The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F***

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F***: A Counterintuitive Approach To Living A Good Life By Mark Manson

So I read this book a while ago now but I thought I would let you know what I thought. To be honest my first read in quite a long time

and I LOVE IT.

It is an easy read and super relevant to my life at the moment. It looks at your own life and finding what is important to you and letting go of anything that is not.

Mark Mason turns what you thought about life upside down, F*** happiness, F*** positivity because sometimes life sucks and you just have to keep pushing through. The want, No NEED for life to be this idea of ‘perfect’ all the time is beyond reasonable and you need to F*** it all and choose what is important to you.

9 chapters in 209 pages, each talks about your happiness and life values with hilarious titles.

Chapter 1: Don’t Try

Chapter 2: Happiness Is a Problem

Chapter 3: You Are Not Special

Chapter 4: The Value of Suffering

Chapter 5: You Are Always Choosing

Chapter 6: You’re Wrong About Everything

Chapter 7: Failure Is the Way Forward

Chapter 8: The Importance of Saying No

Chapter 9: And Then You Die

Manson states “Once we embrace our fears, faults and uncertainties – once we stop running from and avoiding, and start confronting painful truths – we can begin to find the courage and confidence we desperately seek.”

He asks the question of “What problem do you want to have?” instead of telling you to fix your problems as he believes there will always be an endless series of problems in life which is why instead he says, “What are the problems that excite you? and What problems are you willing to make sacrifices for?” otherwise how do you expect to be content.

This is the perfect book to read if you are struggling to find your way in life and even if you’re not this is an entertaining and revitalising outlook on life and a MUST read for anyone and everyone. Take a little time to yourself and you might just find out something new.

My next read is The Barefoot Investor, and I am so excited to gain more knowledge towards sorting myself out financially! I will let you know what I think too!
