Summary
Kevin Smith changed filmmaking forever when he was 24 with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, run his own production company, write a best selling graphic novel, and have a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right. Tough Sh*t distills his four decades of breaking all the rules down to direct and brutally honest advice on how to get the most out of life while doing the least.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "For anyone curious about the life and times of film director and uber-geek Kevin Smith-who in his early 20s made a debut splash with the independent film Clerks-this audio version of his memoir breaks down 41 years of rule-breaking and chronicles Smith's work as filmmaker, comic book store owner, and podcaster. Offering up an amazingly fun and loose performance that often boasts the spontaneity of a podcast, Smith takes listeners through his life story with good-natured-if occasionally brutal-honesty. In his narration, Smith occasionally strays from the text, starting during the introduction when he apologizes for background noise and confesses that he is under the influence: "If you gotta read your own book: be stoned." Smith's genuine enthusiasm lends his narration an intimacy that would be difficult for another performer, no matter how talented, to achieve. Listeners are likely to feel that instead of listening to an audiobook, they're engaged in a conversation-albeit one-sided-with Kevin Smith. A Gotham hardcover. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
