“Whitney Cummings has written a book about being, well, not fine—and what to do when you find yourself with brutal anxiety and a co-dependency disorder; all in her trademark wit, humor, and honesty. This book, however, is fine as hell.”—Sophia Amoruso, author of #Girlboss “The funniest cry for help you'll read this year.”—BJ Novak Well, well, well. Look at you, ogling my book page....I presume if you’re reading this it means you either need more encouragement to buy it or we used to date and you’re trying to figure out if you should sue me or not.   Here are all the stories and mistakes I’ve made that were way too embarrassing to tell on stage in front of an actual audience; but thanks to not-so-modern technology, you can read about them here so I don’t have to risk having your judgmental eye contact crush my self-esteem. This book contains some delicious schadenfreude in which I recall such humiliating debacles as breaking my shoulder while trying to impress a guy, coming very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison, and having my lacerated ear sewn back on by a deaf guy after losing it in a torrid love affair. In addition to hoarding mortifying situations that’ll make you feel way better about your choices, I’ve also accumulated a lot of knowledge from therapists, psychotherapists, and psychopaths, which can probably help you avoid making the same mistakes I’ve made. Think of this book as everything you’d want from the Internet all in one place, except without the constant distractions of ads, online shopping, and porn.   I’m not sure what else to say to say, except that you should buy it if you want to laugh and learn how to stop being crazy. And if we used to date, see you in court.

All hail the arrival of Whitney Cummings as a truly hilarious, keenly insightful and endlessly entertaining author. This book made me laugh so hard that sometimes I had to stop reading and dry my eyes. Do not drink fluids while reading this book. They will only shoot out of your unsuspecting nostrils. Buy three copies because you'll want to gift a couple. It's that good. It's official: Whitney Cummings can write her ass off. Denis Leary
“A zippy, unabashed narrative confronting personal adversity with an equal mix of humor and sincerity...[I’m Fine...And Other Lies is] an extremely self-deprecating assault on a laundry list of proclivities, insecurities, and intimate fears many readers will easily relate to...Akin to the inner-critical narrative voice of Amy Schumer, Cummings’ observations expectedly tackle the uncomfortable and the embarrassing...with deflective humor and straight-up honesty, humility, and a keen sense of humanity. Kirkus Reviews
