Star of 'The Talk' putting out comedy book


If you are anything like me, when you think of comedy, you think of Aisha Tyler.

Wait, what?

Tyler, who is a co-host on CBS' 'The Talk,' will be putting out a book called "Self-Inflicted Wounds," a collection of comedic essays. The book will be published by HarperCollins imprint It Books, with a release date scheduled for July 2013.

Tyler has already released one book, "Swerve," in 2004. A quick check on Amazon showed a three out of five stars rating and this description: "In this rowdy collection of pop culture essays, Aisha Tyler brings her razor-sharp wit and sweet irreverence to bear on everything from light beer, dating strategies, and music videos to women’s self-image, the Ms. Foundation, and Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. Both comical and scathing, Aisha uses hilarious stories from her own life to investigate the mysteries of platonic friendship between men and women, compare male and female strip-club behavior, and answer, once and for all, whether size matters. Swerve is fresh, ambitious, and shocking—a "Gordian knot" of pop culture observations that will fascinate and engage postmodern girls and guys alike."

The new book will focus on personal advancement, overcoming failure and will discuss “poignant life lessons." It is believed that Tyler's podcast, "Girl on Guy with Aisha Tyler," will serve as the basis for this new book.

Before she got the gig on "Ghost Whisperer", she was pretty well known as a comedian.  Not that she was ever anyone's favorite, but that's how she made her bones.
