What made the experience of listening to Self-Inflicted Wounds the most enjoyable?
This is a woman accustomed to saying her own words out loud. Many writers suck at presenting their work orally. Not Aisha Tyler. It's her job. So her natural brilliance shines forth. You might not want to try to listen to the whole thing straight through, like on a long road trip. It's work that can bear thinking about in quiet. Listen to a bit of her story, then think about a bit about your own story, then repeat.
Who was your favorite character and why?
No favorite character, but favorite chapters. I believe they were chapters 22 & 23. A story then a right between the eyes point. Nice.
Have you listened to any of Aisha Tyler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Just mainly on Archer. Like apples and oranges. But she's good in both.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The part about failing at comedy then getting back up and doing it again - and again - and again. The point isn't the failing, it's the getting back up. And you can't get back up unless you need to get back up - unless you fail.

Where does Self-Inflicted Wounds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is the closest thing to a "Bossypants" equivalent in 2013. Brilliantly written and narrated, this is not only good for a "comedy book", but great altogether.
What about Aisha Tyler’s performance did you like?
Ms. Tyler is having a wonderful conversation with the reader. Her narration seems effortless, and yet supremely polished. She makes funny look easy, which is one of the hardest things to do.
