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)
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!
No, I probably will stay clear from any books written by Chelsea Handler.
Have no issues getting a book with her as a narrator, she truly did do a good job there.
No, but it will probably be a while before I order another autobiography style book from the entertainment section.
Chelsea Handler was the perfect narrator for this book, it is just a pity that most of the context came over as a self indulgent rant.
There are some parts in the book in which you can finally detect her brutally honest,funny and unafraid personality. But they are to far and few in-between the other parts that all come over as self absorbed, eager to name drop & whinny.
I just expected to laugh more…
I did not think this one was that great, so I wouldn't be interested in follow up.
It was a letdown, like she just got tired of writing. Or she came up against her deadline and just ended it there.
Who edits these questions? You already asked me that.
No. Because this was just a bunch of stories and the characters weren't all that interesting.
I've seen Chelsea Lately and I think she's funny, but a little bit of her goes a long way. This was too much.
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.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
