Publisher's Summary

For decades, Joan Rivers was known as America's top female comedian... her brash unsparing style and truly tenacious spirit inspired both her fellow comedians and her millions of fans. In her own voice, she recounts her personal story from the inside out - her anguish, her anger, her insight, her inspiration - from her rags to riches struggle on the hard way to the top, to the breakthrough act which not only changed her world but also changed the world of stand-up comedy.

Great autobiography, audio muffled

Loved hearing Joan Rivers story, right up to the end when she finally made it to Carson. As always, it's great listening to the narration in the authors voice, I've listened to quite a few books by Joan. Only complaint; the audio was really muffled and almost inaudible in places, had to turn the sound up LOUD to have a clue to what was being said. Aside from that, excellent!

My absolute favourite!

Joan Rivers is truly amazing! Her poignant words and heartfelt retelling of her story warmed me deeply. How poetic that I should hear her first book for the first time on the 3rd anniversary of her death...and what a true shame it is that Joan isn't still with us.

I cried with her at the end, and I look forward to my next book by Joan.
