I love her on her television show and could just hear her voice as I read through this entertaining, funny and poignant "guide to life."
Judge Karen's style isn't preachy ... she comes from a place of passion to make the world a better place any way she can.
Her revealing, personal stories and " a ha!" moments only help make this book a truly "real" guide for anyone looking for a pick-me-up on the rocky road of life!

I gave a copy to my niece and my Mom and both found it inspirational and entertaining.

Total must-read.

I picked up Stay in Your Lane while I was in a reading slump. This is an excellent book and will make you laugh, cry and go hmmm.... The personal stories of Judge Karen are what make the book. You will not be disappointed.

Judge Karen does an excellent job at reminding us of the simple and conventional messages for living a profound life. "Stay in Your Lane," is as much about triumph as it is about struggle. Although life happens to all of us and has a way of jolting us from time to time, Judge Karen, with wit and wisdom, offers sound advice for shifting your life into overdrive.
Strap yourself in and get ready for the ride of your life!

This book is super fantastic!!! Just read it on my new Kindle. Read til 2 a.m. In fact, I actually fell asleep reading it. Couldn't put it down!! Passing on a copy to my favorite English teacher at a local high school for her seniors to read before leaving high school. So much wonderful sharing going on in this book that these students will be able to relate to.

kudos to Karen

This book is great for a 15-year-old! I love this book! Judge Karen really knows what she's talking about. Much like her television show, she brings common sense into her book! If I didn't make it clear before, I'm 15, I enjoy reading this book.

Sometimes we forget that stars are just like you and I, while reading this book I laughed at some of the things I can relate to from her past, I usually do no write in my books but there were a lot of interesting quotes that I loved and had to highlight.

Format: Hardcover
In Judge Karen's book, "Stay In Your Lane: Judge Karen's Guide to Living Your Best Life," she offers almost the same insights as on her show, along with making the book a delightful and entertaining read.

"Stay In Your Lane" is a must-read for anyone who seeks something different outside of the average self-help book that can give great advice, simple truths, and common sense, yet lets the reader walk away with a can-do attitude that lasts long after "Stay In Your Lane's" final chapter.

A brilliant, no-nonsense work, "Stay In Your Lane" will help readers outline the paths of their own lives without sounding condescending. If you like Judge Karen's Court, you'll also love this book. We can all learn a little something from Judge Karen's wisdom.
