    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 twenty-four 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.

    Pamela says: "Such a likable slob!"
    "Raw, witty, and unexpectedly inciteful!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tough Sh-t to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of this book has at least one major advantage over the print version. It is read by the author! I love that, because no one knows how the written word should be read like the person who wrote them, but he also offers the occaissional aside comment or story that makes the listener feel they're getting something special.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is an auotobiographical book, but trust me Kevin Smith is quite an interesting character.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first read iv'e ever heard Kevin Smith do, but I am a fan of his movies.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I think the idea that sticks with me the most from the book is that so-called indie film is basically dead. I feel a real sense of saddness for that loss, and the fact that artists like him may have no future forum for their ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    Definately not for children, prudes, or those who are uncomfortable with the truth. Mr. Smith tells it like it is, and though you may squirm with the bluntness of his adjectives you will also find yourself laughing out loud.
