Description

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.

"This will be one of your favorite books of all time. Through her intensely vulnerable, honest, and hilarious reflections Chelsea shows us more than just her insides. She shows us ourselves." (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 that keeps listeners laughing, even as it inspires us to look within and ask ourselves what really matters in our own lives. 

Advance 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 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)

Candid and revealing.

Chelsea shared her actions, no matter how unflattering.It was interesting to follow her reactions to therapy - starting with mistrust and almost disdain until she admitted that it had relevance.

Was a great listening, motivating and refreshing. I thought it was a bit short, ended more abruptly than I thought but was content nonetheless

A book that is almost impossibly brave.

It takes real guts to live your life on stage, but it takes a kind of bravery you seldom see to be so vulnerable in front of the world. Read this book, listen to it. You will laugh and cry and snort. You will be a mess and be refreshed. You will, at the very least, look at your family differently. I listened to this book in less than 1 day, then I took off my headphones, called my parents and sent funny memes to my brothers. I squeezed my kids extra hard and thought briefly about getting my son allergy shots so we could adopt dogs with contrary dispositions. I fell in love with Chelsea Handler, after years of being a fan, and you will too.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 at her BEST.

Ok ... I’ve loved every book by Chelsea, but this is a standout. If you don’t read / listen to this. I always suggest audible bc you can really feel her words. She’s an excellent orator and this telling will relate to so many people. Her incredible humor is ever-present, which we all love, but the depth of this book hits notes that haven’t been explored by Chelsea until this book.

Best of All Her Books

I have read all of Chelsea’s book and this one was by far the best. I was crying and laughing through the entire book. It gave me a whole new perspective on her and made me think about the things I am doing in my own life.

A side of Chelsea we have not seen. I’m so impressed by her eloquence and honesty.
This book is a gift.
