Publisher's Summary

Life is full of choices. Right now, yours is whether or not to buy the autobiography of a mid-grade, kind of hammy actor.
Am I supposed to know this guy? you think to yourself.
No, and that's exactly the point. The truth is that though you might not have a clue who I am, there are countless working stiffs like me out there, grinding away every day at the wheel of fortune.
If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor is my first book, and I invite you to ride with me through the choppy waters of blue collar Hollywood.
Okay, so buy the damned book already!

One Of The Most Enjoyable Books I Have Ever Heard

Would you listen to If Chins Could Kill again? Why?

Yes<br/>There is a wealth of insider information on how Hollywood works and the inside story on what it takes to be a successful actor.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bruce Campbell, of course.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The tender story of how a chin conquered Hollywood and won our hearts

Any additional comments?

This book is funny, informative and sometimes downright dangerous to listen to when driving home from work as you can laugh so hard you might fall out of your seat - thank goodness for seat belts.<br/><br/>I've enjoyed Bruce's work in front of the camera since I first saw him in the Evil Dead series. It wasn't until I listened to this book that I found out that he was an integral part of many other favorite movies and TV shows in a behind the camera capacity. <br/><br/>Thanks to Bruce's dramatic reading and witty prose, this is one of the all time best listens I've ever gotten from audible.com.<br/><br/>I hope audible gets more of Bruce's books in stock soon.<br/><br/>I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this book as I did.<br/><br/>Cheers.

Chin-tacular

I loved this book. Bruce (we're on a first name basis) has a perfect voice for narration. I could (and did) listen to him talk for hours. The book made me realize just how human actors actually are. His stories are funny and his observations of society are hilarious. I enjoyed every minute of this book.

Groovy: the 2010 edition

The inimitable Bruce Campbell, one of the most distinctive voices (and chins) in show business, recounts his life story with charm and humour. From growing up with legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi to working with the Coen brothers and cross-dressing on the NZ set of Hercules, Campbell's story has warmth and remains down to earth throughout. A heartily recommended listen from the star of the Evil Dead movies and a must for fans. Even for those who have read the book, the lengthy addendum recounting events on his book tour to promote the original version of this story makes it a worthwhile addition to every Deadite's collection.

Very Funny Book

Any additional comments?

I had been told this was worth a read so was very happy to see it on audible. I wasn’t disappointed. I am a fan of Bruce Campbell and I guess that helps but I didn’t quite expect it to be as funny as it was. <br/>Well worth checking out for anyone that likes a laugh, enjoys films and wondered what it is like to be an actor in B movies. <br/>

It's just an amazing book with brilliant narration. Bruce Campbell needs to update this again for his more recent triumphs
