For years the controversial and crass street-philosopher Dead Zen said it like it was at his website Give Up and Die. Now he’s written a full book of snarky and real advice for teens. He pulls no punches and cuts right to the chase. His anthem is: you are going to die, in the next ten minutes, ten years, or ten decades, so make sure you’re life means something. He answers the age old questions of all teens, including, “Why give a Sh*t?”, “What’s the Point?”, and “Why Can’t I Just Sit in the Basement and Smoke Weed all Day?” Combining humor, philosophy, and practical wisdom, Get Living or Die Trying covers a range of topics and aims to point young people in the right direction in life, the direction of finding a true passion and purpose and dropping all the other bullsh*t!. Not convinced, here’s a sample of the first few pages for free: GetLifeorDieTrying SAMPLE.
