The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life (Arta subtilă a nepăsării)De (autor) Mark Manson
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 13 Sep 2016
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 modern 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.

Anonim a dat nota:
O carte cu adevarat "diferita". Autorul are un stil usor atipic, fiind mult mai "catchy". In acelasi timp, aduce la lumina anumite concepte care chiar te pot ajuta sa iti schimbi viziunea asupra problemelor. Chiar as putea spune ca tinde un pic spre stoicism (vezi Marcus Aurelius). Cu siguranta as recomanda!
Emilia Piringiu a dat nota:
To the point, no sugar-coating, thought-provoking, yet funny and a well needed 'friend' to make you analyse yourself.
Iulia-Maria Iurean a dat nota:
Nu e de mirare ca este bestseller, Mark Manson ne da adevarul gol-golut! Intr-o lume in care ne pierdem in ganduri, griji si stres in fiecare zi, aceasta carte vine ca o gura de aer proaspat: we don't need to give a fuck about everything! Traim intr-o societate disfunctionala, creata pentru bani si putere, nu pentru oameni. Ne-am pierdut umanitatea, ne identificam prea mult cu ceea ce ne-a fost dat pe tava inca de mici.

But those days are over. Fuck positivity, Mark Manson says. Let s be honest; sometimes things are fucked up and we have to live with it.

Manson makes the argument backed by both 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 better stomach lemons. Human beings are flawed and limited as he writes, 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. This, he says, is the real source of empowerment. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties once we stop running from and avoiding, and start confronting painful truths we can begin to find the courage and confidence we desperately seek.
In life, we have a limited amount of fucks to give. So you must choose your fucks wisely. Manson brings a much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor. This manifesto is a refreshing slap in the face for all of us so that we can start to lead more contented, grounded lives.
