Book Impressions: The Subtle Art Of Not Giving a F*ck - Mark Manson
Welcome to my first "Book Impressions" post, where I give my impressions on books that I read. They will not be full blown reviews, but just a quick summary of the book and whether or not I recommend it.
A couple weeks back, I decided to pick up reading in the morning again. Initially, I stopped reading, as I figured that going for a morning walk would be the "healthier" thing to do. However, after awhile, I found myself missing my morning reading time, and so I decided to go back to reading, instead of walking.
With that being said, after finishing up my previous book, I decided to finally sit down and read a book that has been on my list for quite some time, but haven't gotten around to reading it. This book is The Subtle Art Of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson.
I just finished the book yesterday, so I decided to make it part of my first Book Impressions post.
What is it about?
The Subtle Art Of Not Giving a F*ck is a book about helping the reader selectively spend their time on things that matter most. Or, in the famous words of Mark Manson, things to give a fuck about.
Mark takes you through multiple ways to define your values, figuring out things to give a fuck about, and helping you become a genuinely better person by not giving fucks about things that just do not matter.
The best part, and I'm sure the title of the book kind of gives it away, but Mark is witty and includes some humor throughout the book. It had me making note of multiple pages just because they genuinely made me smile, giggle, or laugh.
Do I recommend it?
Definitely. Alone, it is a great read. It provides a lot of good information. In fact, I ended up writing copying and writing notes on more than 75% of the book. Seeing how I usually only end up taking notes on 25-35% of other non-fiction books, it definitely shows that a large amount of what Mark includes in this book is something that I personally want to remember and actually hold myself too.
If you haven't taken a look at this book yet, I recommend it. In my opinion, it is worth the cost of picking up the book. But, if you can't, check and see if your local library has it.
