MARK MANSON - THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck - A Book Review

One of my favorite pieces ever penned on the web is called The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck by Julien Smith, first published on his personal blog and recently republished on Medium. People skim the story, share it, tag me because I like cuss words and have thick skin, and move on, thinking that Smith meant to tell everyone that they should never care what others think. Guess what? Not all commentary is irrelevant. Your boss tells you that you suck at something? Bye bye, customer.

I have spent almost my whole life– 31 years– caring far too much about offending people, worrying if I'm cool enough for them, or asking myself.

The American Genius

There's nothing subtle about Mark Manson. But like anything of true value in life, dig a little deeper and you'll find treasure worthy of any explorer willing to look below the surface. So clever in fact that he's brilliantly disguised his book using language as a way of tricking the reader into reading a book about values. In the same way that he encourages limiting exposure to mindless distractions such as social media, television and technology, he encourages limiting concern over things that have little to no meaning or value in your life. In our interview, Mark said, "If seeing things online or hearing things your co-workers say is really affecting you that much then you need to look at the values in your life. If your emotions are constantly being pushed this way or that way, and you feel like you're never in control, it's probably because you're valuing a lot of the wrong things. It's a bold confrontation of self, our painful truths, faults and uncertainties, without all the positive airy fairy fluff we've been spoon-fed to believe by self-help gurus.

I think almost every single person who voted selected this book. I was pretty excited for it as I had been wanting to read it for awhile, but I ended up having a love-hate relationship with it. Since I was reading it for the sake of the book club, I pushed through and I did end up liking it. Bassam listened to the book on audio and he really liked it from the beginning, he just found the middle to be a bit repetitive. The whole concept of the book is that everyone has limited fucks to give in their life and so they should spend their fucks on something that is worthwhile to them. Many of the concepts I recognized as derived from ACT Acceptance and Commitment Therapy , a branch of psychology derived from behavior analysis.

This is true because every life has problems associated with it and finding meaning in your life will help you sustain the effort needed to overcome the particular problems you face.
