If you read one book in 2017, make it The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson. It's all about cutting through the crap to truly become better, happier people. Less sugarcoating, more refreshingly honest truth. Less participation gold medals, more embracing fears and faults.
Ryan Holiday says it best: “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.”
If you're sick of all the coddling in society, you'll get a kick out of this grab-you-by-the-shoulders lowdown on lifestyle design. It's not easy to find a better way to spend $14.99.
