Changed my way of thinking!
I absolutely loved this book. There was a lot of build up to the getting happier part but it was worth it. I am now meditating daily and I am really happy this is the first book I finished this year. Thanks Dan!

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
- A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
- Written by: Mark Manson
- Narrated by: Roger Wayne
- Length: 5 hrs and 17 mins
For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Same old self-help mantra.

I really wanted to like this book,but I could only make it about 20 minutes into it before being super frustrated by it. It's written in such a "bro" vernacular...the final straw was the line about "dumping that loser dude who you caught in your pantyhose one too many times" (or something along those lines). Between that and hearing fuck/fucked/fucking like 100 times in 18 minutes was so repetitive. It felt like a super cocky read. I'll definitely be exchanging this one.
