    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.

    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Pisces the Fish, the zodiac’s charming substance enthusiast. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. Being Pisces, you will be grievously hurt and disappointed that you have been so falsely represented, deny everything, and blame the rest of the zodiac. You may sue.  
    What can you expect in this short, yet vitriol-packed e-volume? Prepare to break bad. Here’s the checklist (partial - you think we give this stuff away?) 
    * Bitch factor? You got it. 
    Likewise
    * Annoying habits 
    * Deadly sin of choice 
    * Your love life. Hah. 
    * Your criminal career 
    * Your road rage
    
    Plus clever charts showing just how incompatible you are with everybody else in every conceivable aspect of life. Of course it’s not your fault. It never is. Find out which planet/s is/are responsible for your cosmic awfulness, and blame it/them. And you get to find out who famously shares your sector of the darkness, just so you have a role model if you begin to stray towards the light.  
    Until now only available to the discerning in tree-based form, the darkside has gone e-side so you can read all about your dark self without having to lift a finger to turn the page. Buy one for yourself (and wallow in delicious shame) or, even better, for your friends/enemies/frenemies/office nemesis and send it to them anonymously. That would be very darkside.

    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Aquarius the Water Carrier, the zodiac’s resident heartless alien. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. Although fascinating, it doesn’t bother you, because you’re on a gap year from Alpha Centauri and have diplomatic immunity, so it doesn’t really matter how you behave.

Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. Although in your case Scorpio, the thin line between bright and dark is, well, very thin, although the rest of the zodiac would never actually tell you that, at least not to your face.
