Anyway...I've read this book twice now, and it never ceases to amaze me with its laugh-out-loud humor and prose. I pick it up when I need a good laugh. In fact, that makes it a great pick-me-up! It never gets old for me.
I've also given this book as a gift to friends. Thankfully you can find it really cheap now. :)
So what are you waiting for? Order this book and you'll have something to read over and over and over again! You'll never have to buy another book.
grace the stage, and now bookshelves. Her book, "My Point...
and I do have one" is not your typical book written by
comedians. Ellen has not written this book to tell you how
much she loves her family, nor has she written it to tell
you all about the hard times she's had in her life, she
wrote it to bring you extreme joy, and hours of endless
laughter. When I first read this book in November of last
year I had only heard of Ellen from an HBO Comedy Showcase,
and I knew then that she was extremely funny. I borrowed
the book from a friend and went into my room and lay down on
my bed. I began to read it and before even finishing the
first chapter, and began laughing, hard. Laughing so hard
in fact that tears began streaming down my eyes. My mother
ran to my door and began knocking to ask what was wrong.
She thought I was crying I was laughing so hard. In her
book Ellen looks at the little things in life, like what
your teachers and friends thought of you when you were
growing up. What it is like to have a sister or brother
who is favoured. She deals with all of the issues, such
as wearing fur, in the funniest manner possible. She
does not tell about her life, at least not in an auto-
biographical manner. She looks at the little things in life
that we never take time to notice and she notices them for us
and makes us laugh about them. No one will be able to read more than a page of this book without
breaking into glorious laughter. It is a very therapeutic
book which could bring even the most dismal of people out
of the dumps. READ IT!!!!

Personally, I'm not quite sure how good it is as I have no intention of reading this book but I bought this book for my wife and she loves it so I guess this gets 5 stars. Read morePublished on March 25 2014 by DJ
I was really disappointed. I like Ellen a lot and thought I would get a few laughs out of a light-hearted book. Read morePublished on Sept. 27 2011 by Kerigan Kelly
I love Ellen DeGeneres as an actor and a comedienne. When I read this book, whilst I found some parts of it amusing, I have to say it wasn't as funny as I expected. Read morePublished on Jan. 8 2004

Not only did tears stream down my face whilst reading this book, but I also ended up wetting myself (though that could be due to my lack of bladder control). Read morePublished on Aug. 28 2003 by Megan
This was the worst book I've ever read. Not only is it a near copy of her stand-up comedy, but she fills the book with excerpts of how difficult it is to write a book and ends by... Read morePublished on Aug. 17 2003
