    Tiffany Haddish has been through a lot in her life. A very turbulent childhood didn?t very well prepare her to be the best decision-maker as an adult, yet she did preserve and become successful. I commend her hard work and tenacity, but, goddamn, she has an excessively filthy motherf...

    This is definitely worth reading. Haddish is incredibly funny, smart and observant. She has lived a hard life which makes her success all the more admirable and deserved. There are places where I wanted more depth. The book is short and reads fast, sometimes too fast. But the funny par...

    (Listened via Audibles)This book was okay. It had some funny parts, especially about her handicap boyfriend. I felt the author was trying too hard to be funny. I think I would have a different view if I read the book. Tiffany is true to her self; raunchy, vulgar, and full of life. ...

    I definitely recommend listening to The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. Firstly she's hysterical and can definitely tell a joke and/or a story. The memoir traces her life from her youth to current her success. Each story reveals something about her character and her growth into ...

    I love Tiffany Haddish! She seems like the kind of celebrity who would be very down to earth, and fun to be friends with. And she's had a helluva life. I identify with that in a big way. The whole time I was reading it, it was like listening to her tell the stories. She writes the way ...

    Tiffany Hadish memoir about her life is hilarious,inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time. I discovered her watching the movie Girls Trip, that movie had me laughing so hard. Usually I am not a fan of comedies but she is one of the rare people that I made an exception for. While t...

    I spent the whole time I listened to this audiobook thinking about how to explain why I didn't like it. Haddish is smart, hilarious, and has undeniable presence. I bought this because I saw her on with Trevor Noah and laughed until I cried. Haddish has a lot to say and quite a life sto...

    I LOVE Tiffany Haddish. So, I?m totally biased. I laughed so hard at this book but it also had a great heart to it. Tiffany has been through a lot in her life but she chooses to see the good and positive in it. Tiffany is a great storyteller so she could make a mundane story inter...

    I was nervous that a Tiffany Haddish book wouldn't feel like Tiffany Haddish, but happily no one has tried to change her. This book is so clearly 100% Tiffany, which is wise. If you've seen her on screen you would know if there was any attempt to dress her up or change her voice. A...

    "Growing roses out of poop" Other than reading, I really love comedy. Really great stand up can be an art form. I love to wallow in it from time to time. My top faves include Pryor and Murphy (old leather wearing Eddie Murphy) (though his brother Charlie Murphy is a fucking riot...

    If you read one inspirational book this year, let it be this one. Few people are intuitively aware that success has many facets. Most times, success is measured by how much money a person makes, the awards she wins, the accolades she amasses, or the powerful connections she command...

    Please Note: I DNF'd this book at about the 40% mark. I listened to the audiobook version. This book was terrible. First, it wasn't written well at all. The story was extremely choppy and rushed. There were quite a few recountings of very ugly things that occurred in Haddish's life, bu...

    This was a fast read. I knew very little of Tiffany Haddish and her difficult life until now....wow! This was a shocking honest memoir. She held very little back. This memoir was not all laughs and good times but shared lots of stories in a funny tone. She also shared some heart breaki...

    Tiffany Haddish is a funny person and a funny comedian, but this book was vastly disappointing. I listened to the audiobook, and I really expected a killer narration. Every single other audiobook autobiography of an actor/comedian that I've ever listened to was flawlessly narrat...

    Really, really funny?laugh-out-loud funny. Haddish has a way of turning the most appalling personal anecdotes into funny stories with inspiring finales. I will definitely look for her stand-up work and her movies. ...

    5 stars This book gets 5 stars because it made me LAUGH! Not just chuckle laugh while reading, I mean tears down my face I was dying kind of laugh. Tiffany Haddish is someone I only found out about because one of my Facebook friends shared a video of her. I haven't seen Girls Trip...

    Tiffany Haddish made me clutch my chest, crying from laughter, and only a few people can do that to me. She is hilarious. But that?s not all. She is strong. She was strong when she was a child, a teenager, and she is still strong today. I can?t even believe how much she wen...

    Indomitable spirit. Which historical figures come to mind when you hear that phrase? Mother Teresa? Gandhi, maybe? Those are two of the people who pop into my head right away. And now, whenever I hear those words, I will also think of Tiffany Haddish. I was late to the Haddis...

    I gave Tiffany Haddish's book 5 stars because I loved her realness about her life, struggles and trying to survive. This book had me laughing, mad, asking why and smiling. I hope that Tiffany life blooms into great success. She deserves it and so much more. Blessed! ...

    I think Tiffany Haddish is hilarious and beautiful and wonderful; however, this book is terrible. This might not be a popular opinion, but I thought this book was disgusting. Not just because she shits in a shoe (she does) but because as another reviewer noted, Haddish showed "such ...

    I haven't seen Girls Trip, The Carmichael Show, Keanu, or If Loving You is Wrong. Big surprise - I'm not a raucous-rude-comedy-appreciating viewer. Not that there's anything wrong with those who are, of course. I became a Haddish Fan Girl the first time I viewed the 5 -7 minute vid...

    It was an enjoyable read. I prefer to close with the following quote from Tiffany. ? I believe in God. And I believe I have purpose in life. I believe we all do. I believe you do, too. I believe my purpose is to bring joy to people, to make them laugh, and to share my story to help ...

    For me, the things that she had to go through are unimaginable; both the positive things and the negative things. Perhaps if I read them in a fiction book or a watched them in a movie, I would've said that can only happen in movies. it's an eye opener ...

    If you looked up the word Authentic on the internet, a giant picture of Tiffany Haddish should be next to it. A lot of people had never heard of Tiffany Haddish until her star making role in last years Girls Trip, but Tiffany has been on her grind for decades. Tiffany is an overnigh...

    Well. I do love Tiffany Haddish. I have been so happy to see how popular she has gotten and wish her nothing but success. That said, this memoir was lacking in a lot of ways for me. Parts of it were funny and parts just made me want to find her and give her a hug. This entire memoir is...

    So good it's not even funny. Well, actually, it is really, really funny. Listen to the audiobook if you can. I didn't know Tiffany Haddish's work before, but I try to listen to a variety of genres and this book had a great rating. I'm not surprised. This woman's story is inspiring ...

    4.5 sterren, rounded to 5! I can only applaud this beautiful soul who has found her voice and place of serenity in a life filled with such horrendous hurts and tides of pain felt in ripples to this day. There are some events that are so embarrassingly bizarre, I could not help but ...

    Tiffany Haddish is a one of a kind, strong, beautiful, hilarious woman. What she has gone through in her life has truly made her into what she is today, but it?s still heartbreaking that she had to go through it. The first half of her book was about her childhood, her family, her int...
