Read The World

I would read every last book on this planet if I could. Rationally knowing that I can't, I'll sure try to read as many books as possible before my time's up!

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life - Mark Manson

I recently finished listening to "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" in audible. I used to listen to a little while of it whenever I walked my dog, and it took me quite a long time to get to the end. 

 

I found this book to be very fun to hear. It has many interesting ideas and views that actually make you reflect for a while on how you see the world, in a hilarious but honest way. Some of the main focuses are how you choose your values (how you measure yourself and your success) and, well, how you choose what to give a f*ck about. Mark Manson's narrative voice kept me engaged at all times, as he did not leave his ideas in just theory, but used anecdotes (many times funny, many times painfully honest) and examples to help explain his point. I personally loved all the historic figures and various people he mentioned to illustrate his ideas. Reading or listening to a narrator who was not afraid to curse or to laugh at himself was very refreshing, and in my opinion this was a great companion for my walks.
