  • Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself

    Story
    (53)

    Picking up where his best-selling memoir left off, having been saved by emergency surgery after nearly dying on a mountaintop in Chile, Alda finds himself not only glad to be alive but searching for a way to squeeze the most juice out of his new life. Looking for a sense of meaning that would make this extra time count, he listens in on things he's heard himself saying in private and in public at critical points in his life.

    "Laugh out loud"
    Overall

    Hilarious storytelling and inspiring speeches.
    Leave it to Alan Alda.

  • Guts: The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster

    Story
    (429)

    The two-time Emmy Award-winning actress has written her first book, a surprisingly raw and triumphant memoir that is outrageous, moving, sweet, tragic, and heartbreakingly honest. Guts is a true triumph - a memoir that manages to be as frank and revealing as Augusten Burroughs, yet as hilarious and witty as David Sedaris.

    John Campbell says: "Whiskey and cigarettes have never sounded so good."

    What made the experience of listening to Guts the most enjoyable?

    Kristen blows the doors off storytelling in this one woman tour-de-force audiobook.
    I laughed out loud for at least 1/4 of it, and the other 3/4, I was blissfully tuned in.
    She's an absolute creative inspiration of self-deprecation, cutting wit, and insight into the inner workings of life. Kristen nailed this one.

    9.9 from the East German judge (cause they never give 10's)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Guts?

    Too many to remember


    Have you listened to any of Kristen Johnston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no
