Here's a free excerpt from the book: The first chapter of the book is titled "Don't Try".
By sharing the story of Charles Bukowski, an alcoholic, a constant gambler, a womanizer, and eventually a successful writer, Mark Manson makes the point that one should not try.
Bukowski aspired to be a writer but every publisher and publication he contacted rejected his work. He went into a depression encompassed by alcohol consumption.
His day job as a letter-filer at a post office did not bring much money and whatever he earned, he wasted in gambling. Thirty years passed and when he had turned 50, an editor at a small publishing house took an interest in him and gave him a chance. Bukowski composed his first novel in the time span of three weeks, titled Post Office.
He eventually became successful as a novelist and poet, going on to publish hundreds of poems and six novels, with more than two million copies of his books being sold. This surpassed everyone's expectations.
The epitaph on Bukowski's tombstone said, "Don't try."
