Title: The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck
Author: Mark Manson
Publisher: HarperCollins Books
A different and invaluable perspective! The subtle art of not giving a fuck is a book which will reflect your true self. The author has discussed an entirely different and a new perspective. When you will go through the index and have a look at the titles of the chapter, either you will start laughing or you will file a case against him for giving such negative titles. But then as you start reading the book, you will appreciate his high-level discussion on the truth!
How every book teaches us to think positive, to react positively and to be positive all the time. This book says
“The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.”
Looking in the mirror and saying that you are beautiful clearly indicates that you are not! That’s why you are telling yourself, just to satisfy yourself. Mark says that chasing happiness will not make you happy but understanding and accepting your adversities will make you happy. So, do not try to be positive because it is okay to be inadequate sometimes.
How we always love the success. Since we are born, we think that we will become a singer, a writer, an actor, etc and millions of people will know us. We always love our imagination of being successful but we never love the process to achieve it. This book teaches us the reality of how visionary and hollow we are!
People say that they need the motivation to work, but Mark says the more actions you will take the more motivated you will become, ultimately leading to more work.
It also talks about the fake and unconditional love that we possess in our relationships, whether it is for our partner, family or friends.
In this book, the starting of most of the chapters is with a story of some person, just to epitomize the motive of the chapter. This book is brilliantly written. It shows how we do our things without even thinking. It teaches the importance of saying NO.
Everyone should read this book otherwise you will miss something important in your just-one-life.
