Mark Manson: Everything is F*cked – A Talk About Hope

It’s the self-help book for people who hate self-help. It’s as much a pat on the back as a slap in the face. It’s the first truly no BS guide to flourishing in a crazy, crazy world.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck (Harper Collins) has taken the world by storm, selling almost 2 million copies in its first year alone. It’s been #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. It’s being translated into 25 languages.

Subtle Art presents an entirely new approach to personal development, from top to bottom. Life is not about getting rid of problems, it’s about finding better problems. It’s not about avoiding  failure, it’s about getting better at failure. It’s not about knowing everything, but becoming more comfortable in not knowing anything.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is all about coming to terms with all of the inevitable unimportant imperfections in life and then choosing to not give a f*ck about them. It’s about learning how to give a f*ck about the few things that truly matter.

Everything is F*cked
A counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope. We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been – we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked – the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. What’s going on?
