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)
I love Chelsea I have listened to this read about 3 times already. I love chelsea she is the best. This book was anothe tale about stories in her life and they all were very funny and paints a clear picture. i ddin't want it to end I wanted to hear more from her. I can't wait to get the next one.
Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
If you Love Chelsea, then you will enjoy this book. I love the fact that Chelsea is reading it. To me, it makes it funnier. However, I must say, that you need to like Chelsea. I listened to this with my husband (who did listen with me and when I would flip to radio because of going through a toll booth or something - he would usually be the one to flip it back to the book) But anyway - He's not really a Chelsea fan so at the times when I was laughing out loud, he really didn't - but as I said, he DID listen to the whole thing and did manage a couple of chuckles through the book. I really enjoyed it and it made me laugh out loud a bunch - but I'm a fan.
A bit silly and crude, so after the first two chapters I thought I might not continue. However, by the end I was enjoying the humor and the 'company' of Chelsea Handler.
This book it was just crude without counter-balancing cleverness or intelligent humor. Knowing that this was a first person book with quasi-true stories narrated by the author, it made me dislike it even more because I found I could not relate to or generate any affinity for the narrator/author. I would not want this woman as a friend or even a travel companion on a long flight. I stopped listening half way through (which I never do) even though I was on a long trip and had no actual paper books to read and had listened to all my audible books already. I ended up re-listening to stories I had heard before. Don't waste your credit.
Absolutely HILARIOUS! Some people might consider her book offensive, but I listened to it on a long drive home from another state and it made the time fly by. I made my husband listen to it and he loved it, even funnier the 2nd time around!
Snarky, sarcastic and rude. Funny at times, but mostly annoying. Watch her show on E! instead, at least you won't waste your Audible credits.
This book was great! Once I started it I could not stop listening to it. When it comes from the comic herself there is never a dull moment in the book. I would def recommend this book to anyone. You will laugh till you cry. :-)
I was so excited that Chelsea Handler was the narrator of this book and she did not disappoint. I plan to get a copy for everyone in my family. It was absolutely hilarious! It left me wanting more. I'm anxiously awaiting her next book. Fabulous job!!!
