This book is brilliant. In fact I dare say the people that like this book are aged anywhere from 18-30. Any higher and the reader is succeptible to getting annoyed at the use of language and the writing style the author chose. If you choose to look past this then you will take a lot from this book. The swearing and childish ideas are used to relate with the reader. Unfortunately the younger generation are used to this type of writing and in that, this book is so easy to read, almost sounds like your mate is giving you some killer advice rather than some educated dickhead attempting to give you a life lesson and to further that this book would definitely open the younger generation up to a wider market of self help literature.
I'm 21 and I would love to read another self help book, not to hear a load of naughty words, but to better myself. I think some of the reviewers here have the let their judgement be clouded by use of profanity and silly anecdotes.
You might not like this book but if you bought it when you knew the title read
'The Subtle Art of not Giving a Fuck'
And you complain about the profanity then frankly you're a fucking idiot anyway and you are not going to find solace in reading a self help book.
Anyways this book is excellent, excellent to those who want to learn, but want learning to be adaptive and fun rather than dreary and boring.
