NOW WITH NEW MATERIAL FOR THE PAPERBACK EDITION

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” —Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1850

“How do I hate thee? How much time do you have?” —Joan Rivers, today, about two-ish

Joan Rivers, comedienne, actress, jewelry monger, and an award-winning international star (she can sneer in eight different languages) lives by the 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 decrepitude around her, she figured, “Why stop here when there are so many other things to hate?” With all of her 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.

This is absolute Joan Rivers. You gotta love her. Even if she hates you.

Includes new material!

Review:

"'I hate the slogans in cheaper restaurants, like ‘have it your way.' My way would be in a better restaurant where the tables and chairs aren't chained to the floor.' The ineffable Joan Rivers does, indeed, hate everything, and this hilarious account details all the reasons why. In this audio edition, Rivers proves very quickly that age has nothing on her and that she hasn't lost even a half step as a performer. Her delivery is perfect, her comedic timing as strong as it's ever been, and she reads with all the passion and inspired vision of her live performances. It's easy to listen to Rivers ramble on about everything that pisses her off, because more often than not — despite her star status — most people will likely agree with everything she says. Be it her hatred of cities where people are nice or her loathing of the Happy Meal, Rivers is equally passionate and opinionated on every subject she discusses. Hilarious and undeniably original.
