Summary

A special 25th anniversary edition of the extraordinary international bestseller, including a new Foreword by Paulo Coelho. 
Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations. 
Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

    A treasure trove of inspiration and guidance from the minister and million-selling author of The Power of Positive Thinking.   Norman Vincent Peale’s self-help phenomenon The Power of Positive Thinking continues to transform countless lives. The volumes collected here serve to expand and deepen Dr. Peale’s life-changing philosophy of positivity.  Have a Great Day: The philosopher, self-help innovator, and minister offers inspiration for every day of the year with an uplifting volume of positive thought to nourish our souls and spirits. From profound “thought conditioners” accentuating the everyday positive to “spirit lifters” devised to help us soar above our troubles, Dr. Peale’s affirmations are “daily vitamins” for our mental and spiritual health.  Positive Imaging: Building on Dr. Peale’s principles of constructive affirmation, this step-by-step guide shows you how to utilize a potent mental process called “imaging.” Keeping a clear and vivid picture of a desired goal in your mind until it becomes part of your subconscious will help you break through the barriers that block you from achieving harmony, happiness, and success—and allow you to actualize your objectives by releasing previously untapped inner energies.  The Positive Power of Jesus Christ: The revered pastor of the world-famous Marble Collegiate Church proclaims his unshakable faith in Christ the Savior through inspiring true stories of healing and hope. In sharing the ways in which his life and the lives of others have been profoundly touched and transformed by Jesus, Dr. Peale makes plain how “positive thinking really means a faith attitude . . . [and] only faith can turn the life around.”

    #1 New York Times Bestseller 
    Over 1 million copies sold 
    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**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked 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**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.  
    Manson makes the argument, backed both by 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**k 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**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
