Description

“An entertaining rant…The only thing missing is the sound of a drumroll and cymbals to feel as though one is sitting in a nightclub watching a live comedy marathon…A raucous, biting look at life.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Nobody, but nobody, can hate like Joan Rivers. It is a gift. It is also shocking, the things she makes us laugh at…Joan Rivers is extraordinary, but she's not for the easily offended—or for anyone who gets offended at all.”—People
 
Joan Rivers, comedienne, actress, jewelry monger, and an award-winning international star (she can sneer in eight different languages) lives by her own golden rule: Do unto others before they do unto you—and for God’s sakes, do it funny!  Her career in comedy may have begun with self-loathing, but, after looking at the human decrepitude around her, she figured Why stop here when there are so many other things to hate? With all of her diverse experiences, Joan has looked down at, turned away from, and thrown up over a lot of hateful things, deplorable places, and despicable people. Thank God she took notes.
 
Here—uncensored and uninhibited—Joan says exactly what’s on her mind…And HER mind is a terrible thing to waste.  She proudly kicks the crap out of ugly children, dating rituals, funerals, and lousy restaurants. She nails First Ladies, closet cases, and hypocrites to the wall. She shows no mercy towards doctors and feminists, and even goes after Anne Frank and Stephen Hawking.  Joan lets everyone—including herself—have it in this one hundred percent honest and unabashedly hilarious love letter to the hater in all of us.

    I never liked Joan rivers in the first place, especially when I found out she insulted Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal Lecter in silence of the lambs) but I thought I would try to read it. It was nice until she started making fun of depression and saying "let Jane slit her wrists at her own house". How (pardon my French) hellishly disgusting is that?!? Self harm and depression are NOT things to be making fun of and bashing like that. I can't believe this piece of trash managed to get published. I would give it zero stars if I could. Horrible, horrible book from a horrible, horrible person.

    Did not like this book. I love Joan Rivers on TV but found her book offensive and in bad taste. Found it hard to read

    Do you remember the days when we borrowed books from friends or the random collection of paperbacks at a vacation home? You don't expect much besides some breezy entertainment while away for the weekend. Nothing that you would actually pay (much) for. I read the free sample and laughed out loud. Thinking this was a good sign, I bought the book and hoped the comedic cadence would continue without missing a beat. It instead went down hill quickly. The book is nothing more than a laundry list, with the same joke told over and over again. I honestly think I finished it just to justify the $$ in vain. I won't make this mistake again.

    It took me months to try and get through this book and I couldn't even finish it. It's not comedy, it's someone whining and complaining about every little thing in life. I hear enough of that on the train in the morning, I don't need to waste my time reading about it.
  • Joan is too funny

    This book gave me a lot of laughs and surely was just plain off the wall with what she says in this book. I highly recommend it. Even though she makes fun of everyone she still makes fun of her self also.
  • I LOVE JOAN RIVERS

    It's rare that a book can make me laugh out loud, even once. This one had me howling all the way through. Thank God for Joan Rivers, she really gets it.

    Unfortunate and mean spirited. I was surprised at how tasteless this book was.
