New York Times Bestseller
From the co-creator and co-star of the hit series Broad City, a "poignant, funny, and beautifully unabashed" (Cheryl Strayed) bestselling essay collection about love, loss, work, comedy, and figuring out who you really are when you thought you already knew.
When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn't she going with friends? Wouldn't it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one... why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude, and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions-- What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood?
In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections--all told in the sharp, wildly funny, and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike--readers will feel like they're in the passenger seat on a fun and, ultimately, inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Abbi Jacobson’s I Might Regret This is one of the funniest, most relatable memoirs we’ve read lately, and it’s a surprisingly personal detour from the wild comedy of Broad City. After suffering her first broken heart, Jacobson impulsively embarks on a solo cross-country road trip, reflecting on her anxious tendencies, sexual identity, and rise to fame as the nation passes by. The comedian’s words and sketches throughout the book feel so intimate it’s as if she’s speaking directly to us. The end result is courageous, candid, and—not surprisingly—hilarious.

A new found love for Abbi Jacobson after reading this book.
I wanted to like it.....
But the book was so utterly random and trying so hard be funny that someone really needed to cut this off a long time ago. I was getting stressed out just reading all her crazy thoughts! And frankly I think she has a lot more to learn about herself ... wondering if she will look back at this awkward book and cringe.
Pedantic focus on self-centered minutia. About half way through the book I asked myself why I was reading it...and stopped.
