Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pulos, of Bravo’s reality series Flipping Out, charms in this frank and self-deprecating cross between memoir and how-not-to guide....She isn’t shy about revealing her personal life—like the breakup of her first marriage on national TV or a humiliating encounter with a negative former teacher while working at a grocery store—which only serves to make her more appealing and relatable. Pulos’s central message in this encouraging volume is one that anyone would be smart to heed: when you’re going through hell, keep on going, because everything works out in the end. "--Publishers Weekly

I received my copy of Grin and Bear It in the mail yesterday and read this book in one night! Jenni is so open in this very honest and down to earth memoir. Unlike a lot of celebrity books, I learned so much about how to deal with challenging times. There are real take always throughout the book. Plus, it's really funny, I laughed out loud many times! It's refreshing to find a reality star who is REAL! We'll written, fast paced, emotional and funny,

Obsessed with this books humor and thoughtful outlooks on how to bloom where you're planted.

It truly helped me realize that you need to enjoy the journey, embrace the ride and be glad you don't work for Jeff Lewis.

Format: Hardcover
I just plowed through this book and it was great! Although I am possibly the farthest thing from a Greek reality TV star and rapper, Jenni is so incredibly relatable that it felt like she was speaking to me as a friend. I've definitely made some of the same mistakes she has made, and her simple guidelines for dealing with crappy bosses and crappy situations were smart and doable.

It is so refreshing to see someone famous who is clearly 100% authentic. With Jenni, it's clear that what you see is what you get. Buy this book because it's a fun and funny read. But as a bonus, you'll walk away with some great insight into how to deal with life's curveballs with the grace and humor of a true star.

I read this book in 2 days on my kindle. Loved every minute of it! A lot of laughs, few tears along the way but over-all, a great, easy book to read.

I bought this book thinking it would be a good read as I'm a fan of both Flipping Out and Interior Therapy. I actually couldn't put it down! The stories told were entertaining and the book gave inspiration to those who feel down and out. I highly recommend.
