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.

    " How many times is it humanly possible to mention "The View" and your cheating husband? Well Sherri does it the entire book.. 300 pages of "I'm on The View" and my ex-husband is an A-Hole who cheating on me while I was pregnant and then got the other woman pregnant. It was just too much it obscured the rest of her life story. "
