style and focused content really gave me some great direction. I quickly found my thoughts refocusing with some of the content and direction provided in this book. His blog has also been a source of inspiration for me as I read this book. Great stuff folks, don’t hesitate to give this one a read!
