Book Description

30 May 2012
Would you take advice from a fat, balding, lazy slob in a size XXL shirt, shorts and slippers, who has taken Ferris Bueller as his personal saviour? How about from a hugely successful writer, performer, director, producer and bestselling author? Kevin Smith is all these things and more, and he s back, this time answering Life s Big Questions in his lewd, crude and hilariously rude style.

Product Description


"elevating the white-guy-doing-nothing prerogative from a lifestyle choice to a moral principle." --The New York Times

The chapter on Smith s disastrous Cop Out shoot is a fascinating bit of dirt-dishing, as are his musings on Harvey Weinstein and his aborted Green Lantern. --Empire Magazine --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Life and Times of Kevin S 29 Mar 2012
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Since I saw a headline on my RSS feed - "Fat Director kicked off flight" - and clicked on it, then (after reading the brief article surrounded by many ads) going to the Smodcast website, I've been hearing about Kevin Smith's life ever since. For a solid 2 years and change I've had Smodcast and its many, many attendant podcasts playing whenever I've had a long drive with myself or a walk to work or washing up and needing something non-musical. But having listened to the many entertaining stories Kevin has imparted, along with having seen his Q&A specials "Too Fat for Forty" and "Kevin Smith Burn in Hell", I realised after the first chapter of this book that for a person who shares everything, there's very little left to surprise someone who's been following along and listened to every story.

Smith uses his father as an example for the rest of the book - Don Smith was a man who worked 20 years in a job he hated (the US postal service) to provide for his family and then after a too-short retirement, died of heart failure, screaming. The message to Smith was clear - never do a job you hate, never have regrets so when the time comes, you won't go out in as much pain.

From there we get a whirlwind look at Smith's career, the story of "Clerks", and a brief synopsis of every film made since then. The filming of "Cop Out" and his clashes with Bruce Willis are documented, as well as the filming of "Red State" which takes up several chapters. What became known as the "Too Fat to Fly" incident with South West is detailed, and a loving final chapter to his wife Jennifer Schwalbach closes out the book along with a short note from their daughter Harley Quinn Smith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legend 5 Jan 2013
By Jojopug
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've always been a fan of Kevin Smith's work and so was eagerly awaiting this book.

I literally read it in 2 days and loved it! Particularly enjoyed the incite into bruce willis!

All i can say is, i wish i'd had this book when i was younger, it really does inspire you (and of course make you laugh hysterically)

I will definitely be forcing my children to read it when the time is right!

A worthy investment!
