Publisher's Summary

A number one New York Times Best Seller

Beloved actress, Food Network personality, and New York Times best-selling author Valerie Bertinelli reflects on life at 60 and beyond.

Behind the curtain of her happy on-screen persona, Valerie Bertinelli’s life has been no easy ride, especially when it comes to her own self-image and self-worth. She waged a war against herself for years, learning to equate her value to her appearance as a child star on One Day at a Time and punishing herself in order to fit into the unachievable Hollywood mold. She struggled to make her marriage to Eddie Van Halen - the true love of her life - work, despite all the rifts the rock-star lifestyle created between them. She then watched her son follow in his father’s footsteps, right up onto the stage of Van Halen concerts, and begin his own music career. And like so many women, she cared for her parents as their health declined and saw the roles of parent and child reverse. 

Through mourning the loss of her parents, discovering more about her family’s past, and realizing how short life really is when she and her son lost Eddie, Valerie finally said, “Enough already!” to a lifelong battle with the scale and found a new path forward to joy and connection. Despite hardships and the pressures of the media industry to be something she’s not, Valerie is, at last, accepting herself: she knows who she is, has discovered her self-worth, and has learned how to prioritize her health and happiness over her weight. With an intimate look into her insecurities, heartbreaks, losses, triumphs, and revelations, Enough Already is the story of Valerie’s sometimes humorous, sometimes raw, but always honest journey to love herself and find joy in the everyday, in family, and in the food and memories we share.

“This thoughtful, bighearted book is sure to be a hit with Bertinelli fans and those with an appetite for stories of hard-won self-acceptance. A warmly intimate memoir.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“In a series of brutally frank essays, Bertinelli looks back on the emotional struggles and triumphs of her life. By turns raw and inspiring, this contains a little bit of wisdom for everyone.” (Publishers Weekly)

Laughed. Sobbed. Reflected

I shouldn't write this at this point in time, but I am going to. This was just an incredible book. It spoke to me on many levels and her stories are reflective of the human experience. We all struggle with different things, and it surprised me how I was able to make connections to my own life. There are some movies you need to see on the "big" screen, and there are some books you need to experience as an audiobook. This is one of those books. You can feel the emotions and it makes it just that much better. I do not have the space or time to hit on all of the wonderful bits of this book that make you stand in your kitchen or sit in the car and just think. But trust me, they are there. And to hear the discussions about loss and grief. it just broke my heart. Not just for Valerie, but for myself. Her book is raw and transparent. But for me, it spoke to the shared human experience. And to be present in our own lives. I didn't want it to end.

Calming

This book is wonderful, I love Valerie’s voice it is very calming and appropriately projects her message.
Her story made me sad and so happy, I can totally relate!
I do wish she had left her political views out, however, that would be my one and only very small critique.
Good luck Valerie! You’ve got this!!

Great Book

I think all women can relate to so much from this book. I can also relate that my mom also can’t get a break, suffering back pain and losing her sight she can’t paint and sew anymore. This made her cry which made me cry. So I can relate to so much and learn from this book. Thank you for sharing all of this with us!

Love it

I loved how real and personal Valerie is with this book. I especially love that it was her voice in the audible book. It really made a difference in feeling what she feels. There were so many relatable stories. Despite her fame , she comes off as a very real , very honest and very grounded person. She’s been in my life through TV for my whole 54 years of life . I especially thank her for turning me on to her sons music. Wolfe is incredibly talented. I’m a fan.

What I needed to hear…

Every word you shared has been part of me in my lifetime as well. I’m caring for my mom who is 86 and I’m already thinking about the grief I will experience when she is gone. You give a hope through that…
The book is refreshing, soulful, fun, and loving.

Thank you!!!! Fabulous read!!!!

Enough Already

I read this book already knowing about the couple and son. What I learned was the lives that they lived where not just social media coverage but beautiful memories that were shared with us. Each life intertwined living together and apart. I loved the vulnerability that Valerie shared. About their lives and how the Love and Happiness was still shared with everyone. The experiences that they shared.
I felt a warmth after reading this. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Disappointed

Let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of Valerie’s, and Van Halen. I loved her first two books but this one just came across as a self help/motivational type . I did enjoy the personal stories when they were there.
I wasn’t sure if the author was trying to convince herself or the audience that she was really happy and had found joy. I just felt sad for her. I hope she finds it.

Love and kindness ♥️

This book is such a beautiful listen. Its timeline of the last 2yrs of global pandemic lends its narrative even more towards the message of life...forgiveness of self and the ultimate power of love and kindness. Thank you Valerie, I loved it.
