To say that Mr. Kevin Smith has himself a way with words isn't doing him justice. You can tell this is a man who loves writing, and combing the truly clever with the sorta crude. He's a man who had to take control and pave his own way. He's rightfully genuinely happy with what he's accomplished, and has a lot of fun telling the story. Despite all this talent, Mr. Kevin Smith is still completely grounded and humble, and excited with sharing his experience and wisdom. The book is an always-interesting reflection on his life and career.
Disguised as a semi-self-help book, Kevin writes in his usual forthright, wildly profane and hilarious style about how a fat kid from the suburbs of central Jersey became ... well, Kevin Smith. Some of it was luck, mainly his collaboration with Harvey Weinstein, who bought "Clerks" and bankrolled many of Kevin's future films, but most of it was Kevin's sheer determination to do things his way. For example, Weinstein offered Kevin $3 million to make "Chasing Amy"--but only if David Schwimmer, Drew Barrymore and Jon Stewart played the leads. Kevin's response? "Give me $200,000 and let me have Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams and Jason Lee. If you like it, it's yours, if you don't let me take it to another distributor." Kevin got his way, and "Chasing Amy" became a hit.Read more ›
