TV star Valerie Bertinelli became a Jenny Craig spokeswoman after she ballooned to 172 pounds and failed at various diets. This is her account of that journey, and the other challenges she's tackled as an actress, wife of rock star/addict Eddie Van Halen, mother, and maturing woman. Now 49, she shares the perspective she's gained with humor and pathos that is tastefully constrained for a Hollywood actress. Many women will appreciate her insights on self-worth and weight control. Narrator Cassandra Campbell owns this life story so completely that listeners will swear it's Bertinelli speaking—directly from the heart to listeners everywhere who have similar life challenges. Campbell’s appealing performance makes this a satisfying audio memoir. T.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
