Life is full of choices. Right now, yours is whether or not to buy the autobiography of a mid-grade, kind of hammy actor.
Am I supposed to know this guy? you think to yourself.
No, and that's exactly the point. The truth is that though you might not have a clue who I am, there are countless working stiffs like me out there, grinding away every day at the wheel of fortune.
If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor is my first book, and I invite you to ride with me through the choppy waters of blue collar Hollywood.
Okay, so buy the damned book already!

There is a wealth of insider information on how Hollywood works and the inside story on what it takes to be a successful actor.
Bruce Campbell, of course.
The tender story of how a chin conquered Hollywood and won our hearts
This book is funny, informative and sometimes downright dangerous to listen to when driving home from work as you can laugh so hard you might fall out of your seat - thank goodness for seat belts.
I've enjoyed Bruce's work in front of the camera since I first saw him in the Evil Dead series. It wasn't until I listened to this book that I found out that he was an integral part of many other favorite movies and TV shows in a behind the camera capacity.
Thanks to Bruce's dramatic reading and witty prose, this is one of the all time best listens I've ever gotten from audible.com.
I hope audible gets more of Bruce's books in stock soon.
I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this book as I did.
This was a very hysterical book. Bruce explains his family background and complete history of the film business. I never saw Evil Dead, but now it's on my Netflix list. He also explains everything you ever wanted to know about tv & movie business. Fair warning though there is no mention of his Burn Notice days, as it was only in season 4.
Bruce Campbell rules
The whole story of evil dead is pretty fantastic and hearing about them all growing up together was fantastic.
He brings a certain ineffable charm to every line, you hear one word and you know it's really Bruce.
I laughed out loud many times.
I love Bruce Campbell.
Absolutely. It offers an incredible and hilarious look into Bruce Cambell's life, and is enjoyable, even if you don't know him.
There are not many other books that I have read or listened to that are similar. ICCK is its own beast.
All are wonderful, Irvin Shapiro and the Acid-Dropping Fan being standouts.
There was many a moment when I physically laughed out loud at his well-told anecdotes.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who would be interested in the crazy world of Hollywood.
If you ever wondered, now it's all explained. Best results with Bruce Campbell fans. Groovy
Lit. major, painter, and aspiring writer. I enjoy reading fiction and often disturbing novels, however, The Hobbit is my favorite book.
I loved this book. Bruce (we're on a first name basis) has a perfect voice for narration. I could (and did) listen to him talk for hours. The book made me realize just how human actors actually are. His stories are funny and his observations of society are hilarious. I enjoyed every minute of this book.
This provided many laughs and smiles to two people stuck in a dark room due to a chronic allergy to light. We couldn't ask for a better distraction and thank Bruce Campbell for his candid retelling of his misadventures.
I would have either given Mr. Campbell a Red Bull, a Snickers bar, or shook him awake.
It's Bruce Campbell...
Mr. Campbell sound bored and it is obvious he is reading from a script. I thought that since it was his own story, he would be more animated, but no.
Sadly, the best I could say is "Maybe". And I consider myself a Bruce Campbell fan. Even met him very briefly at a convention once.
This was disappointing. If you want something similar that is NOT a disappointment, check out Adam Carolla's "In 50 Years We'll All Be Chicks". In spite of my panning this audio book, I still consider myself a Bruce Campbell fan. Sorry Mr. Campbell.
This book is a fantastic trip in to the life of the great b-movie actor Bruce Campbell. You don't have to be a fan to read this (but I bet you will be after reading it!!!) It's narrated by the Main Man himself and he does a fantastic job at this. If you want a good laugh, do yourself a favour and read/listen to this! You won't regret spending time with it/him.
Bruce's recounting of his initial independent film endeavors in Michigan and his behind the scenes description of the blue collar side of Hollywood make a great book. I listened to it twice and my aspiring film maker brother loved it too. Buy this book.
"Very Funny Book"
I had been told this was worth a read so was very happy to see it on audible. I wasn’t disappointed. I am a fan of Bruce Campbell and I guess that helps but I didn’t quite expect it to be as funny as it was.
Well worth checking out for anyone that likes a laugh, enjoys films and wondered what it is like to be an actor in B movies.
Full of information, that any fan of Bruce Campbell, will want to know!
Bruce talking about shooting on 8mm.
Well I didn't listen to it in the toilet.
A must for fans of Bruce Campbell!
