Publisher's Summary

You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool Enter Chelsea Handler. Gorgeous, sharp, and anything but shy, Chelsea loves men and lots of them. My Horizontal Life chronicles her romp through the different bedrooms of a variety of suitors, a no-holds-barred account of what can happen between a man and a sometimes very intoxicated, outgoing woman during one night of passion. From her short fling with a Vegas stripper to her even shorter dalliance with a well-endowed little person, from her uncomfortable tryst with a cruise ship performer to her misguided rebound with a man who likes to play leather dress-up, Chelsea recalls the highs and lows of her one-night stands with hilarious honesty. Encouraged by her motley collection of friends (aka: her partners in crime) but challenged by her family members (who at times find themselves a surprise part of the encounter), Chelsea hits bottom and bounces back, unafraid to share the gritty details. My Horizontal Life is one guilty pleasure you won't be ashamed to talk about in the morning.

    "Def good listening!"

    I laughed out loud many times and received many stares from strangers when listening to Chelsea's book out in public. I think the book works so much better when the author can read the book. This is so true for this book. I would recommend for a good laugh.

    "Eww"

    I am someone who actually seeks out raunchy humor. I enjoy erotic novels even. But this was painful to listen to! It's NOT funny. Chelsea Handler basically sets out to act like a man-whore and succeeds. Spoiler alert! She sleeps with a lot of random men. Then she complains about their skills and their endowments. But her jokes have all been done before by other comics. If it had been written better, it might have been worth reading. All in all, it came off as a tired, overdone, boring read. It takes a really rare talent to make sex boring. Don't waste your money!

    "Narrator ruins it."

    I cannot recommend this audible version of the book because of its narration. If Ms. Handler were to narrate it, I'd get it again in a heartbeat.

    "Funny stuff"

    Along the lines of other women comedians this is a humorous look at the challenges they face. Enjoyable diversion.

    I would have enjoyed this book more if it had been narrated by Chelsea Handler.

    "Sad stories"

    I was hoping for a female "I hope they serve beer in hell". Not at all what I got from this book. Low self esteem and sad stories of settling for awkward sex at best.

    "Not read by author - didn't know this before purchasing"

    She definitely makes the book more interesting when she is reading it herself. Not as happy with this as her other books narrated by her. But still hilarious!
