From America's most beloved comedic actress and the star of Desperate Housewives comes a personal, heartfelt, and often very funny manifesto on life, love, and the lessons we all need to learn, and unlearn, on the road to happiness.

Teri Hatcher secured her place in America's heart when she stood up to accept her Golden Globe for Best Actress and declared herself a has-been on national television. That moment showcased her down-to-earth, self-deprecating style, and her frank openness about the ups and downs she's experienced in life and work.

But what the world might not have seen that night is that Teri's self-acceptance is the hard-won effort of a single mother with all the same struggles most women have to juggle: life, love, bake sale cookies, and dying cats. Now, in the hope that her foibles and insights might inspire and motivate other women, Teri opens up about the little moments that have sustained her through good times and bad.

From the everyday (like the importance of letting your daughter spill her macaroni so she knows it's okay to make mistakes) to the rare (a rendezvous with a humpback whale, and no, he was not a suitor), the message at the heart of Burnt Toast, that happiness and success are choices that we owe it to ourselves to make, is sure to resonate with women everywhere.

    " I enjoyed this book. I was not sure getting into it, but I did enjoy it. It made me realize I deserve more than what I give myself. I am always so focused on my family and others, that I often give myself the "Burnt Toast". "

    " Kind of boring-- she is corny.. and if I heard about "burnt toast" one more time I thought I was going to throw the book-- did have a few good stories and insight to the life of a "star". "

    " Teri Hatcher wrote in her book about learning how to slow down in life and not let it pass you by. Her ups and downs in her relationships and in her career. She tries to think outside the box when teaching her daughter life's lessons. The beginning starts with taking care of yourself. Liking yourself enough to put healthy foods into your body and not overindulge. "

    " I finished this book because I felt like I needed to be nice to the author, who seemed to be trying really, really hard. I acknowledge that that was a pretty silly reason. "
