<p><strong>#1 <em>New York Times</em> Bestseller</strong></p><p><strong>Over 1 million copies sold</strong></p><p>In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.</p><p>For decades, we鈥檝e been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let鈥檚 be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn鈥檛 sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is鈥攁 dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k</em> is his antidote to the coddling, let鈥檚-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. </p><p>Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited鈥?quot;not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. </p><p>There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k</em> is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.</p>

<p><strong>NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER</strong></p><p><strong>INDIE BESTSELLER</strong></p><p></p><p><strong>A laugh-and-cry-out-loud memoir from the beloved star of Netflix鈥檚 Queer Eye, Jonathan Van Ness</strong></p><p>Who gave Jonathan Van Ness permission to be the radiant human he is today? No one, honey.</p><p>The truth is, it hasn鈥檛 always been gorgeous for this beacon of positivity and joy.</p><p>Before he stole our hearts as the grooming and self-care expert on Netflix鈥檚 hit show Queer Eye, Jonathan was growing up in a small Midwestern town that didn鈥檛 understand why he was so鈥ver the top. From choreographed carpet figure skating routines to the unavoidable fact that he was Just. So. Gay., Jonathan was an easy target and endured years of judgement, ridicule and trauma鈥攜et none of it crushed his uniquely effervescent spirit.</p><p><em>Over the Top</em> uncovers the pain and passion it took to end up becoming the model of self-love and acceptance that Jonathan is today. In this revelatory, raw, and rambunctious memoir, Jonathan shares never-before-told secrets and reveals sides of himself that the public has never seen. JVN fans may think they know the man behind the stiletto heels, the crop tops, and the iconic sayings, but there鈥檚 much more to him than meets the Queer Eye.</p><p>You鈥檒l laugh, you鈥檒l cry, and you鈥檒l come away knowing that no matter how broken or lost you may be, you鈥檙e a Kelly Clarkson song, you鈥檙e strong, and you鈥檝e got this.</p><p></p>

<b><b>Instant #1 </b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> Bestseller & </b><b><i>Wall Street Journal</i></b><b> Bestseller</b><br /><br /><b>In </b><b><i>The Obstacle Is the Way</i></b><b> and </b><b><i>Ego Is the Enemy</i></b><b>, bestselling author Ryan Holiday made ancient wisdom wildly popular with a new generation of leaders in sports, politics, and technology. In his new book, </b><b><i>Stillness Is the Key</i></b><b>, Holiday draws on timeless Stoic and Buddhist philosophy to show why slowing down is the secret weapon for those charging ahead.</b></b><br /><br />All great leaders, thinkers, artists, athletes, and visionaries share one indelible quality. It enables them to conquer their tempers. To avoid distraction and discover great insights. To achieve happiness and do the right thing. Ryan Holiday calls it stillness--to be steady while the world spins around you. <br /><br />In this book, he outlines a path for achieving this ancient, but urgently necessary way of living. Drawing on a wide range of history's greatest thinkers, from Confucius to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius to Thich Nhat Hanh, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, he argues that stillness is not mere inactivity, but the doorway to self-mastery, discipline, and focus.<br /><br />Holiday also examines figures who exemplified the power of stillness: baseball player Sadaharu Oh, whose study of Zen made him the greatest home run hitter of all time; Winston Churchill, who in balancing his busy public life with time spent laying bricks and painting at his Chartwell estate managed to save the world from annihilation in the process; Fred Rogers, who taught generations of children to see what was invisible to the eye; Anne Frank, whose journaling and love of nature guided her through unimaginable adversity. <br /><br />More than ever, people are overwhelmed. They face obstacles and egos and competition. <i>Stillness Is the Key </i>offers a simple but inspiring antidote to the stress of 24/7 news and social media. The stillness that we all seek is the path to meaning, contentment, and excellence in a world that needs more of it than ever.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare 鈥?poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him 鈥淭he Fittest (Real) Man in America.鈥?lt;br /><br />In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.

<b>The face of autism is changing. And more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick.</b><br /><br /><i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i>, an intimate memoir, reveals the woman inside one of autism鈥檚 most prominent figures, Jennifer O'Toole. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman.<br /><br />Beyond being a memoir, <i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i> is a love letter to all women. It鈥檚 a conversation starter. A game changer. And a firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos).<br /><br />Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism "looks a bit different in pink," most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. <i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i> takes that message to the mainstream.<br /><br />From her own struggles and self-discovery, she has built an empire of empowerment, inspiring women the world over to realize they aren't mistakes. They are misunderstood miracles.

<p><strong>From the author of the international mega-bestseller <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck</em> comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope. <br /></strong><br />We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it鈥檚 ever been鈥攚e are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked鈥攖he planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn鈥檛 even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. </p><p>What鈥檚 going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it鈥檚 Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck</em>, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn鈥檛鈥攁nd worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the 鈥渟ubtle art鈥?of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries. </p><p>Now, in <em>Everthing Is F*cked</em>, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom鈥攁nd even of hope itself. </p><p>With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven鈥檛 considered before. It鈥檚 another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come. </p>
