"Joan Rivers, comedienne, actress, jewelry monger, lives by the golden rule: Do unto others before they do unto you--and for God's sakes, do it funny! During the past two hundred years Joan has gained acclaim as an award-winning entertainment goddess. Joan is an international star (she can sneer in eight different languages) having performed all over the world, raising eyebrows, dropping names, and getting laughs. Her career in comedy began with a fantastic sense of self-loathing, but, after spending a couple of years looking at the human decrepitude around her, she figured, "Why stop here when there are so many other things to hate?" Here--uncensored and totally uninhibited--Joan says "F.U. to P.C." and says exactly what's on her mind...And HER mind is a terrible thing to waste. She proudly kicks the crap out of ugly children, dating rituals, funerals, and lousy restaurants. She nails First Ladies, closet cases, and hypocrites to the wall. She shows no mercy towards doctors, feminists, and historical figures. She even goes after Anne Frank, Stephen Hawking, and the plucky handicapped. Joan lets everyone--including herself--have it in this one hundred percent honest and unabashedly hilarious love letter to the hater in all of us. This is absolute Joan Rivers. You gotta love her. Even if she hates you"--

If you 'get' Joan's humour, you'll get some great laughs from this book. She attacks everything PC with humour, and while she's sometimes crude, nothing as bad as a lot of male comedians. @alimarie, she's not "angry", that's just her style of humour, and if you don't get it, you don't get it. A quick read with some big chuckles.
