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.

This
is a complex reminder of all the things that we already know about ourselves and life. It isn't that we didn't know that we aren't immortal it isn't that we haven't been working towards our Legacy. This book is like a refreshing slap on the face about our own fears that are keeping us back from living the life we hope. It makes us question the deepness of our true values and where they come from. I also thoroughly enjoy the practicality of the language placements of curse words acerbic humor.

In this best-selling classic, child psychiatrist and coauthor of The Whole Brain Child, Daniel J. Siegel and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell explore the extent to which our childhood experiences shape the way we parent. Illuminating important research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, Siegel and Hartzell explain how the parent-child relationship directly affects brain development, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories to help them raise compassionate and resilient children.

This is a great way of being a trauma-informed parent. It is well written, easy to understand, and the authors'voices are calming, especially the female voice. I will be listening to this again to fully appreciate all the details that go into progressing into the parent I want to be.
