"Toast. You know when you're trying to make it and you just can't get it right? It's too light or too soft, then totally burnt. Are you the kind of person who tries to scrape off the black? Or do you smother it with jam to hide the taste? Do you throw it away, or do you just eat it? Up until now, I ate the burnt toast ... then I hit forty."
America's favourite housewife writes about taking control of life and claiming what you deserve, using her own story of ups, downs, and finally, success to inspire readers to follow their own dreams.
Women are too often expected to make sacrifices for the benefit of others, like eating the burnt piece of toast so that everyone else can have more appealing slices. With anecdotes from her own career and family life, Teri Hatcher will use this metaphor to inspire women to take control of all aspects of their lives - their looks, their careers, their motherhood - so they can move forward and claim what they truly deserve with confidence.
'Burnt Toast' is the heartfelt, funny, poignant and inspiring account of Teri’s jagged route to happiness. Teri reveals her life in unexpected ways, in the hopes of keeping other women from eating the burnt toast, and explains why you'll never get a second chance if you don't open yourself up to the possibility.
