"I've experienced a whole 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?"

Fluff. Pleasant fluff, but fluff nonetheless.
Narrated? Definitely. I enjoy Ellen's patter and I'm a big fan of hers. The performance was the saving grace of these three hours.
Written? Well... that's another story. There's nothing to this book. There are a few funny bits, of course, but probably fewer than you'd get watching one episode of her show (or binge watching clips on YouTube). She also tries to bring forward her thoughts on positivity and self-worth, but never gets beyond the surface or says anything that couldn't fit on a greeting card.
Its like she tried to write a memoir, a self-help book, and a comedy book all at once, but didn't trust her audience to stick with her for more than a few hours. What you're left with is a disappointing jack-of-all trades with no depth or direction.
I wouldn't absolutely rule out another book by her, but I'll be very suspicious of future offerings, which is a shame. I know she can do better.
