Reading Project 2017 – The Subtle Art of not Giving a F*ck #2

Oh fuckity fuck, do I give a fuck about Mark Manson‘s book? Hell no! Well then I guess this book did its job then. Actually, I didn’t like the first half of the book – he used the F word too many times (which was really annoying!) and he used too many examples from his own life, which would have been fine except he reminded me of a try-hard wanker who thinks he’s god’s gift to women. But hey to his credit it did get better – sort of. He used a lot of cool stories to illustrate his points. Then towards the end he kinda got all sermony – “You are great; Life is great; Harness the moment; and so on and so on.” But I thought we weren’t supposed to give a fuck? Anyhow, it sounded like a book I read a few years back called “Conversations with God” – if you’ve read it, you’d know what I mean.

Ok so would I recommend it? I don’t know….there are some interesting stuff in there but I think his message is confusing and inconsistent.  And I didn’t like the use of the F word just for the sake of it and to pad things out. It has a grabbing title and that’s about it. Anyway read it at your own peril.
