Description

A hilarious and emotional personal account of the life, times, mistakes, and crippling codependence of comedian, producer, director, actress, and writer Whitney Cummings.

After getting her start as a stand-up comic and then breaking out with the wildly successful CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls (she's the cocreator, writer, and executive producer), Whitney Cummings has seen a few things and is turning to the written word to tell us all the stuff she's too scared to say onstage.

Full of intellect, pathos, and profundity, I'm Fine...and Other Lies is, in Whitney's words, her first book, which means her last date. With her signature incendiary edge and self-deprecation, Whitney comes clean about what has shaped her into the trailblazing comic that she is today. She recounts her struggles with codependence, love addiction, workaholism, eating disorders, and vagina steaming. This intimate, no-holds-barred look at Whitney's mistakes and subsequent life lessons makes for juicy schadenfreude, no doubt. However, it's also an astute, poignant, and, most importantly, honest tale of what it means to live in today's world and Twittersphere, with all the insecurities and anxieties that come with that territory. That said, at end of the day, no matter her situation, she's fine. And other lies.

I've been waiting for this woman to write a book!

I've heard Whitney Cummings on podcasts and stand up talk hint and, at times, directly confront her winding road of research and self discovery.

Whitney goes all in with this book, delivering a vulnerable memoir of raw expression. She opens up about the trials most women go though, think about, and run from. She is refreshingly honest and sprinkles in enough humility and permission for you to know you're not alone in your own struggles.

Whitney occasionally takes recording off script and allows you to connect with her in that moment. There are times that she's so connected that you can hear her emotions come through in a way I've never seen on stage. While speaking up about her values and gender inequality for both men and women, Whitney also provides insight and examples of how hard those have been to change. She's also keenly aware of her potential bias in ways that are so wonderful and, she calls them out, encouraging us to also question what we *know* to be true.

If her goal was to bring honest, funny, encouraging words to women and men to be open, honest, and vulnerable to move us all forward... then she's done it. The rest is up to us to move forward and be, better. Love you, mean it.

Amazing

This book is exactly what I have been searching for in a self help book for years....authentic, knowledgeable and hilarious. I have learned so much and it has helped bring somethings to light in my own life. I highly recommend this book.

Wow, heard an interview on Howard Stern and decided to check out the book. Best book I've had the opportunity to listen to lately. I've already bought other copies to give to people for gifts.

Thank you! I am fine now :)

Such a great book full of great realistic advise. Whitney makes learning about the crazy things and her life a fun adventure. Part of the story I am surprised and want to find away to help the other half I am looking inside and learning thirds about myself. The great thing is I am laughing with her the whole book! Thank you!! I am going to be fine!

She's real

I really enjoyed listening to Whitney read this and the real emotion she had.

Plus it's nice to know we're all crazy on some level.

Amazing

Whitney makes a claim early on in the book that this book will “change your life” and she was right. This book talks about very powerful and insightful topics. I think there’s something everyone can relate to. It’s funny and inspiring and I loved it!

Lots of life lessons in here girls. Things you want to say but never do. A fun read or listen in rush hour traffic.

Can’t say enough amazing things about this book!!!

It was hilarious, yet real, raw, relatable (I promise I’m not trying to alliterate). I learned so much about myself and can apply so many of her lessons all over in my own life. Honestly, I just want to read it again and again.

We all have great stories to tell, and this book is one of those great stories. I also learned what a codependent is, definitely interesting. Awesome book!

Inspiringly funny

This person has a lot to say. Truth is hurtful, but if you have the courage and self-deprecation tendencies to share it with the world, you allow other people to heal with you, sometimes with laughter sometimes through tears. I appreciate your struggle to put it out there. Thank you.
