Amy Schumer, Emmy Award-winning comedian, actress, writer, and star, mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationship, and sex, and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is--a woman with the courage to bare her soul and stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh. Ranging from the raucous to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing, this highly entertaining and universally appealing collection is the literary equivalent of a night out with your best friend -- an unforgettable and fun adventure you wish could last forever. --

Although Amy's humor can be vulgar at times, I love how strong and courageous she is. She's willing to put it all on the line and believe in herself along the way. This was another audiobook I grabbed for our San Francisco trip (listening to it on the way home and finishing it later in the week) and it was great that she also was the one who narrates it. I didn't know anything about the book (other than I enjoy Amy as a comedian and actress), and thought it would be funny. She definitely delivered, but the book also hit on some pretty serious topics as well (including gun violence, rape, domestic violence, etc). I appreciate that she doesn't shy away from the "ugly" parts of her story and owns it all. I would give it a 9 out of 10.

I enjoyed this book very much. I think that it being read by the author really makes the listener feel connected.

The more I get to know about Amy Schumer, the more I like her.

I love Amy Schumer! Like any true genius, she is humble and self deprecating, but she is also tough and takes no shit from anyone!

I am a big fan of listening to the memoirs or comedians read by the comedians themselves. Schumer did not disappoint. It alternates chapters between funny stories you would expect to hear at one of her shows, and a glimpse into her life that is more honest and revealing than I was expecting. My heart really went out to her and everything she's been through. Fans of Schumer should take a listen.

good listen.

The stories are honest, funny, and completely random. The usual subject of sex and jokes make up most of the chapters but there is an added seriousness that may make people uncomfortable. The uncomfortable parts give the book substance that I appreciated. If you are not a fan of inappropriate language then this is not the read for you...

Amazing! I love her unfiltered, raw, sense of prose and her life is just soo relatable and wise.
