Everything is F*cked
Mark Manson is one of my favorite authors. I swear I would marry his brain. This book is his philosophy of life, he has so many ideas on how to get the best out of life and they really get your brain working. I love to hear different views of how we should live and he certainly gives you a lot to comprehend in this book from his view of how to be happier to his predictions of the future. He also outs the emotional and the thinking brain into terms everyone can understand and when he understands these two brains we can merge them together to obtain emotional stability. If you like to think and some better conversations with people this is a great read!
