  • "Fabrice Midal's book is powerful, yet playful, challenging and at the same time comforting.  It can transform the way you look at your life as a whole, and the way you live this moment."
    -Tal Ben-Shahar

Be calm... Stop stressing... Embrace the universe... Try Yoga... Be fulfilled... - and that's an order! We're overwhelmed with these sorts of commands and we often torture ourselves to "try harder," yet never feel that we've done quite enough. Fewer people than ever are able to control the stress of modern living.

And while the remedies leave us feeling guilty, there is in fact a real solution much closer at hand. In The (French) Art of Not Giving a Shit, with great clarity and sparkle, Fabrice Midal debunks the most common demands and fears,opening the way for readers to... well, give themselves a break.

"Twenty-five years of studying meditation, and fifteen years of
teaching it, have not taught me how to be wise. I have, however, learned
the art of letting go... of giving myself a break."
