Inhaltsangabe

From the author of the international mega-best-seller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope.

We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been - we are freer, healthier, and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked - the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education, and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. 

What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t - and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the number-one best seller in 13 different countries. 

Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom - and even of hope itself.

With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before. It’s another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Some interesting ideas, but rather superficial

Mostly centering around a single thesis, so not really providing substantial insights. However, easy listen

The endless self-reinforcing cycle of despair & hope?

Even though some of the analogies (eg. the "laws of emotion") start to sound somewhat far fetched after some time I would strongly encourage others to read/listen on & wait for further points and pay offs in the writing's reasoning.

There are some truly mind-opening points to be found about the nature of hope and it's sometimes destructive qualities, as well as the apparent innate human bias towards some faith-based religions.
The sheer listing of all the different kinds of religions - and the well-reasoned argument that even science & interpersonal relationships are a kind of religion of themselves is a powerful take-away, as well as the argument about the importance of the concept of falsifying a theory/hypothesis in science.

This reminded me of the wonderful grand idea that supposedly nothing can ever be truly "proven" in science, but is only a step in an endless upward spiral between a new hypothesis/theory, experiments to support this theory, the results of an experiment that contradicts and therefore falsifies this theory & the emergence of a new hypothesis/theory that has adapted to the new found evidence of this latest experiment....

All in all, the book is certainly not flawless or perfect, but poses some truly interesting and encouraging views on our modern dilemmas as well as their intricate connections to hope and faith.
A must read/listen !

(P.S.: In case you find one of the jokey anecdotes annoying - just accelerate the narration speed for a bit - it'll get interesting again soon, and if you missed something, you can always play it back ;)

Cool!

Super, vor allem nicht immer die Belehrung, sondern Geschichten zwischendurch - ich finde nur, dass das Buch so tut, als wäre alles so schnell und knapp verständlich und es erklärt auch nur das Ziel und nicht den Weg (aber die Ansprüche stellt das Buch ja auch nicht, hätte ich mir nur zusätzlich gewünscht)

A mix of ideas without a red thread

A mix of ideas with quotes from Nietzsche, Sokrates, Schoppenhauer and co. There are some parts you certainly will like because Manson can have a deep insight into things and then there are some parts you just ask yourself "why?". If you expect something of the quality of his first book, this isnt it. I hope for more work from him in the future with a clearer focus

optional

Autor hat die verwendeten Studien nicht verstanden. Der Part über die Relativitätstheorie war richtig übel.

Simply amazing!

Mark Manson again brings an amazing book to the table. I strongly recommend you read this book, as it explains much about the world, society and our minds themselves.

Worth listening

For sure got me thinking, even though I did not agree with everything the author said. But I guess that is what a good book is about.
