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)
Real, funny, relateable.
I think it's a unique book, at least right now I can't think of another to compare it to.
Chelsea is a good narrarator, and it just adds to the story when the the author narrarates their own work. She made it seem effortless, I concentrated on the book rather than the performance.
Several times she had me laughing out loud. She cracks me up, but she has a heart also. I'm not sure I knew that about her before the book. She can be so direct sometimes, she comes off as mean. Now I think that she's just being direct in her own way. I get her.
I'll be buying her other books after listening to this one. I've always liked Chelsea, but now I'm a fan of her as an author. The book is enjoyable and will crack you up, it did me.
I love audiobooks. Reading has always been a struggle for me because of my poor eyesight. Audible changed my world and made my commutes a joy.
Chelsea Handler can be very witty, but not in this book. Here she's just trying to shock you with how untamed she is. I'm not impressed or amused.
The way it was read, and personalized made me giggle at so many parts. This was definitely a good listen while needing a distraction on a rough day. I recommend it to anyone who needs a good read.
Yes but I can't remember which one.
Say something about yourself!
One or two decent stories, but mostly she's having a run at Jenny McCarthy's Crude-but-unfunny title.
Depends on the friend. It is really funny, for the most part. There are some parts that are just too crass for me, but it didn't stop me from finishing the book. I thought she would be a better narrator; she's not horrible, but it was hard to keep listening in the beginning. Glad I did, her narration got better as the book went on.

This is one of the funniest book I've ever listened to; and I must say...I've never been a Chelsea Handler fan! THE GIRL CAN WRITE!! And it helps that she is also the narrator. 100% comedy in every chapter, love it to death and more. <3
Many of Heather McDonalds' books.
Her personality is not for the faint at heart; which is why I adore her. She's hilarious. I can't put into words how awesome this book is.
LMAO. Yes. I don't want to ruin it for you. But it takes place at a massage parlor.
Keep doing your thing, Chelsea!
Funny, perverse, unbelievable.
Yes. Just purchased 'My horizontal life'
Yes. You could not believe one story and had to hear another.
I work. I ski. I play. I write. I have a family. I garden. I coach. I volunteer. I sketch. I run. I read.
This is a light book. I could zone out and still catch the gist of it. I thought it was going to be annoying but it actually provided some comic relief in my days. Light and easy.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone. Well, anyone who is not easily offended.
I enjoyed laughing out loud too many times to count.
Comic timing, sarcasm.
This book is a "Laugh til you Cry" book with so many Great Stories about her friends and Family so I would definetely recommend it to my friends and Family!!
The parts about her parents and sister are priceless!
The scene with the police and the jail after her drinking and driving stunt when she just turned 21 with her crazy friend!!
Laugh til I cried of course!!
