Publisher's Summary

From the cocreator and costar of the hit series Broad City, a hilarious and poignant collection about love, loss, work, comedy, and figuring out who you really are when you thought you already knew.

When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn't she going with friends? Wouldn't it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one... why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. 

As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions: What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood? In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections - all told in the sharp, wildly funny, and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike - listeners will feel like they're in the passenger seat on a fun and ultimately inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Poignant, funny, and beautifully unabashed, I Might Regret This takes readers on both a cross-the-country adventure and a deep dive into Abbi Jacobson's gigantic heart." (Cheryl Strayed)
 

"Intimate and brave in a way her audience has yet to experience, I Might Regret This is a funny, vulnerable, generous, and excruciatingly honest look at the beautiful heart that beats inside Abbi Jacobson." (Samantha Irby, New York Times best-selling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and Meaty)

"As a passionate fan of Abbi Jacobson's comedy, it was no surprise to me that this book is hilarious, peculiar, and very smart. But I was unprepared for the courage she shows in making herself vulnerable on these pages: Jacobson cracks herself open and explores love and loneliness, travel and independence, success and self-loathing. I wish I hadn't finished reading this...I miss her already." (Ariel Levy, New York Times best-selling author of The Rules Do Not Apply)

Stressful listen

If I had to describe I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff in one word it would be stressful.

If you enjoy reading page after page (or listening to hour after hour) of late night neurotic ramblings, then this book might be perfect for you. I, on the other hand, am already a high-strung Jew who is tortured by what ifs and worst case scenarios late at night, so this book just made me sweat and think of what I am possibly currently doing wrong with my life.

I love Broad City, like most (if not all) of the other people reading this book, but I found the story hard to get through. It actually got a lot better towards the end for me, but I slogged through hours of rambling that I didn't find particularly funny.

Though I enjoyed learning about Abbi being a boss and discovering her sexuality, I can't say that I recommend this audiobook.

Love love love Abbi. Hate that I didn’t love this book.

It really pains me to write this because I am a huge Broad City & Abbi Jacobson fan, so I was psyched to listen to this. I was sadly really disappointed. This seems like something she could have written in a diary and probably not published. Chapter 13, where she talks about her professional background, was the only time I was really engaged. Also, like another reviewer said, I felt more irritated than entertained and found myself just trying to get through it so I could move on to something else. So bummed! Maybe it would have been better to read than to listen to. I wouldn’t (sorry Abbi!!!) recommend.

This Isn't A Book, It's A Terrible Diary

The only reason why this is published is because of the author's fame. I listened to the entire book in hopes it would correct itself. This was pretty much as bad as it gets. Abbi reads it well and I certainly laughed at times. The problem is, this "book" is embarrassingly bad. just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. I love Abbi's acting. She needs to stick to only writing scripts.

Exceeds Expectations

Wonderfully and passionately narrated by the writer, Abbi. She is real and relatable and full of surprises

I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of her Series, Broad City.

This book pretty much applies to any fellow human (or dog, cat, etc.) whether you’re a struggling young creative, a socially analytical introvert or simply someone who appreciates good story telling.

Quick listen- bright, funny and sincere

No longer a fan

Long winded, never getting to the point. Lost precious moments of my day listening to abbi use up her word count talking nonsense about teacups and saucers. Sorry, abbi, I’m not your therapist and I didn’t pay money to be your therapist. This isn’t “raw” or “poignant”. It’s just another liberal white lady exerting her privilege by forcing us to listen to her inane and unoriginal thoughts as if they were clever and enlightened.

Loved abbi’s narration

Loved her affect and effects as a narrator. Plus, great writing. Meaningful, both funny and sad, without veering off inauthentically. Would highly recommend!

I Might Regret Reading This...

I love Abbi Jacobson but this book was not for me. She lost me at all of the long drawn out ramblings where I found myself more irritated than interested in what she had to say. Although there were a few relatable and touching moments that drew me in, it was overall pretty boring. I was really looking forward to delving into this because of the comments and ratings, but I was left feeling disappointed.

Profound and Joyful

The stories Abbi shares on her adventure are raw and relatable and also, I was laughing out loud throughout the whole book. Loved it. I love and admire how Abbi shares with such vulnerability with us.
