Milton Keynes Personal and Professional Development Book Club – The subtle art of not giving a f*ck – Mark Manson

Post event update: We had a great discussion about the points made in this book, which we thought would be better titled 'the subtle art of carefully choosing what to give a f*ck about'.

Milton Keynes Personal and Professional Development Book Club
