Description


A hilarious audiobook about one woman's lifelong collection of wonderfully massive screwups

Have you ever made a decision you instantly regretted? Humiliated yourself in a room of your peers, or shamed yourself in front of your massive crush? Ever blown a job interview, frozen during a presentation, acted like a total idiot on a date? Ever said the wrong thing at the wrong time, unable to keep your tongue from flapping out the stupidest words you ve ever said in your life, ever? If you are a human being, the answer, of course, is yes. Take heart. You re not alone. This is known as the self-inflicted wound, and every one of us bears a scar. Or several.

Here, Aisha Tyler, comedian, actress, cohost of CBS "The Talk," star of "Archer," and creator of the top-ranked podcast "Girl on Guy," serves up a spectacular collection of her own self-inflicted wounds. From almost setting herself on fire, to vomiting on a boy she liked, to getting drunk and sleeping through the SATs, to going into crushing debt to pay for college and then throwing away her degree to become a comedian, Aisha's life has been a series of spectacularly epic fails. And she's got the scars to prove it. Literally.

Through it all, Aisha's triumphs haven t come in spite of the failures, but because of them. Because with every failure comes a lesson learned, a strength revealed, a fear overcome, or an adventure braved. "Self-Inflicted Wounds" isn t just about surviving failure. It's about embracing failure and pursuing it, even on the winding path to success. And after you ve failed a time or three, hopefully you ll have learned something. Or at the very least have a really killer story. Because to err is human, but to fail epically is hilarious.
