Title: Seriously....I'm Kidding
Author: Ellen Degeneres'
Sometimes the greatest things are the most embarrassing." Ellen Degeneres' winning, upbeat candor has made her show one of the most popular, resilient and honored daytime shows on the air. (To date, it has won no fewer than 31 Emmys.) Seriously... I'm Kidding, Degeneres' first book in eight years, brings us up to date about the life of a kindhearted woman who bowed out of American Idol because she didn't want to be mean. Lively; hilarious; often sweetly poignant.
Is there a book you read for a heart laugh? For me this is one such book.I usually love a paper version over the digital version when I like a book but with this one is best enjoyed if you could listen to her voice.This book is not the usual celebrity memoir but her take on many different topic ranging from organizing, honesty, bucket list, having a dream, her talk show, making a pros and cons list, time management,environment, having a pet, losing focus. On a personal note she talks about the time she came out, instances of her moments with her wife, her decision of not having a baby hosting Emmys and not to give up easily, though they are described on a lighteernote with a sense of humor. Like her show the book is happy and positive just like her show.On a final note she says that life is all about balance , the good and the bad ,the highs and the lows .The thing everyone should realize is that key to happiness is by being happy by yourself and for yourself because sometimes you might lose it all so unless you are your reason to be happy ,there would always be something or someone to throw sadness on you.The audiobook has extra bites that you would miss on a print.
The book would never disappoint if you are her fan because her super fun spirit just brightens up the whole mood like magic.For me this book like a therapy on a not so great day.
