It's no lie: Chelsea Handler loves to smoke out "dumbassness", the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers - they've all been tricked by Chelsea into believing stories of total foolishness and into behaving like total fools. Luckily, they've lived to tell the tales and, for the very first time, write about them.

Yes, because it is read by the people who have experienced the stories themselves it makes it a lot funnier to hear
other Chelsea Handler books
the wedding scene with the Shania Twain performance
Nothing at all. These are horrible stories about practical jokes that are way to over the top for my taste. I do think she if funny but the things she does to the people in her life are horrible and cruel and I guess that is where I draw the line of funny.
No, not at all but will just be more careful in the future about reading others reviews.
No, I could not even finish it. It made me want my money back for purchasing it.
I had to stop listening to it because it was sickening to hear how horribly violating Chelsea is to her friends, family, and coworkers. I did not find anything she does to people she knows funny or even interesting. The only reason I purchased it was because several people I know say that she is "hilarious"...I did not find anything about her even remotely funny.
It was really sad to hear what people closest to her are willing to tolerate just to be near her or associated with her in anyway. It was disgusting. I regret to have wasted my money on this very sad tale of how she violates others and gets away with it, legally and otherwise. I hope that at the very least, the royalties for this "piece" goes to her victims and none to her.
I will never recommend anything about her to anyone other than those who want to study people with deviant behaviors.

I adore Chelsea Handler...on TV anyway. What a dissapointment. After I downloaded it, a friend said she wished she'd warned me. She said (and she was right) this is a poor account of immature mean spirited acts supposedly by CH. It doesn't roll out as funny or interesting...just kinda mean. I just kept saying, "wow, what an uncool thing to do to someone." Why would you want a book like this to come out? Sorry, Chels...I would've bought anything from you...not now. This book sort of weirded me out.
Wow, she is a hoot.. I'm a fan so I really thought it was funny, I loved hearing all the stories.. It was much better than I expected considering all the poor reviews. I liked it a lot!
Absolutely hilarious. Really wish Chelsea would have lended her talents, but everyone else is voiced by their actual selves. First-hand experiences told by writers, and those in the late-night shenanigans of this comedy group.
You probably know already if you're going to get this or not. If you're interested in a first-listen to the life of Chelsea Handler, you should probably start elsewhere.
A must read/listen for those of us who love to laugh! I enjoy Chelsea Handler's crude, dry and honest humor. The form in which this book was written is spectacular for listening. You can share in the real life humiliation of other people while they share the story of how it happened. Thank god for people like Chelsea Handler who have the coslopus to actually do unto others for the sake of entertainment. Thanks to all authors who had me rolling in laughter the whole time.
This book was definitely laugh out loud funny! I can't believe some of the pranks Chelsea has played on her friends. Like the book says though, if she isn't pranking you, she doesn't care about you. Knowing that, if Chelsea ever played a prank on me I can only assume I would feel honored.
I WISH Chelsea had read her own parts of the book...I think it would have been funnier to hear her take on each of the other narrator's stories directly from her.
If Chelsea read it herself. It sounded to scripted, and chelsea is alot funnier telling her story.
