The actress, comedian, and New York Times bestselling author picks up where she left off in Ali in Wonderland, dissecting modern life--and this time, she's 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 growing metaphysical importance. And thus begins her "Unhappiness Project."

It's not all that long before Ali expands her self-improvement quest to include parenting, relationships, 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 far-fetched, 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).

Not as funny or insightful as her last book. She is more funny on the screen.

I love watching Ali Wentworth on talk shows...she truly knows hows to turn an everyday statement or thought into something hysterically funny. Unfortunately, that comedic talent did not transfer into the written word.

Entertaining. Could certainly relate to many of her feelings and experiences and I admit I did laugh out loud - that's always a good sign. Very quick read.
