    Genuinely enjoyable

    I really, genuinely enjoyed Amy Schumer's book. I'm not too familiar with her other work (I saw and liked Trainwreck, I've seen several of her sketches), but I knew enough about her to be interested in checking out her book, and I'm so glad I did. She had me wheeze-laughing by the second chapter ("Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)"), and feeling like I'd been emotionally punched in the gut in several others. Schumer manages to weave just the right amount of humor into incredibly serious and truly devastating topics (domestic abuse, a woman's sense of self worth, gun violence in America), getting her message across without being too heavy handed or disrespectful of the issue at hand. She lays herself bare in so many ways, celebrating her vulnerability and inviting you to do the same. I was truly inspired, and I laughed a lot. A perfect book to give young people, especially young women. I respect the hell out of you, Amy Schumer!

    Unfiltered

    I adore Amy Schumer! This book gave me the biggest crush for her. She's so blunt and free with letting all the good and bad show. And when you see it all, you see she's a good person. She's just human. She's appreciative of the position she's in and ready to point out the blessings and silliness of her life. She owns the parts of her that could be considered faults or embarrassing. She also acknowledges her worth. Of course this book is funny, but it has some pretty special heart moments as well. I will definitely be looking for more to watch and read coming from her going forward. Also, I just wanted to add that I love how she added the section on Lafayette. That is the theater my kids and I have used for most of our movie watching so it really hit home. I can tell how affected she is by what happened.

    Loved the whole darn thing

    To be honest, i havent seen her show or movie, just a few stand up specials. so i started this book completely unbiased. i have to say how pleasently surprised i am with how much i loved this book. its soo real and relatable. i saw so many of my own personal experiences reflect in this book. perfect blend of funny and serious. i laughed and cried during different chapters. Amy is so inspiring to women, to stand up for yourself and know your value. and of course, how to laugh and embrace your own flaws. kudos to you Amy. thank you for reminding us that we're not alone.

    An idol

    I was a huge fan of Amy's prior to reading her book (obviously, thats why I bought the book.) This novel was amazing. She truly let us see into her life. I am a much bigger fan of hers now and she is one of my idols. She stands up for her beliefs. She is a very strong woman, who hasn't always had it easy. Everytime she fell down, she picked herself up and never gave up. If you want to read a book on a strong woman in todays society. This would be a great one. There were parts that I can relate to in this book and it felt great knowing I'm not the only one. It was an awesome read.
