Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, April 2014 - I’m not the type of person who typically reads celebrity biographies. To be honest, I’ve only read these types of books out of need on long flights. I willingly picked up Judy Greer’s I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star because I happen to love the eclectic mix of television shows and movies in which she’s been. Her book is funny, interesting, and honest. She speaks of her childhood in Michigan, her college years in Chicago, and her time in L.A. The best part? It’s like listening to your best friend talk about her day. –Laura, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

Like Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and other (best-selling) co-stars, Judy Greer is taking pen to paper and in her honest, self-deprecating, and hilariously relatable way reminding us why she's not America's sweetheart but America's best friend.

You know Judy Greer, right? Wait, what was she in again? The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses, The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, if you're like most women in America, you feel like she's already your friend. Thankfully, Greer has finally written a book of essays about all the moments, topics, observations, and confessions that you would hope to hear from your best friend. How a midnight shopping trip to CVS can cure all. What it's like to have stepchildren. And how she really feels about her mother. Yes, it's all in there. But Judy Greer isn't just a regular friend - she's a celebrity friend. Want to know which celebs she's peed next to? Or what the Oscars were actually like? Or which hot actor gave her father a Harley Davidson? Don't worry - that's included, too. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, you'll love her because she makes us genuinely feel like she's one of us. Because even though she sometimes has a stylist and a make-up artist, she still wears (and hates!) Spanx. Because she starts her book like this: "This is who I am. This is what I think about things. This is stuff that happened to me, that could have just as easily have happened to you. I'm not that special, and we're probably not that different. I think I am really lucky to be where I am in life, but I've never really lost that feeling that I don't fit in, and if you have, will you please email me and tell me how you did it? I'm serious."

    "Yay!!! Another Audible Favorite!"

    This book was on par with my absolute, hands down favorite "BossyPants". Judy Greer's stories are touching, funny, interesting and well narrated. As another small town Michigan girl, her early essays on growing up outside Detroit during the "John Hughes" era made me feel like we were besties exchanging memories. Love this book!!!

    Story
    "Funniest book about Show Biz in A Long Time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Bcause it's very funny.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The blind date with the man who would become her husband. Anyone who's been on a blind date can relate. She forgot what he looked like, after two hours of talking to him over dinner.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Getting to know her step children and her husband's ex.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Ashton Kutcher bought Judy's dad a serious Harley, just cause Ashton's a good guy.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd be surprised if she doesn't become a major comedy star,after this book. She's really funny and you can't help but wish her the best.

    "Fun"
    What did you love best about I Don't Know What You Know Me From?

    There is something endearing about Judy Greer that makes her almost instantly likable. There is nothing mind blowing about the book as far as content, except to say that it made me like her more. Listening to this book is like making a new friend: you get to hear all the past stories, thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes, and gaffes. it's a one sided relationship at this point, but you know, she IS an actress (hee, hee). Very enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "Needed More Stories!"
    What disappointed you about I Don't Know What You Know Me From?

    I think it was just too general - "I have a hard time with this, I really like that" … but lacking any specific details or stories to capture the listener's attention. (Aside from the motorcycle story, which was semi-interesting, but a little too gushy.) The entire chapter of reading emails about what a great friend she is was annoying. (Again, without specific stories or examples … just, "wow! you're really awesome!")


    Would you ever listen to anything by Judy Greer again?

    Probably not. I really enjoy Judy Greer as an actress, and because of the wide variety of characters she's played and people she's worked with, I was hoping to hear a collection of stories about her experiences. (Especially from Arrested Development! I would think that job alone would be full of interesting/funny tales!) Happily, she seems to have led a pretty charmed life - which is great - but makes for a bit of a tiresome read. Makes me really appreciate how difficult it is to be an engaging writer/storyteller. Not everyone can do it.

    "Boring"
    Any additional comments?

    I expected this book to be more of a look into Hollywood and the author's time there. It really wasnt about much of anything. There is no behind the scenes insight, no talk of her various shows or roles. Judy's story is one you would want for your friends but not that interesting as a book. No gossip, no scandal, just small town girl from a nice family goes to college and then to Hollywood and a husband.

    Story
    "Very entertaining, light hearted listening"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Don't Know What You Know Me From to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Um....Judy? It was like I was sitting across from her at a cafe table or a park bench and she is telling snippets of her life experiences.


    What does Judy Greer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You really get involved with her expressions and its always better to hear it from the person herself recounting the stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not exactly, but close to it. Stories very entertaining but it wasn't one long connected story so you could take breaks after chapters completed.


    Any additional comments?

    I've always been a fan of Judy Greer mostly without knowing it for years. I didn't even know her NAME until this audiobook came out and I said to myself, "Oh right!!! Her. So thats her name!"

    I love reading. For a long time, I snubbed audio books like so many others. How wrong and misguided I was.

    Story
    "Enjoyable essays from the life of an actress"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    She tends to complain more than necessary especially when you consider her occupation.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. It may be more entertaining and less whiny as a movie

    Story
    "A refreshing confession that is a must-hear!"
    What did you love best about I Don't Know What You Know Me From?

    I loved the fact that Judy didn't sugar coat anything. She told her stories as raw and hilarious as they were and really gave her readers/listeners a chance to get to know her on a more personal level.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Don't Know What You Know Me From?

    Go ahead and give it a listen!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!! I finished this book in two days because it was so entertaining. I loved that Judy truly did tell her audience what it was like to be a professional actor - and not one that was told what to say, she really gave us a snippet of her real life! It was so refreshing to listen to, and she is a very funny woman who leads a very normal life! I loved every minute of this book.
