Publisher's Summary

Profane, honest, and totally real advice from comedian and director Kevin Smith - one of America's most original voices....
Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was 24 with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.
As Kevin's millions of Twitter followers and millions of podcast listeners know, he's the first one to admit his flaws and the last one to care about them. In early 2011, he began using his platform to answer big questions from fans - like "What should I do with my life?"- and he discovered that he had a lot to say. Tough Sh-t distills his four decades of breaking all the rules down to direct and brutally honest advice, including:


Why he has accepted Ferris Bueller as his personal savior, and what the Tenets of Buellerism can teach about hiding in plain sight and lip-syncing in the face of danger
Why it's really fun to eat but not so fun to be fat
What to do about people who don't like your policies ( for starters, tell them to pucker up and smooch your big ol' butt)
What Kevin's idol Wayne Gretzky can teach us about creativity and direction
For anyone who's out of a job, out of luck, or just out of sugary snack foods, Tough Sh*t is an unabashedly honest guide to getting the most out of doing the least.

Such a likable slob!

I like Kevin Smith despite myself - - and him. The essence of this guy is a really sweet, funny, and ridiculously smart "artist" as he insists on calling himself and others. The need to slip into 6th grade boy humor and more swear words per square inch then you can believe possible doesn't prevent even a quasi-prude like me from really enjoying the person who lies at the heart of this "artist." If you've seen and liked any of his films like Chasing Amy or Clerks (or my personal favorite: Dogma) then you'll really like this book as well. What makes it more special is that he occasionally goes off script and you get that spontaneous humor that makes him so entertaining. If you like his movies, you'll like this man, and you'll like this book and agree with him: he's an artist.

Bow at the feet of Kevin Smith!

Kevin Smith is one of the funniest people alive. His movies are fantastic, but this tops them all. He says things in such an honest and funny way, you're left feeling that you can't believe you've never seen it like that before. Or, maybe you did, you're just not clever enough to say it like he can. One warning: you might want to strap on some depends. You might pee yourself while listening to this book.
