This book inspires me a lot nowadays. It gained so much popularity due to its unique truthful content. Here’s my review of The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck.
Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck
Once in a while, I read books that are not related to school. Now that I’m working full-time and taking a break from school, I can read any book I like. But, let it be known that I mostly read non-fiction books that usually fall under the self-help category.
Why did I start reading this?
Honestly, I discovered that book through the artists that I admire. Also, from friends and acquaintances across social media and real life! They highly recommended it to me! So, I gave in. I bought a copy.
The genres I like when it comes to reading fall under this category. Books like this one share a more personal touch. It gives a sense of real talk that we all need. Authors seem to be just talking to us like they’re one of our close and trusted friends. They share their experiences and how they deal with things in life in their ways.
My friends who read this previously are very strong in suggesting this book. They said many positive things about the book, especially for creatives like me. It possesses a great power that anyone will need during their life. And honestly, I couldn’t agree more!
After finishing the book, I felt a change in the way I see things.
What do I think about it?
After reading the book for the first time, it gave me power over my doubts and other negative thoughts. For the past few years, I got these thoughts and doubts that hindered me from giving and doing the best in the things I do.
With work, I began doubting whether I could try writing in other niches I’m unfamiliar with. On the other hand, with calligraphy, I began to lose touch with practicing it. Then, I felt I had lost the skill to write creatively and beautifully.
The book helped me overcome all those, and I now view things differently. I began to think positively about my skills and picked up my favorite brush pen and journal. Then afterward, I saw myself writing again. I poured out all my unfiltered thoughts and wrote them down.
It felt liberating and very comforting. To those who find it hard to say words, it’s best for you to try writing it down and sending or giving notes to people you intend to communicate with.

As I previously mentioned, the book falls under the self-help category, and you can browse it in that particular bookstore section. Or, you ask customer service to access the book easily without tiring yourself.
However, for book lovers, we love the thrill of looking at it by ourselves. Diving from one shelf to another, getting lost among the various books we see.
Would I recommend it?
Yes, of course.
If you want a book to talk you out of negativities in life, this book is for you. This is certainly the real talk that everyone must hear. Some may find it hard to listen to the bare truths as it may hurt their feelings and themselves. However, we will struggle to grow if we keep on avoiding it.
Sugarcoating the truth may complicate things for you. It can distract you from the truth and prevent you from realizing your mistakes or your wrongdoings.
Some of our close friends may continue speaking to us frankly, and we don’t appreciate it. Maybe, you haven’t gotten used to it. Yet, it gives your relationship with your friends a strong connection or bond that may last a lifetime.
Now, what else?
Oh yes, try to read this or get the audiobook and listen to it! I promise it will give you a different outlook on life!
