I'm Fine...and Other Lies Read Online Free - Well, well, well. Look at you, ogling my book page. . . . I presume if you're reading this it means you either need more encouragement to buy it, you're very bored in an airport, or we used to date and you're trying to figure out if you should sue me or not.
Here are all the stories and mistakes I've made that were way too embarrassing to tell on stage in front of an actual audience; but thanks to not-so-modern technology, you can read about them here so I don't have to risk having your judgmental eye contact crush my self-esteem. This book contains some delicious schadenfreude in which I recall such humiliating debacles as breaking my shoulder while trying to impress a guy, coming very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison, and having my lacerated ear sewn back on by a deaf guy after losing it in a torrid love affair. In addition to hoarding mortifying situations that'll make you feel way better about your choices, I've also accumulated a lot of knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths, which can probably help you avoid making the same mistakes I've made. Think of this book as everything you'd want from the Internet all in one place, except without the constant distractions of ads, online shopping, and porn.
I'm not sure what else to say to say, except that you should buy it if you want to laugh and learn how to stop being crazy. If you're bored at an airport, I'm sorry and welcome to most days of my life on the road. And if we used to date, see you in court.

It inspired me to write a mammoth blog post that I'll cut up and put on my blog later...
For now: I often enjoy the prospect of comedian essay collections more than the reality, but this one was empowering/compelling af!
I related so much to her experience of throwing herself under a bu...

Highly enjoyed this!
I was wary of the last chapter, but it pulled through in the end.

I am impressed by Whitney Cummings. She is brazen about sharing the very fraught and painful experiences from her life. This was not a book about comedy or the entertainment industry or onset antics from her acting career... Whitney boldly shares some very personal, deeply arresting heartbreaking...

Hilarious as it is heartbreaking, but ultimately optimistic. Whitney Cummings shares the issues she's overcome in great detail and perfected wit. A great relatable read (or listen, since I grabbed the audiobook) that reminds us we are all humans dealing with our assorted anxieties. Good stuff!

Parts of it were amusing but it was mostly about her problems and I didn't sign up for that. I have my own problems.

I think Whitney did a really excellent job of writing a funny self-help book that covered relevant, relate-able topics, a lot of which were similar to things I've experienced. It's always nice in a bittersweet kind of way for me to hear that others have come a foundation of dysfunction - due to f...

It is really interesting to me how many insecurities are lurking behind the most confident people. This was a fab autobiography and I appreciate Whitney's candour when discussing her relationships, her body struggles and her viewpoint of the world. A bigger fan of her now because of this...

I loved the show Whitney, finding Cummings to be hilarious. When I found out she was also a co-creator of 2 Broke Girls, I knew I liked her.
I was really excited when I heard she was coming out with a book. I was hoping to laugh like I did while reading Jenny Lawson's Furiously Happy. The first c...

Wow... Whitney goes deep with this one! I wasn't sure what to expect, but this book was different than any other celebrity memoir that I've listened to. Yep, listened. Audio is the way to go with celebrity memoirs, especially when they narrate themselves. Whitney did a phenomenal job and was comp...

3.5 stars and not what I was expecting at all (in a good way). It’s not “this is the story of my life from birth to now”, it’s “here’s how I have struggled with all of these things all my life but I got help and I hope you can too”. With jokes, of course.
