Descripción del producto
"Mark's ability to dig deep and offer amazing, yet counter-intuitive, insight into the challenges of life makes him one of my favorite writers, and this book is his best work yet."--Matt Kepnes, New York Times bestselling author of Travel the World on $50 a Day: Travel Cheaper, Longer, Smarter
"Resilience, happiness and freedom come from knowing what to care about--and most importantly, what not to care about. This is a masterful, philosophical and practical book that will give readers the wisdom to be able to do just that."--Ryan Holiday, New York Times bestselling author of The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy
"The opposite of every other book. Don't try. Give up. Be wrong. Lower your standards. Stop believing in yourself. Follow the pain. Each point is profoundly true, useful, and more powerful than the usual positivity. Succinct but surprisingly deep, I read it in one night."--Derek Sivers, Founder of CD Baby and author of Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur
"This book hits you like a much-needed slap in the face from your best friend: hilarious, vulgar, and immensely thought-provoking. Only read if you're willing to set aside all excuses and take an active role in living a f***ing better life."--Steve Kamb, bestselling author of Level Up Your Life and founder of NerdFitness.com

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger shows us that the key to being happier is to stop trying to be "positive" all the time and instead to become better at handling adversity.
For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life.
But those days are over. "Fuck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest; sometimes things are fucked up and we have to live with it." For the past few years, Manson--via his wildly popular blog--has been working on correcting our delusional expectations for ourselves and for the world. He now brings his hard-fought wisdom to this groundbreaking book.
Manson makes the argument--backed by both 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 better stomach lemons. Human beings are flawed and limited--as he writes, "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. This, he says, is the real source of empowerment. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties--once we stop running from and avoiding, and start confronting painful truths--we can begin to find the courage and confidence we desperately seek.
"In life, we have a limited amount of fucks to give. So you must choose your fucks wisely." Manson brings a much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor. This manifesto is a refreshing slap in the face for all of us so that we can start to lead more contented, grounded lives.

El libro fue mas barato en pasta dura que en la de pasta blanda, me llegó rapidísimo. La calificación es casi sólo por la recomendación de leerlo, lo cuál podría recomendarlo si tu tipo de lectura es ésta.
Es fácil de leer, utiliza palabras que (para alguien de veintitantos) se le hace muy ligero, es muy directo con su mensaje y me dijo que te deja con muchas ganas de terminarlo

I have to admit, I wasn't convinced (ignorant, you could say) of all these self-help books people lavish over, I honestly thought it was a load of hippy crap as a means to make a quick buck... Although after a bout of depression last year (yea the "D" word get's thrown around alot these days), I myself was seeking out therapy. I was recommended this author and discovered this book. After asking myself "If this doesn't work, I'll just try something else" I figured I had nothing to lose.
And WOW. This book really changed my perspective on things and ultimately I feel much better and improved! Not 100%, but I'm getting there slowly.
As you could tell from the title, the author isn't shy of using profanity, and I like this. I've read other self-help books and while they're good and all, Mark Manson really engages you on a personal level. Imagine going to the doctor, and he's been all professional... but a tad boring and nearly sends you to sleep. Now imagine the same doctor taking you to the bar, having a pint and a laugh, but telling you the same advice. Who would you connect with better? Yea, I thought so.
Controversial title aside, the book isn't about just not giving a damn, but about focusing WHAT to not give a damn about. Stop getting stressed about by what the media (and others) want us to be, not getting worked up by social media, stuff like that. Instead, focus the damns on the important stuff: family, friends, your well being.
The book does take a while to pick up, with the early chapters focusing on examples of people who you may or may not relate to, or even care about. It can start to drag on, but eventually, Mr. Manson really dives into the meat of the book, and asks yourself to challenge your beliefs. Knowing that you're not always right all the time. Not denying your own flaws by redirecting the blame onto other people when challenged (many people are guilty of this). Acknowledging you're not perfect and rolling with it. Realising your emotions and problems aren't exclusive: nearly everyone in the world will have experienced what you felt at some point in their lives.
Real stuff that actually helps you come to terms with yourself and not inflating your ego, or doing some tantric yoga exercises to unlock your inner chi circles. Real stuff.
I consider this book my bible: I read certain parts every now and then to maintain my self improvement, it gives me solace during times where I'm feeling down, and I harrass my Instagram followers by posting snippets of the pages. I've even brought several copies for friends who were going through a rough time.
TLDR: this book helped me out, connects with you on an unconventional level, and ultimately offers brilliant advice that helps improve yourself and hopefully others around you. Highly recommended!
PS. It's a MASSIVE shame that certain individuals refuse to fully read the book due to liberal use of the F word. I'd say that's the whole point: letting go of your "I'm entitled so I'm offended" beliefs and challenging yourself to overcome this personal stigma to improve your outlook on life.
P.S: If you are looking to feel good, this might not be your cup of tea.
That’s kinda how this book made me feel. The clever title, like the low lights in a bar, masks the fact that this book offers no real substance while the author simply brags about his good fortune in life. A few chapters in, “the lights come on” and you just feel kinda icky.
I’m upset this p.o.s. Got any of my money.
There are many good books out there on existentialism that might actually teach you something - this was basically a dumbed-down ripoff of Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning".
Okay. First things first, whether you like the book or not, whether you take anything substantial away from this book or not, whether you implement any wisdom described in the book in your life or not, I think you would definitely enjoy the way this book is written, its language and the general fun feeling of reading through a book, which I would safely put in the genre of ‘Unconventional Wisdom’.
I loved reading this book! I think it’s very relatable, the way the author has described various instances and examples. However, implementing the same attitude in your life might be tricky and difficult. If you can implement it the way the author intends to, I think you would be on your path to a successful life. I think this book is especially useful for people who keep worrying about trivial things way too much. The book will teach you to focus on larger things and don’t care about petty stuff that has no meaning or effect on your life.
The book will also teach you to embrace mediocrity because admit it, not everyone is going to be great. But it also teaches you that such acceptance is the first step towards achieving something better, if not something great.
However, I think the book’s target audience is the younger generation, young adults. The book will make you realize some things which you already know but you couldn’t admit to yourself. Some parts would be extremely funny, just because of the way certain things are described and put together in the book. Some other parts would be really enlightening. Also, there would be times when the author reminisces about his past, which can get slightly boring and dragging, even exaggerated.
Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
- “People who become great at something become great because they understand that they’re not already great - they are mediocre, they are average - and that they could be so much better.”
- “You always get to choose how you see things, how you react to things, how you value things.”
- “If you’re stuck on a problem, don’t sit there and think about it, just start working on it. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, the simple act of working on it will eventually cause the right ideas to show up in your head.”
- “You too are going to die, and that’s because you too were fortunate enough to have lived.”
- “Pain, in all of its forms, is our body’s most effective means of spurring action.”
- “Not giving a f does not mean being indifferent, it means being comfortable with being different.”
To conclude, I would recommend this one to my fellow readers (or non-readers). Cheers!
