The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy
From the author of the international megabestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope.
We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it's ever been, yet somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly fucked. What's going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it's Mark Manson. In Everything Is Fucked, Manson draws on mountains of psychological research, as well as on the timeless wisdom of philosophers from Plato to Tom Waits, to dissect religion, politics, money, entertainment, and the internet.
With his usual mix of erudition and humor, Manson challenges us to be more honest with ourselves, openly defying our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom--and even of hope itself. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.--Eric Barker, bestselling author of Barking Up the Wrong Tree

His second book "The subtle art of not giving a F$%#" was a huge drop off in quality. I read his second book a few years ago and there are two things I remember about it. First, I felt kind of tricked into getting the book because it had a "catchy" title. Second, I remember that he frequently contradicted his own statements so the book had no cohesive message.
I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to write this one because I feel like I was tricked again.
The book (again) has a catchy title that really isn't necessary. The book (again) frequently contradicts itself so I did not take away a cohesive message. The worst part of this book was that it became very clear to me that this is just a random guy writing his own thoughts. He is not an expert.
That might be why I enjoyed the first book so well. The first book he was writing about something that he was an expert in, something he had a lot of experience with and something he wrote authentically.
It does that while covering existentially terrifying concepts like "Life is pain" and "Nothing matters"
and while covering free will and the self
and while covering some of the most fundamental philosophical ideas from Plato to Kant to Nietzsche
and while covering the source of all religions, ideologies, and personal relationships
and while covering the terror of global self-destruction via nuclear war etc. and the unfathomable power of Artificial Intelligence which will rule over us as gods
and while covering the effect of the internet given all of these things
and while covering how you could respond in the face of all this.
In the acknowledgements he implies that with this book he bit off more than he could chew... and then chewed it.
I'll be chewing this book for years to come.
This time though, in my opinion, he just set his sights too high. To go after religion and deep philosophical questions one needs to be at least fairly knowledgeable in scripture and acquainted with works of serious philosophers of religion.
Starting from the chapter about the “Emo Newton” it gets really boring. When it gets to religion, it’s just a string of platitudes and superficial conclusions so common for mainstream media. I couldn’t read it through to the end.
