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.

I'm a big fan of Kevin Smith. I don't love all his movies but his out look on life is truly amazing and inspirational. Anyone who might be having doubts about their own life and if they are doing things right should definitely check this book out. At the time of writing this review I'll be on my third time listening to this book and I don't plan on stopping. Every time I listen I get a little more inspired to be the best person I can be.
His candid stories about Bruce Willis, Southwest Air,
George Carlin and his wife are so darn funny!!
Very entertaining stories! Loved the audio book because it's hilarious hearing Kevin tell his own stories. You also get bonus snippets in between chapters! Very funny!
Okay so he tells you straight out that he has had a 'smoke' before starting. It does, I think add to his story as that is his life. I am a fan of the man and my opinion has not changed. It was good to hear all the funny back stories and how he struggled with other situations. His weight being a strong story point.
Good luck to him and his family. You have to admire the heck out of his wife.
I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.
Not so much..... It falls short in a lot of ways. I enjoyed it but .... Lacks something
Can't think of anything
Worth a listen
I've always loved Kevin Smiths work, from Mall rats to Chasing Amy and his newest venture Comic Book Men. He's an awesome and talented guy that I look up too, in a wierd way. I listened to it twice in a few days and will probably buy the actual paper back. I highly recommend it.
