What do the lives of Lincoln, Helen Keller, Joan of Arc, and other historical figures have in common with Paula Poundstone? In the hands of this wryly observant and self-deprecating comedian, the answer is outrageously funny and unexpectedly touching. Poundstone compares her crazy life to theirs, as she holds forth on her children, her career, and the time in her life when it appeared she would lose them both. Now exonerated, Poundstone treats that stressful experience and the rest of her life—successes and failures—with remarkable wit and insight. There’s Nothing in This Book That I Meant To Say is self-awareness and honesty at its most hilarious.

    " I listened to the audio version of this just because I ran across it at the library. Little bits of it are very funny, but overall I'm not impressed. She goes off on these boring discussions of famous historical characters, then tries to somehow link them to her own life. It just doesn't fly. "

    " Didn't pass my 50-page Test. I gave it the old college try, it just wasn't very funny or informative, and she seems really bitter and upset and kind of miserable. Which isn't going to keep me turning the pages. "

    " Funny. I have never seen her perform but I saw her book, got into reading it at the store and it followed me home. I like the way she (comediana) weaves in biographies of others as her chapters--Joan of Arc and many others. Her humor is dry and hilarious! "

    " Funny, funny lady - I LOVE her humor! "
