Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A hilarious and deeply emotional book.” Cosmopolitan
“The comedian’s essay collection isn’t just bitingly funny—it’s also raw, honest, and often heartbreaking. We dare you to walk away without even greater understanding and respect for Schumer.” Entertainment Weekly
"[An] always staggeringly authentic ride through the highs and lows of the comedic powerhouse’s life to date.” Harper’s Bazaar
“For a comedian of unbridled (and generally hilarious) causticity, Schumer has written a probing, confessional, unguarded, and, yes, majorly humanizing non-memoir.” Vogue
“Schumer chronicles her life with digestible stories that impart powerful messages through a kind of logic of the opposite: she makes mistakes so that we can learn from them.” Rolling Stone
“A better, more deeply felt life-so-far book than most I’ve read…Schumer weaves a brave, vulnerable tale without falling into the usual celebrity traps of neediness and defense.” Chicago Tribune
“Fans will enjoy this memoir about her journey as a female comic. Her delivery makes you feel like you’re in a room while she’s laughing at her foibles. Her experience as a comic translates into many strengths as an audiobook narrator. Her pace is rapid—so quick, in fact, that you may miss a joke now and them…This is a delightful listen with one of comedy’s most honest, funniest voices.” AudioFile
“Amy’s got your back. She’s in your corner. She’s an honesty bomb. And she’s coming for you.” Tilda Swinton, actor
