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, weve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Lets be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Mason doesnt sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it isa 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, lets-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 limi...

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life Reviews
Preciso de explicar porque dei uma estrela a este livro no GoodReads apesar dele ter uma boa pontuação na plataforma. Eu não tenho problemas com livros deste género, adoro a temática. Estou sempre em busca de livros inspiradores, originais e criativos. Pensava que este livro seria assim. Estava tão enganada. Há semanas no top de vendas previa ser uma leitura espetacular. Não é, vão por mim. O livro não vale um caracol de tão mau.
Primeiro, onde é que Mark sustenta a sua teoria? Na sua própria ex ...more
My sister asked me to get her this and I’ve read it as well. It is basically the Buddha and Sartre giving advice by saying fuck every other word. Not a terrible thing, in itself, but a bit like seeing a play where all the actors are naked, the swearing loses its impact after about the third fuck, and then you’re just left with the advice.
I don’t normally read self-help books – the problem I have with them is the first word, more than the second. We generally all need some sort of help, but that ...more
No he podido ni acabarlo.
Supongo que parte de la culpa es mía, que he visto una portada y un títulos llamativos y me he dejado llevar por el marketing.
A lo mejor hay personas a las que este libro les ayuda a mejorar su vida y que les abre la mente a nuevos horizontes y ¡Ey pues genial! Me alegra que alguien pueda disfrutar de la experiencia de leer este libro, pero no es mi caso por 3 motivos.
1. Discrepo con el 90% de lo que se dice en este libro.
2. La falta de bibliografía y documentación. "Es ...more
Ego driven rantings
Wish I could say I couldn't give a fu#k about spending £10.99 on this serious heap of rubbish, but yes, i do give a fu#k that this ego driven, talentless author swindled me out of money for a heap of rubbish.
He is probably having a great old laugh at the fact that his mantra `dont try` has resulted in an awful written book, full of cliches, calling reader `dumbass`, referring to us wanting to feel jennifer aniston`s t#ts , and bigging himself up generally. He probably finds ...more
My, my! What a catchy title!
I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so I picked this up. And now that I'm done? Well, I agree with everything Manson says, but (like other reviewers have mentioned) everything he's written about is common sense stuff.
Is that revolutionary?
What does it say about our society in general that any of what he's saying is...well, remotely necessary to say!?
When the basic premise of a bestseller is that you should stop comparing yourself to what you see on tel ...more
I went into this admittedly with quite some skepticism and entitlement— “what is this going to teach me that I don’t already know?”— but The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is truly one of the most ground-shaping nonfiction books I’ve read so far. It will and can change a perspective, a life. And as such, this is the perfect book to give to your loved ones on holidays, birthdays...
It made me rethink all the times I ever gave a fuck over some of the most irrelevant things in hindsight. It made me ...more
I don't read self-help. I simply don't believe in the self-help genre. If you need a book to help you live your life you have bigger problems than whatever brought you to that book. That may seem harsh but its just my opinion and you are free to ignore it.
Since I don't read self-help, you may be asking "Erin, Why did you read this book?
Blame Popsugar. I'm doing the Popsugar 2017 Reading challenge and needed to read a book from a genre I don't usually read. As you can see if you look at my book ...more
I was expecting an enjoyable read on not taking things too seriously. Instead I got a collection of banal insights, wrapped in supposedly funny dirty-talk. References to philosophy/literature were reminiscent of an author who just skimmed through "100 ideas in X you need to know" and didn't bother further. They were forced and off-beat especially considering the overall tone, which itself fluctuated between the earnestness of self-help drivel and the tongue-in-cheek of comedy memoirs. Ironically ...more
