If you liked Subtle Art, you’ll enjoy this too. I couldn’t put it down, actually, reading it in under a day.
Mark has a talent for taking potentially boring subject matter, such as the teachings of philosophers, and bringing it to life in easy-to-understand language (with plenty of expletives).
I especially liked his Consciousness Car metaphor in explaining the Thinking Brain vs Feeling Brain (would love to see an animated cartoon version), and thoughts on antifragility and how we benefit by choosing to accept (and even seek out) discomfort in our lives.
If you’ve been feeling like the world is a mess (especially in terms of politics) lately, this book can help you make sense of what’s going on. And, it includes some takeaways we as individuals can use to help make a positive difference for ourselves, and by extension, society.
