"I've experienced a whole 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?"

This book is funny and light hearted. Just what I was looking for in a comedy. Ellen does a wonderful job performing. The pace is just right - not too fast, not too slow- just write. It does get a bit too silly in some parts but overall a great comedy!
This was a great book, she throws in some lighthearted chapters when she reads heavy ones to show you it's okay to laugh at the experiences. Even if you have already read it I highly recommend the Audio Book because she makes it so much better. Be happy.
Love her show but this was boring and nonsense. I felt like I was duped and spent money on a book that she threw out for bucks in her pocket.

While Ellen is funny and full of life, I just felt like this was very rambling and just not very interesting.
First off, I absolutely adore Ellen on her talk show. I think she is an amazing person. However, in my opinion this book was far from amazing. Honestly, I couldn't even finish it. I stopped listening around chapter 17 and am completely surprised I even let it go on that long without stopping it sooner. I was waiting for the book to pick up and become entertaining. Needless to say that never happened.
This book is completely chaotic. There's no structure. There's no story. Imagine someone smoking pot and then rambling for a few hours about the most random of random that random could ever be. Around chapter 17 is when I decided to read the bad reviews and was surprised that I truthfully couldn't agree more with them. I though maybe I was the asshole that wasn't listening or comprehending properly. But no, the majority of the population was in agreeance this book was bad. Unfortunately I would not recommend this book, unless of course it was too a stoner than I would definitely recommend it.
In true Ellen style this book manages to capture humour while at the same time instilling various positive ideas in the reader. Great book.
Ellen cannot be any funnier. otherwise I would have to find the fountain of youth or the secret to immortality, I would totally give it to you because I want you to live FOREVER!
THERE WAS NO FORM, REMINDED ME OF SOMEONE'S RANDOM THOUGHTS.
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. I WANT A REFUND
