Publisher's Summary

I wanted to write another book, but I had already yammered on about myself in two previous autobiographies, so it was time to mix things up.

The Cool Side of My Pillow is a collection of essays. Don’t let that fancy word fool you. I’m not trying to get highbrow or rant myself blue, but there are experiences and observations outside of the entertainment industry that I feel are worth sharing.

What’s it about? Mostly, things that matter to me, like putting in the effort, being honest, and not treating the environment like it’s the enemy. Is it self-help? I hope not, but you will find musings about fame, mysterious carvings, UFOs, and my general disdain of loud noises. Is it political? If it is, I’ll refund your money. There are no conspiracy theories in The Cool Side of My Pillow, just snarky humor and a sincere desire for us all to find peace on Earth.

I hope you like this book. It’s my first effort at “self-publishing”, so there won’t be any national book tour, marketing blitz, or glowing reviews to get your attention – just me throwing it out to the “Inter-webs” and hoping you’ll find it.

Regards,

Bruce Campbell

Bruce, the King

Everything Bruce Campbell does is solid gold. I could listen to him talk about BS all day. He’s a true American treasure.

Heart Broken

Unfortunately what I thought was going to be a wonderful fun interesting book about one of my favorite actors was nothing more than a book about politics and Bruce's take on it. The fact that we disagree wasn't the issue it was the fact that a lot of his points were false. I purchased this book in the hopes of an escape from all the political crap , but what I got was another disconnected movie star who thinks he knows what real head work everyday people think or the fact that for some reason he thinks we care about what some rich Hollywood snob thinks. Not only was I disappointed in the fact that I wasted my money, but also disappointed in the person. If you enjoy movie stars talking about politics you will love it. If you like books about your favorite movie star and how he got where he is keep looking.

Always a joy

I have loved all of Bruce's books and this one is no exception. This book, however, is more personal. He speaks of topics that wouldn't really fit into his biographies or Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way. This book is his thoughts on a vast number of topics from COVID19 to forestry. I hope that he keeps writing.

Groovy

This is just two plus hours of Bruce Campbell rambling on about random things. I love it!! My only complaint is that it's too short. Hail to the king, baby!

Hail to the Chins that could kill!

This is a great book-let. A fitting denouement to the previous two Bruce Campbell books.

DO NOT TAKE TO HEART TO Heart Broken / Anonymous' 2-25-21 moronic review. There is NOTHING political in Bruce's books. He DESPISES politics. IN fact, Chapter 14, my favorite chapter, is "Everything I always wanted to say about politics"...crickets for 30 seconds.

Whether Bruce is a liberal or a conservative doesn't matter, and he DOESN'T want it to matter, and that's the beauty. If Hornywood would adopt Bruce Campbell's political stance, the world would be a far better place (and we should ALL follow the example).

Bruce Campbell, whatever his deeply held political beliefs are, is a fine and honorable American Citizen. He doesn't regale with this opinion about immigration or abortion or deficit spending. He is the preeminent B-Movie actor and that is his stock and trade, God bless him.

He is awesome, and even if he is a bleeding heart liberal, I would be honored to have a beer and talk about trees with him.

Onya Bruce!

Too short!

I loved this book--Campbell's delivery was on point, and the stories were entertaining. However, the title is a bit of a misnomer. Most of the essays in the books are more reflections or stories than actual essays, but they were enjoyable just the same. The one exception is Campbell's piece on trees, of which parts were essay-ish. I enjoyed them all the same. My only complaint is that it is too short... I wanted so much more than was provided here, and I hope that he will do another installment.

Excellent views and stories

His biking out in the wilderness story is one of those could have seriously killed you events but after the fact is funny.

Love his practical down to earth views.

First book of his I have done. So while I like him as an actor. Burn Notice and the obvious Evil Dead. I am now liking him more as a person!

I didn't dislike him, I just didn't know him. This makes me feel like I know him more on a personal level. He would be someone I would love to sit and talk to or just quietly enjoy nature.

Just plain good

Got a road trip coming up. Stuck in traffic or finishing a project at home. Listen to these wonderful essays in the background for a nice time. Thank you Bruce. I really enjoyed spending the afternoon with you.

Fun and inspiring

It’s always a calm during a storm whenever Bruce Campbell releases his work. It’s invigorating, to put it, he’s “the peanut butter and jelly sandwich”, that we all can enjoy, anytime.

It's the Chin for the Win!

I've always enjoyed Bruce Campbell and this collection of essays just makes him even more likeable. Narrated by the legend himself, it gives you the feeling that he is having a conversation with you. Must listen for any Bruce fan.

All too brief, but throughly engaging

This essay collection is worth the listen for any Bruce Campbell fan. Doesn't feel too short in terms of cost, but simply in how it leaves you wanting more, and I certainly hope that we get more from Mr Campbell in the future.

More tales from the chin

Maybe I'm being stupid but I didn't exactly know what to expect. If you liked if chins could kill and hail to the chin then it's more of the same, which is great. Once again read by the man himself, plenty of laughs from the sarcastic master.

Thank you Mr Campbell, write another!
