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.

Fat, lazy slob who just had Luck!
In This audiobook - except the first half hour - you unfortunately won`t find any "Tough Sh-t" at all. It is mainly about the fat, lazy slobs doing good in the film business after his success film "clerks".
This is no self-(or other people-)help-book at all.
Doesn t mean it won t please you cuz the fat m.f. is really funny sometimes and talkin some real sh-t. But I personally was expecting s.th. completely different.
The title is misleading. Still... compliment for the first half hour of his literary "work".
