I really wanted to love it, Ellen had been the guru personality for quite a while now and, influenced by the media, I decided I want to like her.

The funny thing is... the book is overrated. Even though it did make me laugh 2 or 3 times while walking around the city with headphones in (and startling the strangers passing by), that was pretty much it. I don't know what I expected, hadn't even seen any of her shows, so since I had no expectations I can't say I am disappointed, but the thing I liked most about this audio-book was Ellen's voice and manner of speech.

The contents were just rubbish tied together in almost random passages designed to make people laugh. Or, in my case, smile.
