Short Synopsis
Award-winning writer, producer, and stand-up comedian Carol Leifer shares her secrets for success in this hilarious, must-listen book.

Full Synopsis
For many years, television comedy was an exclusive boys' club—until a brilliant comedian named Carol Leifer came along, blazing a trail for funny women everywhere. From Late Night with David Letterman and Saturday Night Live to Seinfeld, The Ellen Show, and Modern Family, Carol has written for and/or performed on some of the best TV comedies of all time.

This hilarious collection of essays charts her extraordinary three-decade journey through show business, illuminating her many triumphs and some missteps along the way—and offering valuable lessons for women and men in any profession. Part memoir, part guide to life, and all incredibly funny, How to Succeed in Business without Really Crying offers tips and tricks for getting ahead, finding your way, and opening locked doors—even if you have to use a sledgehammer.

"As [Leifer] recounts her life story, as well as tips for success in show business, in her own New York accent, her delivery is funny." ---AudioFile

"An amusing, amiable read. Leifer wants you to love what you do and learn to move on from failures and rejections-and please, always shower before a job interview." ---Kirkus

"Listen up to every word, because if Carol can't help you, nobody can." ---Jimmy Kimmel
