By the time I was halfway in, his smug attitude about things he frankly knows jack shit about were getting on my nerves. He made some excellent points, all of which have been made countless times by other, more competent writers. Regurgitating Eastern philosophy and existentialism while swearing a lot only gets you so far.

I found the use of fucks given and rejected, the puns and literary sense amusing at first, but the novelty rubbed off quite fast.
Afterwards the context seemed to be general and then bland to the end. Okay, I get the point; we get to choose our values, who we stand for and what we want it life. Get ready to say big NOs to trivial things that won't matter in the long run. Entitled people shall be decapitated and the erring placed on spikes. But these were things that we already knew, right? Well there was one thing para I found interesting.
Our generation is interconnected in more ways than we can imagine, be it communication opportunities locally or the internet sensation globally, but individually we feel more insecure than ever before. In a way our preceding generations were lucky, for if they had a shitty day, they accepted it and looked forward for the next day. Surely that is what I feel after reading the contents, to look for something better elsewhere. Andy Yes! Jun 22, PM. Mar 22, Amy Joseph rated it it was ok. Have you ever been in a bar and had a know-it-all tell you everything you need to know about life without any evidence to back up what he's saying?
That's what this book felt like. View all 23 comments. Sylvia Glad I am not the only one who found it pompous. Jun 23, AM. It's not as douchey as the title would have you think, and it's very entertaining. A lot of good advice for those, like me, who over-stress themselves about mostly nothing at all. I really loved it; I'll probably circle back to it a few more times in the future.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
View all 27 comments. In fact, my best friend had the below picture as my contact photo in his phone for years. So it should come as no surprise that I, like many, was drawn to this book, 1 Because it has the word "fuck" in the title. And, 2 Because it's bright fucking orange. That said, the chum was in the water for me already based on that alone. But when I got to this: I knew this book and I would be friends.
I am SO anti-participation trophy it's ridiculous. And, no, I don't care if that offends all the middle class helicopter moms and their special snowflakes. Your kid needs to learn how to lose. That's how character is built, my friends. And that's pretty much one of the major points in this book actually. That and, simply put, prioritizing where you put your emotional energy aka your fucks.
Stuff I have a solid a handle on already. But, full transparency, I read this out of curiosity and with a slim to none expectation of there being anything life changing to take away from it. Don't get me wrong, color me surprised, I thought this book made a lot of solid points.

And that's okay. She only texts me when she wants or needs something and, while we love and respect each other - we just aren't all THAT. As I said, it made good points - none of which the author attempted to claim creating - he just wrote it down in an easy, witty, sometimes offensive and conversational fashion with examples of his own life and personal epiphanies.
It did get a little ridiculous sometimes with how much he referred to his former "bangs all the ladies" behavior. We get it, you are a walking dream machine. He also definitely walked a fine line when discussing certain issues as they pertain to women. Feminists and just some women in general will NOT appreciate this book. Not gonna lie though, right or wrong, this book definitely appealed to my snarky, crass kind of humor, reminding me once again that I apparently have the personality and sense of humor of a dude.

In re: false memories and page False memories are absolutely a thing. But when the example you use to illustrate this fact is a 's feminist who falsely accused her father of abuse and you follow up with "in the early s and s hundreds of innocent people were wrongly accused of sexual violence under similar circumstances.
Many of them went to prison for it" you are being supremely irresponsible. The I'm not actually done yet, but this book is becoming more problematic by the page. But why people keep creating all those apps when we usually use just top apps? The very first one is a pillar of birth known as an idea. It is the first point of every new product. The second one is a pillar of knowledge. It is directly linked to the human behind the code. His or her knowledge and ability to efficiently overcome any error and make an app as good as possible from a technical perspective.
The third one is a pillar of determination. How persistent are people involved in a project? Will they take it to the end? And last but not least is a sacred pillar of business value and market need. And even when people have those two things some of them lack critical knowledge to make it happen I value determination more than knowledge. But almost every one of them lacks the fourth pillar.
It is the pillar of ability. I believe that if we are to blame something because we are constantly developing useless software all guilt falls down on developers not being able to recognize the right market needs and the right business model. Self-compassion has been linked to reductions in anxiety, physical pain, depression and the stress hormone cortisol. Today we have Robert Greene on the podcast.
