Everything Is F*cked
- A Book About Hope
- By: Mark Manson
- Narrated by: Mark Manson
- Length: 7 hrs and 2 mins
In Everthing Is F*cked, Mark Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive.
5 star Philosophical soft-porn for the masses.

Ohhhh boy, this book is going to be controversial AF. I loved it but believe it went on a bit to long to make a point out of our flaws. It's pretty obvious the people who are aware of technology know the inevitability of AI thats why elon has been pro regulation. Going as far as to calling it a god is the part people will struggle with while reading this book regardless of the countless evidence of how people act (blue dot experiment). I honestly just want a chance to sit down with Manson and pick his brain. The concept of holly wars being waged in the 21 century sounds crazy but makes rational sense. Manson nailed it, while most people will only try to ridicule his work I believe the biggest takeaway form the book should be recognizing the thinking brain vs the feeling brain. This will help us make better decisions and maybe just maybe get to the adult phase he talks about, this can lead to greater comprehension and a decent world while the new religion does its thing.
