The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life, a book review

A book review written by Lee Sonogan

Mark Manson on The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. - The Booktopian

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 picks my interest 😛 The first half of it was my favorite, the aim of this book is to help the reader to think a little bit more clearly about what they’re choosing to find important in life and what they’re choosing to find unimportant. Clumsy Storyreader 5/5

What is worth giving a fuck about and what is not? Listening to the audiobook for its entire 5:27:28 length, this is a book some people need to hear. Formated with a predicted set of values or principles, what this self-help book does is identify responsibility and how to be humbled. To see a large list of quotes, click the link below.

Telling you engaging truths through humourous personal experience, historical references, mixed with psychology and philosophy, this is one memorable perspective of authenticity. Mark Manson expresses his thoughts on so many unnecessary issues of modern times. Than offers multiple solutions that you should already know and other unexpected choices. Engaging in personality, the flow is just enough understandable as the subject matter is pulled apart and put back together again.

By far this is an informative book being the best of its giant genre and Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules For Life. In the spectrum of life, one must be involved with a negative to further grow emotional resilience. To gain a greater sense of self, in holding meaning both subjective and objective simultaneously. There is a big difference between the chase and the actual motivation to make relevant changes.


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. Chance Lee 5/10
