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.

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.

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.

I believe this book is for ages 17 - 25 or the ones that just don't get it. She uses real life issues to make a point. I enjoyed. It was jus a little late for me. All the things in the book I already had learned

I love it because it sounds like she sitting on the bench just having a good conversation! I'm glad Judge gives you the option of ebook because you pretty much are able to read the book right now. This has gone beyond my expectations by being very user friendly!
