WHAT . . . A RIOT!
Life doesn''t get more hilarious than when Chelsea Handler takes aim with her irreverent wit. Who else would send all-staff emails to smoke out the dumbest people on her show? Now, in this new collection of original essays, the #1 bestselling author ofAre You There, Vodka? It''s Me, Chelseadelivers one laugh-out-loud moment after another as she sets her sights on the ridiculous side of childhood, adulthood, and daughterhood.

Family moments are fair game, whether it''s writing a report on Reaganomics to earn a Cabbage Patch doll, or teaching her father social graces by ordering him to stay indoors. It''s open season on her love life, from playing a prank on her boyfriend (using a ravioli, a fake autopsy, and the Santa Monica pier) to adopting a dog so she can snuggle with someone who doesn''t talk. And everyone better duck for cover when her beach vacation turns into matchmaking gone wild. Outrageously funny and deliciously wicked, CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG is good good good good!

CHELSEA HANDLER ON...

Being unpopular: "My parents couldn''t have been more unreasonable when it came to fads or clothes that weren''t purchased at a pharmacy."

Living with her boyfriend:"He''s similar to a large toddler, the only difference being he doesn''t cry when he wakes up."

Appreciating her brother:"He''s a certified public accountant, andIhave a real life."

Arm-wrestling a maid of honor:"It wasn''t her strength that intimidated me. It was the starry way her eyes focused on me, like Mike Tyson getting ready to feed."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyed It It was a good book, but I felt like some parts of it were rambled. It's still a good read which I read in an evening. She is always funny.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as her first two. It felt to me as though Chelsea just needed something quick and easy to publish. It simply isn't a good book. It feels empty and it isn't witty as you would hope Chelsea's work to be. I am a Chelsea Handler fan and I won't let this flop deter me from reading her next book but the bottom line for this one, is that you are better off borrowing it from the library.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hilarious and trite I'm a huge fan of the E! network's "Chelsea lately" show. The book is classic Chelsea. It had its laugh out loud (literally!) moments, and its "you can't be serious" moments. I did enjoy this book. It was light, easy, quick, fluff. I feel like if I believed everything I read in that book, then Chelsea probably pulled one over on me ~ but I was entertained.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outrageously funny and deliciously wicked. Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is a collection of extremely funny personal stories and essays from Chelsea Handler, a comedienne and host of Chelsea, Lately on E! Her trademark dry humor is clearly expressed on the page as she details playing pranks on her friends, insulting her loved ones, and making fun of both herself and her family. The subject material here is definitely not appropriate for a younger audience; the first chapter titled "The Feeling" describes how Chelsea discovered masturbation when she was in the 3rd grade. To be honest, at times it’s incredibly vulgar… but I just found those bits really funny. This was my first time reading one of her books and I look forward to reading her other two.

About the Book

The hilarious new book from the star of Chelsea Lately and the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea .
Get ready for big laughs as Chelsea Handler lets loose with more comic personal essays. In this new, no-holds-barred account of life on the ridiculous side, Chelsea mines the wealth of material that is her family, her sex life, her career, and her distinctively outrageous worldview. Here is young Chelsea discovering "The Feeling" during a third-grade sleepover and getting shafted by clueless parents over Cabbage Patch dolls...and grown-up Chelsea at the mercy of the remote control, Lean Pockets, and Sex and the City --but still managing to convince her boyfriend that there are Swiss Army knives in the soles of her $16,000 shoes. Through it all, Chelsea never lets anyone off the hook, even herself, as she delivers page after page of irrevent humor, biting wit, and deliciously off-kilter entertainment.
