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.

Excellent premise, but poor follow-through

Liked the idea, but not enough meat on the bone. Spent a lot of time retreading the same ground.

Pimsleur won't make you literate, but it will help you understand and speak a new language.
It's a great reinforcement tool in the car, but would be best coupled with, or preceding, Duolingo (free) or Rosetta Stone (expensive)
