This hilarious book spent 24 weeks on the Publisher's Weekly bestseller list, and was also a #1 New York Times bestseller, so this should give you some indication of how popular it is. Ellen DeGeneres, "The Funniest Person In America" brand of humor is clean and down to earth and her books are an extension of her stand-up comedy routine. You will laugh out loud on every page, and re-read this book over and over so you can enjoy the jokes - and the laughter! - again and again. For those people who would never consider picking up a book written by Ellen DeGeneres because they do not approve of, or agree with, her lifestyle choices, all I can say is that you are missing a real treat! Ellen has such a funny way of looking at things in life and explaining them! I guess that's why her talk show has won so many awards. I love Ellen, and I love this book!
