I love her sense of humor - unlike many comedians these days, she manages to be funny without being vulgar or insulting other people. She's happy with who she is and where she is in her life but she doesn't gloat. She jokes a few times about being a Covergirl spokesperson, but I think mostly because it was not anything she ever aspired to or expected. A few chapters are just plain silly, and I enjoyed those too.
The book is not pure comedy though, it's as much about positive thinking and encouraging you to do whatever makes you happy (unless you're a serial killer).
Because it was an audiobook and I didn't take the time to bookmark any of the funny passages, I can't really relay any of her funny lines. I'd probably mess up the punch lines Suffice it to say, if you like Ellen, definitely give it a shot. I had planned on listening to it on one of my long runs, but ended up getting a nasty cold thanks to Little Man, so just listened to it in the car and while doing laundry. I have to say chores and errands are much more fun when you have a comedian talking to you.
