"These were just things on my mind and some ideas of ways I could be better. Maybe it helps you too. If not, pass this book on!"
This book is Whoopi's opinion on a whole range of what she perceives to be irritations. She knows that she isn't alone in her irritation. She doesn't say that you're wrong if you disagree. She does use humor, she is irreverent, and she is also serious in ALL of it. She doesn't come across as perfect in her own conduct, in fact, she states more than once that she most definitely isn't. She finds those things irritating in other people and in herself. She does not deny that she is guilty of the same things that she is complaining about.
I am a big Whoopi fan, and I could hear her saying these things in my head while I was reading them. The language that she writes is the language that you hear coming out of her mouth every day on TV etc. Whoopi addresses issues that happen and that we don't seem to notice anymore because they have become so commonplace, they've become a habit. She talks about things like cutting your toenails or picking your nose on the bus or train on the way to work. She doesn't like the word 'stupid' and yet doesn't have a problem with people using certain swear words, and why. How you can swear at someone without actually using the words aloud, just thinking them can have an effect. Things you could consider saying when you've been put on the spot and don't want to hurt someone other people's feelings.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I did find myself chuckling at what she says, how she phrases things, and the irony in some of her statements. This book uses events in her life as examples, and it is not her memoirs. If you are buying this book expecting to read only her comedy, expecting to laugh aloud, you'll be disappointed. If you asked me to describe this book in two words, I would say "humorous" and "thoughtful".
As for The Honorable Whoopie Goldberg's "IS IT JUST ME? Or Is It Nuts Out There?", this book is well-worth buying! It even has quizzes in various sections and a scoring & meaning-of-your-scores in the back, along with a Glossary.
Truly one VERY FUNNY & Spot-On Book to have around. This definitely is one book I will re-read. Actually, I bought it for nephews & nieces & other friends, and read it before mailing one of the books out and LOVED IT enough to buy myself a copy.
Buy it, Read & Soak Up Enjoyment & Ponderings, & Pass It On if you can part with it!
I cannot believe that anyone would be so egotistical as to believe that she could write this little "instruction manual" for life, explaining to absolutely everyone exactly how they should live, function, and behave in virtually every instance.
I think that over the years, her platform as a talking head on The View has given her the illusion that her opinions are far more valuable than they actually are. The more I read, the more I dislike the book, and as a result, the less I like the person who has written it. What a shame.
