Imagine postponing an interview with Fidel Castro to take your daughter to her first day of kindergarten? That's exactly what Maria Shriver did. As a woman who has mastered the balancing act between career and parenting, she shares the lessons she has learned along the way in this audio program. With the tone of a trusting and trusted friend, Shriver boldly touches on such subjects as: the price we pay for giving in to our fears, as well as the relief we feel when we finally face them; the humiliation of swallowing our ego so that we can learn from an abusive experience; the rewards of taking risks and the pain of failure; the joy of finding someone we can love and the limitations of every relationship; how it's never too late to tap the wisdom of others, even our own parents; and the importance of taking what we do seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. Ten Things I Wish I'd Known - Before I Went Out into the Real World was expanded from Shriver's acclaimed College of the Holy Cross commencement address. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a perfect gift for any graduate! Maybe it's even better for parents to read and hand down to their children. "

    " Before The Lecture by Randy Pausch came along, Maria Shriver was dishing out advice on life. I think everyone can benefit from reading this book because Maria makes several good points. My favorite one being about laughter and how it is always important to have it so you can survive what life throws at you. "

    " Ok, I guess it's sort of "corny" or whatever. But I loved this book. It's worth reading... once. I just really like Maria Shriver, and I like her advice. And I wouldn't mind having her hair. But not her husband :) "
