Permission Slips: Every Woman's Guide To Giving Herself A Break MINI review

Permission Slips: Every Woman's Guide to Giving Herself a Break
Sherri Shepherd



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 let's readers 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.


I picked this book up at my local library yesterday and I devoured it. It was really good. Really funny too! Not only does Sherri in not so many words "girl you gotta lighten up" she also gives us permission to give ourselves permission slips when things don't go the way we want them too. Sherri was really open and honest about her life, her faith, her career, you name it it's in there....ALL the "gory" details.
