Everything is F*cked Unabridged: A Book About Hope CD – Version intégrale, 24 novembre 2020
From the author of the international mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope.
We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it's ever been--we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked--the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn't even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.
What's going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it's Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn't--and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the "subtle art" of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.
Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, 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. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom--and even of hope itself.
With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven't considered before. It's another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.

The book did introduce some ideas worth reflection such as the idea and need for hope, the differences between our Thinking and Feeling Brains. But generally speaking, I found it to be a manipulative style of writing, where opinions are at times overstated as facts and subtly squeezed between actual facts, giving the reader the impression that it’s all one big fact. Another thing that was disappointing about this book was the number of extensive footnotes added as notes at the end of the book. Don’t get me wrong, no one loves footnotes more than I do, but I like them as footnotes, not as references. I found this both deceiving and annoying while reading. One superscript went on for 3.5 pages as a reference. The reason why I found it deceiving is because while some of the superscripts are just references to articles, research or other books, many others are just an opinion such as “Granted he suggested it hypothetically…”p. 257 or “ I’m being a bit dramatic…” P.253 which changes the entire understanding of the paragraph. It was annoying for the obvious reason that once you found out that many of the references are in fact just additions to the writing that actually do change your understanding of it, it was frustrating to have to keep flipping back and forth to read the notes. There was also a lot of nonsensical circular logic in many of the arguments he arrogantly made. I think his Feeling brain fully took over in certain paragraphs or maybe mine is while writing this.
