Publisher's Summary

Don't Jump chronicles a woman's quest to find her place and purpose amidst sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and celebrity. It's a story of unfulfilled potential, addiction, and bad behavior. Ultimately, it's a story of redemption, told with levity and a wicked sense of fun. Don't Jump takes us backstage and off-screen with a world famous athlete, rockers, movie stars, and some of the biggest names in comedy. A searing and wickedly funny female perspective, it's an inside view from an outsider. From the kings of late night, to America's number-one shock jock, to the top sitcom earners of all time, we glimpse their humanity, previously unexposed. Smart, sassy, and sexy, Andi projects confidence and success. But beneath her cool exterior, she knows she's "simple, boring, and fat". Seeking solutions for her disintegrating marriage, tumultuous show biz ups and downs, her slow and painful recovery, and mid-life transition, Don't Jump explores Andi's journey to make her life count.

I Bust Out Laughing Many Times Listening To This

If you could sum up Don't Jump: Sex, Drugs, Rock 'N Roll... And My Fucking Mother in three words, what would they be?

Funny, Heart-felt, Engaging


Who was your favorite character and why?

Andi-as she is the main character, but you get inside her head and you feel as if you are part of the story. I love any book that I get confused in what is my life and there's...as the writing and story telling is so good, it feels like you are actually there.


What about Vicki Abelson’s performance did you like?

Her voice, her tone, her fluctuations. I have listened to many books that have no personality from the narrators voice. She is such a wonderful speaker. I walk a lot and this book made me walk extra miles so I could finish chapters. So I have Vicki to thank for helping me to get in better shape.


Any additional comments?

This book was such a fun and rewarding read. Since I read a lot of non-fiction, it's nice to read a book with depth and story to it. I loved listening to every moment of it. I can't wait to dive into her next work. She is extremely talented and I loved every moment of the ride.

Amazing story told with feeling by the author

As a busy mom, with a full-time job and a long commute, I don't get a lot of time to sit and read. I absolutely loved having Vicki Abelson do this to me on my way to work, and home again. In fact I had to just walk around listening to it to finish up. The central love story was moving and so heartbreaking at times. The ups and downs of the whole adventure : Gripping. And the ending, very satisfying
