Comedian and activist Margaret Cho's righteous comic rage finds its targets with pinpoint accuracy and is meant not only to entertain but also to champion the civil liberties and raise awareness for the social injustices that are her impassioned causes, among them freedom of expression, gay rights, racial discrimination, and capital punishment. It is this blend of comedy and fervor that awakens the devotion of her legions of fans and permeates this book, her vehement, principled, and resoundingly funny political platform to shake us loose of the politics of disillusionment and get us through the years ahead.

I Have Chosen to Stay and Fight chronicles Cho's adventures and misadventures in political activism and lays out what's right in no uncertain terms. Download and start listening now!

    " Some good bits interspersed between rantings. Was expecting more from a book read by the author -- less recitation, I suppose, and more conversationalistic style. Do not read/listen to unless you are liberal or have an open mind about such things as most of the ranting is aimed at close-minded conservatives but does not seem to distinguish them from open-minded conservatives at all. This book was culled from the authors blogs, which I assume is why there is so much ranting and less story-telling. "

    " Blog-style ranting, not specifically good or bad. It is what it is. "

    " word vomit "

    " While I agree with some of her political views, reading this book is like reading a rant. It would probably be a lot more enjoyable in audio-book format. She has a lot of opinions but these are not well thought-out and researched arguments, and for me it doesn't work so well. It also feels really choppy. Still interesting stuff, and a rant about Ann Coulter is still amusing when read because I feel rants about Ann Coulter (anything negative, that is) are amusing in any form. "

    " Funny, but a little too far on the political side of things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 January Carroll | 1/4/2014

    " I loved this book and read it twice at work on CD. I was expecting it to be a comedic book because I know she's a stand-up comic, but I was wrong. This book has funny moments, but it mostly has a gloves-off look at life. I loved it. I found myself at my desk a couple of times with tears in my eyes. Everything she said about dieting and bellydance was absolutely right. And in some spots she was the voice of my outrage. "

    " Smart, funny, good light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/19/2013

    " So far, I like it, but it gets a little repetitive. I admire her writing and her using her celebrity for progressive causes, but her comedy is much better in person than written down. "

    " I love Margart Cho! The chapter/essay "Feminism is a feminist issue " is something EVERYONE should read!! "

    " I usually love Cho and I liked parts of this book, but it seriously was taken straight from her blog. There was no cohesion, but her take on politics, celebrity and everything in between is still biting and FUNNY "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 2/17/2013

    " Written in 2005, Cho writes about racism, sexism, politics, and having the strength to keep fighting. "

    " So funny!!! She goes off on some rants but overall so funny and truthful :) I love when she says the Oval Office should be called the Obtuse Office :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 6/20/2012

    " Margaret Cho's stream-of-conscious ramblings about racial and sexual orientation prejudices are passionate, but still just ramblings. She said she adapted the book from her blog; it would have been nice if she had worked a little harder at fleshing out an actual book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andreakuieck | 6/4/2012

    " Margaret Cho says all the right things as an enlightened human. I feel, after reading this, like I have been trapped in elevator with her for twelve hours. The pacing of this book is ALL RANT, there's no change of tone like EVER. Let me out! "

    " Definitely made me respect Margaret Cho even more. I like that this was less like a comedian's autobiography, and more like the love child of a comedian's autobiography and an activist's political theory. Totally up my alley! "

    " I love Margaret CHo, I really do. And I wanted to like this. It just didn't do much for me. "

    " I agree with Margaret Cho on the issues, but I also agree with some previous reviewers: this one is not as funny as she can be. "
