Let me start off by saying that this book by Mark Manson is hands down one of the few books that has had an immense influence on me in the last 37 years, and I have not read a page of it yet!
The title sums up everything in a very succinct and simple style than what the rest of the 224 pages can give you. By all means go ahead and read the rest of the book. I'm sure it would be good stuff. I don't give a f#@$.
You can apply the learning in your career dealing with not so nice bosses or colleagues, building healthy relationships. You get the drift? Hell, you can implement this even when you're driving through crazy traffic. No, I don't mean you can run over that jaywalker or crash into that auto rickshaw. That can land you in jail or worse, scratch your ride. The keyword is "subtle". But hey, who am I to tell you.
So, why is an amateur photographer who is mad about birding, wildlife and street photography suddenly go off track and write a book (cover) review you might ask. Go ahead and see if it makes any difference. No one gives a f#@$ what you like to do or what efforts and money you put into getting the (limited) gear, travel and time off from your day job or family to go make those images. It doesn't matter, that there is seldom any payoff at all from all this to show off or justify the money and time invested. Hell, even the birds who I madly adore and stalk don't give a f#@$ and fly off when they see me a kilometer away. They don't care I paid dearly to rent that heavy ass lens I lug around in the hot sun trying to get just a little closer to get a decent frame.
So, does this bother me? Yes. Will I stop doing it? No. Why? I like doing it. Does it make sense? I don't give a f#@$.
P.S. In case you are wondering why I have used such language or why I have not apologized for using it, scroll right up and read the title again. Thanks and cheers.
