Overview

Kevin Smith is full of sh*t, and in this Deluxe eBook he introduces each chapter with a sh*tastic video—that’s over 25 minutes of bonus sh*t talking!That Kevin Smith? The guy who did Clerks a million years ago? Didn’t they bounce his fat ass off a plane once? What could you possibly learn from the director of Cop Out? How about this: he changed film making forever when he was twenty-three, and since then, he’s done whatever the hell he wants. He makes movies, writes comics, owns a store, and now he’s built a podcasting empire with his friends and family, including a wife who’s way out of his league. So here’s some tough sh*t: Kevin Smith has cracked the code.  Or, he’s just cracked.Tough Sh*t is the dirty business that Kevin has been digesting for 41 years and now, he’s ready to put it in your hands. Smear this sh*t all over yourself, because this is your blueprint (or brownprint) for success. Kev takes you through some big moments in his life to help you live your days in as Gretzky a fashion as you can: going where the puck is gonna be. Read all about how a zero like Smith managed to make ten movies with no discernible talent, and how when he had everything he thought he’d ever want, he decided to blow up his own career. Along the way, Kev shares stories about folks who inspired him (like George Carlin), folks who befuddled him (like Bruce Willis), and folks who let him jerk off onto their legs (like his beloved wife, Jen).So make this your daily reader. Hell, read it on the toilet if you want. Just make sure you grab the bowl and push, because you’re about to take one Tough Sh*t.

Like Kevin Smith, I'm a comic book collecting nerd. I've been a nerd / geek all my life and have had people treat me poorly because of it. That's why I love this book. It's great to see a fat, lazy slob like Kevin make it big. Like many nerds, I couldn't get a date in high school and didn't exactly attract the women in college. I'm not a great catch. But Kevin is a normal guy like me. Except he's done very well for himself. I especially love the parts where he riffs on good-looking Hollywood types like Bruce Willis. If you like Kevin Smith, you'll love this book. It's one of very few funny memoirs written by nerds-done-good-for-themselves. This is a small, but really entertaining genre in itself. I also loved "In Stitches" by Dr. Anthony Youn. He's a comic-collecting, skinny, Asian nerd who became a plastic surgeon and describes how he found himself and the secret to getting a good woman. I LOVED this one. Absolutely hilarious and touching. I also recommend any of Rob Sheffield's books if you are a music buff. He's a geek, too. In the end, kudos to Kevin Smith for giving nerds like me someone to root for!

For any fan of Kevin Smith and/or his body of work this one is a no-brainer. Devout followers will get a few tidbits to keep them going while those new to the Court of King Kevin will be treated to the unfiltered, unbridled passion that made the CLERKS guy so (in)famous. The Enhanced Version is absolutely worth the extra $$ as each chapter begins with a Video Into by the man himself. If you have yet to read a Kevin Smith book, this is the one to start with. ENJOY!

After the intense sympathetic suffering that is required to follow Katniss through the first two Hunger Games books, this book of biographical essays, by my favorite living American humorist, was the perfect antidote. Kevin Smith's wit is fatal, not in the sense of being lethal, although sometimes it is scathing to its subjects, but in the etymological sense of accepting fate. He finds humor in every milestone of his life, whether it is a moment he is celebrating or an onerous one, such as the Southwest Airlines incident. You have to love him for always going where his wit takes him, even into the self-deprecating, and shying away from none of it. The best book I've read this year.

This is yet another fantastic book by Kevin Smith, the lovable and personable director/writer. If you dig his movies, you'll dig this book!   Smith is beginning to reach the status of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. in that he can make you laugh and cry in the same sentence. Always a pleasure to read a great mind bare their soul, Just buy it, you won't regret it!

As an avid fan of Smiths work, this book really gave me somewhat of an inside view of what exactly goes on in his dome. His advice really struck a chord with me, mainly to go out and do it. What ever it is, just go and make your dreams come true.

He's so smart and funny. He makes you wish you could hang out with him even more than you already do. And pay attention, kids, there's some good advice in here about life and sh*t.

I'm a huge Kevin Smith fan to begin with. I listen to his podcasts, I've watched all his movies many times, and I go and see him every time he is in town. I'll start by saying that this book is not for the easily offended. Smith talks about everything from his conception to being deemed "too fat to fly" to his difficulties working with Bruce Willis to the death of his father. The main point of the book is that you can overcome any situation and Kevin Smith is living proof of it. He went from the son of a Post Office worker in the suburbs of New Jersey to the director of some of the best movies of my generation. Excellent book, especially if you enjoy his movies.

Interesting guy, funny stories, very entertaining read. Some may find his language a bit raw but honestly he has many good perspectives on life and an entertaining delivery. So it seems silent Bob speaks, and has much to say.

I bought this book on a whim, and I am so glad that I did! I like Smith's films, but have never really described myself as a fan; this book has changed my perspective on him and his work. More than that, I have found it inspirational and motivating - I read it one night, then woke up the next morning with a new sense of direction. There are some cringe-worthy moments, if you are sensitive to language and gross out topics, but if you can get past that then this book is a gem.
