Angels, Vampires and Douche Bags by Carla Collins (Book Review 2010-85)

Product Description

In this candid confessional, comedian Carla Collins divides the world into the angels who guide us, inspire us, and save our butts; the sexy and trendy vampires who suck the life out of us; and the douche bags who constantly annoy, disgust and taunt us. With a fast wit, fake breasts and real heart, Collins shares her unconventional journey from a small steel town in Ontario, Canada to Tinseltown L.A. On this wild and revealing romp, she navigates her way through seventy-two imaginary friends, multiple fianc├ęs, eight dogs, two marriages, and one topless grandmother. Her hard-earned life lessons will show you that by taking risks, embracing humiliation and tapping into the power of laughter, anything is possible--and everyone is manageable. Attract more angels into your life, control your vampires, and keep all the douchebags at bay. Angels, Vampires and Douche Bags is original, edgy, uplifting and laugh-out-loud funny.

This is a super funny "self-help"/autobiography and I laughed almost the whole time I read this.  The author classifies people into three categories of angels, vampires and douche bags which is pretty self explanatory.  I think Collins really shines when she interweaves her personal history with these categories and the lessons from each type.  I was going to pick my favorite line, but there are just too many good one liners to list them all.  I would have to copy the whole book.

 The humor is just fabulous and I would love to see the author perform her stand up routine.  I did find a few clips on you tube which are easy to locate.  There are some adult moments there, so I don't feel comfortable posting them in this forum.  You need to buy several copies of this book since if you leave it out, it will disappear the next time a friend picks it up.  

Oh, and she rescues much better can it get?
