    Charred Toast!

    Teri's effort to teach was not accomplished. I was very disappointed because she went around her life in a disorganized manner. The writing did not flow, choppy and random stories made the reading a slow, damaged rollercoaster. She was inspired in her own thoughts but was unable to send a message across. If you are an actress then you can relate to her lifestyle but ordinary women don't earn a Golden Globe for telling their story. Teri, keep polishing your TV skills and you will be more successful!

    This book is Burnt Toast!

    Burnt Toast was 207 pgs of dribble. There was no flow and no point. I turned the pages with a renewed hope of the book actually saying anything of signifigance and was continually disappointed. I felt like I was served burnt toast with the purchase of this book. The 'philosophies' (if there were actually any) of this book could have fit on a pamphlet. (and cost alot less)

    Dull Read

    This book just proved that she needs some help! Yes, we probably all could relate to some parts, but the low self esteem was rampant in this book with very little, if any, good take aways from it.

    Good Effort

    A good effort by someone who doesn't write for a living. In a lot of cases though, the writing didn't seem to flow as easily as it could have. Perhaps the desire to complete the book for publishing is the reason for the rather choppy writing. If you're a Teri Hatcher fan and are interested in hearing about dating disasters and other random stories from her life, then it's a good read for you. Somehow though, I don't believe that the anecdotes really provide anything enlightening that will inspire anyone else. This book seems to be more of just a collection of stories that could be taken from the life of 'Jane Doe' in Anywhere, USA.
