In it Manson argues that life’s struggles give it meaning, and that the mindless positivity of typical self-help books is neither practical nor helpful. Subtle Art presents an entirely new approach to personal development, from top to bottom. Life is not about getting rid of problems, it’s about finding better problems. It’s not about avoiding failure, it’s about getting better at failure. It’s not about knowing everything, but becoming more comfortable in not knowing anything.

‘Hilarious, vulgar, and immensely thought-provoking. Only read if you’re willing to set aside all excuses and take an active role in living a f*cking better life.’ Steve Kamb, bestselling author of Level Up Your Life and founder of nerdfitness.com
EVERYTHING WE’VE BEEN TOLD ABOUT HOW TO IMPROVE OUR LIVES IS WRONG. NOW SUPERSTAR BLOGGER MARK MANSON TELLS US WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO GET IT RIGHT.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Drawing on academic research and the life experience of breaking the rules, Mark Manson is ready to explode that myth. According to Manson, the key to a good life is the understanding that ‘sometimes shit is f*cked up, and we have to live with it.’
Manson says that instead of turning lemons into lemonade, we should learn to stomach lemons better and stop distracting ourselves from life’s inevitable disappointments by chasing ‘shit’ like money, success, and possessions. It’s time to re-calibrate our values and what it means to be happy: there are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, he says, so we need to figure out which ones really matter.
From the writer whose blog draws two million readers a month and is filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a welcome antidote to the ‘let’s-all-feel-good’ mindset that has infected modern society.
