WHAT . . . A RIOT! Life doesn't get more hilarious than when Chelsea Handler takes aim with her irreverent wit. Who else would send all-staff emails to smoke out the dumbest people on her show? Now, in this new collection of original essays, the #1 bestselling author of Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea delivers one laugh-out-loud moment after another as she sets her sights on the ridiculous side of childhood, adulthood, and daughterhood. Family moments are fair game, whether it's writing a report on Reaganomics to earn a Cabbage Patch doll, or teaching her father social graces by ordering him to stay indoors. It's open season on her love life, from playing a prank on her boyfriend (using a ravioli, a fake autopsy, and the Santa Monica pier) to adopting a dog so she can snuggle with someone who doesn't talk. And everyone better duck for cover when her beach vacation turns into matchmaking gone wild. Outrageously funny and deliciously wicked, CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG is good good good good! CHELSEA HANDLER ON...Being unpopular: "My parents couldn't have been more unreasonable when it came to fads or clothes that weren't purchased at a pharmacy." Living with her boyfriend: "He's similar to a large toddler, the only difference being he doesn't cry when he wakes up."Appreciating her brother: "He's a certified public accountant, and I have a real life."Arm-wrestling a maid of honor: "It wasn't her strength that intimidated me. It was the starry way her eyes focused on me, like Mike Tyson getting ready to feed."

It had some hilarious moments.3.5 stars
As controversial as Chelsea Handler is, I love her brand of irreverent comedy. Can't be mad at someone who doesn't take herself and the world too seriously. I cracked up nonstop reading My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands but this one didn't do it for me. The first chapter out of th...
3.5 starsThis collection of essays was a quick read for me. Some had me laughing hysterically, and others were more "The joke? Dungeddit..." types, but overall, a pretty enjoyable read. I mean, the book starts off with Chelsea's recollection of learning how to masturbate at 8 and quickly becoming ad...
I'm actually surprised that I gave this a 3 instead of a 4, but looking back having finished it a week ago, I stand by my decision. Compared to 'Are You There, Vodka?' it isn't as strong and for the most parts the stories aren't as funny. It doesn't help that I horribly dislike Chelsea Handler as ...
This has to be one of the funniest books I have read in awhile. I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.... but I kept on reading because it was laugh out loud funny. I love watching her show and her book has a similar taste to it.
