Everything we've been told about how to improve our lives in wrong. Now superstar blogger Mark Manson tells us what we need to do to get it right."An in-your-face guide to living with integrity and finding happiness in sometimes-painful places. This book, full of counter-intuitive suggestions that often make great sense, is a pleasure to read ... A good yardstick by which self-improvement books should be measured." KirkusFor decades, we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Drawing on academic research and the life experience that comes from breaking the rules, Mark Manson is ready to explode that myth. The key to a good life, according to Manson, is the understanding that 'sometimes shit is f*cked up and we have to live with it'.Manson says that instead of trying to turn lemons into lemonade, we should learn to stomach lemons better, and stop distracting ourselves from life's inevitable disappointments 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 filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humour, 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.PRAISE FOR THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK"Resilience, happiness and freedom come from knowing what to care about--and most importantly, what not to care about. This is a masterful, philosophical and practical book that will give readers the wisdom to be able to do just that." Ryan Holiday, New York Times bestselling author"Mark's ability to dig deep and offer amazing, yet counter-intuitive, insight into the challenges of life makes him one of my favorite writers, and this book is his best work yet." Matt Kepnes, New York Times bestselling author"This book hits you like a much-needed slap in the face from your best friend: 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***ing better life." Steve Kamb, bestselling author and founder of NerdFitness.com""The opposite of every other book. Don't try. Give up. Be wrong. Lower your standards. Stop believing in yourself. Follow the pain. Each point is profoundly true, useful, and more powerful than the usual positivity. Succinct but surprisingly deep, I read it in one night." Derek Sivers, Founder of CD Baby and author of Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur
