I agree with other reviews in that this book will probably only appeal to people who already like Kevin Smith.  It's a little haphazard for those who don't know his movies.  However, if you like his work, you'll most likely enjoy the essays here.  I did!  It has me thinking about going to see him speak live, so it must've done something right!  The essays can feel a bit dated - references to a young Britney Spears or to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's romance (and there are essays that are just *admittedly* love letters about his man-crush on Affleck).  Mostly I enjoyed getting to read about Kevin Smith himself - some of the funniest essays are about his wife's self-portrait, his history with comic books and Jersey, or his issues with lap dances.  I think my personal favorite was his depiction of the seedy underworld of San Diego Comic Con.
