Audio Book Summary

From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein.

Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills!

Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next…to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-described…Idiot.

With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original—and undeniably relatable—new voice.

    I loved this book! As someone new to sobriety, hearing her story from the depths of her addiction to her years in recovery gave me a lot of hope and optimism about my own future in recovery. Plus she’s really funny.

    Absolutely wonderful and perfect! As the wife of a currently struggling alcoholic, this was a view into his world that helped me understand what he’s going through a little better. And Laura is just amazing!

    I didn't realise until the last few chapters that I have been watching Laura's Facebook videos for a few years now! I kept thinking "This girl is hilarious, how have I never heard of her?!" then she started talking about Steven and creating her own content and it all clicked. Her narration made me feel like I was listening to a friend share hilarious memories and I felt like I could relate easily to her story.

    Laura did a great job of both writing and narrating her book! Being in and out of recovery myself, I appreciated her honesty and courage in sharing her story! Some don't and won't understand, but someone out there (likely many) needed to hear her story to save their own lives, including myself! I am grateful to her and really loved listening to her book on my long drive to work everyday! I definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone, because I think no matter who you are you can relate to some aspect of her story! I love that she is unapologetically herself and walks in faith and courage instead of fear! Thank you Laura!
