Summary Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a hockey jersey, shorts and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look: 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 bestselling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right. As Kevin's Twitter followers and 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, and he discovered that he had a lot to say. This book distills his four decades of breaking all the rules down to direct and brutally honest advice.--From publisher description.
