My Personal Manifesto

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

The book that has had the biggest impact on me the past year is Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. I loved this book so much I gave it to every friend as a gift. My 18-year-old son Jonah read it and gave it away as birthday gifts to his friends.

I read it twice – that was not enough. Then I listened to it twice on Audible. But even after going over the material four times I did not feel I had internalized it enough. To really understand it, I felt I needed to write about it… so I did.

My review is the size of five football fields – okay, no, it’s 7,000 words, the length of five articles. Actually it is more than just a review: It has turned into a personal manifesto.

But I wrote this in-depth review of the book as much for myself as for you, dear reader. So if you’re interested in reading it, you can.

I really don’t want this to be published online (I may use it in my next book), and so I’m keeping it in the PDF format.

Fill out this tiny form or send email to [email protected] and the PDF will be emailed to you.

Once you receive the PDF, feel free to share it with your friends and relatives, but please don’t post it online.
