"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?"

Well as I was listening I was not sure was it meant to be funny or is it because it was an audiable. I love Ellen and she makes me laugh and smile. But the audio book did not come across as I thought. But I do love Ellen.
I thought Ellen is funny and looked forward to this audiobook. It is terrible. She may be a comedian, but she is no author. Her jokes were weak, lame, and infantile. Take "chapter 29": she sits there insulting our intelligence by making sounds, somewhat like a 5 year old does when he finds a tape recorder. Another comedian (Steve Martin) wrote an autobiography and succeeded. She doesnt. She doesn't even entertain. This book demands of me to review my prior conceptions (mis-) of this comedian. Save yourself the money!
I'm a huge fan of Ellen's sweet humor and I enjoyed getting away from the world's problems for a few hours while listening to this book. It sure helps to have the actual author as narrator.
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!
There are several funny lines and observations in typical Ellen style. Is there supposed to be a PDF?
I have not listened to this book yet. I'm sure I will love it. I love Ellen. She does such great stuff for so many people that it is wonderful to watch her show. Awesome.
Have not listened.
I was really dissatisfied with this book. I felt like she phoned this one in. The story did not flow well, stories we not very funny.
Felt like she was just reading it. I feel it was done with the same enthusiasm as high school home work
