"A rude blast of gleeful provocation." - Rolling Stone

There is about 125 pages dedicated just to telling the story of Jason Mewes' introduction to drugs, and his struggle with addiction. This is both a terrifying story about drugs, and a heart-warming story about friendship. and again, he made me cry. This section of the book alone is enough to justify whatever you spend on it.
Kevin Smith fans, purchase this book with confidence that you'll enjoy it.
Non Kevin Smith fans, it's still worth reading.

I am not finished yet. It is my official "Crap, I didn't bring anything with me into the bathroom to read" book, meaning it lives in the bathroom for just those moments. I can usually crank out a page or two that way. More, if I had a Chinese food earlier that day.
Still, if you are a Smith fan, you may dig it. I am, it's kinda cool. I think I may have read some of it online, as I knew what would happen in some passages. So check it out, you will probably dig it, too.
