Blogger and master of personal development advice “that doesn’t suck,” Mark Manson, explains why you shouldn’t care what others think or hide from adversity. His writing style is irreverent and unapologetically profane. If 127 occurrences of the word “fuck” seems excessive, this is not the article for you. For those who can get past his linguistic choices, he offers genuine insights into the habits that cause people to care too much about the wrong things. His playful style encourages self-reflection without angst. getAbstract recommends Manson’s perspective to readers with an interest in personal growth and a sense of humor.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why “not giving a fuck” is not the same as being indifferent,
- How having realistic expectations can free you from anxiety and
- Why it’s important to care about something bigger than your problems.

2 years agoI love how he makes the distinction between indifference and NOT being overly concerned with what others may think of your actions to the point where those concerns unduly influence what you think, feel and do. Moral courage comes to mind.
