Publisher's Summary

Stephen "Steve-O" Glover—social media icon, comedy-touring stalwart, and star of Jackass—delivers a hilarious and practical guide to recovery, relationships, career, and how to keep thriving long after you should be dead.

Steve-O is best known for his wildly dangerous, foolish, painful, embarrassing, and sometimes death-defying stunts. At age 48, however, he faces his greatest challenge yet: getting older. 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 already lived way more than a lifetime’s worth of extreme experiences. 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 stand-up career—all after a couple of decades of dubious behavior—Steve-O is proof that anyone can find meaning and fulfillment in life, no matter what path they choose. Packed with self-deprecating wit and gruelingly earned wisdom, A Hard Kick in the Nuts will reverberate with listeners 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Gave me a great laugh the start. Hook line sinker loved the rest

A very different take on self help.
‘…… if you are coming to SteveO for help than your life must be pretty fucked!’
Well yes, but it was also a damn good listen

Great book

steve-o... an absolute icon of the 2000s and early 90s. His story is so full of honesty and realism. A real wake-up call for those who drift by.

A man we thought would be dead

Great look from a perspective few have, solid advice for younger nut jobs.
Steve-o is genuinely humbling to listen to, Im old enough to have seen his earliest stuff, and what he's done in life now and his honest yet brash recount of the how's and why's is riddled with gems for people who might find other 'self-help' books to clinical or judgemental.
if you've followed him or don't know him since Jackass and his early stunts, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
