Aisha Tyler, comedian, actress, cohost of CBS's The Talk, star of Archer, and creator of the top-ranked podcast Girl on Guy, serves up a spectacular collection of her own self-inflicted wounds. From almost setting herself on fire, to vomiting on a boy she liked, to getting drunk and sleeping through the SATs, to going into crushing debt to pay for college and then throwing away her degree to become a comedian, Aisha's life has been a series of spectacularly epic fails. And she's got the scars to prove it. Literally.

As a warning Aisha is very witty, and her memoir is overly saturated with witty sentence structure. This is both good and bad; however, most definitely what makes it stand out as a hidden gem. The memoir's construction is the second most noteworthy aspect. She starts each chapter with a philosophical quote, her interjection to the philosophical quote, and the two serve as a theme to the chapter. Also, in each chapter, you can expect to hear about one of her life's humiliations, and she pretty much does this chronologically throughout the book, a third wonder of the book.

Her delivery of her memoir is perfect--- GREAT rhythm and cadence. It's kind of hard to read the actual book, due to her saturated sentences, but her audiobook is digestable.

I love her all encompassing theme at the end, as well. She truly showcases her wit, charm, and shame in this work. Oh, and it's pretty funny, if I didn't mention that. I enjoyed listening, I am a satisfied customer.

The best narration of the series yet! The story is amazing in print, and read well here too. The flow of this particular story itself allows it to translate well to reading, whereas, if we're honest, some books can't. I recommend!

It's great to hear Poehler's voice giving her personal constant stream on life and herself. It's very intimate, like your cool actress/comedian older sister is sharing her life at a sleepover and for the next couple days at home. Plainly: if you enjoy Poehler's humor, you'll enjoy the audio book.

Leading a small army of slaves, Nat Turner was a man born with a mission: to set the captives free. When words failed, he ignited an uprising that left over 50 whites dead. In the predawn hours of August 22, 1831, Nat Turner stormed into history with a Bible in one hand, brandishing a sword in the other. His rebellion shined a spotlight on slavery and the state of Virginia and divided a nation's trust. Turner himself became a lightning rod for abolitionists like Harriet Beecher Stowe and a terror and secret shame for slave owners.

A fair approach to Nat Turner's story. Kind of a fictional recreation that's subjective at the right times, and objective at the right times. A sensitive subject as a fictional recreation with flair!
