Everything Is F*cked
Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope | Mark Manson
From the author of the international mega-bestseller 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 its ever beenwe are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*ckedthe 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 couldnt even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. Whats going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, its 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 didntand 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 #1 bestseller 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, freedomand 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 havent considered before. Its 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.

I've been trying to read this book for weeks now. I'm halfway and I'm bailing. This is nothing like his first book, it doesn't read as self improvement just him giving his opinions on religions and people. Not so much a book about hope as a book of everything that he sees as wrong with the world. #catsoflitsy Alice's timing was perfect to be in the photo!

Eyelit Yes - great timing for photo indeed! Love the pic 😻 1mo

Don't hope for better. Be better.

The book was well-written, it pulled me along and taught me a few things even as I disagreed with the core premise of it. Personally, I like the concept of hope and it has pulled me out of more than one rut. I can‘t equate it with both everything good and bad in humanity. I feel like hope paired with kindness would be a better solution than what the author expects regarding AI. I might suggest this book to a nihilist, but that‘s not me.

Unlike Mark‘s last book, this book is way different from what you would thought it would be. Too complicated at times ...! ! But powerful enough to put you down in deep thinking 💭 The facts and real incidents are really worth knowing. #selfHelpBook #psychologicalBook🎀 #book6of2019

Late check in for #BFC week 1. Happy to say I surpassed my fitness goal of 60,000 steps for a total of 71,597 steps!!! I am listening to an audiobook that I‘m having a hard time getting into and I've finished one of three books that I have on the go. Not a bad week. @wanderinglynn #BFC #BFCr2 #BFCphotochallenge

I keep zoning out. I don‘t think I‘m in the proper mood for this.

rretzler I have moments like that too. I usually just put it aside for awhile and come back to it when I'm in a different frame of mine. Sometimes it's taken me years to read a book! 🤣 4mo
Bookjunkie57 @rretzler yep. This came from the library so I‘ll return it tomorrow so someone else can enjoy it and likely check it out again in a few months. 4mo

Self control is an illusion.
Emotion is what drives us.
Hope may be our undoing more then our salvation...
Such an eye opening read that I just had to finish...

Has anyone read "The Subtle Art of not giving a f#*@"?

Absolutely excellent!
This book is well researched and well written. Manson is insightful and hilarious. While reading I felt both hopeful and nihilistic. This book challenges the reader in the best mind-expanding way. I imagine even those who disagree with the points of views presented here, would still come away having learned something and glad they did.

RamsFan1963 I didn't know he'd written another book!! I'll have to get this asap 5mo
sophierayton Yes, it came out on Tuesday :-) 5mo
