March Book Club Pick: 'The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck" by Mark Manson

Refined Reads is a monthly bookclub from KOMO News' lifestyle website and television show, Seattle Refined. Want to be part of it? Sign up here (don't worry, we won't spam you with emails - just alerts to discussion dates, special events and books of the month)!

March comes in like a lion...a lion who doesn't give a you-know-what! This month we're doing something different on several levels, first of which is that - for the first time - we're reading a self-help book.

Of sorts.

"The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck" by Mark Mason is making all of the national top lists, and is described as a counterintuitive approach to living a good life.

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.

This should be good! We're also changing up the discussion format.

This month, we're coming to you! We are going to find a book club out there, ask them to read this book, and be a fly on the wall for their discussion.

Do you think your book club would be interested? Email us at, we need to pick a book club to shadow soon!
