I'm Fine...and Other Lies Reviews

  • Sara Goldenberg

    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.

    Sorry. One of those people who hasn't heard of Whitney Cummings but am going to change that. Some of her stories made me laugh out loud. See that's how out of date I am. No LOL. A very fun read. Thank you PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE for sending me this delightful book.

  • Patti Kearney

    Too much angst, couldn't get past the first chapter.

  • Alexa Hansen

    I loved this book because I love Whitney Cummings. She's really one of the best comedians out there.

    I know Whitney Cummings from her tv show Whitney! And since I thought she was really funny, I started looking for her stand up bits. I don't love every one of them, because some made me uncomfortable but it was okay and I watched ALL of them! So when I saw she had written a book, I had to read it.

    Well the book was not what I expected. She talks about her life (and what a life! I don't think I have ever known anyone who had that many problems! physically and mentally!) in a 'humourous' way! It's

    Well the book was not what I expected. She talks about her life (and what a life! I don't think I have ever known anyone who had that many problems! physically and mentally!) in a 'humourous' way! It's not funny. It didn't make me laugh, but it was not dramatic and gloomy either.

    I liked it because she speaks to the reader, it's like she's telling you the story and not just narrating it. So you get to know how her mind works, how she evolved over the years. She spoke about body image, trust issues, and several other topics that most people 'struggle' with and I liked her take on them.

    But the chapter I loved the most, is the last one. I liked her critical thinking. More people should have this inner dialogue

    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!

  • Renee

    Whitney Cummings is an L.A. based comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director and although I'm not a fan of 2 Broke Girls, I really enjoyed this book which is a collection of well written and funny stories that are (like most funny stories) extremely embarrassing and often painful.

    Cummings writes with a great balance of humility and humor and I appreciate her honestly because what many writers don't realize is that avid readers can sniff out BS a mile away.

  • Amy

    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 stories about her journey to find herself. I was quite disturbed by much she suffered and in the end, very appreciative of her courage and intention to share that nothing and no one is perfect. She clea

    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 stories about her journey to find herself. I was quite disturbed by much she suffered and in the end, very appreciative of her courage and intention to share that nothing and no one is perfect. She clearly wants to debunk the assumptions we make about beautiful and famous people being different from normal people. This woman has walked through some fire... and really, haven't we all?

    I'm so conflicted over this book. What I do know for sure: Whitney Cummings wants us to believe she is convinced of her authority in every aspect of her life. She certainly feels empowered by her personal self-discovery. And she wants us all to feel better. Just like her. After finishing the audio book two days ago, I'm still unsure how to explain her explanations for the explanations doctors and probably WebMD or the Mayo Clinic website have given her for everything that hurts in her body and h

    I'm so conflicted over this book. What I do know for sure: Whitney Cummings wants us to believe she is convinced of her authority in every aspect of her life. She certainly feels empowered by her personal self-discovery. And she wants us all to feel better. Just like her. After finishing the audio book two days ago, I'm still unsure how to explain her explanations for the explanations doctors and probably WebMD or the Mayo Clinic website have given her for everything that hurts in her body and her brain. I'm glad she feels like she has it mostly figured out now. But reader be cautious. Please remember this is a memoir. This is not a self-help book. She is not a therapist or authority in treatment. Although, by chapter 4, I believed she believes she is. It's mildly amusing. I laughed once or twice. Mostly I felt like she self-deprecated just enough to make it seem like she wasn't trying to come off as an authority on self-help. But *wink-wink* she really wants you to be fine after you listen to her tell you how she's fine and you can be fine, too. According to her. Based on her. But I'm me. And she's not my therapist.
