    What Smart People Are Saying

    Praise for ‘The Subtle Art’

    Resilience, happiness and freedom come from knowing what to care about—and most importantly, what not to care about. This is a masterful, philosophical and practical book that will give readers the wisdom to be able to do just that.

    #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Stillness Is the Key, The Obstacle Is the Way, and Ego Is the Enemy

    Mark’s ability to dig deep and offer amazing, yet counter-intuitive, insight into the challenges of life makes him one of my favorite writers, and this book is his best work yet.

    Matt Kepnes
    New York Times bestselling author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day and Ten Years a Nomad

    The opposite of every other book. Don’t try. Give up. Be wrong. Stop believing in yourself. Follow the pain. And oh yeah, kill yourself. Each point is profoundly true, useful, and more powerful than the usual positivity. Succinct but surprisingly deep, I read it in one night, and now need to read it again.

    Derek Sivers
    Entrepreneur, TED speaker, and author of Anything You Want and How to Live

    This book hits you like a much-needed slap in the face from your best friend: hilarious, vulgar, and immensely thought-provoking. Only read if you’re willing to set aside all excuses and take an active role in living a f***ing better life.

    Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles credited Mark Manson’s bestseller “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F—” for helping her prioritize her own needs over the expectations of others.

    Olympic gold medalist, as quoted in The New York Post

    Hilarious, confronting and damn refreshing, it’s more than a practical guidebook to choosing what’s important or unimportant in our lives, it’s a brutally honest and much needed reality check about our personal problems, fears and expectations. A counterintuitive approach to living a better life!! A good kick in the arse that I needed!

    Chris Hemsworth
    Actor, AKA, Motherfucking Thor

    [Manson’s] book always just takes me back one or two steps and renews my perspective on situations because I’m a hyper focused individual when I get onto goals and tasks and things that I want to deliver. Like I sometimes get the blinkers on in such an intense way that I can lose perspective on things around me. So I’m really a lot more aware and conscious of that now.

    Grant Hackett
    Olympic gold medalist

    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

    Banned by Dictators, Exalted by the Free World

    The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck took the world by storm, selling almost 2 million copies in its first year alone. It was #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list and is still in the Top Ten six years after being published. It has been translated into 65 languages, including Russian, which was banned by Putin himself. It’s the book your mom dreams about when she takes a bubble bath at night—unless she, too, is a fascist pig.

    The Subtle Art presents an entirely new approach to personal development, from top to bottom. Life is not about getting rid of problems, it’s about finding better problems. It’s not about avoiding failure, it’s about getting better at failure. It’s not about knowing everything, but becoming more comfortable in not knowing anything.

    The Subtle Art is all about coming to terms with all of the inevitable unimportant imperfections in life and then choosing to not give a f*ck about them. It’s about learning how to give a f*ck about the few things that truly matter.
