Reviews

"Jenny made me laugh so hard I feared for my safety! I think that's how she was able to get past my defenses and make me feel more okay about myself." --Allie Brosh, author of Hyperbole and a Half

"You'll laugh, wince, writhe in discomfort, cry, then laugh again. You might even feel the need to buy a raccoon. But the two things you'll never do is doubt Jenny's brilliance or her fearlessness when it comes to having honest discussions about mental illness, shame, and the power of human resilience. She's changing the conversation one rented sloth at a time." --BrenΓ© Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, Daring Greatly

"I freaked strangers out by snort-laughing on the subway and in restaurants. I can't stop talking about this book to friends. I'll shut up now and let you resume your life but buy this book. It's AMAZING." --Paul Fischer, author of A Kim Jong-Il Production

"The Bloggess writes stuff that actually is laugh-out-loud, but you know that really you shouldn't be laughing and probably you'll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn't read it. That would be safer and wiser." --Neil Gaiman

"Even when I was funny, I wasn't this funny." --Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors and This Is How

"Lawson's self-deprecating humor is not only gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate; it allows her to speak...in a real and raw way." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"[Lawson] writes with a rambling irreverence that makes you wish she were your best friend." --Entertainment Weekly

"Take one part David Sedaris and two parts Chelsea Handler and you'll have some inkling of the cockeyed humor of Jenny Lawson...[She] flaunts the sort of fearless comedic chops that will make you spurt Diet Coke through your nose." --Parade
