In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger shows us that the key to being stronger and happier is to stop trying to be ?positive? all the time. In this international bestseller, Mark Manson shows us how ?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?this, he says, is the real source of empowerment. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties?once we stop running from and avoiding, and start confronting, painful truths?we can begin to find the courage and confidence we desperately seek. ?In life, we have a limited amount of fucks to give. So you must choose your fucks wisely.? Manson brings a much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eyes moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor. This ground-breaking manifesto is a refreshing slap in the face for all of us, so that we can start to lead more contented, grounded lives.
