This medley of comic essays is satisfyingly rambling as DeGeneres muses about the familiar and fantastic, from toilet paper to the conjectured advantages of living in prison. The author's wry, deadpan reading gives this audio the nuance and spark of stand-up comedy. Although the book inspires more smiles than laughs, its energetic good spirits provide the same brief, pleasant diversion one might get from sharing an ice cream sundae with a chatty, opinionated friend.

Entertainment Weekly DeGeneres is in top form with her second collection of kooky observations....Her strongest assets -- a-hard won dignity and softly skewed worldview -- are on chuckle-inducing display throughout.
