Summary
The New York Times bestseller that is profane, honest, and contains totally wise sh*t from one of America's most original voices.

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 filmmaking forever when he was twenty-three, and since then, he's done whatever the hell he wants. He makes movies, writes comics, owns a comic book store, and has built a podcasting empire.

Tough Sh*t is the dirty business that Kevin has been digesting for forty-two years and now he's ready to put it in your hands. Kevin provides you with a blueprint for success, taking 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.
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.
