The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit that I wouldn't usually pick up a book with profanity in its title. But I kept reading great reviews about this book so finally bought it and am very glad I did so.
Although the profanity continues throughout the book, that and the irreverence works with the author's style and message, which is that we have to choose what we care about. If we care (or as the author calls it, "give a f*k") about everything, we really don't care about anything, nor will we get anywhere.
Some of his messages that really resonate with me are that happiness comes from solving problems, failure and pain are part of the process and the way forward, learn to say no, and choose your values carefully since your beliefs create your reality.
It's a quick and very thought-provoking read that I believe will resonate with most people at some level. I highly recommend it.
