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.

Expensive Whiskeys for those with deep pockets

1. Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch (Matheson 1942) – $58,000

Alexander Matheson built what would become the legendary Dalmore Distillery back in 1839. In 1942, this particular Scotch whiskey was released by Dalmore to honor Matheson. Just 12 bottles were made, which is part of what makes the Matheson 1942 Dalmore Scotch so expensive. Inside is an exquisite whiskey that’s bold and unlike any other. You’ll have to find this one at a private collector’s auction, and if you do expect to pay $58,000 or more.

2. Glenfiddich 1937 – $71,700

Glenfiddich 1937

Glenfiddich 1937 is a very rare single malt Scotch whiskey with interesting, rich notes of molasses, chocolate, cedar, burnt heather, and oak. Its composition is exquisite, and this particular vintage was drawn from a cask that was made in 1937, hence the name. That same cask has been cared for by generations since, and the Glenfiddich 1937 still stands as an example of one of the best whiskeys in the world. In the nearly 80 years since the Glenfiddich 1937 was made. Only about 60 bottles remain and all can only be found at auction.

The handful of people who own Glenfiddich 1937 typically don’t dare to drink it. However, those who have thrown caution to the wind and indulged have described the bronze colored whiskey as being quite remarkable. The highest price that Glenfiddich 1937 has fetched at auction is $71,000, which occurred in 2012.

3. The Macallan 1926 (Fine & Rare) – $75,000

Macallan’s Fine & Rare collection of whiskey highlights its oldest and best vintages. Think of it as the distillery’s history in a glass. The oldest of the Fine & Rare collection is The Macallan 1926, and it’s the earliest release from the distillery. A small number of bottles are released each year, which has pushed this particular vintage’s value up to $75,000.
