Seriously...I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres - Audiobook Review

Amazon Description:
I've experienced a lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?
My Review:
I was glad that the audiobook was read by Ellen. She infused humor in just about every chapter. There was a lot of inspirational words of wisdom about things like healthy eating, yoga and gaining the confidence to be yourself. Those parts were written quite well and Ellen's reading added to the genuine tone of the advice.
There were a few chapters that were completely nonsensical and didn't belong in this book. They were not funny, inspirational or even about Ellen. They added nothing but pages to this book.
I have not read the actual book and I don't think I will. The audiobook was okay but I don't believe the humor would be translated well in print.
I rate Seriously...I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres 3 stars. I would recommend it to someone looking for a general self-help book that's not too "preachy".
