Reading this book is a little bit like watching Ellen on television; she writes, about anything and everything. I read this book and heard her voice. The book is somewhat funny -- chuckle funny -- more so in some places than others. I would describe the nature / tone of the book as 'frivolous drivel' -- but in a good and enjoyable way. She takes a no holds barred approach in the subjects she talks about, and I enjoyed the honest and unsanctimonious wit. It is a light and fun read.
