Graft: How to Smash Life

By Tom Skinner


Tom Skinner is a grafter. Born and bred in Romford, he’s spent a lifetime on market stalls and knows exactly what it takes to stay afloat and keep your chin up when the going gets tough.

He’s always had an eye for opportunity and has sold everything from laughing monkeys to luxury mattresses. Like a magician, Tom can make something out of nothing, although he’s seen it all disappear just as quickly, too.

Graft is a window into the world of a professional wheeler-dealer who seizes every day and makes the most of everything it offers.

Inside, Tom shares his story and the hilarious escapades he’s found himself involved in while trying to make a quick buck. He also reveals how you too can make your own luck using the simple mantras he abides by and how to bounce back off the ropes when it feels like you’re down and out.

From fuelling yourself with a big breakfast (preferably down Dino’s café) to the importance of making mistakes and why the early bird always catches the worm, Tom offers an entertaining, motivational read for anyone who wants to do bigger and better things … or just wants a good laugh.

This is how to smash life the Skinner way. BOSH!
