<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’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a 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’s-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—"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>

<DIV><B>Tim Ferriss, the #1 <I>New York Times</I> best-selling author of <I>The 4-Hour Workweek</I>, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book—a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life.</B><BR /><BR /><B>From the author:</B><BR /><BR /> In 2017, several of my close friends died in rapid succession. It was a very hard year, as it was for many people.<BR /><BR /> It was also a stark reminder that time is our scarcest, non-renewable resource.<BR /><BR /> With a renewed sense of urgency, I began asking myself many questions:<BR /><BR /> Were my goals my own, or simply what I thought I should want?<BR /> How much of life had I missed from underplanning or overplanning?<BR /> How could I be kinder to myself?<BR /> How could I better say “no” to the trivial many to better say “yes” to the critical few?<BR /> How could I best reassess my priorities and my purpose in this world?<BR /><BR /> To find answers, I reached out to the most impressive world-class performers in the world, ranging from wunderkinds in their 20s to icons in their 70s and 80s. No stone was left unturned.<BR /><BR /> This book contains their answers—practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Whether you want to 10x your results, get unstuck, or reinvent yourself, someone else has traveled a similar path and taken notes.<BR /><BR /> This book, <I>Tribe of Mentors</I>, includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. Less than 10% have been on my podcast (<I>The Tim Ferriss Show</I>, more than 200 million downloads), making this a brand-new playbook of playbooks.<BR /><BR /> No matter your challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help.<BR /><BR /> Among other things, you will learn:<BR /><BR /> • More than 50 morning routines—both for the early riser and those who struggle to get out of bed.<BR /> • How TED curator Chris Anderson realized that the best way to get things done is to let go.<BR /> • The best purchases of $100 or less (you'll never have to think about the right gift again).<BR /> • How to overcome failure and bounce back towards success.<BR /> • Why Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton believes that the best art will always be the riskiest.<BR /> • How to meditate and be more mindful (and not just for those that find it easy).<BR /> • Why tennis champion Maria Sharapova believe that “losing makes you think in ways victories can’t.”<BR /> • How to truly achieve work-life balance (and why most people tell you it isn’t realistic).<BR /> • How billionaire Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz transformed the way he engages with difficult situations to reduce suffering.<BR /> • Ways to thrive (and survive) the overwhelming amount of information you process every day.<BR /> • How to achieve clarity on your purpose and assess your priorities.<BR /> • And much more.<BR /><BR /> This reference book, which I wrote for myself, has already changed my life. I certainly hope the same for you.<BR /><BR /> I wish you luck as you forge your own path.<BR /><BR /> All the best,<BR /><BR /> Tim Ferriss</DIV>

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of <i>Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, </i>and <i>The Gifts of Imperfection</i></b><br /><b><br />HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK<br /></b> <br />“True belonging doesn’t require us to <i>change</i> who we are. It requires us to <i>be</i> who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In <i>Braving the Wilderness,</i> Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.<br /><br /> Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.”

<b>This #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.</b><br /><br />Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?<br /><br />Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). <br /><br /> With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A story-driven collection of essays on the twelve powerful phrases we use to sustain our relationships, from the bestselling author of <i>Glitter and Glue </i>and<i> The Middle Place</i></b><br /><br /> <b>“Kelly Corrigan takes on all the big, difficult questions here, with great warmth and courage.”—Glennon Doyle</b><br /><br />It’s a crazy idea: trying to name the phrases that make love and connection possible. But that’s just what Kelly Corrigan has set out to do here. In her <i>New York Times</i> bestselling memoirs<i>,</i> Corrigan distilled our core relationships to their essences, showcasing a warm, easy storytelling style. Now, in <i>Tell Me More,</i> she’s back with a deeply personal, unfailingly honest, and often hilarious examination of the essential phrases that turn the wheel of life.<br /><br /> In “I Don’t Know,” Corrigan wrestles to make peace with uncertainty, whether it’s over invitations that never came or a friend’s agonizing infertility. In “No,” she admires her mother’s ability to set boundaries and her liberating willingness to be unpopular. In “Tell Me More,” a facialist named Tish teaches her something important about listening. And in “I Was Wrong,” she comes clean about her disastrous role in a family fight—and explains why saying sorry may not be enough. With refreshing candor, a deep well of empathy, and her signature desire to understand “the thing behind the thing,” Corrigan swings between meditations on life with a preoccupied husband and two mercurial teenage daughters to profound observations on love and loss.<br /><br /> With the streetwise, ever-relatable voice that defines Corrigan’s work, <i>Tell Me More</i> is a moving and meaningful take on the power of the right words at the right moment to change everything.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Tell Me More</i></b><br /><br /> “It is such a comfort just knowing that Kelly Corrigan exists: she is somehow both wise and self-deprecating; funny but unafraid of pain; frank but gentle. She is the sister/mother/best friend we all wish we could have—and because of this big-hearted book, we all get to.”<b>—Ariel Levy, author of <i>The Rules Do Not Apply</i></b><br /><br /> “With full-bodied humor and radical sensitivity, Kelly Corrigan transforms the mundane pain of life into a necessary spiritual text of sorts, one that reminds us that we have the right to grieve but the obligation to be grateful. This book will remind you that you are human—and of the fragile loveliness of being so.”<b>—Lena Dunham<br /></b>

<b>Every man is born with just one thing: his sovereignty - his power to respond to his environment and his circumstances.</b> Unfortunately, most men have spent much of their lives giving away that sovereignty. Every time a man passes blame or shirks his responsibility, every time he makes excuses for his performance, and every time he trades his unlimited potential for a little perceived safety and security, he willingly submits himself to the mercy of others.<br /> <br />Is it any wonder that men, in general, seem to have lost their way? You don’t have to look very far to recognize that men don’t seem to possess the same amount of vigor and purpose they once did. Take one sobering statistic—the rate of suicide in men—and you begin to see how damaging the effects of the voluntary subjugation of men to their families, their businesses, and their governments can be.<br /> <br /><b>It’s not hard to understand why we give up control to others</b>—it’s easy and we’re expected to. <i>Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men</i> is a call for men to once again rise up and establish themselves as they once were—a revolution if you will.<br /> <br />Inside the pages of this book, we’ll uncover the battle each man will inevitably engage in, the external forces fighting against the call to masculinity, and the internal struggle all men must overcome. <br /> <br /><b>But make no mistake, this revolution is not a call for men to go their own way and rally against society.</b> It’s a call for men to become fully the men they are meant to be so they may more adequately take care of themselves and those they are responsible for. Men have always been expected to protect, provide, and preside over themselves, their families, their businesses, and their communities. <br /><br /><b>By embodying the thirteen Sovereign Virtues we detail inside</b>, every man will be more capable of fulfilling his masculine duties and responsibilities. <br /> <br />The words in this book go well beyond principle and theory, however, as we build the framework for establishing a battle plan to combat the external and internal threats to our masculine power and give every man the tools, resources, guidance, direction, and ability to reclaim what has always been his: his sovereignty.<br />
