This is a PRE-ORDER for A Hard Kick in the Nuts. Your book includes a SIGNED bookplate and will be available September 27. Steve-O is best known for his wildly dangerous, foolish, painful, embarrassing, and sometimes death-defying stunts. At age 47, however, he faces his greatest challenge yet: getting old. A Hard Kick in the Nuts: What I’ve Learned from a Lifetime of Terrible Decisions is a captivating exploration of life and how to live it by an individual who has packed a lifetime’s worth of extreme experiences into what actually amounts to about half a lifetime. Steve-O grapples with the right balance between maturity and staying true to yourself, not repeating your “greatest hits,” maintaining sobriety and a healthy regimen, avoiding selfishness, and finding the right partner for life. Having built a gargantuan and loyal social media following while establishing a successful standup career—all after a couple of decades of dubious behavior—Steve-O is proof that anyone can make it over the hill and enjoy the ride down the other side. Filled with self-deprecating wit and gruelingly earned wisdom, A Hard Kick in the Nuts will resonate with readers everywhere who have lived a lot (sometimes too much) and are now wondering how to approach the years to come. Or maybe just need some good motivation to get out of bed tomorrow. One of many tips: Be your own harshest critic, then cut yourself a break, and enjoy this book.
