Publisher's Summary

“Whitney Cummings has written a book about being, well, not fine - and what to do when you find yourself with brutal anxiety and a co-dependency disorder; all in her trademark wit, humor, and honesty. This book, however, is fine as hell.” (Sophia Amoruso, author of #Girlboss)

“The funniest cry for help you'll read this year.” (BJ Novak)

Well, well, well. Look at you, ogling my audiobook page.... I presume if you’re reading this, it means you either need more encouragement to buy it or we used to date and you’re trying to figure out if you should sue me or not. Here are all the stories and mistakes I’ve made that were way too embarrassing to tell on stage in front of an actual audience; but thanks to not-so-modern technology, you can hear about them here so I don’t have to risk having your judgmental eye contact crush my self-esteem. 

This audiobook contains some delicious schadenfreude in which I recall such humiliating debacles as breaking my shoulder while trying to impress a guy, coming very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison, and having my lacerated ear sewn back on by a deaf guy after losing it in a torrid love affair. 

In addition to hoarding mortifying situations that’ll make you feel way better about your choices, I’ve also accumulated a lot of knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths that can probably help you avoid making the same mistakes I’ve made. Think of this audiobook as everything you’d want from the Internet all in one place, except without the constant distractions of ads, online shopping, and porn.  

I’m not sure what else to say to say, except that you should buy it if you want to laugh and learn how to stop being crazy. And if we used to date, see you in court.

Funny & insightful

Whitney is so honest in her story. This is more insightful than anything but she adds humour often that made me laugh out loud. Recommend and will read again!

Disappointing

I love her animal activism and tv writing Whitney but this book was disappointing not life changing like Whitney suggested it was. I appreciated her honesty but not that interesting.

Wendy is telling you everything!


#Audible1

I found a strong feeling of agreement on her chapter "Codependent". It cleared my mind, solved my mystery and taught me how to handle my own preferences over others. It's exploration to me on every chapter of this book. I absolutely not gonna regret having this book.

Thanks, Whitney,

Leo

Tell your friends about this great book

It is not for easy reading or listening but Whitney has shared so much and I learnt a lot about myself and my friends. As Whitney narrated the book herself she has the same wit that she has in her shows. I really felt it was a worthwhile listen and listened to a many chapters more than once. Also audible's app on my iPhone was great to use for this. #audible1

I'm not crying...you're crying

This book! Wow - it was so much more than I was expecting. Picking a book from a comedian I was expecting something a little lighter.

She is so raw, there were points when you could hear her tearing up and I would tear up. I literally found myself laughing out loud as I was listen to this book, and a points even crying. Amazing and well worth the listen!

Unexpected, but good read

This book was a lot more insightful than I had expected. Naturally, there were a lot of laugh-out-loud funny parts, but overall, the book had a more serious and vulnerable tone. Very relatable, and Whitney Cummings does a great job narrating!

Genuine and vulnerable

Exactly what you want in a book and even more so in an audiobook. Whitney’s honesty, clarity of expression and in-depth presentation of some of her life experiences thus far, offer us the reader/listener, a wonderful opportunity to see not only her wise(albeit in hindsight at times) points of view but also a reflection of ourselves in her words and thought patterns. It feels more like she is talking with you than reading words off a page. Genuine and vulnerable. Admirable qualities in not only a human but also in an awesome book, be it audio or otherwise. If you appreciate and/or relate to Whitney, I can guarantee you’ll feel the same way about her book. Cheers.

I've been waiting for this woman to write a book!

I've heard Whitney Cummings on podcasts and stand up talk hint and, at times, directly confront her winding road of research and self discovery.

Whitney goes all in with this book, delivering a vulnerable memoir of raw expression. She opens up about the trials most women go though, think about, and run from. She is refreshingly honest and sprinkles in enough humility and permission for you to know you're not alone in your own struggles.

Whitney occasionally takes recording off script and allows you to connect with her in that moment. There are times that she's so connected that you can hear her emotions come through in a way I've never seen on stage. While speaking up about her values and gender inequality for both men and women, Whitney also provides insight and examples of how hard those have been to change. She's also keenly aware of her potential bias in ways that are so wonderful and, she calls them out, encouraging us to also question what we *know* to be true.

If her goal was to bring honest, funny, encouraging words to women and men to be open, honest, and vulnerable to move us all forward... then she's done it. The rest is up to us to move forward and be, better. Love you, mean it.

Amazing

This book is exactly what I have been searching for in a self help book for years....authentic, knowledgeable and hilarious. I have learned so much and it has helped bring somethings to light in my own life. I highly recommend this book.

Wow, heard an interview on Howard Stern and decided to check out the book. Best book I've had the opportunity to listen to lately. I've already bought other copies to give to people for gifts.

More of a Self Help book, really...

I expected a funny, Ha-Ha book here, but instead ended up getting a psych 101 course. I love Whitney's stand up and her tv show, but this book was not what I was expecting.

Amazing

Whitney makes a claim early on in the book that this book will “change your life” and she was right. This book talks about very powerful and insightful topics. I think there’s something everyone can relate to. It’s funny and inspiring and I loved it!

Hypochondriac's Wet Dream

I was hoping this would be a funny little memoir like Posey Parker's book or Judy Greer. This book is not that. It is all about her Whitney's illnesses and therapy. The comedy is forced. Even though she is famous and had more money than me, I just feel sorry for her. I wish I had saved my credit. So if you are a glutton for punishment purchase this book.

Thank you! I am fine now :)

Such a great book full of great realistic advise. Whitney makes learning about the crazy things and her life a fun adventure. Part of the story I am surprised and want to find away to help the other half I am looking inside and learning thirds about myself. The great thing is I am laughing with her the whole book! Thank you!! I am going to be fine!

Ok...

Kind of funny, kind of whiny. Nothing very groundbreaking or original. I was not impressed.

Disappointing

It was tough to get through all the first world problems in this book. Great narration by a smart, dynamic stand up comic - but all I️ heard in this one was whining and pretentiousness.

She's real

I really enjoyed listening to Whitney read this and the real emotion she had.

Plus it's nice to know we're all crazy on some level.
