Will Smith’s Biographer Talks The Slap: “Everyone Is F***ed Up”

How can we learn what to give a f*** about, and what not to give our energy to?

Joining Sarah Grynberg for the second time is New York Times best-selling author Mark Manson, whose iconic orange book, THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK!, is now being made into a feature film.

In this introspective conversation, Sarah and Mark discuss his most controversial collaborator, Will Smith, and the impact of last year’s #SlapGate, which saw Smith open-handedly hitting comedian Chris Rock at last year’s Academy Awards in front of an audience of 15 million people.

Following on, Sarah picks Marks brain about the treacherous waters of change, our need to take responsibility for our own journy – and how success, fame and material items won’t bring us true happiness.

If you want to find out why our life can jump from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, and how to move through the pain you may experience within it, let this invigorating chat help you understand: our emotional successes in life come from embracing the challenges we are given – making our lives richer and fuller for the taking.
