Ellen DeGeneres published her first book of comic essays, the #1 bestselling "My Point... And I Do Have One", way back in 1996. Not one to rest on her laurels, the witty star of stage and screen has since dedicated her life to writing a hilarious new book. That book is this book.
After years of painstaking, round-the-clock research, surviving on a mere twenty minutes of sleep a night, and collaborating with lexicographers, plumbers, and mathematicians, DeGeneres has crafted a work that is both easy to use and very funny. Along with her trademark ramblings, "The Funny Thing Is..." contains hundreds of succinct insights into her psyche and offers innovative features including:

* More than 50 000 simple, short words arranged in sentences that form paragraphs.

* Thousands of observations on everyday life - from terrible fashion trends to how to handle seating arrangements for a Sunday brunch with Paula Abdul, Diane Sawyer and Eminem.

* All twenty-six letters of the alphabet.
Sure to make you laugh, "The Funny Thing Is..." is an indispensable reference for anyone who knows how to read or wants to fool people into thinking they do.

Ellen DeGeneres first book, "My Point... And I Do Have One", was an instant national bestseller that pent more than six months on the "New York Times" bestseller list. DeGeneres won an Emmy Award, a Peabody Award, and a People's Choice Award for her work as a writer and actress on her television series "Ellen". In September 2003, DeGeneres launched her own daytime talk show. In its first season, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" won four Daytime Emmys, including the award for Best Talk Show.

Utdrag ur boken:
The fact is, I'd rather write a book than read a book. It's like reading, only you get paid for it. Otherwise, it has all the same elements. I don't know what's on the next page. It's suspensful, yet I can control where it goes. It's like interactive reading. Besides, I've already read books. A lot of them. Well, definitely more than seven.

En perfekt bok när man är lite nere, inte orkar läsa länge, inte vill sätta sig in i en historia eller när man bara vill ha lite roligt. Ellen DeGeneres sätter tummen på spiken gång på gång när hon filosoferar kring vardagsbeteenden hos sig själv och andra. Det är fantastiskt kul att läsa.
