Publisher's Summary

Imagine postponing an interview with Fidel Castro to take your daughter to her first day of kindergarten? That's exactly what Maria Shriver did. As a woman who has mastered the balancing act between career and parenting, she shares the lessons she has learned along the way in this audio program. With the tone of a trusting and trusted friend, Shriver boldly touches on such subjects as: the price we pay for giving in to our fears, as well as the relief we feel when we finally face them; the humiliation of swallowing our ego so that we can learn from an abusive experience; the rewards of taking risks and the pain of failure; the joy of finding someone we can love and the limitations of every relationship; how it's never too late to tap the wisdom of others, even our own parents; and the importance of taking what we do seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. Ten Things I Wish I'd Known - Before I Went Out into the Real World was expanded from Shriver's acclaimed College of the Holy Cross commencement address.

Terrific Listen!

I just finished this book and made my husband listen to the first part. Besides knowing Maria's name, family, Arnold, and her TV personality....I really found I knew very little about her. She's a very brilliant and hard working woman and NOT a "spoiled Kennedy kid!" The list of "Ten Things" is excellent and things I wish I would have known too. I have two neices graduating from high school this year and plan to buy copies of this book for both of them. A great, but short (2:30) listen!

A little wordy and boring

What disappointed you about Ten Things I Wish I'd Known - Before I Went Out into the Real World?

seems like common sense

Would you ever listen to anything by Maria Shriver again?

maybe

How could the performance have been better?

less descriptions

Any additional comments?

sure some of the advice was good but a little redunant!
