The Subtle Art Of Not Giving a F*CK Summary

A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

We have listened for decades that positive thinking is the key to becoming rich and happy.

Mark Manson seems to disagree. In The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, he shows us that to improve our lives we must learn to accept that we are limited and fail all the time.

Not everyone can be extraordinary or exceptional at everything, and there is no problem in that! Manson advises us to accept our limitations and our fears to find courage and perseverance.

We must find out what really matters to us and what our values are. If you’ve ever read self-help books that promise you can improve your life if you just think positively and found it all too dumb, this book is for you!

Sometimes things go wrong, and we need to learn to deal with them!

The author shows us how to use our failures in our favor. If you are looking for new and completely different ideas out there, read this microbook!

Mark MansonManson begins “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” book with the story of a man who for most of his life was a complete failure. Society labeled him a loser.

This man, Charles Bukowski, achieved success in his career as a writer, but that did not stop him from being a loser. In his tomb is inscribed the following message: “Do not try”.

The story of Bukowski is present in many books, films, and seminars that preach to overcome your difficulties and become great.

You cannot give up. Never giving up has become a cliché of the self-help market and continues to be repeated to exhaustion.

Manson tells us that this positive advice for self-help is actually contributing to your unhappiness because it makes clear all that you do not have, essentially saying that to improve, you must first feel awful about who you are.
