"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 love ED, but this book was like one of her shows, entertaining and had some chuckles.
However, no story or depth, or anything that interesting. Not worth the money.
My 10 year old had more chuckles, if Ellen reformats the book she can easily re-purpose for a younger audience.
Ellen's humor and narrating style make this easy to listen to. However, I felt like a lot of the chapters was her going on tangents. She tried to portray herself that way, but it got old. Admittedly some were very funny, but it got got old and made it hard for me to believe she had a real purpose in writing the book. Throughout she does give life lessons she's learned which are helpful. In conclusion there are really good chapters, and a lot of "where are you going with this?" chapters.
I generally like Ellen, but this was horrible... a waste of time and money. Very little comedic value and her frivolous chit-chat tone was pure stupidity. I don't like to write bad reviews, but feel I owe it to the next person considering this purchase. I wish the reviews I'd read had warned me.
If it had some sense of story. The bulk of this book was inane and I LOVE Ellen.
Far too much to list.
I was just really disappointed in the content of the book. Off the bat Ellen plays like she unwittingly signed up for a book deal - and it really feels like that.
If she treated this book like one she wanted to do rather than one she had to do - or one she was only doing for money, I probably would have appreciated it more. Will not read another Ellen book.
First book from audible I purchased. It was amazing to hear a book read theatrically. What an experience!
normally I love Ellen but this was pure tripe. I want my money back please. seriously. ... not kidding
