Audio Book Summary

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

“I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!” —Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick’s autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick’s essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture..

    I loved this book. I found her story to be very relatable and honest. Her tone of voice and express makes each story and makes you feel apart of the madness. I would definitely recommend reading (or listening) her book.

    So disappointing. I could not listen to much. I've enjoyed Anna Kendrick's acting career very much, but her book seems to be "trying to hard" to be funny. I found it lacking taste.

    The most genuine and painfully honest book I've ever read, or listened to. I now believe Anna and I are either soulmates or very distantly related. She's so raw and real, it's both concerning and comforting. I say concerning because she is so open and being open can be scary especially for celebrities. I praise her all the more for it. I say comforting because I felt freed by my own crazy. It wants out. I hope to be more like Anna when I grow up. Full disclosure, I'm 28.

    Great memoir. Honest and spunky. I\'m a big fan of Anna\'s transparency and her narration made it fantastic. This was fun to listen to while traveling for work. Not too hard to pick up and have to put down.

    Awesome story, funny and relatable. We tend to as people to raise celebrities up onto a pedestal and forget that they are people just like ourselves. Having only known this actresses through her work starting with pitch perfect. It was interesting learning about the rise and struggles of having a career that when you do a good job everyone suddenly learns everything about you but yet the financial rewards are not as forthcoming.
