Oh my goodness, this is flat out the funniest thing I've ever read. Usually I don't so much as crack a smile when I read something funny, but this book had me laughing so hard I was crying--- my husband came in from the other room to find out what was wrong! Get your hands on this book and then save it for a day when you really need a pick-me-up.

There is one thing that all memoirs should have... redemption. Or at least be so funny that it doesn't matter. This fell so far from the mark of being a good memoir. It was just - sad. I would have loved to see her end up in rehab and maybe married to someone with no sexually transmitted diseases. It was like *giggle* a story *giggle* about this *giggle* little girl *giggle* in this grown up *giggle* body - that drank entirely too much (and *giggle* thought it was funny), would find the nearest guy and go screw - maybe if his penis wasn't too big or small or whatever other problems the author seemed to have. It wasn't even that funny. What a piece of junk. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

This book has a Wishlist here at PBS of over 500. So many people are going to be disappointed. I am human so I like sex just like the rest of the world. But the heavy drinking, use of esctasy, and actual Lack of sex in this book was disappointing. This is not some steamy blow by blow memoirs, but just a bunch of dumb stories about a lot of people she actually didnt connect with. It wasnt funny enough, although as some parts I did laugh. It was just sad about all the drugs,lying to men, booze and one night stands. She didnt learn anything or change. Go read a better memoir.

This was an easy enough read but I was a bit disappointed in the content. The book starts strong and gets weaker as it goes forward.

Well, it's no Tucker Max. I did enjoy the book, I can't lie. It's a quick and easy read. Unfortunately, unlike Tucker Max, I only laughed out loud maybe 3 or 4 times. So while it was good I spent more time wondering if she really had as much sex as she says because it seems like she passed out a lot more than actually did anyhing with the guys!

You will enjoy it, but read this first, before Tucker Max and then you won't be comparing it to him the whole time.
