“Mark Manson has succeeded in explaining a crazy world to an entire generation by invoking hard science, moral philosophy, and gobs of hilarious wit. This book is guaranteed to make you laugh, question your beliefs, and (hopefully) change your life.”
~Nir Eyal, Bestselling Author of Hooked and Indistractable
In Everything Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self, and looks outward to explore the root causes behind the endless calamities taking place in the world around us.
If you have ever felt overwhelmed by current events or the increasing speed of modern life, this book is your guide and your tool to a deeper understanding. It will help you learn, maybe laugh, and hopefully evolve a personal strategy for thriving amidst the disorder and contradictions.
Drawing on mountains of psychological research, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato and Nietzsche, 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.
“Mark Manson continues to break down questions about human happiness and well-being in creative and unexpected ways. The result is a wonderfully accessible book that tackles some of the deeper questions about where our world is headed, as well as how to take better care of ourselves (and each other) until we get there.”
~Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Columbia University and Host of The Psychology Podcast
