In her book Self-Inflicted Wounds, comedian, actress, and cohost of CBSA??s daytime hit show The Talk, Aisha Tyler recounts a series of epic mistakes and hilarious stories of crushing personal humiliation, and the personal insights and authentic wisdom she gathered along the way. The essays in Self-Inflicted Wounds are refreshingly and sometimes brutally honest, surprising, and laugh-out-loud funny, vividly translating the brand of humor Tyler has cultivated through her successful standup career, as well as the strong voice and unique point of view she expresses on her taste-making comedy podcast Girl on Guy. Riotous, revealing, and wonderfully relatable, Aisha TylerA??s Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation is about the power of calamity to shape life, learning, and success.

"If you've ever done something supremely boneheaded--such as setting your own house on fire--or self-defeating--such as sleeping through your SATs--then you'll identify with the author's tales of her own life. Tyler is now a celebrity and comedian who can afford to make fun of herself because she gets paid to do it. She delivers her own words as you would expect a working comic and actress to do. She has the self-assured rhythm and vocal range necessary to tell jokes and actually make them funny; she even pauses occasionally so we can laugh. There are times when she reads too fast and drops her words at the ends of sentences, but these are minor issues in a book whose message is to embrace, and learn from, failure. R.I.G.
