Audiobook Review and Giveaway: Permission Slips by Sherri Shepherd (Ends 1/11) CLOSED

Monday, December 28, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Book Description
Covering topics such as "It's Jesus or Jail," "Marriage, the Hard Way," "Children: The Gift You Can't Give Back," and "All the Things I Don't Know...And All the Things I Definitely Do," stand-up comedienne, actress, and ABC's The View co-host Sherri Shepherd comically chronicles her struggles to keep up with the many roles-professional, wife, mother, daughter, and friend-that women must play in today's world. Sherri urges women to pursue their most important dreams and to never give up, but also lets listeners know that it's okay to give themselves "permission slips" when things don't always work out the way they want them to. As her many fans know, Sherri is never hesitant to speak from the heart, and her bubbly personality shines through in this delightful autobiography.

My Review
Sherri's tell-all autobiography is a endearing story - at times sad and at times hilarious - that had me smiling and laughing out loud. She openly recounts her mistakes and her struggles, her joys and sorrows. Her sense of humor shines through even when she shares personal humiliations and private disappointments. Sherri's thoughts on living with diabetes, being a single parent, and trying to keep everything up in the air - while giving herself a permission slip to focus on things that truly matter - is a funny yet inspiring account of her life. She sounds like the girlfriend many of us have - and possibly some of us wish we had - in our lives. The audio book version is read by Sherri herself and her comedic talent and expressive voice add a nice extra dimension to the text.
