Needless to claim, this is not your ordinary self-help publication. As Manson claims, “I wanted to write a book that didn’t necessarily give people hope, but analyzes and investigates that deep desire to find hope. Because I think that desire to find hope is actually more complicated than we give it credit for.”
“We tend to think of hope as this universally good thing, he continues. “But like several points in life, I assume there’s a dark side to really hope, and also I wished to compose a publication concerning that.”
This does not suggest to quit hope, mind you. As Manson claims in guide, “Don’t hope for better. Just be better. Be something better. Be more compassionate, more resilient, more humble, more disciplined.”
Can we obtain an amen?
