The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fck, a counterintuitive approach to living a good life, is the first book by blogger and author Mark Manson and it was a breeze with a lot of long-forgotten stories, liberal doses of advising considering the former dating guru were giving some pointers and a weird mixture of John Gray/ Paulo Coelho to give a self-help book par excellence. It is not too hard to imagine why Mark Manson was a superstar blogger and why the book was a natural progression to his proclivities.

The book was published by HarperOne, a part of the Harper Collins publishers in 2016 and has gone to get worldwide popularity with the ease of writing and the fact that the liberal font size and spacing do not make it too laborious a read. The reason why I wanted to read it is that it was the rage in the office with a few of my colleagues raving about it and I had to get my hands on it.
The writer definitely has a flair for writing but also because he can relay advise which does not preach and is relatable to a millennial growing up in an age where they can video calls before they can say gaga, pun unintended.
Definite read over the weekend and something that can be done with no strings attached or a feeling of guilt.
