From Goodreads:
The hilarious new book from the star of Chelsea Lately and the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.
Get ready for big laughs as 
Chelsea Handler lets loose with more comic personal essays, from growing-up stories of discovering “The Feeling” during a third-grade sleepover and getting screwed by her parents during the Cabbage Patch craze, to grown-up tales of dealing with a sister who’s off – and by “off” she means Mormon. Chelsea never lets anyone off the hook, even herself, as she delivers page after page of irrevent humor, biting wit, and deliciously off-kilter entertainment.

I have read Handler’s other two books – Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea and My Horizontal Life - and this book certainly kept the same tone, ridiculousness, and hilarity. I found myself again laughing out loud in public and not even caring when I got the “who is this crazy lady on the train” look. 

Part of me wonders if the stories Handler tells have any ounce of truth to them. I’m not sure it would really bother me if they were all lies because they are so funny. But in this book, Handler finally gives the reader photographic proof that some of these crazy antics actually occurred. 

If you are looking for pure comical relief and a chance to take a break and just literally laugh out loud, this book is definitely for you!

  1. I read My Horizontal Life, it was pretty good. You should try any of Jen Lancaster’s memoirs – Bitter is the New Black is the first one. I like them a lot more, they flow well and are definitely true!

  2. I have been wanting to read her books…I’ll put them on the list :) Thanks for the rec!

  3. I love, love, loveeee these books! Chelsea Handler is my idol.

  4. I love Chelsea. I’ve read Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea? It had me laughing until I couldn’t stop crying. I’m also reading My Horizontal Life right now. So, so funny. Can’t wait to read Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. Thanks for the review!
