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.

Rehash of his old article about starting a cult to make you happy, thinking fast and slow, picking good values, and a bit about ARtificial intelligence as future religion.

Good concise overview of boundaries and assertiveness. Better advice in other books, but worth a listen.
