Publisher's Summary

From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein.

Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills!

Now, in her first-ever audiobook, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next...to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable self-described...Idiot.

With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original - and undeniably relatable - new voice.

Amazing book

loved it! I had the option to buy the book or the audio book and when I saw that Laura had narrated the book herself I knew I had to go with the audio book just added so much more to the story!!

The world is better having this book in it.

This book is hard but important to read if you or someone in your life has ever been suicidal, addicted to drugs/alchohol or have been in an abusive relationship.

So bad

I’m pretty sure I’m the only non-bot to review this book. I’m so confused how it has five stars.

Absolutely worth every penny, especially for HHS fans!

Laura is such a hilarious and beautiful soul, and beyond inspirational! I have been a huge fan of hers beginning with “Help Helen Smash” but didn’t know her backstory...what a roller coaster of challenges she has endured and overcome!!! Her story about her relationship with her family, trauma from abusive boyfriends, and long road of addiction to her transformed sobriety is so well written, and binge worthy. I listened straight through! Being able to listen to Laura tell her own story was priceless, I am so glad she chose to narrate it. Laura is just so witty and being able to hear her inflections, funny accents, comedic timing, as well as her occasional guest narrator was so special. If you are already a fan, there’s no way that you will not love Laura’s book! If you aren’t a fan, go watch all of Laura’s amazing videos and then enjoy this truly well written and beautifully narrated audiobook.

I'm the "Idiot" for buying this!

SO, SO boring! If you want to listen to the tale of a self-entitled brat from suburbia, who had horrible parents and was basically rewarded in life for being an "Idiot" She talks in a promo about how "Brave and scared" she is if sharing her life, but then, makes excuses and jokes for her behaviors during the entire book. Even saying how "Fun," Mushrooms are...great Mom there....Honestly, I should've based my choice on her "sitcom" etc....I don't like it. I don't think you're "a piece of shit", I just do NOT enjoy your writing.

Couldn’t stop listening

I didn’t know what to expect when I decide to get this book. I would find myself taking the long route home every time so I could listen longer. I wish the book was longer. I loved listening to Laura read it to me. I also love how she shared her life’s journey with us. Congratulations, Laura, for your happiness!!!!

Honest and inspiring, couldn’t stop listening

Laura’s story is a beautiful story of how anyone is capable of change. It is a beautiful story of facing fears and addiction and coming out on the other side. So inspiring.
