In the first chapter, Smith writes: "It's advice; don't fight it. Either make something of the advice or simply discard it, but don't try to fight it."Tough Shit is full of little nuggets of wisdom and of personal experiences. Taking the line above into consideration, some of the book I found very insightful, helpful, and will take with me in how I act/think in the future. The other parts, well I'll just discard them.Even those discarded parts are fun and entertaining to read in a familiar style if you are a fan of Smith's other endeavors, like myself. Who am I kidding. If you are a fan of Smith's, you probably have already read this.Tough Shit is an entertaining book by an entertaining author. I found it insightful and have gleaned a lot from it in a time when I need some motivation.
