3/5 stars (liked it)
I received a copy of this book through Quirk Books. I must admit that I did not really know who Carol Leifer was until I go the book. But even though I didn't know who she was I enjoyed her book. She tells her story of how she started out as a comic and all the things she did and people she met to get her to the success that she is today. Her book was filled with many great tips that can be used in any profession. Also she made me laugh several times. I loved the pictures of herself with celebrities throughout her career. Overall a fast read and enjoyable.
