In this book, blogger and former internet entrepreneur Mark Manson explains in simple, no expletives barred terms how to achieve happiness by caring more about fewer things and not caring at all about more.
He explains how the metrics we use to define ourselves may be the very things holding us back. By redefining our metrics, questioning ourselves and doubting everything, we may be able to find that we're better off than we think, and thereby become happier people.
