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.

    "Inspirational."

    I love Kevin Smith's work. This book is an inspiration to me, an aspiring artist. His message is basically what keeps me trying to make my mark.

    "BETTER THAN..."

    totally gut busting funny. and far more satisfying than being able to scratch an itch when you're doing a presentation on stage in front of an audience. this is definitely a must-listen-to-it-again (and again) piece of hilarious shit!

    "Why so long"

    Pearls of wisdom; laugh out loud funny; reverence for his friends and family; joy even painful moments; wizard of words; only Carlin can use the English language with more precision...thank you Kevin!

    "Some how very insightful"

    I came to this boon just for a good time but the great Kevin Smith was actually very insightful in his word and execution. The best part of the the book was the last two section but overall the dive into Kevin was a great ride throughout.

    "Love you K. SMITH! You are awesome!"

    Loved it and had hearty laughs all through out. So much relatable and from a nerdy point of view I can only see through my own eyes. Alot to overcome in my own journey I can at least hope in the future I can tell someone I hopefully inspire that during my early 30's in finding myself, Kevin Smiths book was one of many that spoke to my heart. Thank you

    "Foul and crude"

    Foul and crude. Classless man that is a talented writer and filmmaker. If he ever decides to clean it up a bit he will be more enjoyable.

    "I could listen to Kevin Smith rant on for hours!!"

    Anyone who has grown up with Kevin's work knows that anything this man produces is gold. Could not stop listen and before I knew it, it was over! And could continue listen to K Smith for hours on end as his work is entertaining, funny and raw. It may seem crude and vulgar at times but its real and honest and comes from true feelings. Which give a great message pursue your dreams and enjoy what life throws at you. Taking it with a pound of Salt!!
