Book Review #15 for 2019: The Subtle Art of Not giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

There has been a lot of hype about this book and I was actually quite resistant to reading it. I can say that I was really not expecting what I read and I mean this in the best possible way.

From what I can see, Manson has taken teachings from the likes of Eckhart Tolle and masterfully brought them into the modern vernacular and I think this is hugely valuable.

The author explores challenges, thoughts and feelings that I think we all face and offers wisdom and tools to work through these in a very practical way.

My take home message is this:

The act of trying to change a negative situation to a positive one is, in and of itself a negative experience. BUT, accepting a negative experience as it is, is in and of itself a positive experience.

Mark Manson

This message is deeply transformative and taught in many spiritual and self help books but Manson brings it right into the everyday world and with everyday language.

I strongly recommend this book for pretty much anyone that wants to lead a better life with more self acceptance and awareness.
