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.

A perfect successor to The Subtle Art

I am a huge fan of his first book (I must have listened to it at least 7 times) and this one just is the logical next step. Mark goes way deeper in everything is fcked and he has matured a lot as a writer.
This is a no bs approach to all the important questions we should ask ourselves in order to live good lives. He draws upon the big thinkers, scientists, musicians and heroes of humanity in order to explain why nihilism isn't the way to go and how we go about making our lives matter (for us and the people around us).

I love the way he expresses himself it is funny and thought provoking. If you want a self-help book that isn't as cheesy and less puffy than all the others this is it. However don't believe you can just listen to or read it once, there is a lot of wisdom in the pages and you will want to go over the ideas at least a couple of times.

I consider Mark Manson one of the best self help writers there are. If you haven't yet, also consider checking out his blog where he talks a lot about what he's learned over the years.

Thank you Mark for this yet again great book. I was hyped to read your new book since you've announced it in your emails :) keep on rocking!

by far the best work from Mark

This book is really amazing.
it teaches you a lot about the human mind and why it always constructs hope in order to cope with life's challenges.
Or as Einstein never put it: "it shows you how not to be a fu*kin' dips*it!" - Highly recommended!

Totally surprised!

Well, I wasn't expecting much when I grabbed this audiobook. I though that his previous 'The art of not giving a f' was "ok", let it be 3~4 stars, and that this would just be a continuation of ranting, vulgar shocking talk and some vague talk about values. I actually expected Mark Manson to just chill on his achievements. My mistake.
This is not the case at all! Mark did not sit around enjoying his fame, but grew immensely in the last 2 years, which proves his integrity! The immature angriness of the past book is gone, this book is written with humility and respect for the reader. It's not to show us how stupid we are, but simply showing us alternative ways.

The title is a little misleading. The book is about hope, but in reverse. Only because we hope do we make the present miserable. We cling to a better future, creating conflict in the now and struggle to achieve some kind of goal, mostly happiness, which doesn't lead us anywhere. He argues that we therefore see and handle everything, including our fellow human beings always as a mean to that end. Instead, if we want to grow up, we should relinquish hope and start to live unconditionally. Love for love's sake, honesty for honesty's. When treating life as a mean to some hopeful future, we miss the point. Why not let life itself be the end, the meaning, the purpose?

Very touching, greatly written, great sources! I will start my second run right away.

If you want me to give you a downside, the book is too short. 7 hours just passed like nothing else, could't believe I was through.
