This book serves as an action guide for the Union Rep, Steward and Union Activist Leader whose hard work, labor and unyielding sacrafices often go un-noticed by the people whom they serve and the Union leadership from whom they get their direction. It is a book of empowerment in dealing with the day to day trials and tribulations within the labor movement. In this book you will be empowered in terms of learning how to: motivate a Steward Council, effectively deal with members who get on your last nerve, understand the psychological mind-set you need when reprsenting members in grievances and arbitration, a detailed analysis of the 7 Steps of Just Cause and its proper application, and much much, more. The A.C.T.I.O.N Guide for Union Reps, Stewards, and Leaders will motivate you, excite you, agitate you, and hopefully move you into action. If this book serves any purpose at all, it is my hope that after reading it, you will view your work not as a job, but a calling--in a movement--for social change!

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.
