Mark Manson was raised in Austin, Texas. He graduated from Boston University with a degree in International Relations and Business in 2007. In the same year, he started blogging and quickly became well-known. Today, his site is read by more than 15 million people yearly.

Mark Manson currently lives with his wife in Los Angeles.

Quotes

Arslan Batyrovhas quotedlast year
To be happy we need something to

solve. Happiness is therefore a form of

action; it’s an activity, not something that is passively bestowed upon you, not something that you magically discover in a top-ten article on the Huffington Post or from any specific guru or teacher. It doesn’t magically appear when you

finally make enough money to add on that extra room to the house. You don’t find it waiting for you in a place, an idea, a job—or even a book, for that matter.

Happiness is a constant work-in-

progress
Jadahas quotedlast year
It’s not easy because you’re going to feel like a loser, a fraud, a dumbass at first. You’re going to be nervous. You’re going to freak out. You may get pissed off at your wife or your friends or your father in the process. These are all side effects of changing your values, of changing the fucks you’re giving. But they are inevitable.
Andreea Elenahas quoted2 years ago
There’s an old adage: I’d rather be judged by twelve than carried by six.

Highly highly recommend this book. It’d opened my eye on many truths and secrets about life, questioned my deeper values and metrics , it had motivated me to keep doing what i love even if it doesn’t make sense to others. And of course, give damns about things that really matter ❤

    Feels like a gateway to the big questions, I wouldn’t take this reading as a serious one rather as an amusing one.

    Another book who helps me to improve myself even more. I love the analogies to make the statements easy to understand. Good thing I've read this. I'm still gonna buy the hard copy.
