"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?"

I'm a huge fan of Ellen's. Hence my purchase of this book. But I can't believe how bad it was. I guess I was looking for somewhat of a story line or something. Instead, it was just her incessantly rambling about any random thought that entered her brain. If you are looking for something extra silly and basically useless, then this is the book for you. I'm just glad I bought during a half off sale.
The worst book I have bought she is horrible person unfortunately nothing we can do I wash I have my money and time baek
I usually love everything that Ellen stands for, but this was ridiculous! A chapter devoted to having to listen to her eat an apple ~ come on!
Not much meat on the bones, as they say. Ellen is such a bright, funny woman — filled with wisdom and insights. But this book felt more like ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) SCHTICK — oh look, a bright, shinny penny — rather than insights and wisdom communicated WITH humor. Sorry Ellen, I love you and your show, but not this book.
I love Ellen. I think her stand-up is wonderful. I love watching clips from her show.
This audiobook was so random, and so less-than-funny, that it seemed like Ellen was basically paid to write (and then read) words on a page, most of which were not particularly entertaining. Many of the anecdotes were stream-of-consciousness and had no real weight. I was ultimately disappointed with the lack of content in this 3+ hour audiobook. Save your money and buy something else!!
