Conari Press
12

Freshly minted look, from the beloved author of The Woman’s Book of Courage. Sue Patton Thoele has written a dozen books, sharing the wisdom of her own life and her practice as a therapist. Women of all ages will find reassurance, humor, and stories that help them access the confidence they need to make their lives and dreams their own.

Thoele encourages us to weave a safety net, befriend our fears and see what we can take away from them, become our own parent when we need one, accept what is, and change what we can. These brief meditations, read daily, help reclaim dreams, tap into your intuitive wisdom, and find the strength to live fearlessly each and every day.

Confidence is not some big, abstract “out there” thing, accessible only to movie stars, brainiacs, and billionaires. It’s the stuff daily life is made of. Sue Thoele inspires and encourages us to find and grow our own confidence.

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.
