I've been reading this book on and off for a while. I'm a huge Ellen DeGeneres fan, and while her humor doesn't quite translate from the stage to the page, I still found myself laughing out loud at these short chapters. Here's just one great example:

"It's really bad if your birthday is actually on Christmas day. (Unless you're Jesus. In that case - what a party! By the way, if you are Jesus, thank you so much for buying this book. What an honor. Is there any way you'd give a quote for the paperback edition? I mean, who wouldn't buy it if Jesus recommended it on the back? I ask only because Oprah's Book Club ended and it would be a huge get, but you don't have to decide right now.)"

This is a good light read. ( )

I am not sure I could of read this book but I enjoyed listening to it on my way to and from work.

Best I can say about it - is that it is Ellen at her best. ( )

I love Ellen Degeneres, I love her show,cheers me up and when I start watching a vid of her show I just keep on watching 4 hrs, amazing ...

So I was pretty excited abt reading the book, it had her spirit but I felt sthing was missing, Ellen is way funnier & smarter than this, maybe it didn't show in da book, so I decided 2 listen 2 da audio book and it got better, Ellen's way of talking is just hilarious..

Why 3 stars not more? well it wasn't that epicaly amazing as I've expected, if u don't know Ellen u gotta watch her show 1st be4 reading, would tell u ALOT abt who she really is better than the book, the book is just bits & pieces of thoughts, ideas and monologues shewyet habal :-D..

Nothing special abt the book, it just tells u wat u already know abt Ellen, she's a very nice person -check wat she said abt her experience of being a judge in Idol-, she's very confident, no insecurities like most of us althou she's different -check wat she said abt her age-, she's very funny ofcourse, very smart saying smart comments in a funny hilarious way , very young @ heart, very loving, very persistant-check her diaries & her struggle till she finally got this show that wasn't cancelled-, very creative-u'll find it best in her shows,lots of funny ideas 2 cheer up her audiance-,very successful-happily married,puts u in confusion if u r anti gay since they r happy homosexual couple-..

In a nutshell, she's amazing, I'd recommend her show it's better, not sure if I'll buy her 1st 2 books, I'll probably just download the audio books, better.. ( )

Ellen's sense of humor gave me a few good laughs; and, while I found her point of view on many topics to be refreshing, after a bit it seemed like she was rambling. ( )

I've experienced a lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?
