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!
She is so not funny and her sarcasim which I usually love was to much.
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.
Maybe one of her earlier ones that had better reviews?
no! what else is there to say? she's clearly found the answer to everything. ha.
i think it's easy for people in her position to say the things she says and hold the perspectives she holds. overall, its a good self-help with humor i guess? i thought there'd be more insight or depth but… i guess in a book called 'seriously…I'm kidding' i should have known better. i was sad to have wasted my first credit from an audible gift certificate on it. didn't even finish it.
This book seems to have no defined purpose. It jumps from one topic to another, almost like a stand-up routine. There's nothing particularly enlightening or informative about it, but it is entertaining. It's great as an escape, if you don't want to think too much about anything.
Interestingly, I almost feel like it would have been funnier reading it on paper rather than listening to it. Ellen doesn't read it naturally like she would deliver it live, which is odd. I almost feel I would have heard it in my head (while reading) the way she would have delivered it live, and her reading it got in the way of the jokes.
I love Ellen as much as the next person, but I was disappointed with this book. I thought I would get some really funny stories, told in a true Ellen DeGeneres comedic way, but instead the book was preachy and came across as a self help book. I laughed here and there, but became annoyed with hearing about her secrets to a happy life and turned it off.

I believe Ellen is really at her best in this book, it's funny, it's sharp and her narrative is really amazing.
Ellen takes us to a lot of her everyday activities and we find out that she's just a human being living at her fullest just like most of us.
The performance by the author is just what this books needs, it's hilarious without falling into plain comedy.
I spent the whole time listening... laughing.
Simple topics, not funny. Was I supposed to laugh?!
Ellen reads it well, just poor content.
Would get my money back if I could.
