From the author of the mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope – Everything is Fucked. He draws from a pool of psychological research to examine the countless calamities occurring in the world today.
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 fucked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter.
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 Fuck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that our maddening urge always to find happiness only serves to make us unhappier. And 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 bestseller in thirteen countries.
Now, in Everything Is Fucked, Manson turns his gaze to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as on the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics; looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet; and reveals how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive.
