Why Jason Chose This Book:
Raw as Hell and loving every second of it. Bren Smith delivers a sermon on how retrospective can sooth, align and make sense of a life lived as voraciously as, albeit questionably, possible. Tracing a line of displacement and reckless abandon from the earliest stages of his life to how he finally found not just his own true course but one that could save us all.
