Wouldn't it be great if life came with an instruction manual? Of course, but like access to Michael B. Jordan's house, none of us are getting any. Thankfully, Phoebe Robinson is ready to share everything she's experienced in hopes that if you can laugh at her topsy-turvy life, you can laugh at your own.

Phoebe is so funny and cleaver. I was so amused I literally lol more times than my coworkers were comfortable with. I loved the parts when she deviated from reading the book and gave side bars or laughed. Two books down and I hope many more to come.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

Sometimes you just have to laugh, even when life is a Dumpster fire. With We Are Never Meeting in Real Life., "bitches gotta eat" blogger and comedian Samantha Irby turns the serio-comic essay into an art form.

I love that the author narrated the book, it helped to paint the well written words into a beautiful picture.
