It’s not the first book I finished this year, but it is the first self-help book of the year. It’s a book that did not disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really liked it. I did speed it on the Kindle; it would be worth going back for a second read in the paper version so I could annotate and take notes while reading it.
“The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” is a self-help book by Mark Manson that focuses on values and how we assign meaning and importance to things in our lives. It encourages readers to embrace the idea that not everything is worth caring about and that we should be more selective in what we give our attention and energy to.
The book provides an exciting and valuable perspective on personal growth and well-being. Manson writes in a conversational, straightforward style, which makes the book accessible and easy to read. He uses a lot of personal anecdotes and humorous examples to illustrate his points, which helps keep the book engaging.
One of the book’s strengths is its emphasis on taking responsibility for our own lives and choices. Manson encourages readers to own their decisions and not blame external factors for their problems. He also stresses the importance of facing and accepting negative emotions rather than trying to suppress or avoid them.
Some readers may find the book’s message simplistic or even cynical. The book sometimes advocates for apathy or indifference, which could be off-putting to some. Additionally, some of the language and humor in the book may appeal to only some readers.
If I had to give it stars, I’d give it a five out of five. While The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck may not be for everyone, it did provide a thought-provoking perspective on personal growth and happiness. It has great potential to be a helpful and inspiring read for those looking to take more control over their lives and prioritize what truly matters.
