I just love Ellen. She is warm and caring and so personable. Obviously she is hilariously witty and intelligent and effortlessly beautiful. But what really strikes me is that she is so personable and relatable, and really, truly cares about other people. This book had me laughing out loud so much that I had to replay the chapters several times before I actually heard everything, because I would laugh so hard I couldn't hear the rest of what she said. Highly recommended.
I've been a fan of Ellen's writing since picking up her first book "My Point... And I Do Have One" back in high school. She's funny, witty, relatable and honest. Plus, she's optimistic and positive.
This book combines her random thought conversation style and throws in bits and pieces from her own life. I think her willingness to be honest and share things from her experience is one of the main reasons she connects so well with her readers/audience. Another reason is that even though she is relentless in encouraging people to be positive, look for the joys in life and appreciate every day, she never comes across as pushy or preachy.
I laughed a lot while reading this, and when I was done, I felt really good about my life and how lucky I am for what I have. I recommend you read this book. I think you'll be glad you did.
Graphic designer and University professor. I love comics and to be always learning something new!
I'm lucky to have been raised vegan like my parents and understand so much all she talks about positivism and kindness... The book fills you up with so much love and laughter that it's contagious!
For huge fans of Ellen like me, a little warning, there's a bunch of stuff she has already used on her monologues on her show but it's still funny :P
I live more than a 1.000.000 miles from USA and still makes a difference in my life! I loved it!
I absolutely love audible! I read constantly and there is nothing better than finding a new series to follow. I'm a syfy/fant kinda gal.
It's mid level. I've read better but I've read worse...
Yes. This book was good for a few great laughs. I like Ellen in general and enjoy her comedy.
Her sarcasm about real life simple acts really entertains.
I loved her describing her cover girl experience.
It was not as funny as her show. Maybe the ambience during the show makes her funnier.
It started out well but fizzled toward the end.
The narration was OK.
Quite a few after two-thirds of the book.
I still like her humor, just not in book form.
You stay classy, Planet Earth.
I'm not really sure who would like this.
The way this was read was so awkward. It just sounded all wrong. Not funny at all.
It didn't sound natural. Took away from the funny writing.
Hearing it read by her seems more funny than reading it.
Some tiny funny bits.
I'LL WRITE A REVIEW WHEN I FINISH THE BOOK. SO FAR, I FIND IT VERY HILARIOUS!!!!! ELLEN IS THE BEST, MOST INSPIRATIOUAL, AND LOVING PERSON I'VE EVER SEEN.
SOME DAY, I WOULD LIKE TO MEET HER AND PORTIA!!
I'M DISABLED AND HAVE NO TRANSPORTATION. I VOLUNTEER WITH THE OZARKS LITERACY COUNCIL, TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO READ AND WRITE, AND IN NOVEMBER, I VOLUNTEER FOR THE SALVATION ARMY AS A BELL RINGER. I REALLY ENJOY DOING THESE THINGS, BUT SINCE I TOTALED MY CAR IN DECEMBER, I'VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO THE THINGS I LOVE.
I LOVE YOU ELLEN, AND REMEMBER TO "BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER!".
