I could not have asked for a better set of friends. Thank you, Gloria, for recommending and also for sending me this book.
Now to the review of The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A … you know what!
My thoughts before even starting to read this book were, hmm another obnoxious, entitled millennial who thinks he has figured out what life is about and who does not give a fuck about the world and on his self-discovery journey. Well, I was wrong and soon realized that as I finished chapter one.
Can I just say, if you have never read any book in your entire life on self-development, you should pick up this book ‘The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck’ by Mark Manson. You are welcome.
My favorite parts of the book are definitely the feedbacks from hell where Mark just lets it all out without holding back a single thing. So a little warning, if you are afraid and terrified of confronting the truth or reality in your head, then skip ‘The Feedback From Hell’ part and you should be fine. Although, you will also greatly benefit from reading through those parts.
The book is fully packed from beginning to the end with wit, dark humor and straight up feels like you are speaking with a friend at a bar. Mark literally made this book so friendly and entertaining, yet addressing the things we fear to talk about the most. Self.
Not giving a fuck does not mean being indifferent; it means being comfortable with being different.
The way he describes the problems in relationships and how most of it can be avoided, almost gave me a heart attack because it felt as if Manson was in my last relationship with me. No, he is not saying your life is shit and you are the cause of it but he is saying your life sucks and you are the cause of it. This book attacks you in the safest way possible and shows you exactly how to confront those ugly truths about yourself.
This book will make you uncomfortable, laugh and nod all the way while you keep flipping the pages till you reach the end. Probably the most practical and relatable self-help books out there. I promise you, that this is one of the best books you will ever read, especially as a millennial. A selfish, entitled piece of shit millennial who thinks, fuck everyone and everything.
You are not special and the sooner you realize that, the better for you. You don’t need to give a fuck about things that don’t matter to you. Set your priorities and values straight and give a fuck but not too many fucks. That is what this book is all about and more. The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck is one of the best books I have read in 2018 along with Man’s Search For Meaning by Victor E Frankl.
The point is, most of us struggle throughout our lives by giving too many fucks in situations where fucks do not deserve to be given. We give a fuck about the rude gas station attendant who gave us too many nickels. We give a fuck when a show we liked was canceled on TV. We give a fuck when our coworkers don’t bother asking us about our awesome weekend. We give a fuck when it’s raining and we were supposed to go jogging in the morning.
Fucks given everywhere. Strewn about like seeds in mother-fucking spring time. And for what purpose? For what reason? Convenience? Easy comforts? A pat on the fucking back maybe?
This is the problem, my friend. Read The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck by Mark Manson and thank me later.
