I kinda liked her on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart but I fell madly in love with her within the first couple chapters. She's hilarious in a sarcastic and unique way. A little drier than Tina Fey or (for sure) Mindy Kaling, but never in a depressing or boring way, at least to me. I found this much funnier than Amy Poehler's book (don't get me wrong, I really adore her too, it's just a frame of reference to know what to expect!). There is a lot of adult material (it's PG-13, at least) and I generally have only a moderate tolerance for all that, since I often find real raunchiness a little off-putting or kind of disturbing. However, the way she handles grown-up topics is entirely inoffensive, original, and very funny. This book is written a little more like a stand-up routine (like Ellen's) than a memoir (like Amy Poehler's, and Craig Ferguson's is really great, too). I'm on my third listen right now and hoping she writes another book soon!

This book is so GD funny. I've listened to it twice, and both times I nearly had to pull off the side of the road because I was laughing so hard. Samantha tells the story of her twisted upbringing so well. The contrasts between her parental figures is just a recipe for hilarity. I loved this book and have recommended it to all of my friends. And truth be told, I peed a little during the last chapter, I was laughing so hard.
