A sutil arte de ligar o f*da-se
Chega de tentar buscar um sucesso que só existe na sua cabeça. Chega de se torturar para pensar positivo enquanto sua vida vai ladeira abaixo. Chega de se sentir inferior por não ver o lado bom de estar no fundo do poço.
Coaching, autoajuda, desenvolvimento pessoal, mentalização positiva — sem querer desprezar o valor de nada disso, a grande verdade é que às vezes nos senti...more
Sort of an anti self-help book, meaning that it actually contains a useful philosophy, which is (mostly) just Buddhism/Stoicism dressed up a little for millennials. It's not as douchey as the title would have you think, and it's very entertaining. There's a lot of cross-over with Carl Sagan's The Demon-Haunted World, surprisingly. A lot of good advice for those, like me, who over-stress themselves about mostly nothing at all. I really loved it; I'll probably circle back to it a ...more
In fact, my best friend had the below picture as my contact photo in his phone for years.
So it should come as no surprise that I, like many, was drawn to this book, 1) Because it has the word "fuck" in the title. Duh. And, 2) Because it's bright fucking orange.
That said, the chum was in the water for me already based on that alone.
But when I got to t ...more

I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so I picked this up. And now that I'm done? Well, I agree with everything Manson says, but (like other reviewers have mentioned) everything he's written about is common sense stuff.
Is that revolutionary?
What does it say about our society in general that any of what he's saying is...well, remotely necessary to say!?
When the basic premise of a bestseller is that you should stop comparing yourself to what you see on tel ...more
Since I don't read self-help, you may be asking "Erin, Why did you read this book?
Blame Popsugar. I'm doing the Popsugar 2017 Reading challenge and needed to read a book from a genre I don't usually read. As you can see if you look at my book ...more
Wish I could say I couldn't give a fu#k about spending £10.99 on this serious heap of rubbish, but yes, i do give a fu#k that this ego driven, talentless author swindled me out of money for a heap of rubbish.
He is probably having a great old laugh at the fact that his mantra `dont try` has resulted in an awful written book, full of cliches, calling reader `dumbass`, referring to us wanting to feel jennifer aniston`s t#ts , and bigging himself up generally. He probably finds ...more
There is a distinction between what the title implies and what Manson intends. Manson is essentially inviting us to only care about what’s important and let the rest take care of itself.
I’ve been accused of indifference or “living in a bubble” for years because I don’t follow politics and rarely watch the news. My mantra is the serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to kn ...more
I don't know how to review this book without typing out the whole book, so I'm going to try something different: to be brief. This book provides support for someone who wants to live in reality, someone who doesn't want to buy into our national capitalist mindset that ...more
It's a positive message, but glad I didn't pay for it as it felt repetitious to me.
I listened to it on audible and enjoyed the narrator.
I don’t normally read self-help books – the problem I have with them is the first word, more than the second. We generally all need some sort of help, but that ...more
- انا لا اقتنع بكتب التحفيز الشخصي والبحث عن السعادة والإيجابية في الحياة والى ما هنالك من عناوين فضفاضة، لأن الإنسان هو تجربة بحد ذاته، وكل تجربة تختلف عن الأخرى، وما يناسب انسان لا يناسب انسانا آخراً.
- فكرة تقبل الفشل فكرة وجودية، لأن شعور الفشل يحطم الناس ويحولهم الى ضعفاء او جبناء في مواجهة الحياة..
- معظم ما جاء في الكتاب سيكتسبه ال ...more
Oh, wow. I loved this.
I really really loved this.
I loved that this was so... freely written. Who cares if there are tons of curses in it?
Everything he says or teaches us is always followed or introduced with a personal or historical story. There are always examples, stories, explanations that are not overly complicated. The whole book was full of honest, true and really interesting stuff.
These were my favorite:
- Not giving a fuck does not mean being indifferent, it means being comfortable w ...more
لماذا؟ لأن الحياة مليئة بالتحديات. ولو استمثر المرء وقته للصراع مع كل تحدّي يواجهه وفي كل مجالات الحياة فسيتشتّت ويتمزّق ويعيش في قلق. وعلى العكس تمامًا: لو قرّر المرء أن يتفرّغ فقط للتحدّيات التي لها علاقة بقِيَمه وما يُغليه فسيتمكّن من أن يعيش تجربة غنية ذات معنى، وأن يشعر بالرضى في آخر ...more
I’ve been seeing this book consistently on the Amazon’s Most Read charts. I like to browse this list because it shows you what people are actually reading instead of just what people are buying.
I find the list more useful than other bestsellers’ list because it tells me which books are engaging people, after all, we’ve all picked up a title and abandoned it after a few pages because it wasn’t interesting or compelling.
So, I went ahead and borrowed it from the library. Th ...more
☠ DNF at 29%
By the end of chapter 1, I was OD'ing on the word fuck.
Unbelievably improbable as it sounds, my best friend Kara Gillian has nothing on this guy here. And that, my Little Barnacles, is saying a whole bloody fucking lot.
By the end of chapter 2, I'd had it with Mark Manson's smug, narcissistic, sanctimonious, clichéd-to-death-and-back, infantilizing, everyone-but-me-is-a-
Supongo que parte de la culpa es mía, que he visto una portada y un títulos llamativos y me he dejado llevar por el marketing.
A lo mejor hay personas a las que este libro les ayuda a mejorar su vida y que les abre la mente a nuevos horizontes y ¡Ey pues genial! Me alegra que alguien pueda disfrutar de la experiencia de leer este libro, pero no es mi caso por 3 motivos.
1. Discrepo con el 90% de lo que se dice en este libro.
2. La falta de bibliografía y documentación. "Es ...more

Pain is an inextricable thread in the fabric of life, and to tear it out is not only impossible, but destructive: attempting to tear it out unravels everything else with it. To try to avoid pain is to give too many fucks about pain. In contrast, if you’re able to not give a fuck about the pain, you become unstoppable." ~~~~ Mark Manson”
