The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck: A Book Review

This book is written by an American Author, Blogger, Entrepreneur, and his name is Mark Menson. His blog is read by millions of visitors around the globe. I happen to know him only after I came across this book titled “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck”.

The book is about our life and how we give attention to things that are not necessary. Here is an excerpt from the book:

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

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. How many times do we give a fuck about what others think of us? Many Times, isn’t it. Let it be your friend or a relative or a neighbor. Especially in typical Indian Family. Uncles and Aunties are always interested in you what you are doing. They are people who will shape your future. I know I one of my friend who wanted to learn Tatto making and building a career in it. He was discouraged heavily by his families, friends and eventually he gave up. There is one more story of a girl who wanted to pursue a YouTube career. She was discouraged as she doesn’t have white skin. Her channel was on beauty tips and no one will watch her videos-That was her some of the so-called future-defining astrologers like friends. But, she didn’t give up and succeed. Some of you may say not it doesn’t happen. Now, India has changed. You need to check out this awesome book by Mark Manson. 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 an 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.


My thoughts on the Book

At first, I thought this book will be the same as thousands of books published each week. I assumed there is no new material in the book.

I have been recommended by many fellow bloggers and I have seen many YouTubers talking about this shit book.

Though I said shit, actually not, the book is filled with practical life examples. How to overcome fear? Why not give a fuck about others thoughts on You, Why you are more important to you than anyone else, We all same and have problems and Its all about how you react to it etc. motivational packed thoughts.

This book is written easy language so that any layman understand without using a dictionary.


What you will get from this book:

1. You will get the confidence to do things that matter more to you than anyone else.

2. Start a new life from zero: The book will prove to you why you deserve a new life and how to do so.

3.Courage to defeat your fear: If you are in fear of anything, the book will pump you take difficult things.

4. Bring a change in you: By applying the tips shared by the author you will be able to bring changes in your life.


I liked the book and I do not wonder why the book is one of the NeyWork’s Bestseller Books.

I don’t guaranty that what I said above can happen to everyone. But, if you read the book you will realize the why you living and For whom you are living. All the people surrounding you do not give a fuck about you. His expression of words and sentences connect with our personal life.  You can buy the book following the link below.
