In this concise and fascinating book, Tony Burroughs shows readers how to work with the Law of Agreement to change old beliefs about money, relationships, and health issues that are holding them back. He shares stories from his years of working with people from all over the world who are practicing living intentionally bringing into their lives that which serves the higher good and discarding the rest.
The Law of Agreement says that as we lend our agreement to any belief, we reinforce it and make it stronger. Alternatively, as we refrain from lending our agreement to an idea that isn’t likely to give us the results we’re looking for, we dilute it and weaken its power over us and over everyone else simultaneously.
Burroughs offers examples and stories that show how the Law of Agreement and its partner, the Law of Adversity, work simultaneously. What happens when we don’t get what we want? What is the opportunity in adversity? The Law of Agreement shows how adversity can lift us up and out of our routines and help us to reach deep inside ourselves for answers to life’s hardest questions.
Full of real-life stories, examples, and solutions, The Law of Agreement is a practical and world changing book.

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.
The time is now at hand and Burroughs, along with thousands of others who have formed "Intenders Circles" throughout the world, is sharing a simple and powerful message: that which you are reaching toward is also reaching out toward you.
The practice is, literally, as easy as one, two, three:
say your intentions out loud dailygo to an Intenders Circlestate that, in order for your intentions to manifest, they must serve the Highest and Best Good of the Universe, yourself, and everyone concerned
Since there are no limits on what you can think about, there are no limits on what you can intend.
