    I'm the One That I Want, based on her show of the same name, is filled with dead-on insights about the experience of being a woman with attitude, of flowing with the highs and lows of life, and of creating one's own identity and acceptance. It is every bit as hilarious, shocking, and irreverent as she is.

    Overall

    This was my first audible book. I chose it because I wanted something funny, and found that not only was it hilarious, it was also touching, sad, inspiring and a lot more things at the same time. What makes it even better is that the comedian reads her own story, and all the impressions of her parents and relatives are absolutely perfect-- I found myself doubled over during the first ten minutes-- I literally COULD NOT STAND UP, I was laughing so hard. I found myself greedily listening to this way beyond the time I alotted myself for a half hour of daily exercise. The story progresses through the star's childhood, how she became a comedian, how she became famous, etc. It also describes her eating disorder, problems with drugs, men, etc. All told with flashes of humor that are so brilliant-- she's a genius and should do more of these. The book came to an end way too soon-- wish it was unabridged instead of abridged.
