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.


  • Don’t let it trick you in to buying a useless book

    Not worth the money !
  • Better than the free sample

    By BrainXP
    I read the free sample available on iBooks which was full of ‘fook this, fook that, and fook you and fook everything’ (that’s how I read it really) and thought no way I was going to read this had many good reviews so I decided to go against my first impression... and surprisingly the book is actually well thought with interesting concepts which made me question my perception of life. Five stars and I guess as the saying goes “don’t judge the book by its cover” or in this case the free sample full of ‘fooking’ things.
  • Best read for people who have interest in sociology and psychology

  • A book you will come back to again and again.

    By AndyRad
    Wow, such a deep book yet humorous. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I highlighted far more paragraphs to come back to in this book than any other ‘self help’ book I have read. And I read a lot!

  • An absolute must read

    By SJPurdie
    Making a conscious decision of what is important has already made such a difference in my life
  • Wow!

    By adamjasonmorris
    Amazing book that is written well and does exactly what it says, explores a fine art of becoming happy. Would recommend to anyone.
  • Honestly, the best 'Self Help' Book EVER

    By liannamarie87
    I've read a lot of self help books over the years, but none like this one. Marks written this so well that it's genuinely had a positive effect on my life in that I've taken in what he has said and I've put it into practice and would you believe it... He's right! Would absolutely recommend this (already have convinced my friends to buy it!) to anyone, particularly if you are going through a hard time.
