The fact that she did spiral down and hit bottom but still had the tenacity to get back up again, clean herself off and perservere gives hope to alot of people. It gives hope to substance abusers who want to clean themselves up but wonder if they can, teens that are getting picked on who admire Cho and also those out there who have eating disorders. Writers write for themselves because they love to write. Comedians perform because they love to make people laugh. It's nice to get a combination of the two. A terrific performer who wanted to share a bit more about herself.

This book is good but having watched many of her shows and caught her act in person, the book is 2nd best.

I recently saw Margaret in concert and went right out after and bought this book. This book, though edgy absolutely had me busting a gut. I loved it and highly recommend it.

I wanted to like this book.yet I found it to be rude and some stuff I found insensitive.For me this book was disapointing.

I could hardly put down this book. It was original, honest and thought provoking. Definitely one of the best autobiographies ever written. I love Margaret's writing and this book makes me feel like I know her as a friend.

YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!! Cho's life is one huge rollercoaster, from the hills to the valleys, from sea to shining sea. The stuff this woman put up with in her life makes you want to go out and take over the world. For anyone who's ever been through hell and back, this is the book for you!

Not only is Margaret Cho an incredibly talented comedian, she's also an amazing author. This book is fabulous! Her honesty and self-examination is really touching. Margaret's got an incredible way with words, who knew?

If you haven't had the good fortune to see the stage show or movie of the same name, this book makes an admirable substitute. It, like her standup, is laugh-out loud funny, heartbreaking, and brutally honest. The only thing missing is her hysterical impersonation of her mother's answering machine messages . . . but that's what the audio book would be for, huh?

I really loved this book, it made me cry. I could relate to it b/c when I was younger I had kids made fun of me too and like she says kids are very cruel but you don't realize that it has nothing to do with you until later on unless you are tougher mentally.

"Ashclan attack!!" Fangstar howls. (The roar of battle rings out through the half-burnt down forest.)
