Summary

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.

Summary

From the author of the international mega-best-seller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope. We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been - we are freer, healthier, and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked - the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education, and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.  What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t - and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the number-one best seller in 13 different countries.  Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom - and even of hope itself. With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before. It’s another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Summary

Le regard frais sur le bonheur ! Le best-seller hors du commun avec plus de 2 millions d'exemplaires vendus.  Dans ce guide d'auto-assistance définissant notre génération, un blogueur superstar, Mark Manson nous explique comment cesser d'essayer d'être "positif" pour atteindre le vrai bonheur. Pendant de nombreuses années, on nous a dit que la pensée positive était la clé d'une vie heureuse et riche. Mais... "Soyons honnêtes, la merde arrive dans la vie de chacun et il faut vivre avec" dit Mark Mason. Ces conseils sont une dose de vérité brute, rafraîchissante et honnête qui fait cruellement défaut aujourd'hui. L'art subtil de s'en foutre est son antidote à la mentalité morose de "soyons heureux" qui a infecté notre société. Manson avance l'argument, soutenu à la fois par des recherches académiques et des blagues, selon lequel l'amélioration de nos vies dépend non seulement de notre capacité à transformer des citrons en limonade, mais plutôt de notre capacité de mieux les digérer. Dans son best-seller l'auteur propose de : connaître vos limites et de les accepter, savoir affronter de douloureuses vérités, comprendre vos peurs et vos incertitudes, trouver les réels courage, la persévérance, l'honnêteté et la responsabilité. L'art subtil de s'en foutre c'est votre chance d'oser être heureux à votre façon et de mener la vie plus réjouissante, plus ancrée.

Summary

Pourquoi sommes-nous plus déprimés et anxieux que jamais ? Nous vivons une époque intrigante. Nous sommes plus riches et en meilleure santé que tout autre peuple de l'histoire de l'humanité. Nous avons accès à la technologie, à l'éducation. Et pourtant, un sentiment général de désespoir nous envahit : tout semble foutu. Si quelqu'un peut mettre un nom sur notre malaise et nous aider à le résoudre, c'est bien Mark Manson. Dans son nouveau livre audio, s'appuyant sur la psychologie et sur la sagesse philosophique, Manson dissèque la religion et la politique, examine nos relations avec l'argent, les divertissements et Internet, et constate qu'une trop bonne chose peut psychologiquement nous dévorer vivant. Il défie ouvertement nos définitions de la foi, du bonheur, de la liberté - et même de l'espoir. Avec son mélange habituel d'érudition et d'humour, Manson nous met au défi d'être plus honnêtes avec nous-mêmes, et connectés avec le monde d'une manière que nous n'avons probablement même pas envisagée avant. Voici un nouveau guide à contre-courant de tout ce que vous avez lu auparavant, pour mieux apprivoiser la douleur dans nos cœurs et le stress de notre âme.

La sottile arte di fare quello che c***o ti pare

Summary

Per decenni ci hanno ripetuto che il pensiero positivo è la chiave per avere una vita intensa e felice. "Fan***o la positività", afferma Mark Manson. "Cerchiamo di essere onesti, ogni tanto le cose non vanno come avremmo voluto, ma dobbiamo imparare ad accettarlo". L'autore, blogger seguitissimo, dice le cose come stanno: una dose di cruda, rinfrescante, pura verità. Il concetto sostenuto nel libro, avvalorato da studi accademici e arricchito da aneddoti di vita reali, è che migliorare la nostra vita non dipende dalla nostra capacità di affrontare con falsa positività le difficoltà che incontriamo, ma dall'imparare a riconoscerle. Una volta che abbracciamo le nostre paure, i difetti, le incertezze, possiamo cominciare a trovare il coraggio, la responsabilità, la curiosità, e il perdono che cerchiamo. "La sottile arte di fare quello che c***o ti pare" è uno schiaffo in faccia a chi non vede l'ora di risvegliarsi da un triste torpore e vivere secondo le proprie aspirazioni.

Summary

"This colorful page-turner puts artificial intelligence into a human perspective. Through the lives of Geoff Hinton and other major players, Metz explains this transformative technology and makes the quest thrilling." (Walter Isaacson, author of The Code Breaker) Recipient of starred reviews in both Kirkus and Library Journal The Untold Tech Story of Our Time What does it mean to be smart? To be human? What do we really want from life and the intelligence we have, or might create? With deep and exclusive reporting, across hundreds of interviews, New York Times Silicon Valley journalist Cade Metz brings you into the rooms where these questions are being answered. Where an extraordinarily powerful new artificial intelligence has been built into our biggest companies, our social discourse, and our daily lives, with few of us even noticing. Long dismissed as a technology of the distant future, artificial intelligence was a project consigned to the fringes of the scientific community. Then two researchers changed everything. One was a 64-year-old computer science professor who didn’t drive and didn’t fly because he could no longer sit down - but still made his way across North America for the moment that would define a new age of technology. The other was a 36-year-old neuroscientist and chess prodigy who laid claim to being the greatest game player of all time before vowing to build a machine that could do anything the human brain could do. They took two very different paths to that lofty goal, and they disagreed on how quickly it would arrive. But both were soon drawn into the heart of the tech industry. Their ideas drove a new kind of arms race, spanning Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and OpenAI, a new lab founded by Silicon Valley kingpin Elon Musk. But some believed that China would beat them all to the finish line. Genius Makers dramatically presents the fierce conflict between national interests, shareholder value, the pursuit of scientific knowledge, and the very human concerns about privacy, security, bias, and prejudice. Like a great Victorian novel, this world of eccentric, brilliant, often unimaginably yet suddenly wealthy characters draws you into the most profound moral questions we can ask. And like a great mystery, it presents the story and facts that lead to a core, vital question: How far will we let it go?
