In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Ellen DeGeneres shares her hilarious take on everything from our most baffling human foibles–including how we behave in elevators, airplanes, and restrooms, and why we’re so scared of the boogeyman–to fashion trends, celebrity, and her secret recipe for Ellen’s Real Frenchy French Toast. Most of all, this witty, engaging book offers insights into the mind of one of America’s most beloved comics.…Dear Reader,I was awfully excited when I was asked to write a book. I was however, nervous. I was afraid I didn’t have anything important to say. But when I began writing, I realized that although I don’t know a lot about any one thing, I know a little about a whole bunch of things: baking a pie; dancing; curing the common cold; running the Iditarod–it’s all in the book. And I realized I notice things that maybe some people don’t notice (or they don’t notice that they don’t notice). That’s all in the book, too.From the Trade Paperback edition.

I have read all three of her books and I have given them all two stars. Her books are just one rambling, pointless chapter after another w...
I had a blast with reading Seriously... I’m Kidding, which is Ellen’s third book, but I didn’t find My Point... and I Do Have One as fun. Both books have pretty much the same idea and My Point... and I Do Have One even has these cute doodles in them. Sadly it didn’t make the book funnier. I love Ell...
I don't mind Ellen. But I have to take her in small doses. She does make me laugh - on her talk show. But this book really didn't make me laugh. It was often times just juvenile. Keep in mind this is younger Ellen just finding stardom from her sitcom "Ellen". Silly personal essays that really ...
