Publisher's Summary

You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool Enter Chelsea Handler. Gorgeous, sharp, and anything but shy, Chelsea loves men and lots of them. My Horizontal Life chronicles her romp through the different bedrooms of a variety of suitors, a no-holds-barred account of what can happen between a man and a sometimes very intoxicated, outgoing woman during one night of passion. From her short fling with a Vegas stripper to her even shorter dalliance with a well-endowed little person, from her uncomfortable tryst with a cruise ship performer to her misguided rebound with a man who likes to play leather dress-up, Chelsea recalls the highs and lows of her one-night stands with hilarious honesty. Encouraged by her motley collection of friends (aka: her partners in crime) but challenged by her family members (who at times find themselves a surprise part of the encounter), Chelsea hits bottom and bounces back, unafraid to share the gritty details. My Horizontal Life is one guilty pleasure you won't be ashamed to talk about in the morning.

Chelsea, You are HYSTERICAL!

Wow, what a witty and quick book this was! I found myself laughing so hard cappucino nearly came out my nose, as I listened and drove one night. Very, very funny book. Be prepared for straight talk about sex and a new interpretation of your sexuality.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

My Horizontal Life

Although not narrated by Chelsea herself, this book is witty and raunchy all at once! This book does not disapoint.

Hilarious!

I've been a huge fan of Chelsea Handler for a while, and was so excited to read this book. It really doesn't disappoint. One of those books you can read over and over again and still enjoy as much as you did the first time.

A wonderful collection of short stories

As the host of one America's favourite late night chat shows, Chelsea Handler is known for her quick wit and sharp comments. This book contains many embarrassing and cringe worthy stories told through handler's trademark wit.

This is a fantastic book!

one big beginning of a story with no end.

the stories are funny but it ends just as the real story begins. don't expect anything grand. it's a little funny but i wouldn't listen again.
