The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson


…You get pissed off at the stupidest, most inane stuff, and you have no
idea why. And the fact that you get pissed off so easily starts to piss you
off even more. And then, in your petty rage, you realise that being angry
all the time makes you a shallow and mean person, and you hate this; you
hate it so much that you get angry at yourself. Now look at you: you’re
angry at yourself getting angry about being angry. F*ck you, wall. Here,
have a fist….Welcome to the Feedback Loop from Hell….

Taking my cue from Mark Manson’s book, I DON’T GIVE A F*CK ABOUT WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!

Star blogger, entrepreneur and former dating coach, Mark has been helping people with their problems since 2007. With The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, he brings forth the very predicament most of us find ourselves stuck in. Everything needs to fall in place and if it doesn’t…God forbid; We become control freaks and raging maniacs!

According to Mark, in a world where there are enough and many f*cked up situations, choose wisely- what you should give a f*ck about.

On a personal note, I don’t generally go for self help books. I don’t need others to tell me how to correct what is wrong with my life; I like many others, prefer living in self-denial( just kidding…..or is it true?)

But Mark’s book is interesting enough to keep one glued. Many phrases stand out and you do find yourself reflecting about the time when you got caught up in a similar scenario.

Wrapped up in one little explosive package, Mark Manson’s tongue in cheek offering is an interesting read.
