In this book, I hope to portray a real image of what life truly is. Life is no fairytale, it is a game. A game we all have to play, many of us fail, many of us succeed, but then there are those few who initially may seem to have failed, may show no bright future, may be completely lost, this book is for you. I have been there, I may be young, but I have endured and faced numerous challenges. Challenges that have tested me mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally. Through playing this game I have evolved as an individual to something I never believed I could be. I became stronger, smarter and more positive on various outlooks of life. Through this book I want to convey to you that anything is possible, the World could be collapsing on you but still you can push through as long as you have the right mindset on what it is you want to accomplish. Mindset is everything. Mindset is the key to winning the Game of Life. I have written this book straightforward with no nonsense or anything, just straight up real talk. To all the dreamers out there, all the grinders, this book is for you. You can do it.+

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 American 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.
