Publisher Description

In this instant New York Times bestseller that’s “boldly funny without being anti-mom” (In Touch), comedian and Chelsea Lately regular Jen Kirkman champions every woman’s right to follow her own path—even if that means being “childfree by choice.”

In her debut memoir, actress and comedian Jen Kirkman delves into her off-camera life with the same snarky sensitivity and oddball humor she brings to her sold-out standup shows and the Chelsea Lately roundtable, where she is a writer and regular performer. As a woman of a certain age who has no desire to start a family, Jen often finds herself confronted (by friends, family, and total strangers) about her decision to be “childfree by choice.I Can Barely Take Care of Myself offers honest and hilarious responses to questions like “Who will take care of you when you get old?” (Servants!) and a peek into the psyche—and weird and wonderful life—of a woman who has always marched to the beat of a different drummer and is pretty sure she’s not gonna change her mind, but thanks for your concern.

KelleyOH ,

Loved it!

I thought this book was hilarious. I'm at the age that many people are asking when I'll have children. I wish I could give a copy of this book to everyone that asks me that.

If you don't have a sense of humor then this one probably isn't for you.

oye vey

had an extra audible credit to burn so i decided to download her audiobook after immensely enjoying her collaboration with todd glass on his podcast. unfortunately, the material here is mundane and rather dull. narcissistic defensiveness of embracing the "me" attitude where swilling vodka and perpetuating life-long solitude seem to be the ultimately, yet inadvertant, goal. pretty depressing and boring stuff here. sorry. wanted to enjoy, but cringed most of the way through.

All Thumbs Up!

I'm a married guy with kids and I still enjoyed every bit of this book. So, it's for everyone is the point I'm getting at
