Wouldn't it be great if life came with an instruction manual? Of course, but like access to Michael B. Jordan's house, none of us are getting any. Thankfully, Phoebe Robinson is ready to share everything she's experienced in hopes that if you can laugh at her topsy-turvy life, you can laugh at your own. Written in her trademark unfiltered and singularly witty style, Robinson's latest essay collection is a call to arms. She tackles a wide range of topics, such as giving feminism a tough love talk in hopes it can become more intersectional; telling society's beauty standards to kick rocks; and demanding that toxic masculinity close its mouth and legs (enough with the manspreading already!), and get out of the way so true progress can happen. Robinson also gets personal, exploring debt she has hidden from her parents, how dating is mainly a warmed-over bowl of hot mess, and maybe most importantly, meeting Bono not once, but twice. She's struggled with being a woman with a political mind and a woman with an ever-changing jean size. She knows about trash not only because she sees it every day, but also because she's seen about one hundred thousand hours of reality TV and zero hours of Schindler's List. Everything's Trash, But It's Okay is a candid perspective for a generation that has had the rug pulled out from under it too many times to count, as well as an intimate conversation with a new best friend.

From body image to contemporary feminism to our culture of overwork, Robinson offers deft cultural criticism and hilarious personal anecdotes that will make readers laugh, cringe, and cry.

It’s not a perfect book--at times, Robinson overwrites, gets lost in tangents, and uses five jokes to make a point where one or two would sufice but this is still well worth a read.

A part of me is disappointed that I didn’t get to listen to the author read the audiobook. While her stream of consciousness jokes and witty observations are entertaining, sometimes she went into all out Virginia Woolf mode. I think Robinson’s writing flows best while being spoken aloud. I’m still going to check the audiobook out from the library. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an unbiased review.

I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did, but it is clear her writing got better with her second book. The book is so topical and timely. A lot of the things she wrote about you've probably read about but she writes about it from an entirely refreshing angle. The book covers dating, feminism, finance, Phoebe meeting Bono and #BritishBae . The entire time I was reading this book I could hear Phoebe in my head which speaks to how authentic the writing is. Everything Is Trash, but this book isn't! I definitely recommend picking this one up. Thanks DuttonBooks!

    I read this entire book with Phoebe Robinson's voice in my head. From her deep dive into her trouble with feminism (I feel you, girl) to her deep and abiding love for Bono, Phoebe is hilarious, insightful, talented and real. She's a real person with real feeling about real things. She's not afraid to be honest. This book is much needed in this current climate.

    This is solidly interesting because Phoebe is funny andnshe does a good audiobook reading. But I didn’t love it as much as her first book, except maybe the addendum, which is super sweet and adorable as she talks about how she met her bae and he chimes in as well.

    I have to admit I’ve never listened to “2 Dope Queens” (only because I don’t listen any podcasts), but I enjoyed Robinson’s first book You Can’t Touch My Hair, so I snatched this one up on pub day. I admire a smart, strong, funny woman who isn’t afraid to share personal stories, but will also broach important societal issues. This essay collection is a good mix. Robinson’s boisterous personality and comical narration is an entertaining audio experience.

She has definitely upped her game with Everything Is Trash! The truth just poured out of her and it was like swimming through truth-bomb after truth-bomb sans any cheese. I love the real-world/real-girl struggling to make it story. It’s the same in every career where you’re putting yourself out there to make a name for yourself but it’s hit with stops and starts. I love all her political commentary even tho it’s relatively stuck to one essay which I also appreciated. I love how she spoke of the complexities black women faced joining the women’s march — it’s something that I definitely went through at the time it occurred. I love how much she rode for sisters in this book. Her obsession with Bono is hilarious, her new beau and all the tea she spilled about loneliness and money really impressed the fuck out of me. Just her ability to be candid was so inspiring. I think this she redeemed herself in Everything Is Trash and she solidified herself as a certified comedy-memoir writer. I’ll read all of them, keep writing Pheebs!

Robinson attacks preconceived notions about race, feminism, politics, weight, and dating in the technological age with humor and honesty. Robinson’s career in spoken word, shines in this candid story that is meant to be heard. Readers will laugh, cry, and rally with Robinson’s personal anecdotes and real-life examples. While everything IS trash Robinson leaves readers with hope filled action steps and ways to make a positive impact on the world. This is perfect for fans of podcasts and late-night show personalities. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!

    Hilarious storytelling as expected, full of Phoebe's signature "abrevs aka abbreviations," metaphors taken to their creative extremes and beyond, bomb.com hashtags, tangents upon tangents and liberally sprinkled with her contagious giggle. With a bonus adorbs cameo from the bf she nicknames British Bakeoff co-telling the story of how they met. Which of course involves U2, because of course, heehee!

    Phoebe does not disappoint! It was a treat to listen to her read this book. While her stories of Hollywood are fun, I really appreciated her candor about her money struggles and addiction to overworking and there consequences her life. Can’t wait for the next one!

    Hey Booboos! This was a very funny audio book and I snorted on the subway a few too many times. As Ilana Glazer writes in the foreward, Phoebe's relationship with language is extraordinary. I got lost in a few tangents but it was worth it for the "lol.coms" I found this book had a great deal of depth, particularly in her chapter on feminism and Im still a big fan of the Phoebs. I'm glad she is seeing success and that she is continuing to make us laugh (and think).

    I read the audiobook and would recommend it, I think it better captures her style which often involves a lot of tangents and jokes within jokes (like little Robinson nesting jokes). My favorite was the chapter, "Feminism, I Was Rooting for You; We Were All Rooting for You."

    Okay, this book blew me away! I read and enjoyed Phoebe Robinson's other book, You Can't Touch My Hair, when it first came out. but this book was a whole level above her last book. I think her writing has gotten better and I had the joy of listening to her narrate this on Audible. Phoebe is most well known for her podcast, 2 Dope Queens, which I must confess I've never actually listened to, but it makes sense that she would make a great narrator.

Phoebe is most well known for her podcast, 2 Dope Queens, which I must confess I've never actually listened to, but it makes sense that she would make a great narrator. My first thought when I started listening was that Phoebe is really funny. I laughed out loud at several of her stories and really enjoyed her perspectives. But she totally blew me out of the water with her essay on white feminism. I can't remember the title, but it's early in the book and if you read the book, you will definitely know which one I'm talking about. Phoebe takes no prisoners in this essay and while parts of it made me feel really bad, she is totally right and I really appreciate her calling it like it is. White women are absolutely one of the groups to blame for Trump being elected and our failure to make feminism intersectional is not okay. The essay is at times uncomfortable, but accurate. Black women and women of colour are much more oppressed then white women and have been fighting for equality for much longer than white women have. But we're at a time when feminism has really taken off (third wave?) and white women are dropping the ball on their black sisters. It's nothing new, we've been doing it for centuries. I recently listened to Elaine Weiss's book, The Woman's Hour, which is about suffragists and their fight to win the vote. Weiss also draws attention to the fact that while the suffragists did win the right to vote for all women, they were never in support of women of colour and many didn't believe they should be afforded the right to vote alongside white women. Robinson draws attention to the fact that Women of Colour have been showing up to fight for equality alongside white women for decades, but white women fail to return the favour. I can see how this essay might alienate some of her readers, but I'm so glad she wrote it. I'm sure some will dismiss her as an angry, black woman, but she should be angry, her feelings are valid, and she should be empowered to write about it. In my opinion this was the strongest essay in the book, but she did write some other great essays on money and social issues. I was all ready to give this book 5 stars after her essay on feminism, which I thought was a really hard hitting thought piece, but her book took a bit of a different direction after that. She includes several funny stories about what it was like to finally achieve a modicum of success and what it was like meet Oprah and Bono. The essays were funny, which is the primary reason people come to this book, but they just weren't as inspiring as some of her other essays. Its a minor complaint because not everything is going to have the same emotional gravitas, but after that one really great essay, everything else just felt the tiniest bit disappointing. Phoebe is a little bit over the top sometimes, as are her jokes, and I didn't like the addendum in the audiobook, which is basically like this weird couple interview that I thought didn't add any value. But overall Phoebe delivered on everything I was looking for in this book. She was laugh out loud funny (I would seriously recommend the audiobook over the hard copy), and she made me think. Side note: Phoebe's attempt at going on a blind date when she was visiting Vancouver was pretty much the funniest, most accurate thing ever. Her date tried to convince her to go on a morning hike with him and she was like, "Nope, I am not going out in the wilderness with a man I don't know, that is how women get murdered." Which is totally accurate (the murder part), but also the best description ever of what dating in Vancouver is like. Everyone's all about that nature; I don't even doubt this was a total innocent (and oblivious) move on her blind date's part. People are just obsessed with the outdoors in Vancouver and don't understand how someone might not be as into it as the rest of us (I include myself in this us, lol).

"Throughout this book, let's acknowledge all the trash that's surrounding us (literal littler and also the state of American politics) and accept the trashery within ourselves that we cannot change (the way I eat chips, you would think a Sonos surrounded-sound system was installed in my molars) while fixing the garbage that can and should be changed (e.g., FaceTiming in public without headphones on so everyone can hear your friend regaling you with a story about her noisy neighbors like it's a Greek tragedy), and then please put in your prayer requests that I meet Viola Davis together." "Black people are being tasked with solely fixing a system of oppression as if it's not a societal problem that not only affects everyone but requires the efforts of everyone to achieve equality. Black people are made to feel alone. They're not. We're all in this bloody, depressing, trash pile of a mess together and we've been in it for far too long-centuries-for the excuse "I don't know what to say" to ring true at all anymore. So please, WP, find the damn words." "Silence and putting your head down is flat-out unacceptable and only makes more visible the fact that you're trying to remain invisible in the face of atrocities." "Society's like some shitty club we got dressed up to go to because we've been convinced it's amazing even though, truth be told, da clurb needs us. The bouncer's an asshole, makes some snide comments, reminds you that he normally wouldn't let you in, and then, once you're inside, the DJ is just playing the Black Eyed Peas and Hoobstank all night, and you and your girlfriends look at each other like, " I went to some bougie spa and let my vajeen get steamed like it's an eight-piece dumpling appetizer at a restaurant for this?" "I feared being judged for my financial stupidity, and that my current situation would define me in the eyes of whomever I told, my parents included, who, by the way, are not judgy." "I may have been a youthful thirty on the outside, but on the inside, I was one hundred and twelve and doing the backing vocals on the DJ Khaled remix to "Wade in the Water." I was exhausted as hell and wanted a break!" "Life is too hard and we're all trying to stay afloat financially to let what others might think matter just as much, if not more, as having enough money in the bank to live. And if we all just decided to not be so secretive about money, maybe we'd all feel better?" "It's like love is a small-time gangster shaking you down every week for all that you got, and as you scrounge up all your cash, love goes, "Don't make me come down here again just for these wack-ass Jacksons and Lincolns." But when you're single, you can do whatever the hell you want with the money." "Learn to love yourself, because if you can't do it, life is going to be a bumpy-ass rollercoaster ride like the one I took where the safety bar went perfectly across..."

Worth quoting: “I am also a ludicrous trash fire like the kind you see on Naked and Afraid when people sign up to be in the wilderness when they’re barely capable of troubleshooting Mozilla Firefox, let alone making an actual fire from scratch.” Why I chose it: I enjoyed Ms. Robinson’s first book, and this one looked pretty great. Review: I have to admit that I don’t listed to Two Dope Queens anymore. It sort of fell out of rotation for me, mostly because some of the stand-up acts were just not my thing, and it’s hard to figure out how to fast-forward the right amount on a podcast. But that doesn’t mean I stopped enjoying Jessica Williams or Phoebe Robinson. So when I saw Ms. Robinson had a follow-up book out, I knew I wanted to read it. I laughed a lot while reading this book. Not on every page, but definitely each essay — including the more serious ones — offered something to crack up about. I think her style may not be for everyone, as she tends to employ a lot of ridiculous abbreviations and beyond long hashtags, but for me, it works. While the book focuses on some things that are indeed trash, I also really enjoyed the sections where Ms. Robinson focuses on what’s gone well in her life. It doesn’t feel like bragging; it’s just more fun to read about the good things. I’m genuinely happy for her. That said, the serious chapters are well done. The essay on feminism is a great look at the ways women of color often don’t feel supported by white women, and her vulnerability when discussing her financial troubles is relatable to the point that I think it could genuinely help some similarly situated folks. If you like Ms. Robinson, I think you’ll enjoy this book.

    I adore Phoebe and wish that she was someone I knew IRL. Her second collection of essays show a more open, honest and maturing version of the author/comedienne. It’s nice to see someone who has struggled, find their way to success. Pheebs is absolutely hysterical and anyone who follows her career can tell you she writes just how she speaks. Besides the comedy aspect, her essays discuss real issues like feminism and racism while making you nod along and shake your head at her #ignorant comments.

It’s a topic we all avoid, while many of us, particularly in our twenties, know so little about finances that it was amazing to hear about the tough times she was going through and how she turned it around. Other stand out essays where she talked about how harsh women are on our bodies and how feminism needs to be more inclusive, not just focusing on cis straight white women who are educated. Her first collection is better than this one and certainly made me laugh a lot harder. Overall I enjoyed phoebe’s writing and seeing how she’s grown as a person and writer. The last essay about meeting British Bae was cute. What this collection did was point out some if the trash ways of the world, but Phoebe reminds us there is some light on the other side of the trash and everything will be okay.

    My expectations were very, very high for this book, since I read Robinson's first collection twice, and rolled around the floor laughing both times. Maybe I didn't find this one as funny because it's not my fresh introduction to her, or maybe I just had a totally unrealistic expectation of how much she should make me laugh. I don't want my rating to discourage anyone from the book, because Robinson is a treasure and this book is a great past-time.

    Ithink I like this one even more than the original. I don't know if it is just that I really love her storytelling style, or that I've seen her live and listened to more of her podcast, so I feel like I know her better, but I just read the whole thing in her voice. Cannot wait to listen to the audiobook when it comes out. Massively huge thanks to Penguin Randomhouse for the ARC I received(this morning!) I an in love.

    Phoebe Robinson is back with more of her observations about life. This time she covers feminism, toxic masculinity and other hard (and some not so hard topics with her trademark humor). I have to admit, I suspect that I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one because of where I am in my own life versus Ms. Robinson's writing. I think that most people will enjoy this book as much as the first.

    I just love Phoebe Robinson so much. I laughed big belly laughs many times throughout this book, nodded in agreement, and am generally in awe of her. She combines well-researched essays with personal stories and incredible wit. Plus, #BritishBaekoff makes an appearance in the audiobook and it’s delightful. Highly recommend the audio. It was over too soon.

    This book is fun and fluffy, but also deep and real at the same time. Phoebe Robinson uses an extremely colloquial and intimate style in her essays that truly feels like hashing through your thoughts with a friend. I highly enjoyed these essays.

    I listened to the audio book...HYSTERICAL! It's a fun collection of essays that are laugh-out-loud and revealing. There were too many asides and slang jargon for my taste but this is quite an enjoyable read. I appreciate the treat in the addendum!
