Having watched Ellen's standup for the past 15 years or so, this book is so true to her. Her goofy nature, her ramblings, her self-deprecating humor, her screwball imagination, it's all typical Ellen. I don't think readers should expect an autobiography, I think they should expect typical Ellen humor. I don't expect everyone to like this book, but I read this entire book on a long bus ride once and I was laughing so hard, the lady next to me thought I was crying. This book is for true Ellen fans, and anyone who wants a good laugh. For those looking for an in depth analysis of Ellen's life, look elsewhere. This is 100% pure Ellen. This book is mostly fictional. It doesn't pretend to be real. Those people who read this book and find it unfunny or confusing are obviously attuned to a different type of humor. This book should be read if you want a totally goofy good time. Yes, of course it rambles. So does Ellen, she always has. This book is Ellen's humor and her personality in a neat little package. I just wish she would write more!

Irresistible-nonsensed-nonsense!
GREAT book. GREAT sense of humor. GREAT author. Everyone who understands and likes E. DeGeneres' type of humor will love her book.
As for me, I think I liked chapter 13 the most ... on second thought though, I think I liked her reaction to the "mother, father, and two little baby deer lit by the reddish glow of the setting sun" the most ... no wait - I also liked the "How to act like the perfect idiot" (and don't we all naturally do?), as a matter of fact. And the part about the gum wasn't bad either. Doing a "dog/cat/"what-was-it-goats?neighborhoodchildren? - race" - well, I've thought about that before, too. And there was that other story about Ellen getting into ... blah, blah, blah, blah ...
Anyway, my point ... and, to put it in a nutshell, I do have one, too (*g*)- is: this book is not only a good one. It's also even funny. VERY funny.
Thanks Ellen. I luved it! When are you gonna write your next 60,000 words???

For anybody who likes the TV show 'Ellen' it is almost certain that they will love this book. It is written with humour and in a style that makes you feel you cannot put it down, although at points it is impossible to read due to laughing so much! The best chapter, and the one I feel really makes the book, is 'The Plane Truth' which draws incredibly witty and relevant observations to hilarious scenarios! It shows Ellen DeGeneres to have an amazing talent for what she does and I would recommend this book to ANYONE.

Ellen Degeneres is the funniest comedic performer to ever
grace the stage, and now bookshelves. Her book, "My Point...
and I do have one" is not your typical book written by
comedians. Ellen has not written this book to tell you how
much she loves her family, nor has she written it to tell
you all about the hard times she's had in her life, she
wrote it to bring you extreme joy, and hours of endless
laughter. When I first read this book in November of last
year I had only heard of Ellen from an HBO Comedy Showcase,
and I knew then that she was extremely funny. I borrowed
the book from a friend and went into my room and lay down on
my bed. I began to read it and before even finishing the
first chapter, and began laughing, hard. Laughing so hard
in fact that tears began streaming down my eyes. My mother
ran to my door and began knocking to ask what was wrong.
She thought I was crying I was laughing so hard. In her
book Ellen looks at the little things in life, like what
your teachers and friends thought of you when you were
growing up. What it is like to have a sister or brother
who is favoured. She deals with all of the issues, such
as wearing fur, in the funniest manner possible. She
does not tell about her life, at least not in an auto-
biographical manner. She looks at the little things in life
that we never take time to notice and she notices them for us
and makes us laugh about them. No one will be able to read more than a page of this book without
breaking into glorious laughter. It is a very therapeutic
book which could bring even the most dismal of people out
of the dumps. READ IT!!!!

I picked this up not really familiar with Ellen's comedy, but I was truly a fan after reading it. It was so amusing by Ellen's querky personality and wonderful offbeat humor. She has a wonderful way of putting things that never failed to crack me up. Like most comedy books though, I must admit that I would probably find all of the material far more humorous and enjoyable if I saw a preformance; Ellen, like other comedians, is great in her field but no writer--her routine loses a bit of humor when transferred to paper. It is still an enjoyable book and laugh-at-able read. Recommended for the fans of Kate Clinton (and Kate Clinton recommended for those who become fans of this book.)

Ellen is a comedian, we all know that. Admit it, you have laughed at her comedy. Her book explains alot, and it makes you laugh. I enjoyed reading it because it has alot of good points. It explains how she made it on her own, she didnt need to be lifted up into stardom by someone else. She did it by herself. And this book tells the story with humor, information, and good lessons to be learned. I would really suggest this book to anyone who loves to laugh and loves to learn.

Als Fan von Ellen DeGeneres ist dieses Buch ein muß! Selten habe ich so gelacht. Ihr Talent Dinge so zu beschreiben, dass Sie einfach nur witzig sind, ist einmalig. Nicht umsonst hat sie den Titel "Funniest Person in America" erhalten. Jeder der Ellen aus der gleichnamigen Fernsehserie oder aus ihrer in den USA laufenden Talkshow kennt und Ihre Situationskomik und Witz versteht, sollte dieses Buch lesen.My Point...And I Do Have One

Das Buch "My point ... and I do have one" beweist Ellen DeGeneres' großes Talent als Stand Up Comedian. Schon von Anfang an zeigt sie, das eine Biographie nicht immer zu ernst und wahrheitsgetreu sein muß. Gerade das macht die Wirkung des Buches aus. Vom Beginn an wird man in seinen Bann gezogen. In der Hoffnung nicht gestört zu werden oder das Buch zur Seite legen zu müssen, ist man dem Witz und dem Charme dieses Buches erlegen.

The key to enjoying this book is very simple. If you understand Ellen's sense of humor you will love this book. It's that simple. Many readers just do not seem to understand this. Of course this book rambles, and doesn't have a plot. That's the entire point! Anyone who knows Ellen's sense of humor knows that her wacky, rambling, self-deprecating style is what makes her who she is. This book is splittingly funny, but I can guarantee that someone who isn't a major Ellen fan may have some problems. For fans of Ellen De Generes and her stand-up comedy (I have been a fan of hers for 15 years), this book is a delight. I am still waiting for her next book. This book is so funny, it will make you cry! HOWEVER! If you find yourself complaining about the style or plot, then Ellen's humor just isn't for you!
