"This will be one of your favorite books of all time. Through her
intensely vulnerable, honest, and hilarious reflections Chelsea
shows us more than just her insides. She shows us
"You thought you knew Chelsea Handler--and she thought she knew herself--but in her new book, she discovers that true progress lies in the direction we haven't been." --Gloria Steinem
"The Chelsea Handler I know is a take-no-prisoners activist for the causes she believes in. She brings the same fearlessness and commitment to telling her truth in this book. I'm hoping that one day, in exchange for this blurb, she will let me see the security camera footage of the dog fight in her bedroom."--Trevor Noah "I always wondered what it would be like to watch Chelsea Handler in session with her therapist. Now I know."--Ellen DeGeneres "I love this book not just because it made me laugh or because I learned that I feel the same way about certain people in politics as Chelsea does. I love this book because I feel like I finally really got to know Chelsea Handler after all these years. Thank you for sharing, Chelsea!"--Tiffany Haddish "This is, of course, a roller coaster ride, since it's a Chelsea Handler book, but it's a thoughtful roller coaster ride, including not only dog poop and hallucinogenics, but a tour-de-force loop-the-loop through formative trauma and questions of how to be a grown-up and what it means to go deeper into your own life, and I'm sure I mentioned funny bits."--Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me "In this brutally truthful memoir, Chelsea Handler introduces us to the family, struggles, and triumphs that have shaped her life. Her story is both personal and highly relatable, especially for anyone who has ever wondered why we're on this earth and what we can do to change it for the better. This book is hilarious and heartbreaking; I could not put it down. Chelsea is the girlfriend you want to share your stories with and the woman you want with you on the front lines."--Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood and author of Make Trouble "I don't know of any other writer who could move from Robert Mueller to edibles to rescue dogs in a way that makes you laugh, cry, and ponder the meaning of life. Chelsea Handler's political awakening in the Trump Era serves as the hilariously insightful backdrop for Life With Be The Death of Me, a book in which she chronicles her own journey and our collective insanity with just the right mix of sincerity and snark."--Jon Favreau, co-host of Pod Save America
