Publisher Description

“Thursday morning.

One hundred pounds overweight, no man in sight, and rounding the bend to 57 years old—a full-blown catastrophe.”

What happens when you realize you’ve had the career of your dreams, but you don’t have the life of your dreams? This was the stark reality facing Sheri Salata when she left her twenty-year stint at The Oprah Winfrey Show, Harpo Studios and the OWN network. She had dedicated decades to her dream job, and loved (almost) every minute of it, but had left the rest of her life gathering dust on the shelf.

After years of telling other people’s makeover stories, Sheri decided to “produce” her own life transformation. And this meant revisiting her past, excavating its lessons, and boldly reimagining her future. In this audiobook, she invites readers along for the ride—detoxing in the desert, braving humiliation at Hollywood’s favorite fitness studio, grappling with losses, reinventing friendships, baring her soul in sex therapy, and more. Part cautionary tale, part middle-of-life rallying cry, Sheri’s stories offer profound inspiration for personal renewal.

I found a friend and kindred spirit!

I absolutely love this book and am sad that I’ve almost finished it.

I really enjoyed hearing about some of Sherri’s trials and transcendences, but was really surprised to discover how much we have in common. I feel like I found a new best friend. Where has Sherri been all my life?!

I definitely recommend this book!

A Beautiful YES

Hooked from the first chapter, I stole as many hours as I could in a few short days to gobble up each comforting word. The delightful life story-telling recounting the phases of her impressive life with infections honesty is only capped by the lessons she conveys as she sums up each fascinating chapter. As a woman in her 50’s I hail the book as an unspoken permission slip to see love and purpose in each moment through our thoughts and actions. It is clearly written with love and it surges through with pure delight.

A wish for deeper dive

I wish the author had stayed with the topic of the parents failing health because her writing for those pages was fantastic and clearly deeply personal. I’m underwhelmed by the name dropping and hob nobbing tales with famous people, and the paraphrasing from books that have been turned into memes long ago. I was hoping for more but sadly I cannot recommend this book at all.
