Permission Slips 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 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.

My Review:

I found this opportunity from The Product Review Place and Hachette Books to review Permission Slips and I will admit that I don't watch The View nor have ever heard of Sherri.  I read the book and immediately laughed both inside at times and outside as she's genuinely funny and made me laugh at her humor and the accuracy on so much of what she wrote about.  Although she has had to endure disappointment and pain, like us all, she brings the humor out and allows you to relate to her experiences.  It was more touching for me because I had been there and the things she wrote about were spot on.

The title of the book is the theme as it's really a creative way to handle life and the guilt women in particular apply to themselves at all levels.  The fact that Sherri tunes into the differences between how men and women react and feel was an eye opener to allow myself to know I'm not alone.  She tackles probably one of the biggest issues women endure and that's guilt.  If you want to laugh, find sympathy and enjoy the ability to relate to another woman and feel good about it, read Permission Slips.  Allowing yourself excuses every now and then is a great idea.

I would highly recommend this book not only to women but to men.  I think it's a good book to show men how women are truly different and why we are different.  Her examples are witty, downright correct and allows you to overcome and rise above. 

Don't miss out on the laughs!
