One phone call. That's all it took to change Stephanie Wittels Wachs's life forever.... Her younger brother Harris, a star in the comedy world known for his work on shows like Parks and Recreation, had died of a heroin overdose. How do you make sense of such a tragic end to a life of so much hilarious brilliance? In beautiful, unsentimental, and surprisingly funny prose, Stephanie Wittels Wachs alternates between her brother's struggle with addiction, which she learned about three days before her wedding, and the first year after his death, in all its emotional devastation.

I had no idea who Harris was but purchased this book based on reviews. His sister does a great job overall with this book. The only thing I found pretty fucked up was her sharing such personal emails and texts putting her brothers dark personal moments out there for the world to hear. I feel like she kinda exposed her brother for a few bucks.

Busy Philipps’ autobiographical audiobook offers the same unfiltered and candid storytelling that her Instagram followers have come to know and love, from growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona, and her painful and painfully funny teen years to her life as a working actress, mother, and famous best friend. Busy is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents as an actress is equally matched by her storytelling ability, sense of humor, and sharp observations about life, love, and motherhood. Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens of all sizes.

2. She’s the greatest thing on earth
3. Attractive men can’t have brains and they’re full of themselves
4. She doesn’t like to be talked down to like she’s stupid but has no issues doing it to others

The funny and talented Chip Gaines is well known to millions of people as a TV star, renovation expert, bestselling author, husband to Joanna, and father of four in Waco, Texas. But long before the world took notice, Chip was a serial entrepreneur who was always ready for the next challenge. Whether it was buying a neighborhood laundromat or talking a bank into a loan for some equipment to start a lawn-mowing service, Chip always knew that the most important thing was to take that first step.

I'm obsessed with the Gaines family. The first book was so amazing so naturally I just had to listen to this one. Unfortunately, I found myself bored with it from beginning to end and didn't even finish the last 16 minutes. I really wanted to love it but I just can't.

Are you ready to see your fixer-upper? These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like: Who are these people? What's the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life?

People ask Kelly Osbourne all the time: "What's your secret?" Kelly Osbourne may not always have been a typical role model, but no one can say that her perspective isn't hard won after spending three decades in the spotlight. Told as a series of letters to various people and places in her life, There Is No F --king Secret gives listeners an intimate look at the stories and influences that have shaped Osbourne's highly speculated-about life, for better or for worse.
