Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope
by Mark Manson
The book offers an original view on hope and the feeling of hopelessness that overrides the modern world. This feeling of hopelessness has become prevalent despite technology and progress consistently making life better.
The author explains how and why we generate hope and how it is changed and maintained throughout life. To get to a better understanding, he uses the theories of the greatest philosophers, sociologists, and even physicists, applying them to the world of values and pain.
The second part of the book is an attempt to understand what life without hope might look like. It is an honest look at the modern world and everything that is wrong with it, which makes us feel that everything is f*cked.
