Proof, were it needed, that I will read just about anything. And in the world of celebrity autobiographies, will not only read anything but will enjoy it as well!

I have always loved Valerie Bertinelli,(I never missed an episode of "One Day at a Time")and she comes across in her book pretty much the way she always has on TV. Written with real warmth and honesty (tons about her difficult marriage to Eddie Van Halen and really written from a place of kindness), I found her struggles with compulsive overeating and obsessing about her weight to be very easy to relate to. I was worried the book would be one long Jenny Craig ad but the diet plan doesn't even get mentioned until the last section of the book. An enjoyable read for fans of Valerie. Mackenzie Phillips, your book is calling...
