A paradoxical guide to the issues of optimism from the author of the international mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck.
We are living in an exciting epoch. Everything is better than it has ever been in terms of material goods—we are freer, healthier, and wealthier than any people in human history. Nonetheless, everything appears to be irreversibly and dreadfully messed up—the globe is warming, governments are failing, markets are crumbling, and everyone on Twitter is continually upset. So many of us return to an overarching sense of pessimism at this point in history, when we have access to technology, education, and communication that our forefathers could only dream of.
What exactly is going on? Mark Manson is the only person who can put a name to our current ills and offer solutions. Manson wrote The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck in 2016, a book that masterfully articulated the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that pervades modern life. He demonstrated that technology had made it far too easy to be concerned with the wrong things, that our culture had persuaded us that the world owed us something when it didn't, and, worst of all, that our modern and perplexing need to constantly be happy simply helped to make us unhappier. Instead, the title's "subtle art" proved to be a strong challenge: to select your fight; to narrow and focus and identify the suffering you wish to endure. As a result, the book became an international sensation, selling millions of copies worldwide and becoming the number one bestseller in the United States.
Now, in Everything Is F*cked, Manson shifts his focus from the inevitability of defects within each individual self to the never-ending disasters that occur in the world around us. He dissects religion and politics and the uneasy ways they have grown to resemble one another, drawing on a wealth of psychological research as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits. He examines our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet, as well as how having too much of a good thing may kill us psychologically. He openly challenges our understandings of faith, happiness, freedom, and even hope.
Mark Manson is the author of the mega-bestsellers Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life, which went to #1 in fourteen countries. Mark's novels have been translated into over 50 languages and have sold in excess of 12 million copies around the world.
