A hilarious and emotional personal account of the life, times, mistakes, and crippling codependence of comedian, producer, director, actress, and writer Whitney Cummings. Full of intellect, pathos, and profundity, I'm Fine...and Other Lies is, in Whitney's words, her first book, which means her last date. With her signature incendiary edge and self-deprecation, Whitney comes clean about what has shaped her into the trailblazing comic that she is today.

I love Whitney and have always felt like her in an odd way. Sarcastic, yet caring. Hearing her perform this book in her own words is what makes it even more amazing. You can hear her vulnerability and her truths. When she would tear up reading, I would be crying with her. She has always been a favorite of mine and this book just solidifies that. Thank you Whitney for being vulnerable and showing everyone things that most of us are to afraid to admit to ourselves or possibly don’t even realize we have.

The Gilded Razor is the true story of a double life. By the age of seventeen, Sam Lansky was an all-star student with Ivy League aspirations in his final year at an elite New York City prep school. But a nasty addiction to prescription pills spiraled rapidly out of control, compounded by a string of reckless affairs with older men, leaving his bright future in jeopardy. After a terrifying overdose, he tried to straighten out.

It's hard to not know exactly what users are feeling or mental state is. This book opened my eyes on what the process is for them. It was sad yet had a sense of humor which I enjoyed. I loved that he opened up so many hard a painful emotions. I wish he would have spent longer about his last battle with crystal meth and the mindset he was in as well as the struggles associated with. That chapter was so short yet something I feel is very prevalent and needs to be opened up and discussed so we are better able to help those suffering. Overall it was awesome and I finished listening to it in one day!
