Mark Manson isn’t one to mince words. In fact, it is his candor and sometimes shocking writing style (to some, at least) that has earned him a huge global following, and fame and fortune. There is no doubt that you will recall the title of his mega-bestselling book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck (selling over 10 million copies globally); and, its follow up, Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope, which also was a bestseller.
In Subtle, Mark, backed by academic research and colorful anecdotes, showed the key to living a happier life wasn’t trying to be “positive” all the time, but to better handle adversity.
“Let’s be honest; sometimes things are f’cked up and we have to live with it,” he noted. Indeed, many of us would identify with that sentiment, especially over the last year. “In life, we have a limited amount of f’cks to give. So you must choose your f’cks wisely.”
In the sequel, Mark tackled heady topics such as religion and politics while also taking a look at our relationships with money, entertainment and the Internet, arguing too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive.
With the success of the vaccine rollout and the resurgence of general optimism, the Club wanted to invite an erudite thinker to discuss a wide variety of issues. Manson will discuss the success of his books, dispense relationship advice (his Audible Original audiobook Love is Not Enough released last year) and share his thoughts about the issues of the day.
