I have to admit that I had never heard of Tiffany Haddish. I saw this book show up on a few must read lists, and then I saw her interview with Trevor Noah. The interview was hilarious, but also inspiring, which is when I knew I had to read this book.
I think the best way to sum up this book is both hilarious and inspiring. Haddish is very real in her book, acknowledging her struggles and even confessing her successes. She did not have the most glamorous childhood, and I could relate to her living with a relative with schizophrenia. I enjoyed that she talked about it in real terms, but also using her humorous outlook on life.
This book contains excessively foul language. I mean it is everywhere. There are also graphic descriptions of sex, and abuse. This is not a book for everyone. Yet, I loved this book. I loved how she talked about the not so glamorous parts of life, and I loved how she still approaches life with a sense of humor. There were so many times that she was knocked down (literally and figuratively), yet she managed to fulfill her dream without loosing herself.
