This book made me laugh and cry (sometimes at the same time). Johnston was humorous insightful and moving. I thought it the book was going to be another tell all Hollywood book but it was so much more than that. The book details Johnston's struggles to get out of addiction and for self acceptance. She does this with great wit and humor. The book is relatable and has life lessons for everyone. I hope Ms Johnston writes more!
Great listen. Highly recommend. Raw and real. Entertaining and funny. Apparently audible wants all the words. Four words remaining now.
Kristen Johnston has a career as an audiobook narrator, if she wants it. Her narration of her own story was just spot on. The story itself was a terrifying tale of how addiction can sneak up and bite you in the most unexpected ways.
amazing read! Kristen shares her story honestly but with such humor, perfect combination! I don't read read many books, but when I heard her interviewed about this I just felt compelled to read. I love Kristen Johnson and just new her audible version would be great. I could relate to her story and listen with a great deal of chuckles asking the way! highly recommend.
I wanted to listen to a funny, interesting, emotional biographic take and that's exactly what I got. I wish it had been a little longer and had delved more into the after-effects of becoming sober, but overall this was a great book with an outstanding performance.
This was a good story but there was very little time spent on how she got sober and stays that way. I felt like the book was cut short in missing those details. Performance was good and so was the story.
Have always loved books and I find that as I have gotten older I find this way more enjoyable then listening to the radio.
this is a fantastic book I would tell everyone if you want a fabulous read this is for u
the Way she broke down the different types of addiction and how people who suffer from addiction are creative and brilliant but by the same token the always means there the sneekiest people around.
when she had her hair washed and how humbling it was to ask for help
Guts is a perfect title however a secound one would be, Can u see me
This is so well done, and added to that Kristen reading the story lets you have an insight into the sheer dept and the crazyness you can have as an addict. This is a book to learn from and to grow from and even better enjoy.

Guts is funny and brutally honest through the eyes of Kristen Johnston. I enjoy her perspective on everything going on and the comedic way she was able to describe some of the most horrible situations.
The bottom line is tell the truth. Be honest with yourself but lets face it, that's hard to do and she makes this clear.
I am also thrilled the author read her book. She has a lot of energy in the way she reads and to me it comes off exactly how she would be thinking it in her head which brings so much life into it.
