Tough Shit: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good by Kevin Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm a big fan of Kevin Smith, but admit to not really knowing a whole lot about how he ended up where he did. I saw him on a variety of shows, in movies, and have some friends who go to his shows. This book was a combination of his history, how he got into the business, who influenced him, and some words of wisdom.
In reality, I probably shouldn't even be reviewing this. He makes a big deal about putting his foot down and not wanting any reviews or press for his stuff anymore. Also, this book was written a little while ago. Some of the content doesn't exactly age well. He spends a large portion of the book talking about Harvey Weinstein. This, obviously, isn't the best, but at least Kevin Smith eventually "breaks up" with him, and sees who he truly is.
All in all, this was the perfect type of book for a roadtrip, which is exactly how we listened to it. He reads the book (stoned), so you get the true experience. It was a fun trip (in the book and in "real life"), so well worth the price of admission.
