Publisher's Summary

This Audible Exclusive Edition includes new content straight from Celeste! She joined Audible in the recording studio and delivered raw, hilarious, and utterly classic-Celeste moments on everything from the favorite parts of her book to the differences between Australians and Americans, and, most important, why Tim Tams are everything. 

“Prepare to laugh.” (Reese Witherspoon) 

From funny woman, Instagram star, and international comedy sensation Celeste Barber, Challenge Accepted! is a raucous, hilarious, and outspoken guide to life, unwanted gas, and how to rock a sexy scar. 

Part memoir, part comedy routine, part advice manual, Challenge Accepted! is Celeste at her best, revealing her secrets to love, friendship, family, and marriage (oh hai, #hothusband), and how to deal with life’s many challenges - why she checks the bath for sharks, how Nutella quite literally shaped who she is as a woman, and why being famous on Instagram is like being rich in Monopoly. It’s real, like totally, really real.

Challenge fulfilled

Celeste Barber’s book is absolutely wonderful. I laughed, I cried, I snorted while laughing and crying. Must read or listen for all who don’t want to take life so seriously and who value the little things in life. Love you, Celeste! Keep doing you!

Fantastic suggestion!

Honestly I didn't know who Celeste Barber was but the book looked interesting and it was always being recommended...so I figured why not? If it's garbage...trade it back.
Well I'm in love! What a wonderful book and person with such passion and truth. The accent is great to listen to as well!

Absolutely loved!!!

I so enjoyed this book! Her instagram never fails to make me laugh and this book very often did the same while providing some really cool insight into who Celeste Barber is. Her chapter on ADD made me smile and feel a lot of hope for my own kid who is struggling with that.
Can’t recommend this enough!

Made me laugh

I definitely laughed out loud multiple times. Honest and raw without going into the over-sharing category.

Hysterical

Absolutely adored the book. I’ve been following Celeste on Instagram for a while & she is always a bright spot in what can be a cesspool of awfulness.

Prepare to crack up in the grocery store

Listened while folding laundry, running errands, grocery shopping and working in my yard. Frequently found myself unable to suppress my laughter in public. More than ounce loudly cackled and received an odd look from a neighbor or fellow shopper. Will re-read and have already recommended to friends. Moms, wives, sisters, daughters, drama students, folks who like food and/or people w a sense of humor will enjoy.

Funny and Smart

This is a great break from the standard book written by US women. It’s a different perspective and funny as hell.

It wasn’t what I thought

It’s a very good book. Perfect for those with a short attention span as chapters are short and can be read out of order. The book is full of Celeste’s humor but it’s not a comedy. Interesting woman.

Fell in love with her all over again

I have followed Celeste for a while now because of the message she sends with her comedy. She is one-of-a-kind and I adore her. Hearing her story, many parts of which I had no idea, puts things into perspective and explains why laughter is the best medicine. I truly enjoyed this book!

This did not need to be a book

She is funny on Instagram, I can imagine she would be great to watch in a live show as she has awesome energy. Her confidence is great and I love that Celeste is very real and does not make insecure teenagers feel even more insecure. But this did not need to come in the form of a book.
