The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
“Emotions are biological signals that lead you to beneficial changes.”
“If you feel like the whole world is against you, there is probably no one else against you but yourself.”
“Many people may be the cause of your unhappiness, but no one but you is responsible for your unhappiness because you choose how you see things, how you react, how you evaluate things. You set the benchmark by which to measure your experiences.”
“With great power comes great responsibility.”
As you can see from the quotes above, the book is a little different from ordinary self-help books because he doesn’t talk about how to be happy and how to look at life from the bright side. On the contrary, he makes it clear that trying to be happy all the time is wrong and that life can sometimes be too bad to bear. In this case, instead of denying negativities, he suggests accepting them and not worrying about them. With the voice of actor and theater actor İbrahim Selim, you can finish the book in 5 hours and 52 minutes.
