Inhaltsangabe zu „The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life“ von Mark Manson

New York Times Bestseller In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Ehrlich, direkt und einfach wahr! Mal ein etwas anderer Ratgeber ;)

    This Review was first posted on my blog KimSlr - bookishI wasn't sure if I wanted to write a review for this book as it is the first self-development book I've read. This is also the reason why I only gave this book 4 stars instead of 5, which it would have gotten, had it been a fiction book.Overall I absolutely loved this book. It is very down to earth and applicable and I feel like everyone could profit from reading this.Almost every single thing in there is something I either wholeheartedly believe or something I decided to try out/implement the moment I read it because it sounds so right and logical.I really need my husband to read this but he hates reading, anyone has tips?So after all the gushing, why did I only give it 4 stars? As I stated above, if this was a fiction book I'd have given it 5 stars, no questions asked.But there were a few things I didn't agree with, so I decided to take a step down with my rating.Still, if you haven't read this book yet do it! Even if you don't believe in 'self-help and voodoo crap', believe me this book is awesome!

    Mark Manson schafft es mit seinem einzigartigen Erzählungsstil den Leser direkt zu erreichen. Das Buch macht einfach Spaß zu lesen und man fühlt sich in vielen Situationen selbst angesprochen. Manson benutzt teilweise sehr flegelhafte Sprache, die aber meistens ironisch genutzt wird um einen Punkt klarzumachen. Für mich besonders interessant ist die Theorie, dass man im Leben nur eine bestimmte Anzahl an "Fucks" geben kann und man sich diese eben einteilen muss. Das ist mal eine andere Herangehensweise als die meisten anderen Ratgeber zur Selbstverwirklichung einem darlegen. Das Buch ist sehr ernüchternd geschrieben und manchmal bekommt man fast schon den Eindruck, dass Manson eine sehr pessimistische Sicht der Dinge hat, was allerdings meistens im nächsten Satz widerlegt wird. Für mich jedenfalls ist dieses Buch ein absolutes Muss für jeden, der mal etwas anderes lesen möchte. Für mich das beste Zitat: "After all, no truly happy person feels the need to stand in front of a mirror and recite that she's happy. She just is!"
