I'm the One That I Want, based on her show of the same name, is filled with dead-on insights about the experience of being a woman with attitude, of flowing with the highs and lows of life, and of creating one's own identity and acceptance. It is every bit as hilarious, shocking, and irreverent as she is.

Reading this book wasn't as awful as listening to Cho read it aloud. She wrote interesting material but turns herself into such a victim in her portrayal that it is hard to bear.
