This book was a long time coming. Someone had to say what Manson was going to say in his book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
Mark Manson is also a blogger, admittedly much more popular than me, and I think he has the right approach to life.
In his book he talks about current generation of spoiled people to whom everything has come too easy, where gold medals are being given to them for simply showing up, and how that is not how the world really is. The world is cruel, unforgiving and it certainly doesn’t help you get back up once you fall – you have to do that by yourself. To do that, you need a thicker skin.
Manson wants to remind us that sometimes life deals you the bad hand, and that’s just what you have to play with if you been one of the many unlucky ones. That doesn’t mean you can’t climb out of your struggle, but you do have to understand that it will be a struggle, and you should probably start thinking of your life as such. It’s okay to fail, and it’s also okay to feel good after you succeed.
You will not find any kind of sugarcoating in this book, but what you will find is academically backed research that proves the way we raise our children today isn’t really working. Sprinkle in some poop jokes and you’ve got a pretty good soup.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life is a slap in the face, a wake up call, to anyone who got caught in the current generation of education system and I recommend for everyone to read it for themselves.
