The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck


Dit boek is de Engelse versie:

In this self-help guide that defines a generation, a superstar blogger cuts through the nonsense to illustrate how we can stop striving to be positive all the time in order to truly become better, happier individuals. For decades, we've been fed the idea that positive thinking is the key to a happy, prosperous life. "Forget positivity," says Mark Manson. "Let's be honest, things are messed up and we have to deal with it." In his immensely popular internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or beat around the bush. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking in today's world. "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" is his antidote to the coddling, feel-good mindset that has pervaded American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold stars just for showing up. Manson argues, supported by both academic research and well-timed humor, that improving our lives doesn't depend on our ability to turn bad situations into good ones, but rather on learning to handle tough situations better. Human beings are flawed and limited—not everyone can be exceptional, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is neither fair nor your fault. Manson advises us to acknowledge and accept our limitations. Once we embrace our fears, flaws, and uncertainties, once we stop running away and avoiding and start facing painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we desire. Manson makes it clear that there are only so many things we can care about, so we need to determine which ones truly matter. While money is nice, caring about how you live your life is better, because true wealth comes from experience. A much-needed wake-up call, filled with engaging stories and blunt, unapologetic humor, "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" is a refreshing wake-up call for a generation, helping them lead contented, grounded lives.
