This is a summary and not the original book.

I am a big fan of Jocko mostly because of his direct no bull shit approach to everything and that’s what I got this book. After hearing the first chapter, I couldn’t continue anymore. The narrator reads the book as if he is trying to sell me something, it almost feels like an infomercial. Really hard to hear specially after I already heard Jock narrate his last book extreme ownership and several of his podcast. I don’t doubt this audiobook is filled with good stuff but unfortunately you have to get passed the silly narration voice.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, 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*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

I feel like the book assumes the reader is a pessimistic looser. I constantly found myself getting pat on the back to tell me life doesn't have to be that bad. I'm my case I'm really optimistic and I didn't find value for me in this book . This book however could be a really good read for people that see the glass half empty
