I am not into self-help, feel good-about-myself books. Tony Robbins? No thank you. I believe most self help “gurus” and life coaches are full of shit. Having said that, I noticed a recent bestseller that caught my eye. I purchased it, read it, highlighted it throughout, and I highly recommend it. “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” is a masterpiece! The author, Mark Manson is clever, he’s potty-mouthed and he’s not a prick! He and I are in agreement about the aforementioned gurus and “coaches.”
This is not your typical self-help book, I wouldn’t even categorize it that way. It’s a book about improving your life by not sweating the small stuff (his words, “Give a fuck about the things that matter), taking full responsibility for your problems, etc. He discusses entitled people and he hits a grand-slam home run! I don’t want to give anything away because everyone needs to read this book, whether the paperback or the kindle version (links are below, at bottom of page). I originally purchased the $2.99 Kindle version. I found the book so useful that I purchased four paperback copies (for $12.00 ea.) to give to my wife and all of my kids. I’ve made it mandatory reading in my household, book reports are required! I don’t go ape-shit over products very often and I wouldn’t waste my time writing this book recommendation if I didn’t feel it was important. Read the book. I do receive a tiny commission if you purchase directly from my links provided, so what. If this bothers you, then borrow a copy from your local library. I want everyone to read the book regardless of where you obtain it. The book is that damn good….
