Tough Sh*t

Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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 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 s**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 s**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.

I can not wait for the book to come out, I've heard Mr. Smith talk about some of the content and it will be awesome to hear some of these stories and to be able to hear them in the authors voice...that's amazing. I love living in the future, and I've heard the impressions are pretty good too!!

Absolutely brilliant!!

Having long been a fan of Kevin Smith, I have read every book, watched every film, sucked up every bit of television clips, interviews, etc. The man never ceases to amaze me. Not only is he a brilliant man, he's also a sensitive and loving man, this book further proves that. From the stories about family, the hypocrisy of the world in general to hilarious insight into the weird world of entertainment, he nails it. Not one to become "Hollywood", he tells it from our perspective, the "normies". I loved Kevin Smith before, I absolutely adore him now. To read such loving words about his wife, daughter, father, mother, the late great George Carlin and his view on the absurdity that is entertainment and business is completely inspiring and should be considered required reading for any and everyone!

A great guy

This guy is soooo real you just want to sit down and have a beer with him and talk. I haven't read his other two books, but this one was funny and insightful .... Loved it start to finish
