Synopsis

"My tendency to make up stories and lie compulsively for the sake of my own amusement takes up a good portion of my day and provides me with a peace of mind not easily attainable in this economic climate."--Chelsea Handler, from Chapter 10 of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

It's no lie: Chelsea Handler loves to smoke out "dumbassness," the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers--they've all been tricked by Chelsea into believing stories of total foolishness and into behaving like total fools. Luckily, they've lived to tell the tales and, for the very first time, write about them.

Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me is, as you might expect, a quick and easy read. It’s the type of book readers will be able to follow on the bus or plane — or devour in one afternoon at the beach.

The book seems to lack real focus and direction. It offers a few giggle...but is nothing like what readers have come to expect in a Handler book.

Handler and her crew routinely curse, make rude gestures and insult one another. No subject is off limits...
