    My sister asked me to get her this and I?ve read it as well. It is basically the Buddha and Sartre giving advice by saying fuck every other word. Not a terrible thing, in itself, but a bit like seeing a play where all the actors are naked, the swearing loses its impact after about th...

    I'm not actually done yet, but this book is becoming more problematic by the page. In re: false memories and page 128: False memories are absolutely a thing. But when the example you use to illustrate this fact is a 1980's feminist who falsely accused her father of abuse and you follow...

    I have mixed emotions on this. I was totally into reading it and it seemed great at first, but truthfully, for me, the best chapters were the last two. It's a positive message, but glad I didn't pay for it as it felt repetitious to me. I listened to it on audible and enjoyed th...

    I think The Subtle Art... might have had more impact upon me if I was 20-something instead of 59-years-old. The language isn't really an issue (it just becomes another word that doesn't even seem to have much meaning); it's more that Manson is repetitive and doesn't offer anything orig...

    ?Giving too many fucks is bad for you.? The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, Mark Manson Where to begin? Well for starters, Mark Manson is a real douche. There has never been a better husband than Mark Manson. Why? He doesn't put up with bullshit. If his wife looks like...

    My, my! What a catchy title! I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so I picked this up. And now that I'm done? Well, I agree with everything Manson says, but (like other reviewers have mentioned) everything he's written about is common sense stuff. Is that revolutionary...

    I'm not one for self-help books, but this one spoke to me: "The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one's negative experience is itself a positive experience." I don't know how to review this book without typing...

    Based on the title, I was pretty stoked for this, and the introductory essay explaining the author's Not Giving a F*ck theory made a lot of sense to me and made me really happy. Essentially, he says that the internet and the media demand that we give a f*ck about everything, but we onl...

    I knew after the first chapter that I probably wasn't the intended audience for this book. Most of it was sort of a "duh" for me, but I continued on in hopes I would learn something new...WOW, this author is SO self-indulgent. He misses no opportunity to remind us about what a complete...

    A lot of necessary to hear hard truths. There is a distinction between what the title implies and what Manson intends. Manson is essentially inviting us to only care about what?s important and let the rest take care of itself. I?ve been accused of indifference or ?living in...

    ? DNF at 29% By the end of chapter 1, I was OD'ing on the word fuck. Unbelievably improbable as it sounds, my best friend Kara Gillian has nothing on this guy here. And that, my Little Barnacles, is saying a whole bloody fucking lot. By the end of chapter 2, I'd h...

    Posted at Heradas Sort of an anti self-help book, meaning that it actually contains a useful philosophy, which is (mostly) just Buddhism/Stoicism dressed up a little for millennials. It's not as douchey as the title would have you think, and it's very entertaining. There's a lot of ...

    4 stars! This book wasn't only about giving no fucks, it was about giving fucks about only the important things. If you're going to read it, I would recommend the audio book. I thought the narration was great and it was highly entertaining and made me laugh out loud more than...

    If you follow my reviews/blog at all, you probably already know that I am already a zero fucks given kind of gal when it comes to, well, bullshit. In fact, my best friend had the below picture as my contact photo in his phone for years. So it should come as no surprise that I...

    I don't recall how many times I failed to feel motivated to read a book for school or start an assignment but did it anyways because of a sense of duty, being a student and all. Surprisingly, oftentimes, I ended up getting ''into'' whatever action I was performing that I initially want...

    I started out liking this book, I really did. By the time I was halfway in, his smug attitude about things he frankly knows jack shit about were getting on my nerves. He made some excellent points, all of which have been made countless times by other, more competent writers. Read Sartr...

    Masterpiece, incredibly funny. i don't usally go for self help books cause to me they are all the same! Smile more, love more, hate less, don't give up, it's gonna be okay, it's all in your head. Blah blah blah.... but this one was the exception. Anything with curse words on the cover ...

    I went into this admittedly with quite some skepticism and entitlement? ?what is this going to teach me that I don?t already know??? but The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is truly one of the most ground-shaping nonfiction books I?ve read so far. It will and can change a p...

    I don't read self-help. I simply don't believe in the self-help genre. If you need a book to help you live your life you have bigger problems than whatever brought you to that book. That may seem harsh but its just my opinion and you are free to ignore it. Since I don't read self-he...

    you think you're getting a light, irreverent lifestyle/self-help book, but then it's actually just a few good ideas taken from Buddhism and then mixed in with conservative nonsense about "snowflakes," mixed with some casual misogyny and backdoor bragging. A book only a white straight m...
