"While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their images with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition." (From the prologue)

Its an honest and humble book from Ryan Holiday about the reality and risks of ignoring our Ego. In this world of competition, financial stress and the need for personal recognition to feel self satisfied; we must understand that there is a real Ego that is inside us and will most likely push us in wrong directions that will not allow us to live a long and fulfilled life. It’s an easy read full of wonderful examples. I love the idea of sweeping away the ego everyday just like you would your house.

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.

Thank you Thich Nhat Hanh for showing me the path to living a good life. Your teachings will be imprinted inside me and I will transmit them to others through my actions. I hope this book is read or listened by the whole world every year if possible.
