In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be positive all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. 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. Manson makes the argument, backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited - ´´not everybody can be extraordinary; there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault´´. Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives. 1.

Parents these days are under a great deal of pressure to be ´´perfect´´. From psychologists to social scientists, journalists to weekend bloggers, everyone has an opinion about the do´s and don´ts for raising healthy, well-adjusted - and let´s not forget polite - children in today´s fast-paced world. Where does this leave parents? Too often lacking in confidence, ill equipped, and overwhelmed. Parenting expert Vicki Hoefle makes the bold claim that it´s time for parents to get off the perfection path and get back to the real job of parenting: to grow a grown-up. In this no-nonsense parenting guide, Hoefle draws upon 25 years of experience with helping parents see the big picture and sidestep what she calls the ´´detail drama´´ that too often trumps everyday life with our kids. Parents learn more than just strategies; they learn a methodology that allows them to help their toddlers build a strong foundation for success in adulthood. In her trademark, tell-it-like-it-is style, Hoefle tells parents to trust their intuition and develop an intentional strategy for meeting each child´s unique needs. Above all, The Straight Talk on Parenting offers the confidence-boosting reminder that parenting is about practice (and a healthy dose of humor), not perfection. 1. Language: English.

Please note: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes´ Summary, Analysis, and Review of Mark Manson´s The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--k: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life includes: Summary of the book A review Analysis and key takeaways A detailed "about the author" section Mark Manson, a massively successful dating advice and travel blogger, has written The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--k to address what he perceives as a major gap in the self-help market. Manson, who has been helping blog readers and clients with their problems for nearly a decade, has isolated a critical, recurring issue: people do not know what to give a f--k about. The book begins with an evaluation of f--k-giving (the profanity is intentional; Manson wants to make sure his points are made in as concise and punchy a way as possible). The author himself, although from a wealthy family in Dallas, struggled with the divorce of his parents and spent many years drifting around, never quite certain of what his priorities in life should be. Along the way, Manson romanced hundreds of women and visited 55 countries. Even so, he hadn´t yet sorted out what values he should give a f--k about and what values didn´t matter quite so much to him. He hadn´t yet had the "practical enlightenment" he believes is the key to humanity´s spiritual well-being. He was very confused about life, even as his online businesses had begun to prosper, because he hadn´t accepted suffering as a natural condition of life. Once he realized that suffering was inevitable and the only things he had control over were his reactions to that suffering, he became, in his words, "spiritually invincible". 1. Language: English.

Halden Zimmerman, a successful blogger with a wealth of professional experience in mechanical engineering and corporate leadership, discusses the methods and techniques aspiring bloggers can apply as they seek to achieve long-term financial security through their blogging career. With the release of Halden Zimmermann´s Guide to High-Impact Blogs for Life-Changing Income, beginner and veteran bloggers alike are able to benefit from the unique and data-driven approach developed by Mr. Zimmerman with the explicit goal of creating a stable source of life-changing income. Unlike other blogging guides and programs, Mr. Zimmerman´s ´´high-impact´´ approach is based on the concept that increased income cannot be truly life changing if the income increase comes with greater responsibilities or increased demands on time. The goal of high-impact blogging is to generate a significant source of income that only requires an initial investment of time during the planning and implementation stages. Once the blog debuts and begins to earn income, an effective high-impact blog will consistently generate revenue without demanding a continued time commitment. Through practical advice and personal insight gleaned from his first-hand experience as a blogger, Mr. Zimmerman espouses a step-by-step approach that begins with the pre-planning stages and concludes with the explanation of several strategies for expansion to platforms beyond blogging. Detailed explanations of commonly overlooked technical aspects abound, and Mr. Zimmerman outlines a strategy that clearly values the establishment of a strong foundation based on a thorough planning process. The attention to detail recommended by Mr. Zimmerman throughout the planning stages is critical for bloggers seeking to create a passive source of income through their blogging platform. 1.
