A 2020 Audie Award Finalist

From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein.

Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills!

Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next…to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-described…Idiot.

With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original—and undeniably relatable—new voice.

    I loved this book! As someone new to sobriety, hearing her story from the depths of her addiction to her years in recovery gave me a lot of hope and optimism about my own future in recovery. Plus she’s really funny.

    Absolutely great storytelling. Hilarious and genuine. I love her narration and delivery. I followed Laura on social media since she was pregnant with her 2nd child and have appreciated her humor and her willingness to share her journey in this life. After listening to this book, I could go back and listen again. I listened while working and caught myself laughing out loud seemingly out if no where to those passing by. I have a new love and appreciation for this family and I wish them all love, joy, and happiness. So happy they have chosen sobriety each day. I love to laugh with you Laura! Thank you and I hope she considers writing another, possibly or narrating another book that could use a comedic touch. I would absolutely recommend this book to others. So much fun and a joy to “read.”

    Love, love, love this book!!! She is so real and I'm thrilled that she narrated it herself!!

  • Elke V.

    Amazing story about the struggle of self worth, abuse and alcoholism but also on sobriety. Laura has an interesting lifestory, but also a funny and interesting and sometimes very emotional and touching way of bringing it. The book is never boring. I loved this audiobook.

    Knew I needed to get the audiobook so I could listen in her voice- do not regret my decision at all. It was the book I didn’t know I needed. Will be recommending to everyone I know.

  • Marli M.

    Loved every minute of it. This was so great! I cannot believe all she has been through in her life. It has all the elements for me and her narrating her own book is just excellent.

  • Kat A.

    If you feel guilt about your past, this is a great book to see that you’re not alone. I love hearing the realness in her set backs and failures. We grow because of failure and she’s learned so much that she’s now unstoppable. A great inspiration! Love her

    Amazing book a MUST LISTEN

  • Blandine H.

    I love Laura and Steven on social media. But to get to know her story, her path made me love her even more. I do recommend this book to anyone feeling down and self pity. Laura is a great influencer in many ways and I love that about her. Thanks for the book, the laughs, the silliness, the meditation,...

  • Racquelle M.

    I cried, I laughed, and I cried some more. This was more than just a funny and somber story. It was an honest conversation that I internally asked myself the hidden questions in the book. Highly recommend it!!

  • Jenny M.

    Great book and read amazingly well by the author! Patiently awaiting the next book!

  • Alya S.

    I love her way of narration, she's so funny yet clear, love everything in this book, I'm listening to it for the second time

  • Cassie J.

    Loved every part of this book. Finished it in a day. Highly recommend!

  • Tracy M.

    Absolutely wonderful and perfect! As the wife of a currently struggling alcoholic, this was a view into his world that helped me understand what he’s going through a little better. And Laura is just amazing!

  • Caitlin H.

    I didn't realise until the last few chapters that I have been watching Laura's Facebook videos for a few years now! I kept thinking "This girl is hilarious, how have I never heard of her?!" then she started talking about Steven and creating her own content and it all clicked. Her narration made me feel like I was listening to a friend share hilarious memories and I felt like I could relate easily to her story.

  • Nikki B.

    Laura did a great job of both writing and narrating her book! Being in and out of recovery myself, I appreciated her honesty and courage in sharing her story! Some don't and won't understand, but someone out there (likely many) needed to hear her story to save their own lives, including myself! I am grateful to her and really loved listening to her book on my long drive to work everyday! I definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone, because I think no matter who you are you can relate to some aspect of her story! I love that she is unapologetically herself and walks in faith and courage instead of fear! Thank you Laura!

  • Madi D.

    Amazing book and author!!! So inspirational...

  • Lauren C.

    I absolutely couldn’t wait to get this book!!! Well it was well worth the wait!!! I can’t lie...I was super excited to hear the story in her voice!!!! Yeeaaaaaaah!! I’ve been following Laura on IG for years and she’s frickin hilarious!!!! But this was a down right raw and honest side! ( And she still makes it funny!!!) I truly recommend this book for everyone!! (And trust me I already have aggressively recommended to many!

  • Ryan A.

    I have never listened something that made me want more. I am AFRAID of finish listening to this IDIOT book. I cant seem to find something similar to this. I am Indonesian. I do understand every word that clme out of Laura’s Narration. I feel like listening to it slowly but never ending. Please come out with Idiot Part 2 . I am currently at 4hrs mark, oh nooo 3hrs more to go..... The story is detailed, plus its being narrated you can feel as if she is somewhere around you. I can feel her struggle, her pain, her laughs, her hard work, her dedication, and much more. I would definitely recommend this book. And will always keep supporting your work. Love from Indonesia!!!

  • Rós S.

    I have never laughed so consistently through a book before. She is a force of nature. Loved every minute.
