Putting It Bluntly

Mark Manson wants the generations whom social media and consumer culture affect most to question what they see and believe, to grow up, and to prioritize their values. He promises the process will be painful and challenging, but worthwhile.

This book hit the New York Times bestseller list in October 2016 and has remained there since. By May 2020, it had been a bestseller for astonishing 179 weeks. Mark Manson obviously found the voice his audience seeks and trusts.

That voice is blunt, straightforward and surprisingly intelligent. It strives to convince you that Manson is a fount of commonsense knowledge that you understood in your gut, but needed someone to explain to you because so many other voices – the idiot wind of ever-present self-help books, blogs, TED talks and TV shows – drown out your own. And Manson proves convincing.
