What's it about?

Everything is F*cked takes an unchained approach to the contemporary human situation and the reasons many people believe that the world is much worse than it is. Mark Manson examines concepts such as hope and the entrapments of modern society to show how people tend to focus on things other than what is important in life, taking inspiration from Friedrich Nietzsche and Immanuel Kant, two of the brilliant minds of human philosophy.
