Profane, honest, and totally real advice from comedian and director Kevin Smith - one of America's most original voices....
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 24 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.
As Kevin's millions of Twitter followers and millions of podcast listeners know, he's the first one to admit his flaws and the last one to care about them. In early 2011, he began using his platform to answer big questions from fans - like "What should I do with my life?"- and he discovered that he had a lot to say. Tough Sh-t distills his four decades of breaking all the rules down to direct and brutally honest advice, including:
For anyone who's out of a job, out of luck, or just out of sugary snack foods, Tough Sh*t is an unabashedly honest guide to getting the most out of doing the least.

this audio book was the single best thing i have ever put in my ear pussy to kill off my shit storm of a day while i work a job i dispise for slave wages i barley get to see any of. sorry for my lack of proper punctuation
It was like Kevin Smith himself sat in my room with me(baked might I add) and told me one long bedtime story based on his life and the tough lawn bombs that come with it. What can I say, I laughed, I cried, and I pondered life. Check this pop culture riddled story out, you won't regret it.
best audio book i have listened too in a long time thanks to the legendary kevin smith.
If you are a fan of Kevin Smith this audio book is a must buy. Great performance from him as always.
when I first listened to this book, I was absolutely in love with it. months later, stress and life has gotten me pretty down. I listened to this book again and it kept me from hitting my absolute low. his words inspire you to realize you're self worth and find what you love and make a career out of it. Kevin Smith is the father I never had. truly an inspiration and a hero.
I've read this multiple times. Always inspires me to do something, create something, and never take you can't do it as an answer. Instead of asking why do something, ask why not.
Honest, uncensored hilarity.
I can't think of any, but if you have listened to any of Smith's Q&A's, you'll know pretty much what to expect from this book. He's honest, he's vulgar, and he tells his story in a way that only he could.
Smith is a dynamic storyteller, and he does a great job reading his own material. I suspect I would have heard a lot of it in his "voice" had I read a hardcopy, but this was just great.
I really enjoyed this selection. It think it offers more to aspiring writers/film makers, but it was still a terrific listen for me. I've been a fan of his for years and years, so I knew what to expect. This might be a little too vulgar for those that aren't familiar with his stuff, though.
