She had always been one of my favorites, and it's nice to read this book by her! She really has great hints for just getting the most out of life. I was lucky enough to meet her once! No, I wasn't one of those women who follow her to the bathroom, she approached me after a play I was in to ask about my body piercings! I love how bold and curious she is. Everyone world get something out of this book!

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

So entertaining! I didn't even feel like I was listening to a book. I felt like I was just hanging out with a hilarious new friend who was telling me about her life! Her performance was fantastic! I loved listening to her voice change as she did the various characters in this book. I can't wait to see what she does next! I laughed, I cried, and I saved money on a two drink minimum, but now I need to see her perform live!

In February 2014, Reni Eddo-Lodge posted an impassioned argument on her blog about her deep-seated frustration with the way discussions of race and racism in Britain were constantly being shut down by those who weren't affected by it. She gave the post the title 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race'. Her sharp, fiercely intelligent words hit a nerve, and the post went viral, spawning a huge number of comments from people desperate to speak up about their own similar experiences.

In a strange world where Rose McGowan was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them.

I used to see her all of the time at the Underground in Seattle, and just wonder what it was like to be her. We never spoke beyond saying "Excuse me" if we passed in a tight spot. She was so beautiful and seemed so confident. Two things that I thought I was not. A couple of years later I saw her in "Doom Generation". I too, was an actress, and again (not realizing that she was the same person that I envied at the Underground) wondered what it was like to be her. "Charmed" was too mainstream for me, but again, I thought she was great , and wondered what it was like to be her in "Death proof" and "Planet Terror". Now, I have a little bit of an idea of what it is like to be her. There is so much more to her than beauty and what I perceived as confidence. I'm sorry her path has not always been worth envy. I hope she is always appreciated for her intelligence, creativity, and her bravery. If you are reading this, Rose, thank you for writing this.

I absolutely loved listening to him read this book! He is a fantastic performer! I enjoyed listening to his familiar voice and I really enjoyed the way he did other characters too. Especially his mother and Michael Jackson. This is easily one of my favorite performances ever on audio books. He's been through it, and keeps going! I respect the hell out of this guy!

I absolutely loved this book! I was expecting a juicy story, and was not disappointed. What I didn't expect the characters to be so deep. More than once I had to go back and listen again to a passage because, although this is fiction, it hit on so many deep truths for so many people. This is the most well written novel that I have listened to this year, and I listen to a lot of books.

In this audiobook, I hope to help you discover more information about schizoid personality disorder, its causes, and where you (or your friend) fall on the broad schizoid spectrum. We'll discuss different reasons that a person might have become schizoid and/or OCPD, including differences in the brain, head injury causes, and the different types of parenting in infancy that might have caused the disorder.

The first love in our lives is our mother. Recognizing her face, her voice, the meaning of her moods, and her facial expressions is crucial to survival. In this book, Dr. Christine Ann Lawson vividly describes how mothers who suffer from borderline personality disorder produce children who may flounder in life even as adults, futilely struggling to reach the safety of a parental harbor, unable to recognize that their borderline parent lacks a pier, or even a discernible shore.
