Everything is F*cked: Reflections on Hope and Travel with Mark Manson

Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope

“His first book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, became a runaway hit, selling over 8 million copies. (He wrote a post about how travel made him the person is today, which laid the foundation for that book.)

Now, Mark has a new book out today called, Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope. I received a copy to read in advance and it’s a really incredible book about philosophy and how to live a life of meaning and challenge in our modern times. It gave me some good food for thought about issues or perspectives I hadn’t thought about before. Today, Mark and I chat about his new book!”

The Ultimate Guide to ‘Game of Thrones’ Filming Locations Around the World

“HBO’s Game of Thrones is lauded for its lush world-building, and the visually stunning way production designers (and, you know, wig experts) have brought George R.R. Martin’s rich, complicated world to life. Game of Thrones is, after all, a study in mind-blowing landscapes: frigid wastelands and forests beyond the Wall, the amply-treed Kingsroad, turquoise waters across the Narrow Sea, and the sunny, medieval King’s Landing, to name a few.”

About Those Marriott In-Shower Dispensers

“I know many were up in arms over Marriott’s decision to switch from the small bottles of toiletries we could take to in-shower dispensers. Some of the arguments were related to not being able to keep unused product. Others, though, were (rightfully) concerned about sanitation and safety.”
