Read full description of the books:
It's not a good sign when I call it quits in the middle of a 2 hour audiobook that I'm listening to at 2x speed while cleaning the house... In other words, this was background chatter, and it was such annoying bullshit that actually made me delay my next load of laundry just so I could turn it off, "review" it, and put something else on.
This is half "He's Just Not That Into You"/ half "Be The Best You Can Be"/ half pseudo-intellectualism/ three-quarters self-absorbed bullshit/ zero to do with nerddom. I know that the math is wrong there. But believe me, it fits. This "book" goes from telling you to be grateful for what you have, find the things in your life that are good and then be thankful for them, and let people know that you are, because it will be rewarding in its own right and you'll be happier for it, to telling you to be miserable, find all the shit things in the world and make yourself purposely miserable about them so that other people will want to make you feel better, and will try to pick you up and help you out. This book goes from saying "believe in your abilities because they are greater than you give yourself credit for" to "You have abilities, but they require work, so fuck it, be a miserable little bitch and let other people shove confidence down your throat in an effort to make you a functioning human again."
This book doesn't even know what it's trying to be. Seriously, is this book giving "BE MISERABLE" as advice in how to be confident? That's about the time that I gave up on this shit. Though I started furrowing my brow and giving my phone the stink-eye when in the space of 5 minutes the author threw the phrase "I don't/won't tolerate _____" out there 8 dozen times, each time sounding more and more like a self-important asshole.
Short version: You're not confident because you don't stick to your "personal values" and therefore you tolerate bullshit [that he doesn't tolerate, because he's better than you].
Well kudos to you, Mark Manson. You've converted this girl! I took your expert advice and I no longer tolerate bullshit. That's why I stopped listening to your bullshit book.
