Item arrived in good condition since the packaging is good. Highly recommended.
At times this book made me feel very called out. I think, no, I know, I needed it. There were plenty of moments it made me laugh out loud, and more moments that made me question myself and want to sit alone and think. I'll be carrying this book with me (physically and mentally) for some time.
A few years ago, during a disagreement with my wife, I assumed a leadership stance by reading a book. While seeking to cool down, I engaged in meaningful work on my truck, all the while absorbing the audiobook version. As the book reached its conclusion, she emerged, and I responded with a loving embrace and a kiss. It was then that the realization dawned upon both of us: we had been needlessly amplifying a minor issue. Life is replete with circumstances beyond our control, and they tend to magnify their impact on us. I learned the importance of relinquishing unnecessary burdens and flowing like a leaf on the wind. Staying resolute on the path I had forged, impervious to external influences, became my mantra. I made a conscious choice to cease fixating on inconsequential matters that squander our precious time. In the grand scheme of things, the only true constraint we face is time, and I resolved to invest it judiciously.
It's just a typical self-help book, but with unnecessary profanity. I was bored with this book before I finished the first chapter, so I took it to Goodwill.
So good I can't wait to share and read the next ones. Inspired and wholly enlightening. Thank you Mark Manson
I love this book and have gifted it to friends I knew would enjoy it despite not liking to read. Definitely worth your time.
This book is great for anyone who wants to understand how to better their life in a way that isn’t normally discussed in our modern society.
This book is pretty sophisticated despite the down to earth approach. The concepts of Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and stoicism are baked into the philosophy espoused in this book. The first concept taught is to take responsibility for your problems with the acknowledgement that you probably aren't at fault for all of them. Deal with your life's problems, i.e. take responsibility, is the fundamental cornerstone of psychology going all the way to its founding. The second concept is to chose your values then life suffering won't be so bad since your suffering is for a purpose of accomplishing your values. This is Acceptance Commitment Therapy in a nutshell. Third concept taught is to recognize your mortality and accept your eventual death because it is a compass for testing the worth of your values you live by.
The veracity of the third concept is a little harder to prove as "true" but it has definitely been important in my life. When I was in law school, I did legal research into the lawfulness of certain CIA programs during the Bush administration. Another law student in my class was doing research on the legality of NSA programs so our professor warned us to keep careful notes because we were getting government attention. I was expecting a raid of my dorm room, but instead got shot at by a suppressed carbine walking on the campus of MSU. Obviously, I backed off my legal research but the criminality of the Bush administration became legendary. The experience of facing death affected me going forward as a lawyer in a strangely positive way. When I took the bar exam and other students were puking their guts out due to fear, I was non-pulsed by the whole exam experience. The proctor asked me why I wasn't upset, and I said "well, I've been shot at in anger so failing is exam is no big deal. I can just take it again. No big deal. There is no do over if you are killed." You need to look at life's problems in the same way to keep you grounded.
When You Tube's mighty algorithm sent me the preview for the movie based on this book, I was curious and rented it. I really loved the movie, which was mostly just Mark Manson narrating the highlights of his book while stock images and animation played in the foreground. I decided to borrow a copy of the book from my local library.
Unfortunately the book is not nearly as good as the movie.
The first three chapters read like a thirteen year old internet edge lord trying to get up voted on Reddit. Lots of insults and sarcasm to try to sound funny but just comes across as being rude. I think this was done intentionally. The book was published in 2016, when the online "manosphere" was at its peak, and I believe he was trying to get his foot in the door of that industry (clearly it worked, as evidenced by his book sales). He gives a lot of millennial hate, which was also all the rage on the internet in 2016. Seeing as he was born in 1984, it makes him come across as a bit of a pick me. There was even a rant about participation trophies (which as this millennial can attest to, was something forced on us by our boomer parents and we wanted nothing to do with).
After chapter three you can tell that a lot of time passed between writing chapters because the edge lord tone is gone but it gets replaced by someone who is reflecting his own insecurities on the world. It feels like he's telling himself to stop being a loser. His advice was vague and wasn't delivered well, but you could feel a sense of self loathing as he wrote it. And I really can't emphasize that his advice wasn't delivered well. It felt contradictory at times, being told to not care but to also care sometimes.
In the second to last chapter he gives advice on relationships that feels really hyper-individualistic. I don't think he was trying to come off that way, but I kind of felt bad for his wife when I was reading it. While he was trying to encourage people to not be dependent on their spouse, he sounded like he didn't care about them at all.
The movie came out seven years after the book was published, so Manson has had many years to grow and mature and it shows. His message was much more polished, and he definitely wasn't coming off as an edge lord. The advice was given in a way that made a lot of sense and wasn't needlessly vague. Instead of preaching a sense of hyper-individualism (which I think went away after seven years of muturity), his advice is to treat people better and he shows his personal experience of what happens when you don't (the part about being friendless for four years really hit hard). A lot of the advice from the book is in there, but Manson does a much better job of making the advice make sense in the movie than the book. I bought the movie and plan on rewatching it from time to time as a reminder to not let stupid stuff drag me down, and to remember that the solution to problems is to actually work to solve them. Really can't recommend the movie enough.
Psychological pain is just as painful as physical pain.
Everyone has values that can be represented as an onion. One must ask themselves the right questions and give honest answers to fully peel back the layers.
What you’re values are and how one measures themselves is one of the most important parts about a person. Should value yourself over characteristics rather than things outside your control like “will everybody like me” or comparing myself to others.
Up to you to make the best choices in life regardless of the hand you’re dealt with.
Must take self-responsibility.
How you perceive your identity where anything that changes with what that identity is will try to be avoided.
Action can spark inspiration and motivation.
