The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life (2016) by Mark Manson is a self-help book with a clever title. It’s not terrible, indeed the first and last bits are really quite good.

Manson makes the point that we really have to not care about a lot of things to actually be able to care for a few things that matter to us. And he makes the point quite well with some sweary language. Having done this the book really sags and drags though until near the end where it perks up a little.

It’s strange to see that there are so many really positive reviews for this book. It’s not bad, but it’s far from great. Perhaps Manson’s blog is pretty popular and he’s had people who like him from there review it.
