Whether it's a vacation with her dad during which he tells airline staff they're a honeymoon couple in order to get an upgrade, or her elaborate attempts to convince her third-grade classmates that she's starring in a Private Benjamin sequel, Chelsea lets it rip in these relentlessly entertaining essays. Displaying the candor and irresistible turn of phrase that have earned her a recurring stint as a correspondent on The Tonight Show as well as her own E! series, Chelsea Lately, this deliciously skewed collection is a guilty pleasure.

"Chelsea Handler is a terrific comedian and a hilarious writer. (Jay Leno)
"Chelsea Handler writes like Judy Blume, if Judy Blume were into vodka, Ecstasy, and sleeping with midgets and nineteen-year-olds." (Jennifer Weiner, best-selling author of In Her Shoes)
"There's something suspiciously sophisticated about how [Handler's] jokes line up that suggests the moral austerity of a comic not of [Joan] Rivers' bad-girl school: Tina Fey." (New York Times)
There are some good laughs here, no doubt hence the 4 stars....sadly the stories are so disjointed and painfully random that it is a little hard to beleive. And who knew, Chelsea has a really bad habit of ditching people. Surprised she has any friends left!
This book was good for a few laughs, but I was very underwhelmed by the lack of humor. Chelsea Handler is much funnier in person than she is in print. Don't waste your money on this book.
This was the perfect book for a 14 hour drive to Florida a couple of months ago. She has an amazing gift to appeal to both men and women with her humor. When I reached my destination, I listened to it again with the adult women in my family. It is that funny.
If you like Chelsea and her show Chelsea Lately, you'll love her book, and it's especially funny because she is the narrator. I find not only her jokes to be funny, but her delivery is what nails it. It's definitely not for someone who doesn't have an open mind and a liberal sense of humor.
A word of advice for those people, lighten up, stop taking life so seriously, it's only joking around and cutting up, life is too short to be prude like. Laugh, it'll make you feel better.
I too am a fan of the show but got less than an hour into this before I had to give it up. Very not funny.
