The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck Summary-
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson. In the book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck,” Mark Manson follows the road not taken by presenting a set of outwardly strange strategies to living a good life. His eventual proposal is that people need to begin caring less about everything.
Instead, the key to living a good life is in individuals perceptive what matters to them and not wasting energy stressing over every modest thing. He then proceeds to edify us on how to move forward by going backwards.
Manson strongly believes that the never-ending search of a flawless life, fueled by today’s picture-perfect social media standards, is accountable for many of the psychological illnesses that have become uncontrolled. The book culminates in a termination that we need to look beyond ourselves. Drop the entitled airs, and clinch the viciousness and doubts before we can live better lives.
For decades, we’ve been told that optimistic thinking is the key to a happy and rich life. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.”
In his madly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat. He tells it like it is—a dosage of raw, uplifting, frank truth that is deeply missing today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his solution to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good state of mind that has impure modern culture and flawed a generation, satisfying them with gold medals just for showing up.
