By the actress, writer, and one of the funniest women on Twitter, an outrageous, hysterical memoir of acting on impulse, plotting elaborate hoaxes, and refusing to acknowledge boundaries in any form.
Jenny Mollen is an actress and writer living in Los Angeles. She is also a wife, married to a famous guy (which is annoying only because he gets free shit and she doesn't). She doesn't want much from life. Just to be loved - by everybody: her parents, her dogs, her ex-boyfriends, her ex-boyfriends' dogs, her husband, her husband's ex-girlfriends, her husband's ex-girlfriend's new boyfriends, etc. Some people might call that impulse crazy, but isn't "crazy" really just a word boring people use to describe fun people? (And Jenny is really, really fun, you guys!)
In this program, you'll find stories of Jenny at her most genuine, whether it's stalking her therapist (because he knows everything about her so shouldn't she get to know everything about him?); throwing a bachelorette party so bad that one of the guests is suspected dead; or answering the eternal question: Would your best friend blow your husband on a car ride to dinner if she didn't know you were hiding in the backseat?
I Like You Just the Way I Am is about not doing the right thing - about indulging your inner crazy person. It is Jenny when she's not trying to impress anyone or come across as a responsible, level-headed member of society. With any luck it will make you better acquainted with who you really are and what you really want. Which, let's be honest, is most likely someone else's email password.

Hmm...Why am I listening to a bio of Jenny Mollen?
I applaud Jenny for being willing to put her warts out there for all to see - and there are a lot - but are we really that interested? This is the story of an actress who never makes it, then realizes her true talent may lie in writing. Her greatest claim to fame seems to be marrying American Pie actor Jason Biggs. While Jenny's writing is amusing, it is extremely crude. This usually doesn't bother me, but much of it seems gratuitous. Not a bad book; just left me wondering why her life merits a biography, at least at this point.

Looking forward to the second book.
Overall, not bad for a first effort. It's really just a collection of her blog work in stories for Playboy. I honestly think her second book will be a better effort as long as she doesn't pull together a bunch stories and make them a collection. Look was a little too "short essay" for me.
