Audiobooks are the perfect activity for any sort of holiday travel, and luckily, Audible has some suggestions for your upcoming trip. The world’s largest seller of audiobooks just announced the books most-listened to over the past year. According to the data they provided to Bustle, The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck audiobook (written by Mark Manson and narrated by Roger Wayne) was the most listened-to title of the year, and honestly, that sums up 2017 pretty nicely.
Mark Manson’s book, released in 2016, can only be described as the anti-self help book. Manson preaches the art of caring less — a hard pill to swallow for those of us who grew up in the age of The Secret and were taught to believe in the power of positive thinking. But despite the title, The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck isn’t as cynical as it sounds. Rather, Manson, with his signature dose of candor and humor, teaches the power of learning and understanding your limitations and working through them and with them to achieve your goals. The whole thing is backed by scientific research, so it’s not just some guy’s crazy ramblings about how you should live your life.
Audible also provided Bustle with a list of their top 10 most-listened to audiobooks of the year, and the second place finisher will hardly surprise anyone: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, narrated by Jim Dale. See the full list of most-listened to audiobooks below:
