A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect. "I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!"--Anna Kendrick. Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood's most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick's essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

Oscar nominee, Anna Kendrick, is also an engaging and funny memoirist and narrator. Her neurotic musings ring true and her anecdotes reveal a glimpse of life in the world of theater and movie making. In this audio book her delivery is hilarious; she might not be as entertaining on the written page. Some listeners may not be comfortable with her experiences and language.

Pretty good. Nice to be reminded that famous people don't just pop out of nowhere.

One of my favorite actresses wrote a very funny book, and she does a great job of reading it as an audiobook.

Are the PDFs mentioned in the audio book available somewhere?

Kendrick is an excellent reader, which made the whole book very entertaining. Despite the age difference between the author and me, I could relate to descriptions about her early relationships and her lack of confidence.

But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.

…all you need to be a writer is perseverance, a low-level alcohol dependency, and a questionable moral compass.
