About the Author

Comedienne, Emmy Award-winning TV host, Tony-nominated actress and CEO, Joan Rivers was an icon of American culture, a bestselling author, Celebrity Apprentice winner, writer, producer, director, and savvy businesswoman who overcame great odds to reinvent herself time and time again. She hosted E! Network's popular series Fashion Police, and starred with her daughter, Melissa, in their own weekly reality show, Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best? on WEtv Network. Her critically acclaimed documentary, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work premiered in theaters nationwide and is available on DVD. Amongst all of her success, Joan's most joyous triumph was being a mother and grandmother. She died in 2014.

Reviews

"I hate the slogans in cheaper restaurants, like 'have it your way.' My way would be in a better restaurant where the tables and chairs aren't chained to the floor." The ineffable Joan Rivers does, indeed, hate everything, and this hilarious account details all the reasons why. In this audio edition, Rivers proves very quickly that age has nothing on her and that she hasn't lost even a half step as a performer. Her delivery is perfect, her comedic timing as strong as it's ever been, and she reads with all the passion and inspired vision of her live performances. It's easy to listen to Rivers ramble on about everything that pisses her off, because more often than not-despite her star status-most people will likely agree with everything she says. Be it her hatred of cities where people are nice or her loathing of the Happy Meal, Rivers is equally passionate and opinionated on every subject she discusses. Hilarious and undeniably original. A Berkley hardcover. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Rivers is back with her trademark raunchy humor. This time she muses on the people and things that she hates, which listeners soon understand includes just about everything. From babies to the elderly, no one is immune, including Jesus and Anne Frank. Hilarious in one sentence and shocking in the next, the dialog is definitely R-rated. Rivers herself narrates in her stand-up routine fashion, placing appropriate vitriolic emphasis every time she begins a sentence with, "I hate." VERDICT This is not for the easily offended, but fans of Rivers and caustic humor will enjoy it.-Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama Lib., Florence (c) Copyright 2012.
