Alyssa Mastromonaco is back with a bold, no-nonsense, and no-holds-barred 21st-century girl's guide to life, tackling the highs and lows of bodies, politics, relationships, moms, education, life on the internet, and pop culture. Whether discussing Barbra Streisand or The Bachelor , working in the West Wing or working on finding a wing woman, Alyssa leaves no stone unturned The actress, comedian, media darling, and New York Times best-selling author picks up where she left off in Ali in Wonderland , dissecting modern life - and this time, on a mission of self-improvement - in a series of laugh-out-loud comic vignettes.
Moved by a particularly inspirational tweet one day, Ali Wentworth resolves to live by the pithy maxims she discovers in her feeds. What begins as a sort of self-help project quickly turns into something far grander - and increasingly funnier - as the tweets she once viewed with irony become filled with increasing metaphysical importance. And thus begins her "Unhappiness Project". It's not long before Ali expands her self-improvement quest to include parenting, relationship, fitness or lack thereof , and dieting advice. The results are painfully at times literally clear: when it comes to self-help, sometimes you should leave it to the professionals.
At once endearing and hilarious, thoughtful and absurd, Happily Ali After is a thoroughly entertaining collection from "the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything" Huffington Post. It was hilarious, and I could completely relate to Ali. Happily Ali After, published three years after Ali in Wonderland, contains more stories about married life and raising two children. Although I still chuckled at times, the effect was completely different for me, as I am single and childless and likely to spend the rest of my life this way until I eventually meet an untimely death completely alone.
But I digress.

This is going to be a painfully short blurb because I really have nothing more to say about it. I have never listened to a funnier audio book! Ali Wentworth is hilarious. I have enjoyed her sense of humor for years. Very happy I bought this book! I want to read everything she's written!! Funny, witty, real and wise. Ali is my new favorite celebrity.
People who bought this also bought...
I didn't really have one before but you know what I'm saying. Maybe I've been living under a rock, but I had no idea who Ali Wentworth is.
So, I googled her and after reading about the many hats she has worn and things she is known for, she will forever be "Schmoopie" to me. She is funny throughout this book and I loved her stories and antidotes. However, what I loved most was her honesty about her insecurities and her faults regarding life in general, beauty, jealousy, marriage, and being a parent.
I can totally see myself hanging out with her - no plan, just hanging out - and having the best time. It turns out that this is not her first book and I will likely pick that one up too. She's a great story teller and if you like her personality, you'll find her 24 stories told in 24 chapters entertaining, laugh out loud funny, thoughtful and endearing. Being a bit younger than the author "give or take a few decades", I realized by the end of the book that I should cherish my youth and attempt to age gracefully like Ali.
I gave this 5 stars because I could listen to it again when I need something light, funny and upbeat. It was good as a aleep aid.
Happily Ali After: And Other Fairly True Tales ( books on audio ) : f…
I wanted to finish what I started but after awhile it was just too painful. The sample clip was perhaps the best segment of the entire book. It's hard for me to separate out how the performer did. Oh right, just realized it was read by the author - well there you have it! All that said there were some really real moments of human-ness, like forgetting to update the kids passports and not finding out until at the airport gate!
I chuckled a time or two, but after listening to the sample I guess I just expected so much more. I gave an extra star for Ali's willingness to be so open and vulnerable. However, even with her vulnerability her life stories appeared superfluous. Perhaps there was a deeper meaning to it all revealed closer to the end Relatable and fun listen. I had no idea what to expect so it was a delicious surprise. I plan to listen to Ali's first book next. Couldn't finish this one. Book had funny bits, but author's voice was unappealing.
