A waste of time, and money.

The book is superficial and lacks substance. Just another of those books that are more interested in making money rather than trying to give value and useful knowledge.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

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.

Helps thinking people (that's a precondition) reorientate or reinforce (depending on one's values) their world view for a worthwhile journey in life.

Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and Bill Gates have proclaimed Artificial Intelligence as a possible threat in the future unless humans learn to use it wisely. Could this be true? Is it possible for us to create artificial intelligence programming so that we'll soon have thinking and feeling AI? Is it even possible for us to have a human-looking AI run for president in the future? All of these questions and thoughts are addressed in Artificial Intelligence: Understanding A.I. and the Implications of Machine Learning.

This book predicts the decline of today's professions and describes the people and systems that will replace them. In an Internet society, according to Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind, we will neither need nor want doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, lawyers, and many others to work as they did in the 20th century.

The book is an in-depth study into the nature. present issues and future of the professions. There are a number of interesting perspectives, although it's a bit too academic in approach and long winded. A higher dose of practicality and more specific picture of the future would have earn it another star.
