“Often hilarious, often shocking, totally politically incorrect.”—Liz Smith
“An entertaining rant on how she hates nearly everything and everyone, especially herself….The only thing missing is the sound of a drum roll and cymbals to feel as though one is sitting in a nightclub watching a live comedy marathon.”—Kirkus Reviews
"Joan Rivers is extraordinary, but she's not for the easily offended-or for anyone who gets offended at all.”--People

Four stars instead of five because I'm afraid giving it five will get me sent straight to hell when I die. You understand, don't you, Joan?
Nothing is sacred, everything is a target for her quick wit. If you are easily offended, skip this book. If you like old-fashioned stand-up, click that "buy" button now - it's like a trip back to the Borscht Belt.
I cannot think of any other entertainer who would have the guts to write this, but Joan Rivers does and I applaud her for it. Believe me you will not sit down with this book and say, "boring", because nothing Joan does or writes about is boring. The subtext to this book is to let your feelings out and don't repress them. Once you express your opinions you will feel better and happy, even if those opinions may not please most people, but do you think Joan really cares what others think?
Ahhhhhh, if I could be more like my Joan.
A++. One of the funniest books I have read!
I bought this yesterday and started reading last night. It is so damn funny that I couldn't stop reading and read more than half of it in one sitting. If you are a Joan fan you have to buy this. I could hear her voice in my head while reading and was laughing so hard that I had to take moments to compose myself and stop my tears before reading more. Hoping to finish it today. If you are remotely snarky you'll love every page and relate to all the things Joan hates.
The chapters categorize different targets of her hatred, including old people, death, world locations, children and table manners. The chapters dealing with children and the elderly had me laughing especially hard, because once you've worked in retail for a year and a half like I have, you come to appreciate her brutal honesty. Joan is unashamed to express her displeasure with graphic language (which will indeed offend the faint of heart, so take heed), and I appreciate such words as the flavors of conversation. The shorter chapters made this book an easy read, not because of simple content, but because I never once found myself bored with it. This book is styled very similarly to Joan's comedy routines: before you've had time to catch your breath from laughing at one joke, she's given you three more things to laugh at.
As I've said, this book is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for the over-sensitive readers out there. Joan says herself in the introduction that this piece of literature is not to be taken literally, but if you know that you're one who is easily bothered by off-color jokes, I wouldn't recommend it. For those who love wit, one-liners, and shocking humor, this book is a comedy gem.

Love her sense of humor and dark side of her jokes, very pleasant to read when my mood was a bit down.
In this book, Ms. Rivers takes aim at some familiar targets, such as “old people,” aging and funerals and even compares the groups of stroller-pushing mothers on Manhattan... Read morePublished 23 days ago by JustMike
