"I've been Shirley's partner in radio for over ten years
now… I am amazed by how she manages to balance her personal and professional
life—especially as a single mother.
‘The Strawberry Letter' is one of our most popular features on the show. Shirley's advice is the more sensible approach, quite contrary to what my answers are…
You're gonna be able to take these letters and Shirley's experiences and advice and apply them to you daily lives, and I know it's going to work out really well for you as a result."
--Steve Harvey in the Foreword (pgs vii-viii)
