When life gives you lemons, make lemon cake-
Great book, great story, good voice , cool guy. Had the feeling to run out and buy "Cop Out" midway through the book for some reason. . . I wish I would have purchased sooner
Love the movies. Also like his politics. This felt like I need validation so I'm going to do a book. I didn't finish listening!
Got a kick out of listening to how working with Bruce Willis in Cop Out went.
Why? So much brilliance. Where is the biting social commentary. Too much weed, bro?
Tough Sh*t by Kevin "Silent Bob" Smith is a hilarious tale of tales in the life of one of this generation's most influential filmmakers. Narrated by Smith himself, the 5 plus hour audiobook of Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good is a pleasure to listen to. In less time than it takes to crawl through a heavy case of the Mondays at work, this audiobook was finished in no time. Which is not necessarily a good thing. It was such a funny insight into Kevin Smith's career, as well as his cum-dispensing personal life, that you are left wanting more. Not unlike the goddess that is his wife, Jennifer Schwalbach (by Smith's own account). I hope to see and look forward to any other written works by one of my favorite directors that may arise in the future. From Clerks to Tough Sh*t and beyond, Kevin Smith has a lot to say and as always it is quite a pleasure to hear what that is. I'd highly recommend this publication, both in print and audiobook formats, to anyone looking to chuckle at and be inspired by a (former) fat man and his many misadventures that helped create the man we know as Kevin Smith today. 5 stars across the board!
This book, especially the audio book, plays and or reads almost like a SModcast episode. I think it is an easier listen/read if you are a fan but given a chance there is something for just about everyone. Read/listen or don't read/listen the choice is yours, just don't expect some inspirational Tony Robbins hand holding. Kevin is inspirational as f@$k if you let him, he just does it with the flare and mouth of a 10th grader!
This hit home for me. Every chapter I found laughter or some kind of life advice that moved me. Having Kevin Smith do the audio added even more to the book. I couldn't get enough of it and finished it within 24hours. This book is truly a piece of art. Thank you Mr. Smith.
