The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
James’s first review of the year
liked it
Pro: it’s always good to have someone remind you to evaluate your values and align your focus with them.

Con: cites no peer-reviewed research, yet tosses off bold claims.

Con: the writing makes the author seem like a jerk, especially his examples of hedonism. He can’t think outside his own point of view for more than 3 seconds.

James’s last review of the year
liked it
I love Elizabeth Warren. Her energy and ideas are inspiring. She’s a great Senator and she’d make a great President.

But this book is just a stump speech. There’s little supporting research (which isn’t to say its non-factual, just not supported).

She’s at her strongest her when she’s telling the stories of Americans she has met in her travels.
