    true freedom doesn't really exist because we all must sacrifice some autonomy for stability. no one, no matter how much you love them or they love you, will ever absolve that internal guilt you feel simply for existing. it's all fucked. everything is fucked. it always has been and alw...

    The book was a meaningless string of random thoughts and stoic philosophy and meditation. It was funny at parts, but mostly just a few interesting stories and cliches that are set up as being new insight. Also, I don't buy stoicism and meditation as a way forward. I am still interested...

    Absolutely excellent! This book is well researched and well written. Manson is insightful and hilarious. While reading I felt both hopeful and nihilistic. This book challenges the reader in the best mind-expanding way. I imagine even those who disagree with the points of views present...

    I read Mark Manson?s first book and I really liked it. So when I saw that he wrote a follow up, I was eager to read it. But I did not enjoy this one nearly as much. It was just not as interesting to me. ...

    Arg, it's really difficult for me to rate this a 3-star. (UPDATE after more thought and discussion, this isn't a 3-star, it's a 2-star) This isn't a "book" in my opinion. It's more of a collection of essays, "blog posts" and articles you'd see on HuffPo (or perhaps NPR). There ar...

    This book?s thesis has already been written. Many times. This is stoicism. This is Nietzsche. This is Kant. This fact does not reduce the subject's interest whatsoever. I post 2 reviews below: A Pop Culture Full Metal Alchemist Review (recommended if you have some symptoms of A.D...

    Unfortunately, my impression as that the further Mark deviates from dating and relationship advice, the poorer the quality becomes. I respect the effort as Mark's simple dating related advice doesn't need any additions :). Ther book lacks a coherent thread, perhaps even more so tha...

    Did not finish. He starts off by mentioning the holocaust, how people had "real" problems back then, compared to us who are now weeping at minor inconveniences behind closed doors: crying for an ex, crying because someone was rude to us, etc. I find this comparison disgusting and I me...

    There are more things Mark gets wrong in this book than he gets them right... Oversimplification of very complex ideas, curse words slipped in unnecessarily simply because they worked in his first book, disjointed writing - one minute he's talking about hope, the next he's on to relig...

    Just as good as the first, a little more broad but still asks the reader to question themselves. Mandatory reading if you want to break your conditioning. ...

    I skimmed through a lot of this. It seems to me like he did a lot of philosophical research, then gathered a bunch contemporary themes, threw them in a mixing bowl and voilą! sequel! This just wasn't for me. If you are looking for something remotely hopeful, I would recommend not pi...

    I read in English but this review is written in Bahasa Indonesia "The fact is that we require more than willpower to achieve self-control. It turns out that our emotions are instrumental in our decision making and our actions. We just don't always realize it." Sukses dengan buk...

    I wish I had enjoyed this book more. I really wanted to. I so enjoyed Mark's first book, I had high hopes for this one. Alas, I found it uninspiring, and without much direction. Lots of rambling, with famous people from history thrown in, for which I never saw the connection. It fe...

    Smart and funny, this book will help you make sense of your mind and the world we live in If you liked Subtle Art, you'll enjoy this too. I couldn't put it down, actually, reading it in under a day. Mark has a talent for taking potentially boring subject matter, such as the teac...

    Can someone please remind me never to pick a Mark Manson book again? The writing is insufferable, he grossly oversimplifies ideas that need a more nuanced view, makes preposterous generalizations about mental health and related concepts, and generally makes you wonder what his point re...

    After reading Manson's other book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck", I was looking forward to another insightful read into the subtle art of "gonzo self-help" that has become pervasive in the past few years. There were some high points (his Nietzsche and Kant sections as well as "W...

    It ends more with a dismal whimper than a hopeful bang. Why do we need to workship at the altar of AI gods not dog? AI is an newfangled product of human creation manipulated and controlled by our high capacity fellow beings not some divine superior flown down from the olympic heaven. ...

    If I were to ask someone to ?give it to me straight? in terms of life, humanity and our future potential, this book would be it. Amazing read, push through the first few chapters and you?ll see how it all ties together in the end! ...

    This book will not be a well loved book. I only say this because as a person who has read a lot of his articles as well as his previous book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, there are a lot of concepts in this book that can be perceived as radical, and possibly downright offe...

    The follow up to 2016's The Subtle Art of brings Mark's trademark writing back in full force; it reads like a frat boy telling you summed up pop science at a party. Sometimes it's amusing but after more than a few minutes you just want to start talking to somebody else. Mark sums up...

    After loving The Subtle Art, I found this a real disappointment. It was very dry and lacking the playfulness of his first book. I also found it hard to track the overarching ?story? of the book, it felt more like a jumbled collection of articles. Just couldn?t connect to it in an...

    Something is very wrong with the world. It?s us. We have abandoned our quest for character in favour of one for happiness and we have created a world of diversions that give the illusion of freedom but in fact keep us docile and imprisoned. Manson has written a book that will stay...

    Needlessly convoluted. Includes terms like "God value" and "emotional altverse Issac Newton". (???) Been following Mark Manson's content in the early days and this was a huge disappointment -- this time, Mark gets lost with his thoughts with his head far too down his ass. ...

    "Greater commitment allows for greater depth. A lack of commitment requires superficiality." First of all, if you are looking for a book that will give you hope about something, then just don't continue reading this. This book is not about hope. It is anti-hope. And I understand ...

    Everything is Fucked is a much more mature book than his last. While in the last book we looked at things we shouldn't care about, this book more focuses on what to care about. And I have to say that this book was really well done, and in my opinion, better than his last. This book ...

    I really wanted to like this book. As a fan of Mark Manson, I enjoyed his at-times comical writing style and humorous anecdotes in his other books. Yet, this felt stale. The book is lazy. It's essentially a bunch of repackaged Nietzsche and Harari stuffed together without any flow w...

    How this guy keeps getting published I will never understand. Why I keep reading his books is something else I cannot understand. However, I saw it was marked 50% off at B&N, so I went ahead and bought it. I have read through it while doing cardio after lifting and can say that it ...
