I HATE EVERYONE... STARTING WITH ME is a blunt instrument of comedy, with hammer and knife suitable for cutting and crushing. One thing Joan was not is subtle. If you were depressed, Joan "hated" you. If you were angry, would you like a refill on that vodka zinger? Since humor is in the ear of the belistener, I can't tell you whether you'll love or hate this. By now you probably know into which category you fit. She has always been funny, and that's what great comedians do. They make you laugh at yourself...or in her own case, herself too. She will be missed. Be sure to listen to her new (and last) book too: DIARY OF A MAD DIVA, which she reads herself as well...it's the ONLY way to "read" the book of a comedian, because you just don't get comedic timing in print.
