#1 New York Times Bestseller

Over 1 million copies sold

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, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, s**t is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a 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, let’s-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 limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

    I hates reading and I’m not the person to handover a book to and expect him to read. I’m more of a visual/movie kind of a person. This is my first ever book that I’ve read in my life and surprisingly finished it, cause i guess i needed to hear all of that. I just love reading now. Books are my new best friend.
  • I needed this book

    This book came at a time when I needed it the most. I have always been a ‘blunt, to the point, say it like it is person’ but the past few months I was repressing who I am. It started by being involved in a work culture lead by a narcissistic bully and then unravelled as she brought on a ‘mini me’ of herself. The way I dealt with chastising emails, ridiculous self involved social media posts, culture of ‘don’t complain - you’re bringing the rest of us down’, was to keep my head down. I shut-up. I stayed quiet. I ‘ignored’ the best way I could. Until one day, today, I was about 3/4 of the way through this book, and I saw a good friend / colleague get berated for simply questioning the logic of a decision - and I decided enough was enough. Why? Because I heard the words ‘if something is bugging you, confront it’ take action. And I did. And it felt sooo great. I may never change the narcissist, but I can, and I will, be true to me. And stand up for what I believe in. Thank-you for this!!

    Overall the book was good, but it wasn’t as if every chapter was mind-blowing. There are a few key messages and strong chapters that make the whole book worth reading. Definitely a change in perspective and a nice reminder that everyone is going through the same thing.
  • Great book

    It’s ridiculous how much this book opened my eyes. You must read it. Everyone should read it. It should be in high-school curriculum as a mandatory read to graduate.
