How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1850

How do I hate thee? How much time do you have?

Joan Rivers, 2012

Joan Rivers is a groundbreaking, award-winning, internationally renowned entertainment goddess. She's also opinionated especially when it comes topeople she hates. Like people who think giving birth is a unique achievement. Or well-adjusted, a.k.a. boring, ex-child stars who don t even havea decent addiction.
With all of her diverse experiences, it stands to reason that Joan hasseen, done, said, and hearda lot of hateful things. Thank god, she took notes.

Here uncensored and totally uninhibited she gives the best of her worst to First Ladies, closet cases, hypocrites, Hollywood, feminists, and overratedhistorical figures. And even when letting herself have it, Joan doesn t hold back in this honest, unabashedly hilarious love letter to the hater in all of us.
