Life-essential lessons
from the book
that changed my life

The key takeaways from Mark Manson’s “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”, commented and expanded on by yours truly.

I loved this book so much,
I got it as a gift for all my friends

This essay is not quite the same as the book, because it’s turned into something more.
