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.

What if Eve, the mother of all humankind, had blogged? What if she had shared her discoveries of the newly formed world, her experiments as the first scientist, and her travels as the first explorer? What if she shared the secrets of assisting the first man without damaging the first fragile male ego? What if we could enjoy with her the first falling in love? Perhaps she did. Perhaps we can. Perhaps somehow Mark Twain plucked that first ´´blog´´ out of the cosmic ether.... Music: ´´Scheming Weasel´´ composed and performed by Kevin McLeod. 1. Language: English.

A quirky, entertaining and thought-provoking tour of the unexpected connections between words, read by Simon Shepherd. What is the actual connection between disgruntled and gruntled? What links church organs to organised crime, California to the Caliphate, or brackets to codpieces? The Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth´s Inky Fool blog on the strange connections between words. It´s an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening. 1.
