Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Ali Wentworth offers her hilarious and unique advice on surviving the absurdity of modern life in her third collection of laugh-out-loud comic vignettes. 

Ali Wentworth's first two books, Ali in Wonderland and Happily Ali After, were lauded by listeners, critics, and fellow comedians alike. Entertainment Weekly included Happily Ali After on its "Must List" and hailed it as "hilarious.... Her glass isn't half full - it's empty and cracked", while Cosmopolitan praised it as "razor-sharp." Chelsea Handler called Ali in Wonderland "truly hilarious", and Kathy Griffin christened it "Chicken Soup for the Vagina." Alec Baldwin has described Ali as "funny and warm and crazy all at once. Like Barbara Eden. But on something. Like crystal meth", and Jerry Seinfeld has raved, "Everything that comes out of Ali Wentworth's mouth is funny!" 

At once endearing and hilarious, thoughtful and far-fetched, this third collection offers Ali at her wisest and wittiest as she delivers tips, pointers, and quips on a host of life's conundrums and sticky situations, including the funny, sometimes embarrassing yet unforgettable situations that have shaped her inimitable world view as a wife, mother, actress, comedian, and all around bon vivant. Thoroughly entertaining, Go Ask Ali is packed with thoughts and musings from "the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything" (Huffington Post).

Light and Enjoyable with a Good Message

I was not really on board with Ali, until I read this! She is really funny and has a great outlook on life, motherhood, being a wife, all while maintaining solid perspective about fame and fortune! I'm a big fan now!

Excellent audio book

I really enjoy non fiction books that feel like you are having a conversation with author. And though I did not know anything about Ali, I really liked her book and hated to hear it end. Thanks for writing it.

Love ali but the book lacks depth

Loved Ali’s last book and was hoping to enjoy this one as well. Ali does a great job with the audio recording but her stories seemed to circulate around sex, female body parts and people have affairs. Lacked depth and the level of intelligence as she’s capable of.

Let's be friends Ali Wentworth

This book made me laugh while struggling to get through my day as a stay home mom and artist. Even though we come from different worlds, Ali seems like a friend I would want to have. Her moxy, confidence and her straightforward advice isn't a thing I see in women today. And most of my life people told me that honesty was a bad thing but now I know it's my gift. I love her wit, her ability to laugh at anything from herself to her kids, breaking it down truths, making me remember that life doesn't his have to be serious was relatable and funny because her humour is like mind. So, by the end of the book I felt Ali was a long lost pen pal I'd never meet. Ali Wentworth is my spirit animal.

I felt the audio sample misrepresented the book.

Or I misunderstood.

I liked the audio sample about the bride who didn't want to get married and Ali tried to calm her friend down. I thought the book would be about people in similarly difficult situations and the advice Ali gives them, as she proclaims that she is someone people often go to for advice. I thought that premise sounded interesting.

But I am halfway through and turning it off. I can't take it anymore. So far I've heard about an idyllic childhood eating lobster, ice cream, and steam pots in Maine. Interviewing for a fancy co-op in NYC. Having to let go a nanny who'd been with the family for years. Teenage daughters too obsessed with beauty treatments. Not having anything to add to brunch conversations with girlfriends who spend too much time complaining about their husbands or their affairs. How she feels like she has to hide how she and her husband can't keep their hands off each other. That age-old, sage advice to "not hire a hot babysitter!" How trite.

So many of those issues are "nice to have" problems. And while that doesn't make them any less valid for her story or for her intended audience, I found them difficult to relate to and not what I thought the book was going to be about.

I didn't find the book laugh out loud funny, but I did smile a few times.

Ali's life sounds idyllic and wonderful, and though there is absolutely nothing wrong with a lighthearted read (and this book never pretended to be anything besides that), I found it difficult to relate to, not very compelling, and different from what I thought it was when I bought it. This is a rare book where I felt like the book may be hard to enjoy to readers who are not of the same demographic as the author: white, wealthy, woman, mother.

Not for me - loved her other books

Very disappointed in this book. Ali seemed to be reading very quickly to get done with it all -- perhaps that is why I just did not care for the book. She must have said "my husband and I" a hundred times when a simple "we" would have sufficed. I loved her previous books.

HYSTERICALLY FUNNY

I've not laughed that much in such a long time. I bought the Audible book right after I saw Ali Wentworth interviewed on GMA. I enjoyed every chapter.

enjoyed actually good advice

I enjoyed the book it did have some pretty good advice in it wasn't quite as funny as I thought it might be but I still laughed and I could see myself in the situations Allie seems like a very real person and I love that about her
