Publisher's Summary

This Audible Exclusive Edition includes new content straight from Celeste! She joined Audible in the recording studio and delivered raw, hilarious, and utterly classic-Celeste moments on everything from the favorite parts of her book to the differences between Australians and Americans, and, most important, why Tim Tams are everything. 

“Prepare to laugh.” (Reese Witherspoon) 

From funny woman, Instagram star, and international comedy sensation Celeste Barber, Challenge Accepted! is a raucous, hilarious, and outspoken guide to life, unwanted gas, and how to rock a sexy scar. 

Part memoir, part comedy routine, part advice manual, Challenge Accepted! is Celeste at her best, revealing her secrets to love, friendship, family, and marriage (oh hai, #hothusband), and how to deal with life’s many challenges - why she checks the bath for sharks, how Nutella quite literally shaped who she is as a woman, and why being famous on Instagram is like being rich in Monopoly. It’s real, like totally, really real.

This did not need to be a book

She is funny on Instagram, I can imagine she would be great to watch in a live show as she has awesome energy. Her confidence is great and I love that Celeste is very real and does not make insecure teenagers feel even more insecure. But this did not need to come in the form of a book.

Hysterical

Absolutely adored the book. I’ve been following Celeste on Instagram for a while & she is always a bright spot in what can be a cesspool of awfulness.

Prepare to crack up in the grocery store

Listened while folding laundry, running errands, grocery shopping and working in my yard. Frequently found myself unable to suppress my laughter in public. More than ounce loudly cackled and received an odd look from a neighbor or fellow shopper. Will re-read and have already recommended to friends. Moms, wives, sisters, daughters, drama students, folks who like food and/or people w a sense of humor will enjoy.

Not funny, not clever

Totally don't get this. She is neither creative nor funny nor original. Really a waste of time. Don't get the hype at all.

Go listen to this.

I laughed and cried. It is a beautiful book. A lot of which most women can relate to. I really love that she has a chapter for each important person in her life and how each one has contributed to her life.

Insanely good!

This is everything and more! She is animated and hilarious. I felt she was having a conversation with me, not reading me a book. If you love her, you will LOVE this!

Such an entertaining read

It's the first celeb autobiography I've read and I had no idea what to expect but I loved it. Despite following Celeste on Instagram for years I had no idea who she was and what she was like. She's hilarious, down to earth, and manages to sneak in a lot of current topics and fresh perspective on some of our societal norms. I think I read this book in a day and a half, it was just so fun.
