The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
The self-help book for people who hate self-help books. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck is all about self-improvement not through avoiding problems or always being happy, but rather through engaging and improving upon problems and learning to accept the occasional unhappiness. It’s a radical departure from anything else you’ve ever read, and that’s what makes it so powerful.
“An in-your-face guide to living with integrity and finding happiness in sometimes-painful places. … This book, full of counterintuitive suggestions that often make great sense, is a pleasure to read and worthy of rereading. A good yardstick by which self-improvement books should be measured.” – Kirkus Reviews
Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope
In Everything 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 on mountains of psychological research, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato and Nietzsche, 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.
“Mark Manson continues to break down questions about human happiness and well-being in creative and unexpected ways. The result is a wonderfully accessible book that tackles some of the deeper questions about where our world is headed, as well as how to take better care of ourselves (and each other) until we get there.”
– Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Columbia University and Host of The Psychology Podcast
Love is Not Enough – Audiobook
Follow the stories of five people brave enough to sit down with me and air out their relationship problems. We wade into some heavy and, at times, harrowing topics like trauma, abuse, sexuality, and loss. But through all the stories of pain and heartache, we also uncover some universal truths about healthy relationships and how to find them. Join me on this crazy audio adventure, where we learn that despite all its gains and glories, love is not enough.
“I’d be lying if I said that voyeurism wasn’t part of the appeal of this liste—which allows you to be a fly on the wall during these very candid conversations—but sprinkled throughout are Mark’s on-point observations and subtle (!) instructions on how to f-up your life by making bad decisions about who to pair off with.” – Courtney Reimer, Audible Editor

It’s the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. Stop acting like an attractive man and BE an attractive man.
