کتاب هنر ظریف رهایی از دغدغه ها

اثر مارک منسن از انتشارات میلکان - مترجم: میلاد بشیری-پرفروش های نیویورک تایمز

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. F**k positivity, Mark Manson says. Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it. In his wildly popular Internet blog, Mason 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**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault. Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

Well, that was different.

I’ve been seeing this book consistently on the Amazon’s Most Read charts. I like to browse this list because it shows you what people are actually reading instead of just what people are buying.

I find the list more useful than other bestsellers’ list because it tells me which books are engaging people, after all, we’ve all picked up a title and abandoned it after a few pages because it wasn’t interesting or compelling.

So, I went ahead and borrowed it from the library. This book offers a is a zero-nonsense approach to self-help concepts. I’ve heard most of it before but the author delivers the message in a concise, sorry-if-it-hurts, straight-forward way.

I found some of the advice helpful and I’m glad I read it. I understand now why it might resonate with many people and recommend it to those always seeking to improve themselves.

No he podido ni acabarlo.
Supongo que parte de la culpa es mía, que he visto una portada y un títulos llamativos y me he dejado llevar por el marketing.
A lo mejor hay personas a las que este libro les ayuda a mejorar su vida y que les abre la mente a nuevos horizontes y ¡Ey pues genial! Me alegra que alguien pueda disfrutar de la experiencia de leer este libro, pero no es mi caso por 3 motivos.
1. Discrepo con el 90% de lo que se dice en este libro.
2. La falta de bibliografía y documentación. @Esto es así porque yo lo digo que soy muy listo y [email protected] no me parece una justificación suficiente para que el autor hable como si todo lo que dice fuesen verdades absolutas. Me he sentido manspleineada por un libro. ¿Sabes ese hombre con el que empieza a salir tu amiga y quedáis un día los tres para que te lo presente y el tipo se tira toda la tarde hablando sin parar sobre lo mucho que le ha enseñado la vida y sobre cómo funciona el mundo sin ni siquiera preguntarte a qué te dedicas? pues una sensación parecida.
3. Los chascarrillos y comentarios RANCIOS y continuos que además son completamente innecesarios y que transmiten una serie de valores con los que no me puedo sentir identificada.
Este libro no es para mí.

I think The Subtle Art... might have had more impact upon me if I was 20-something instead of 59-years-old. The language isnt really an issue (it just becomes another word that doesnt even seem to have much meaning); its more that Manson is repetitive and doesnt offer anything original that most people havent learned for themselves in a few decades of experience. For me, the same ideas are expressed much more elegantly, cogently, and thoroughly in The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Cant Stand Positive Thinking.

DNF at 29%

By the end of chapter 1, I was ODing on the word fuck.

Unbelievably improbable as it sounds, my best friend Kara Gillian has nothing on this guy here. And that, my Little Barnacles, is saying a whole bloody fucking lot.

By the end of chapter 2, Id had it with Mark Mansons smug, narcissistic, sanctimonious, clichéd-to-death-and-back, infantilizing, everyone-but-me-is-a-fucking complete-dumbass, self-indulgent, shamelessly-repackaged-Eastern-philsophy-for-nitwits rubbish hogwash drivel poppycock balderdash gibberish sorry I ran out of polite synonyms CRAP.

By the end of chapter 3, I didnt give a bloody stinking fuck anymore. Yay! Mission accomplished and stuff!

P.S. Im so joyfully, blissfully happy I DNFed the fuck fish out of this one before getting to the sexist bullshit. Hadnt I displayed such amazing powers of prescience and precognition and stuff, the murderous crustaceans would have no doubt been slightly unleashed on a certain person who, come to think of it, probably would not have given half a quarter of a fuck about it, because he is so wonderfully detached like that.

Oh, and by the way:

My sister asked me to get her this and I’ve read it as well. It is basically the Buddha and Sartre giving advice by saying fuck every other word. Not a terrible thing, in itself, but a bit like seeing a play where all the actors are naked, the swearing loses its impact after about the third fuck, and then you’re just left with the advice.

I don’t normally read self-help books – the problem I have with them is the first word, more than the second. We generally all need some sort of help, but that rarely is helped much by any notion of ‘self’. Ultimately, this guy says much the same thing, which rather surprised me, but shouldn’t have – I’ve already mentioned Buddhism, which has a particularly low opinion of selfhood. But we are so obsessed with being individuals in our society that he probably didn’t feel he could just come out and say from the start – well, get over yourself, fuck face.

His advice is basically that you only have so many fucks you can give in life – but life tries to structure itself so that we are in a near perpetual state of outrage. And that way heart attacks lie. His advice isn’t to stop caring, that would be impossible, but to try to decide what you are going to care about and, well, do something about that. In some ways this isn’t too different from something I read by Byung-Chul Han recently – that outrage never changed the world, only rage can. So, pick what you are going to be enraged about and skip the outrage.

This isn’t a terrible book, in fact, most of the advice is quite reasonable. All the same, I feel most of the problems we face as humans are to do with the fact we are social animals and our lives are becoming increasingly insular – not least due to various forms of technology – and this is making us feel pretty awful about ourselves. We need to find ways to rebuild communities and meaningful human interactions. And we’ve known this for ages – have a quick read of Durkheim’s Suicide and his explanation of why Catholics and Jews have lower rates of suicide than Protestants. Our obsession with being individuals is literally killing us.

The fact this guy bases much of his advice on psychology, to me anyway, is part of the problem – I figure it involves him looking intently down the wrong end of the telescope – but all the same, this is a quick and easy read and parts of it are amusing.
