 Becoming rich or, better yet, wealthy requires a certain mind-set. Becoming wealthy is fairly straight forward—theoretically. In practice, there are hurdles that most of us don’t even see. These are the barriers to entry that allow many in society to claim that opportunity exists for all of us—but in reality are closed to most of us. The first thing in overcoming these barriers is to be able to learn how to see the barriers. Once you learn to see, you will be able to overcome.

This book sets out in short stories and narratives the secrets to developing the mind-set of the wealthy. It will provide you with the tried and tested truths behind accumulating riches and wealth.

About the author

 Baron A. Deschauer was born in Winnipeg, Canada the fifth of six children. He is married and currently lives in the Channel Islands. It took 45 years of living and writing and travel and study before Baron was satisfied that what he wrote was worth reading. In this, the second book that Baron has written (alongside Revelation), he sets out the wisdom gleaned from his life thus far. From the Great Wall to the Wailing Wall, from the pyramids to the pentagon, from the kitchen table to the boardroom table, Baron has travelled the world and lived in the world. He is an entrepreneur and property developer who retired at age 40. Equally torn between the Church and Military and Academia, he received his B.Ed and LLB before leaving Canada to pursue his business interests in the UK.

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.
