Rest in peace, you funny bitch. :(

This book made me laugh and what better lady to help you look like a blow up sex doll than Joan Rivers herself?

Love you and miss you dearly, Joan.

4.0 out of 5 stars We CAN Tawk! 26 Jan. 2009
By Kimberly R. Stagliano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book on Saturday at Joan's signing at the Bank Street Book Nook in New Milford, CT. If she can fill a bookstore to bursting in the middle of CT, you KNOW she has a great book!

I'm not a fan of cosmetic surgery (today...) But I have to say - I can NOT discern Joan Rivers' age from standing 2 feet away from her. She looks wonderful. And she is gracious and cordial (I had my autistic daughter with me and we were having a moment....)

I mean, who the heck is the average woman going to ask about these procedures? The book lays out everything a woman of a "Certain Age" needs and wants to know and adds Joan's trademark humor. What more could you ask for (except a pocket full of cash to afford the work!)

Now I'm off to read Murder at The Academy Awards.

4.0 out of 5 stars PRESCRIPTION FOR LAUGHTER. NO REFILLS REQUIRED 2 Feb. 2009
By Alan W. Petrucelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This Rivers is once again overflowing with wit, wisdom and wisecracks. "Men are Stupid . . ." is a fun (and fact-filled) excursion into the semi-conscious world of nips and tucks by a woman who's been so surgically streamlined that her belly-button . . . ok, we'll leave the jokes to her. She'll hold your hand when it comes to physician picking, lip plumping, mole removal, wrinkle filling . . . as self-effacing as it is ego-centric, Men are Stupid won't leave you in stitches, but it will bring a pre (and post) operative smile to your (new) face

4.0 out of 5 stars funny but informative 27 Aug. 2009
By A. White - Published on Amazon.com

I'm not too far into the book, but it's typical joan rivers. She openly discusses her plastic surgery and the reasons behind it, with no reservations. It's very much like her monologues, and easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars World's Most Famous Plastic Surgery Patient Tells All! 20 May 2009
By Tiger Lily - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great book that discusses all the plastic surgery procedures you could dream of and some that will really surprise you. I'm interested in how Joan keeps looking great at age 75. She tells you what she did, when and names some plastic surgeons. She covers the face and the body and tells what to look out for and what can go wrong. The big thing is choose your doctor very carefully.

I'm glad that Joan's talking because too many stars keep their procedures hidden. I've had an upper & lower eyelift, chin implant, mini facelift, liposuction, botox, restaylane, and cheek implants. My nephew said last week that he couldn't believe I'm 2 years older than his father when I look so much younger. LOL

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought this audiobook by accident... 28 Sept. 2011
By logic fan - Published on Amazon.com
Confession: I have very little interest in plastic surgery. I bought this audiobook by accident...at the Borders going out of business sale. I was in a hurry, grabbing things quickly, and since it was by Joan Rivers, I assumed it was a comedy CD. Boy, was I wrong! Although she has some funny lines, this is not primarily comedy.

If you are contemplating plastic surgery, I'd heartily recommend this. Otherwise don't buy it!

Joan is very open and honest about the pros and cons of plastic surgery. She can be harsh when discussing other celebrities (which some people may find offensive) but she is just as hard on herself. She is also lavish with praise when her opinion of others' surgery is positive. She is equally honest about what you can expect, what can go wrong, whether a procedure is painful and how painful, how long it takes to recover, how long it lasts.

This book is like getting the scoop from your best friend on what it's REALLY like.

I have to say that before listening to this CD, I was fairly indifferent to Joan Rivers as a comedian or as a person. After listening to it, I have a lot of respect for her candor. Also, I find it hard to believe that no man has ever told her she was pretty. I think she looks great. Not just "great for her age."
