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

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—”not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault.” Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Amazon aims to crush clothing retailers with Amazon ‘Prime Wardrobe’

Amazon, which has been making a big push into selling clothes, is testing a new service that lets members of its Prime program try on styles before they put items on their charge card — at no upfront fee.

Here’s how it work:

  • Customers have seven days to decide what they like, and
  • Pay only for what they keep
  • Shipments arrive in a re-sealable box with a pre-paid label for returns.
  • Customers get 10 per cent off if they keep three or four items, or 20 per cent off for five items or more.

A decade ago, Jeff Bezos said “In order to be a $200 billion company we’ve got to learn how to sell clothes and food.”  Amazon is already a $200 billion company, but maybe this will help it get to a trillion.

Amazon buying Whole Foods for $13.7B

Amazon will pay $42 US a share or $13.7 billion in cash for Whole Foods’ shares, a 27 per cent premium to what Whole Foods was worth on Thursday.

Amazon’s own shares gained $23.54 US in reaction to the news on Friday to close at $987.71 US on Nasdaq.

Whole Foods shares closed at $42.68 US on Friday — just above the offer price, which suggests some investors think a better offer from someone else could be coming. The grocer must pay a $400 million US break fee if the deal falls apart.

The company recently rolled out a few locations of something called Amazon Go, which is essentially a small grocery store with no cashiers.
