Summary
Five years ago Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer because she believed she couldn't be authentic with her readers if she wasn't fully honest with herself first. Now she examines her life: blessed with the compassion to help others but also burdened with an almost crippling need to please. First celebrated for her voice, she became famous for music and fashion, her relationship struggles-- and as a walking blonde joke. Here she shares the wisdom and inspirations she has learned, and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture clichés. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
An unstinting memoir by the pop artist and fashion icon traces the story of her life before and after fame, the role of faith in her achievements and her difficult decision to step out of the limelight
