This Will Only Hurt a Little
- By: Busy Philipps
- Narrated by: Busy Philipps
- Length: 7 hrs and 56 mins
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.
I wanted to like it so much...

A memoir of a brat who "sobs" everywhere she is
This is the most immature 39 year old I've ever heard still speaking as a 16 year old valley girl. She is constantly making bad choices and then running, sitting, laying, and standing on her head sobbing about them and yet never learning from them. An attention seeking brat who doesn't know enough about herself or her life to be writing a memoir about it. She sadly represents a whole generation of people who can neither feel anything real for anyone but themselves and has no clue why their lives are so screwed up as they make mistake after mistake and laugh off even the truly bad things that happened years ago and only bringing it out now because it seems to be the thing to do. As someone who was raped as an 18 year old, I knew exactly that I was being raped, my feelings about it never changed from moment to moment or year to year because I could actually Feel what was happening in my life. I don't know why we praise these people for their "realness" when they don't have a clue about what is real and what isn't. Are we praising her for being "brave" enough to share all the gory details of her life when it's easy to share your life when you can't feel your life and have no real attachment to anything that has ever happened other than it makes a good story. Ugh!
