I did not read the print version, but knowing that Kevin is a free spirit, I would imagine that he put something extra into the audio edition.
The story of how difficult Bruce Willis was to work with on the set of "Cop-Out" was easily my favorite. He describes, in detail, the painful process of getting work out of someone who did not seem to want to perform.
I am a big fan of Kevin Smith and this book just fills in some of the blanks. I love the relationships that he has with those around him.
To hear it in his own voice made it that much more real. I listen to him on podcasts and wouldn't have been able to listen to the story if it was read by someone else.
There were too many to count.
Listen to it, read it, own it.
Kevin did a great job of reading his own book and it was a lot of fun listening to him.
Funny as s--t
Kevin Smith as ord hos story
Shouting whith Willis
Funny and not for the prude
Doctor of misanthropy
What can you say? This is distilled Kevin Smith, and virtually everything he's liable to talk about. The guy is a great story teller and in the process, lets you know more about him than most people are willing to disclose to their friends. Of course, all of this is surrounded by really crude, infantile humor, so if you don't like that, don't go there.
If, as I do, you do like that, best get some astronaut diapers before starting on this one.
Yes I would listen to Tough Sh-t again. Here's why: Kevin Smith (or should I say Mr. PodCast) is a funny guy. Especially when he talks about episodes from his own life. He talks about his early days of film making to his so-so encounter with superstar Bruce Willis when filming Cop Out. And you get to know all about how he met his wife +++ (the X-rated version)
His telling of it !
Funny, articulate, enjoyable
The chapter on George Carlin also made me cry!
The chapter when Kevin met and fell in love with Jennifer
That a brilliant mind is more beneficial to you than where you came from or what you appear to look like.
I just really love the way Kevin's mind works, and I think their's is a fun and very cool life. He's very down to earth for a person that's accomplished what he has, and he seems nice, and that is a great quality in a father, husband, relative, friend or partner. I can't wait until he comes back to the Chicago area so that I can go see him (and hopefully Ralph Garman too) in person.
This was the first audible book I purchased through audible, truth be told it's the first book I've read/listened to in many many years. Reason I decided to sign up for audible was due to Kevin Smith himself narrating this book himself, which added so very much to it (especially with his side stories he threw in that were not in the book).
Every chapter was just as entertaining as the last, cover to cover was my favorite.
Constaint laughs, as well as some very serious points when he is talking about his dad.
Love him or hate him there is no reason everyone shouldn't give this a listen, you will be very entertained for the duration. If you have listened to any of his podcasts you may have heard some of the stories before, however...they are always entertaining even on the 5th or 6th listen.
Crass…but surprisingly insightful. Smith is interesting and inspired. Although, I am not exceptionally familiar with all of Smith's work, I found his personality, frank honesty, and ability to spin a story extremely fun and entertaining.
Entertaining listen. Kevin Smith tells it himself and does so in a different style compared to his podcasts. Making it more entertaining.
When he was recounting his experience with Bruce Willis. He talks about it in podcasts and his Q&As. But this is the hard truth of what it was like to work with him.
If you listen to the podcasts. You'll still be surprised to hear the things he doesn't tell in podcasts. Kevin Smith also imparts his own inspirations upon the reader. Encouraging readers to pursue their dreams. If you're an average Joe schmoe, worth a listen, because Kevin Smith is a regular guy.
