    Why You Should Read a Book About 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.

    Everthing Is F*cked draws from mountains of psychological research, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato and Nietzsche, to dissect religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. It looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. It openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

    With a mix of erudition and where-the-fuck-did-that-come-from humor, Everything Is F*cked 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 on our soul. A book that will continue to set the agenda for years to come.
