Publisher's Summary

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:

  • Why he has accepted Ferris Bueller as his personal savior, and what the Tenets of Buellerism can teach about hiding in plain sight and lip-syncing in the face of danger
  • Why it's really fun to eat but not so fun to be fat
  • What to do about people who don't like your policies ( for starters, tell them to pucker up and smooch your big ol' butt)
  • What Kevin's idol Wayne Gretzky can teach us about creativity and direction

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.

    "That Kevin Smith"

    All of things you wanted to know and some of the things you may not have wanted to. Very well written and an amazing job of reading by Kevin himself including cute little side notes from time to time. Very funny, very touching at times and always interesting and incitful. Highly recommended.

    "Kevin Smith delivers!"

    Loved this book. Smith reflects on his life choices and how he became successful. This isn't just funny stories, although there's lots of that, it's how to posture yourself for happiness and success. Smiths attitude and way with people have served him his whole life. His story is inspiring and motivating. Props for reading his own book.

    "Most Entertaining Read I've Ever Had"

    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.
