Publisher's Summary

A positively rebellious take on a traditionally negative philosophy offers an antidote for our anxious times.

Career success, a beautiful life, a beautiful Instagram account - what's the point? In a world where meaning has become twisted into a form of currency that everyone is very keen to cash in on, journalist Wendy Syfret invites you to change the way you think about the way you think.

In her seminal work, The Sunny Nihilist, Syfret presents the optimism in nihilism, encouraging us to dismantle our self-care and self-centered way of living and accept a life more or less ordinary. Syfret reexamines the meaning of worth, value, time, happiness, success, and connection, and guides us toward the alternative path of pointless pleasure.

When you let go of the idea that everything must have purpose, you will find relief from stress, exhaustion, and anxiety. Most importantly, you can embrace the opportunity to enjoy the moment, the present, the chaos and luck of being alive at all. The Sunny Nihilist is an inspiring call to action and survival adaptation for modern life.

Find Another Book on Nihilism

The writer kept repeating words, referenced
quotes from shows plus Nietzsche or other philosophers, contradict themself by devaluing their book while trying to sell you on
Nihilism.

*To save anyone money and time on something else, she basically talks about living in the moment and how you can find value in whatever, but finds everything meaningless which sounds pretty paradoxical. *

The narrator wasn't bad.
