  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

  • A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

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 book is true to the language of the title. Once I got past that; I loved the concept. I realize now what is important and what just drags us down. Stay and listen to the last 10 minutes no matter what.

The only thing I disliked was that he brought up being a "world class gymnast" too many times. I guess he wanted to qualify himself.

The narration was good. It was funny at times and kept my attention.

I have listened to this title several times and I always get more out of it.

What would have made Universal Knowledge and Connection with Hypnosis, Meditation, Relaxation, and Affirmations better?

The music in the background was not relaxing. It was kind of scary. The affirmations were like an evil spirit talking through the noise. I am sorry I bought this and will never listen to it again.

What didn’t you like about Joel Thielke’s performance?

Really creepy.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Racing in the Rain to be better than the print version?

The narration was wonderful. It made the dog become real.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Enzo, the dog, he had amazing insight.

What does Christopher Evan Welch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He gave Enzo a voice and a personality that reading couldn't do.

If you could take any character from The Art of Racing in the Rain out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Denny's wife out to dinner. She needs to know to go to the Dr. and get her final wishes in writing.

Any additional comments?

I LOVED this book!

What made the experience of listening to People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It! the most enjoyable?

Once Larry gets past putting everyone in the world down he breaks things into chapters. While I can't wear stillettos I appreciate that one should look for qualities in a mate that are compatible with their likes and dislikes. Wish I had this book 25 years ago!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Some of the idiots he describes. The ones that annoy everybody. Especially on planes and in restaurants.

Which character ??? as performed by Larry Winget ??? was your favorite?

Larry Winget. Once you listen, I need say no more.

What did you learn from People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It! that you would use in your daily life?

A ton of stuff! The people I hang out with, mostly.

Any additional comments?

I wish he would narrate ALL of his books. I love the two I have.

Being a parent is the toughest job in the world, especially with the increasing number of negative influences and pitfalls facing our kids today, from childhood obesity and out-of-control celebrity culture to the dangers of the internet and credit card debt. Larry Winget has never been one to shy away from tough truths, and what he says here may well be difficult for some parents to swallow: we are in the midst of a crisis with our kids.

Jason Steadman is a 30-year-old sales executive living in Boston and working for an electronics giant, a competitor to Sony and Panasonic. He's a witty, charismatic guy who's well liked at the office, but he lacks the "killer instinct" necessary to move up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling. Jason's been sidelined.

This program goes from an art gallery, to boating, and back. It's not like those scenes flow into each other. The background noise should be barely heard, it is sometimes louder than the vocals.

I love the accent. His voice is very comforting. I also agree that Audible ruined the sleep cycle by their ending. I also wake up startled to the ending Audible message. Take that out and I'd give it 5 stars.
