Description

NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER •

The funny, sad, super-honest, all-true story of Chelsea Handler’s year of self-discovery - featuring a nerdily brilliant psychiatrist, a shaman, four Chow Chows, some well-placed security cameras, various family members (living and departed), friends, assistants, and a lot of edibles

A SKIMM READS PICK • 

“This will be one of your favorite books of all time.” (Amy Schumer)

In a haze of vape smoke on a rare windy night in LA in the fall of 2016, Chelsea Handler daydreams about what life will be like with a woman in the White House. And then Donald Trump happens. In a torpor of despair, she decides that she’s had enough of the privileged bubble she’s lived in - a bubble within a bubble - and that it’s time to make some changes, both in her personal life and in the world at large.

At home, she embarks on a year of self-sufficiency - learning how to work the remote, how to pick up dog shit, where to find the toaster. She meets her match in an earnest, brainy psychiatrist and enters into therapy, prepared to do the heavy lifting required to look within and make sense of a childhood marked by love and loss and to figure out why people are afraid of her. She becomes politically active - finding her voice as an advocate for change, having difficult conversations, and energizing her base. In the process, she develops a healthy fixation on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and through unflinching self-reflection and psychological excavation, unearths some glittering truths that light up the road ahead. Thrillingly honest, insightful, and deeply, darkly funny, Chelsea Handler’s memoir keeps listeners laughing, even as it inspires us to look within and ask ourselves what really matters in our own lives.

Praise for Life Will Be the Death of Me

“You thought you knew Chelsea Handler - and she thought she knew herself - but in her new book, she discovers that true progress lies in the direction we haven’t been.” (Gloria Steinem)

“I always wondered what it would be like to watch Chelsea Handler in session with her therapist. Now I know.” (Ellen DeGeneres) 

“I love this book not just because it made me laugh or because I learned that I feel the same way about certain people in politics as Chelsea does. I love this book because I feel like I finally really got to know Chelsea Handler after all these years. Thank you for sharing, Chelsea!” (Tiffany Haddish)

Ce que les critiques en disent

“The Chelsea Handler I know is a take-no-prisoners activist for the causes she believes in. She brings the same fearlessness and commitment to telling her truth in this book. I’m hoping that one day, in exchange for this blurb, she will let me see the security camera footage of the dog fight in her bedroom.” (Trevor Noah)

Great...as expected

Have loved all her books. This one really hit home, I laughed, I cried, I completely related. Thank you Chelsea for your absolute transparency and bravery.

One too many stories of being on drugs

This feels like a story of a drunk, high and random self-reflection. Listening to this I felt like it was a vulgar version of Eat Pray Love, albeit with more swearing and less insides. I did appreciate the introduction to Dan Siegel's work, so some points for that. The author has a sense of humor and is a very animated narrator, but the plot and gist of the book is not for me.

Another "Poor Me"

I purchased this book because I like
Ms. Handers humor, however her perception of her childhood was tiring and not that interesting.

Incredibly Moving

I laughed with her and cried with her. I've followed Chelsea and read all of her books since the late 90's and she continues to amaze me. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story.

A healing journey.

Great book to listen to. It was so poignant when I heard the heartfelt emotion in Chelsea's voice. I also laughed out loud with her dog stories. Dr. Dan's helpful "I AM" exercise is a keeper. Her commitment to do the inner work is admirable because it is so damn tough to really look at our behaviours, where they come from and their impact on others. This book is great if you are on a path of healing and enjoy some comic relief along the way.

Chelsea is not a robot after all.

Despite the lack of funny, it wasn't meant to be funny.
However, it was amazing. It made my heart heavy at times. Many times. There is humor. Just enough to lighten the mood during moments of sadness. I could hear the emotion in Chelsea's voice as she narrated.
So open. Honest. Can't be easy to expose the human underbelly. Chelsea did just that. Boobs out.

a wake up call for self reflection

inspiring to hear her and her "journey". I wept with her and saw myself in so many of her stories and feelings. It's time to stand up. it's time to self reflect and move forward xo

You will laugh and cry sometimes at the same time.

If you are a fan of Chelsea you will love this book. If you don't know Chelsea I think you will still like this book. It's heartfelt; intriging and really funny.

Raw Chelsea Hander

I absolutely loved this book. Her honesty in previous books is what kept me going back to her writing time and time again. She’s got such a way with descriptions of her interactions as a child. As she said she’s been a 40 year old woman her whole life, and she doesn’t fail to prove it.

This book was different from the others, in that her emotional honesty was bled across the book like open wounds. It was so painfully honest it was hard to not get choked up listening to the tears in her voice as she explained her life and her realizations. At the beginning of the book I was like, “Great, she’s going to complain about DT the entire book.” But she found her way around it and it blossomed into an amazing, intricate albeit emotional grasp of her incredible life.

Thank you, Chelsea for writing a deeply intimidate book about yourself. You never had to, but knowing you a little better helps me know myself as well. If you’ve done this for me, I can fully appreciate you’ve done it for many others. My heart is full knowing your journey has come full circle for you and you have some piece in this crazy life.

Listened start to finish in one sitting.

I couldn’t bare to stop this fantastic book and listened to the whole thing in one sitting. As someone who is currently in therapy working through a lifetime of childhood trauma I respect the hell out of Chelsea, this book and her revelations. It is not easy to sit with the things you have been running from your whole life, look them in the eye and decide what to do with them. It is the hardest thing I have ever done but as Chelsea points out it is worth every painful, enlightening minute. At once charming, painful, and funny this book runs the spectrum of emotions that we’ve all experienced through our lives and in dealing with deaths. Hearing Chelsea read this in her own voice, every crack and tremble only drove home the transformation she experienced. Highly recommend.

Just O.K.

Had Chelsea Handler not been famous and had she not written some very funny books in the past, this book might never have made it into print (or, in this case, onto a recording). Chelsea goes to therapy where we learn about her sad childhood, lousy father, etc. However, way too much of this book is focused on her dogs. I love my dog - don't we all? But, really, would you want to listen to me drone on about my dogs for an hour?

This woman took a 70 lb. dog on a plane (first class) to Europe. She didn't once mention the reactions of the other first class fliers who probably weren't amused. How funny is it, really, that she adopted the two chow mix dogs, presumably the ones on the cover of the book, and then sent them for at least 4 months of training after two days because she failed to find out anything about them before the adoption and, well, she could afford it.

She is free to search for life's deeper meaning because staff takes care of everything else to the point where she breezily tells her therapist how irritating it is that she can't figure out how to turn on her own music system nor find the toaster in her kitchen. I'm sure her house is very nice but it's probably not Mar-a-Lago and, if she can't find the toaster, it is no doubt because she hasn't looked for it. Obviously, I'm in the minority, but I thought this book was mostly self indulgence dressed up as gaining insight through therapy. She does hate Donald Trump, though. There is that. But, only marginally interesting and not very funny.

Audible: Narration adds another layer to this

Throughout this book I listened, I laughed and then tears rolled down my face as she spoke of the death of her brother and Mother. I connected the most with her “awakening” after the election, dealing with loss/grief, and her enthusiasm for cannibis. <—And not in that order. Congratulations on doing the work to become a better human being. I bet I know what Dr. Dan is getting for Christmas!

Chelsea Handler's Best Book

This is Chelsea's best book. It's Honest, Raw, Touching, Inspiring and Hilarious. You will cry with her, laugh with her and laugh through your tears. I highly recommend the audiobook cause she reads it and it's just so good.

This book will be the death of me

If I would’ve known she would alienate all Trump supporters I never would’ve bought this book...she takes every chance she can to bash Trump, and never considers that some of her readers probably voted for him, which is why he is our president.
Her chapter on her dogs is long and drawn out with way too much unnecessary detail, and mind you, I am a huge dog lover.
This was just like reading the transcripts from her conversations with her therapist for most of the book.
I’m not sure if she meant it to be a self help book, but it was neither that or funny at all.
I’m sorry I wasted my time listening 😑

I just don't care to hear white girl revelations

let me start by saying I like handler a lot. I was excited for this book. I started in and found that as handler went on and on about her realizations after the election. I just didn't care. I didn't care that she realized her white privilege, I didn't care that she realized how out of touch she was. I just didn't care to hear another white girl talk about privilege, while making money off that privilege.

Beautiful. Intimate. Open.

I wasn’t ready to let this end. Listened to it start to finish over two days. Beautifully written, intimate and open. It took such bravery for CH to come forward with such vulnerability. I stopped and cried listened while walking my dog, thinking about the baby I lost two years ago, how hard it is to sit with grief, how important. This is the big, adult, stuff. I’m happy for anyone who finds their way on to the right therapists couch to see themselves, know themselves and start the work to love and accept themselves.
