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 found a lot of this book to be obnoxious. I laughed in parts, but, it was often pretty mean, gross, offensive, or crude humor.
I was disappointed with this download. I noticed it was in the top 10, wanted something lighthearted, and missed it in this book. Handler is not funny. She got a few snorts out of me, no LOLllers. She comes across, rather than funny, as bitchy, grating, and mean.
Maybe that's her MO in standup. Some of you may like that brand of vodka in comedy.
But for me, my recommendation is to use your credit elsewhere.
Love her books too funny! Easy read I would recommend. I like both her books that I have read thinking about ready the one her friends did based on the lies she's told.
Loved the stories, her humor & voice. She is so funny. I found myself laughing like a lunatic while walking around Boston listening to this silly book. I loved it! Want to read all her books now.
Witty and raunchy can best describe Chelsea Handler AND her book. Not only was the story absolutely enjoyable, but her narration is what truly makes the audio version of this book so great. I've read the book and listened to it, and I must say I almost prefer the audio version which is rare for me. I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Chelsea or her type of comedy, and I will certainly listen again (I've already listened a few times at that!).
Yes I would recommend this audiobook and have multiple times!
I bought this because my grandfather passed away and I needed something to get my mind off of everything and lets just say depression and tears turned to laughing so hard I had to turn it off so I could catch my breath.
I loved the fact that it was narrated by Chelsea Handler herself! I read the book before but it was so much better listening to her tell the stories.
I loved hearing about her family and her as a kid
I have read this book before but the audio book made me laugh even harder
The stories were very entertaining, but the book isn't well written. She recycles punch lines and tongue-in-cheek descriptors way too often for such a short book.
Counselor with eclectic taste, I enjoy all types of fiction, dark, strange and twisted things, humor and explicitly.
Way Up There... TOPS!
Well.... how can I put this? The part that referred to the anatomy of man...LOL
Her delivery is great, as always, raunchy yup... and I love her lack of a filter
Several moments had me crossing my legs (wink)... I was laughing so hard
If your a prude pass it by, If you want to laugh out loud don't!
