Jennie Lawson is an amazing writer of the humorous strange things of her life. I read the print book at had to put it down at times because I was laughing so hard. Content-wise, this book is a winner~
Authors reading their own material can find it tricky. Lawson is not a polished speaker - I attended a live reading and book-signing, and she both spoke too quickly and swallowed her words - all the marks of someone who could use a bit of training and be fabulous.
The book suffers the same problems. I didn't find her accent an issue at all, but the speed of her speech, the slides of words means that she sometimes just stomps past her punchlines.
And one enormously distracting performance issue is the singing of the chapter titles - they are WAY TOO LOUD (hey Audible, I CAN HEAR HER!), and therefore even more annoying. Next time, just say the title normally.
