IF HE WRITES YOUR NAME DOWN, IT'S A DEATH SENTENCE . . . Los Angeles, December 4th - exactly three weeks until Christmas day. Angela Wood, a master in the art of pickpocket, has just finished for the day - six hundred and eighty-seven dollars - not bad for less than fifteen minutes work. As she celebrates her profitable day with a cocktail, one of the patrons in the lounge she's in catches her attention by being rude to an old man. Angela decides to teach him a lesson, and steals the man's expensive-looking leather bag. Inside is no money ... no laptop computer ... nothing of any value ... at least not to Angela. Just a black, leather-bound book, surprisingly heavy. Curiosity takes over and in the comfort of her apartment, Angela quickly leafs through the pages. That is when the worst nightmare of her life begins. This is no ordinary book. Read it at your own peril.

This is more than just an audiobook. It's an attitude. It's a mentality. It's a lifestyle. The F*It List is my journey, my life, my lessons, my successes, and my many failures...in my own words. This is a lifestyle as much as it is an actual list of shit to get done. It is an attitude that bleeds into every aspect of your life. It constantly challenges you to question the norms of society and push the limits of the status quo. Specifically, your status quo. Most importantly, The F*It List forces action. It promotes energy and gives life. It allows you to stand up for what you believe but also helps give perspective on external situations and opinions outside of your control. It's not always comfortable, and in many instances, it is downright scary. Yet, instead of searching for the meaning of life, you will be authentically living it. Too often we put limits on ourselves, creating boundaries around what we believe we are capable of achieving. We immerse ourselves in a fixed mindset and make every excuse along the way. "I'm too old, I'm too young, I'm too tired, I'm too shy, I'm too weak, I'm not smart enough, I'm not pretty enough, I'm not rich enough, I'm not a good enough athlete..." Bullshit! If there is one truth that I have learned in life, it's that you get out what you put in. The question then becomes, "Are you willing to put in the work to challenge yourself to live your authentic life? Are you willing to say f--k the result while completely embracing everything the process has to offer? It's not always that easy to say f--k it.... The F*It List is a collection of real-life stories compiled over the last 40 years, all about the process. Every story is complimented with a "Human Crash Test Dummy Life Lesson" drawn from each invaluable experience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Byrnes.
