I like Ellen - I like her show and I think she's incredibly smart and funny. However, I found this book to be lacking in all areas. it wasn't smart - it and worse - it wasn't very funny. I read that in other reviews and thought - well they just don't like her enough and don't have a good sense of humor. Wrong.... I really should have taken the other reviews to heart.
Not necessarily - but I'll think twice before getting another from Ellen.
disappointment. I really like Ellen - and thought the book would be better than the other reviews mentioned. I was wrong. I should have taken to heart what the other reviews said.
I was expecting humer. Instead I got Ellen's rambling train of thoughts. Which would have been fine if there were any moments of substance
I love and admire her and if she's going to write a book I need genuine transparency or intellect!
I don't think do
I love Ellen so I'd listen to this a few hundred times more! Its crazy, Zany, but with a Heartfelt Underlining tone!
If you love Ellen, You'll love this book!
Fun and funny!
I listened to this audiobook while driving cross country and it seemed to shorten the trip. My daughter enjoyed it too!

I have always liked Ellen Degeneres. Hearing herself narrate her own book is fantastic! Her humor is fun and her outlook on life is wonderful.
Ellen does a great job performing her work. Even made adjustments to the book to make it appropriate for audio.
Light and fun listen. Made me smile and chuckle, and warmed my heart a few times.
Listening to Ellen Is like watching her TV except i am not tied down to the TV. I can listen and laugh outside, while driving my car or while relaxing in bed. I enjoy using my imagination to see her expressions as she reads her book. I would highly recommend this listen to everyone!! It really does put a smile on your face. My husband smiles at me as I listen and laugh out loud.
Loved the humor throughout the book. She talks about situations we are all familiar with, she talks about things that have happened to all of us. She is really down to earth.
I loved the chapter Ellen has on sounds she makes and she says for those of you reading you will have to just imagine the sounds I will make and for those listening - you can hear them. HAHA- she is a hoot!
No - I listen and repeat chapters when i need to de-stress.
buy it! You will not regret it.

Seriously...who doesn't love her? What's not to love? She's hillarious and this is just a silly little book that will crack you up.. Great pick me up or just a good listen when you need a laugh..
I just didn't find this book that funny. Some parts were downright boring and couldn't wait to finish it and move on to my next one.
I guess it just was not my type of book.
I generally like Ellen DeGeneres' humor, but this was rambling nonsense. I kept checking to see how many more chapters were left to determine if there would be a fleeting chance that it would get better. I was left uninspired and definitely not entertained. A die-hard Ellen fan may overlook the lack of content and enjoy the chummy reading.
I would listen to other books from Ellen DeGeneres. I am hopeful that future books will contain intelligent dialog that represents her world class humor.
The performance was tolerable, but I'm afraid the lack of conviction for her own work seems to affect the overall performance.
