Publisher's Summary

From the cocreator and costar of the hit series Broad City, a hilarious and poignant collection about love, loss, work, comedy, and figuring out who you really are when you thought you already knew.

When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn't she going with friends? Wouldn't it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one... why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. 

As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions: What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood? In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections - all told in the sharp, wildly funny, and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike - listeners will feel like they're in the passenger seat on a fun and ultimately inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Poignant, funny, and beautifully unabashed, I Might Regret This takes readers on both a cross-the-country adventure and a deep dive into Abbi Jacobson's gigantic heart." (Cheryl Strayed)
 

"Intimate and brave in a way her audience has yet to experience, I Might Regret This is a funny, vulnerable, generous, and excruciatingly honest look at the beautiful heart that beats inside Abbi Jacobson." (Samantha Irby, New York Times best-selling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and Meaty)

"As a passionate fan of Abbi Jacobson's comedy, it was no surprise to me that this book is hilarious, peculiar, and very smart. But I was unprepared for the courage she shows in making herself vulnerable on these pages: Jacobson cracks herself open and explores love and loneliness, travel and independence, success and self-loathing. I wish I hadn't finished reading this...I miss her already." (Ariel Levy, New York Times best-selling author of The Rules Do Not Apply)

Stressful listen

If I had to describe I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff in one word it would be stressful.

If you enjoy reading page after page (or listening to hour after hour) of late night neurotic ramblings, then this book might be perfect for you. I, on the other hand, am already a high-strung Jew who is tortured by what ifs and worst case scenarios late at night, so this book just made me sweat and think of what I am possibly currently doing wrong with my life.

I love Broad City, like most (if not all) of the other people reading this book, but I found the story hard to get through. It actually got a lot better towards the end for me, but I slogged through hours of rambling that I didn't find particularly funny.

Though I enjoyed learning about Abbi being a boss and discovering her sexuality, I can't say that I recommend this audiobook.

Love love love Abbi. Hate that I didn’t love this book.

It really pains me to write this because I am a huge Broad City & Abbi Jacobson fan, so I was psyched to listen to this. I was sadly really disappointed. This seems like something she could have written in a diary and probably not published. Chapter 13, where she talks about her professional background, was the only time I was really engaged. Also, like another reviewer said, I felt more irritated than entertained and found myself just trying to get through it so I could move on to something else. So bummed! Maybe it would have been better to read than to listen to. I wouldn’t (sorry Abbi!!!) recommend.

Exceeds Expectations

Wonderfully and passionately narrated by the writer, Abbi. She is real and relatable and full of surprises

I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of her Series, Broad City.

This book pretty much applies to any fellow human (or dog, cat, etc.) whether you’re a struggling young creative, a socially analytical introvert or simply someone who appreciates good story telling.

Quick listen- bright, funny and sincere

Loved abbi’s narration

Loved her affect and effects as a narrator. Plus, great writing. Meaningful, both funny and sad, without veering off inauthentically. Would highly recommend!

Someone understand what’s going on in my brain!

Never before have I felt so understood, so seen, by a total stranger. She put into writing what’s been going on in my brain for YEARS and nothing is more refreshing. I finally felt understood and like I’m not alone. The comedic timing, thoughtful detail, descriptive emotion, and heartfelt stories made me feel like I was in the passenger seat the entire time, experiencing everything right along side Abby. I can’t say enough positive things about this journey. I’m glad she did it and I hope she doesn’t regret it.

Not for me

Got about halfway through and stopped listening. Didn't find any of the stories terribly interesting, If you're familiar with her work or a fan, maybe it'll be more enjoyable. Narrated by the author is always a plus.

And you thought it just happened to you

The cool thing about this book is -00it’s like talking to your best friend about all the stuff that only you thought you were hung up about or knew about or cared about. It lets your self-assuredness not sound so smug but the way it should be and Drifting back into the memories of the past is an Inevitable happening -again and again in your life. And that love is just love -a most splendid and complex thing. And Abbi is a keeper!
