"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 didn't expect earth shattering, thought provoking writing but this book was pretty pointless and wasn't that funny. I'd recommend Chelsea Handler, Tina Fey, or Mindy Khaliq instead.
I was super excited for this book, I LOVE Ellen!! Unfortunately it seems like she just wrote down her train of thought for a day and somehow got it published. The way this bounces around and the way the chapters blow through with just a few words per chapter actually gives me anxiety!!
I expected more. Love Ellen, but would like to get a refund on this book - not even on the same standard/quality as her talk shows.
Performance ok - just like Ellen
Story needed more substance.
It's was good but I was expecting more. It was cute but not the kind of funny you expect from Ellen. At times it just felt like she was going on a rant. There's no real story line.
Again? I don't think so. It's the kind of book you enjoy only once. Like watching her show and listening to her great jokes. Listening to it again would make it a bit boring since I know what's she is going to say.
I would, but I think I would let some time go by before doing so. She's a great person, comedian and writer but she often talks about the same topics and sometimes the jokes are too American, I wish it would be a bit more international for a change!
A LOT. I wouldn't have bought it if someone else read it! It feels like she's having a conversation with you, and her way of speaking really makes it funny.
Laugh a lot. She's funny! I was kind of expecting to laugh even more, though!
I love the fact that behind the jokes and the situations she really conveys a strong message which can be inspiring!
I'LL WRITE A REVIEW WHEN I FINISH THE BOOK. SO FAR, I FIND IT VERY HILARIOUS!!!!! ELLEN IS THE BEST, MOST INSPIRATIOUAL, AND LOVING PERSON I'VE EVER SEEN.
SOME DAY, I WOULD LIKE TO MEET HER AND PORTIA!!
I'M DISABLED AND HAVE NO TRANSPORTATION. I VOLUNTEER WITH THE OZARKS LITERACY COUNCIL, TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO READ AND WRITE, AND IN NOVEMBER, I VOLUNTEER FOR THE SALVATION ARMY AS A BELL RINGER. I REALLY ENJOY DOING THESE THINGS, BUT SINCE I TOTALED MY CAR IN DECEMBER, I'VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO THE THINGS I LOVE.
I LOVE YOU ELLEN, AND REMEMBER TO "BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER!".
