  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

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.

The ideas behind the book are simple but it is nice to be reminded of them sometimes. I found it helpful!
I am not too fond of the narrator voices when he embodies a woman/ a teenager though, feels a bit condescending.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, read by Sarah Jes Austell. The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion. It was a stolen book. At age 17 she was a dumpster-diving, shoplifting anarchist. By 29 she was the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, a $100 million-plus fashion empire. Filled with brazen wake-up calls ("You are not a special snowflake"), frank observations ("Failure is your invention"), and behind-the-scenes stories....

Sophia Amoruso is so inspiring and has such an amazing story to tell, and yet this book is boring as hell. Her tips to get an interview or succeed at work are so obvious it feels like she's considering her readers totally brainless. Too bad!

Nothing in this book is really inspiring, it is pretty flat and boring. If you've heard "listen to your body when you are eating" before, then you know it all, no need to listen to this soporific book.
