  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

  • A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, 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*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

really good book. enjoyed the content the most. the reader was a bit mundane at times but it's ok. the content made up for it.
perhaps a few too many anectodes of his personal life but in the end they always made sense and we're an integral part of the story.
overall verdict. I will listen to it a second time perhaps in 6months or so.
worth the money !!

I promise you this, if you read this book and apply it's principles, you will have so much more success with women. Imagine, all of the cash you are leaving on the table by not understanding how to get what you want! Imagine, all of those dates, with so many hot girls that you didn't go on simply because you couldn't text right! Seriously, texting incorrectly can crush your chances with women permanently. I can't tell you how many women have vented to me their frustrations at what you are doing.

Chatter will show you step by step how to become the person who can build intimate rapport with anyone they meet, expertly work a room, win instant friends, and project a winning image that people will flock to. This isn’t a book of one-liner conversation topics and generic "you can do it" tips that other books would have you believe will make you successful. Through my 20 Chatter principles, you will learn to master skills that will make you shine in everyday interactions.

It really delivers what it says.
The sample doesn't given the book any credit. The sample is boring. The sample is only the introduction. The rest of the book is a bunch of useful tips anybody can use in every day life.
Going to listen to it again for sure!

Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing is a long-term guide for anyone who wants to become a rich investor and invest in what the rich invest in.

If you like Rich Dad Poor Dad books, you will also like this one. Some people argue that he repeats a few things a lot and he does but I think it's a good think because they are important concepts that need to be iterated over and over again.

If you want to learn about money management, investing, assets, liabilities and much more, this book is for you.
Will definitely listen to it again!

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life.

Short but straight to the point.
Very useful information.
Lots of it you kind of already know but the author points out the importance of those facts perfectly.
If you like self development books you will not be disappointed
