Elisabeth Hasselbeck is likely wanting you to take a little time to enjoy her view in her new book out Tuesday. 

The one-time shoe designer turned "Survivor" competitor turned talk-show host revisits her trying days on "The View" and her firing, as well as anecdotes about her former co-hosts in her latest literary effort, "Point of View: A Fresh Look at Work, Faith, and Freedom" (WaterBrook, pp. 224). Hasselbeck, who has celiac disease, previously penned "The G-Free Diet" and "Deliciously G-Free."

Hasselbeck, 41, holds nothing back when recounting her dismissal from ABC's morning program, which she joined in 2003. She writes that in March 2013 things "had begun to feel unusual," citing a number of guest hosts trickling through.
