    I enjoyed this book, I related to this book, I learned from this book and I think it's a great tool for women!!!! Especially.....young women and young moms that need some guidance on old school life! And there are soooooo many women who weren't taught the value of the simple things in life. That don't know how great it is to sit down and enjoy a meal every night with your kids....you don't realize the life lessons and personal benefits for every ...

    At the end of the book I felt full of love and inspired. I found this book quite honest and tricky at the same time; so open and somehow closed; so practical and hard to adapt if you don't have additional help.Overall, it is just lessons that Gisele had throughout her life that helped, guided her to where and who she is now. This is her story. And she is not saying follow me, she says - build your own life the way you want it to be, step by step....
  • Sheri Hooton
    I would give this book probably a 3.7 or 3.8.There was a lot of good stuff in here. From the ways Gisele's upbringing has shaped her and how she overcame some of her toughest struggles. I really appreciated all of that. I will say something that bothered me though, and if you don't identify as Christian then you probably won't care... but she talks about her Catholic upbringing and how one day she asked one of her teachers, how could the bible sa...

    I read an advanced reading copy of this book, and while it's not the best book I read by a famous public figure, I did enjoy reading about some of her tips and tricks regarding self care and meditation. I still think that the book was in many ways redundant and repetitive. Prior to reading this book, I didn't know much if anything about Gisele Bündchen, besides the fact she was and still is a very hyped-up super model.

    Que mulher maravilhosa! Sem dúvida, é muito inspirador ler esse livro e conhecer um pouco mais do lado pessoal da Gisele. Mesmo depois de tantas vitórias e sucesso, ela continua sendo a mesma pessoa simples de sempre. Adorei saber das histórias da infância dela, ver o carinho que tem pela família e pelo nosso país. As fotos que ela compartilha desses momentos são a coisa mais linda! Se alguém acha que vai encontrar imagens de catálogos ...
  • Yoric
    Simplicity is what comes to mind when reading this book.We may be surprised how much importance a model gave to "discipline" in her life.Her philosophy of life is nice to read, as it is more about being responsible, taking action, being positive, thankful...Then we realize her "success" in modeling was not by chance. But attitude, as other successful people usually state.Her 4 steps to success: Clarity, focus, dedication, humility.She did write t...
  • Kayo
    Author seems well grounded, despite the wealth and notoriety. Interesting book.
  • Devon
    Reading this book was like recharging my battery. I love the positive message and life affirming lessons that Gisele shares in an incredibly honest, straightforward way. This is not a book about modeling, but about an intelligent woman who has achieved great success, and the many important lessons she has learned along the way. There are many insights into her life that I think will change mine for the better. Most importantly, she shares how she...

    I throughly enjoyed the book. Her interpretation and experiences in life were interesting and thought provoking. A different kind of biography that gave you insight into her life past and present as well as a refreshing outlook on life. I came away inspired by her suggestions and viewpoints.
  • Traci Bild
    I was surprised by how good this book was, I really enjoyed it and it was full of practical information that is incredibly useful!
  • Nancy Safar
    Surprisingly a good readThis book was informative, back to basics, thoughtful and grounding, Gisele has her feet planted firmly in the ground and is an inspiration for all of us, notably women of all ages.
  • Kassandra Reinhardt
    Some good stuff in there but overall a bit bland..
  • Nellie
    An interesting book that I feel was written more for her children than s general audience.It is a semi-autobiography about super model, Gisele Büdchen. She was spotted in Brazil by a modeling scout at the age of 14. She moves to the big city of São Paulo.What was refreshing was how she managed to avoid all the pitfalls of starting her career at such a young age. Her parents instilled in her a strong sense of right and wrong. Gisele wanted to li...

    Gisele has been my favorite supermodel since I was fifteen (I’m twenty-three now). For eight whole years I compared myself to her, and I always fell short. God tried to remind me: “I made you to be your own person. I have a unique story just for you.” I didn’t listen to Him. To some, this book may just be a cool thing that a supermodel did, but for me, Gisele’s words were the key to freedom from wanting so bad to be her. I’m not white...
  • Jillian Leah
    2.5 Stars:Ho-hum! I was really excited to read her book, but found it came up short. It was written very conversationally, but a lot of it felt like bragging and boasting. She does not acknowledge her privilege - from being a fair-skinned Brazilian to having the time to pursue all of the personal development imaginable. I liked reading about her connection to family values and some of her day-to-day rituals. I had a huge problem with how she dism...
  • Yulia
    I didn’t expect anything from this book really, just bought it cause I love her personality a lot. And I had a big surprise! It’s such an easy and a beautiful read! This book is a very honest story of a woman and her struggles along the way. It resonated with me on so many levels! I know, some will say “it’s all been said before”, but I also think that a lot depends on HOW it’s said and if the story resonates with you, so it makes you...
  • Carolina Magalhaes
    I was drawn to this book because I read an article about it and I thought it was very brave of Gisele to talk about having panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. Most people go through tough times and it is really important to take the “bad” (wrong) idea people have from mental diseases (that happen, like the physical ones; and if addressed properly can be healed, like the physical ones).The whole book is a brave and loving statement of someone...
  • Liz Sergent
    I loved this book and appreciate Gisele Bundchen more. This book tells about Gisele's childhood, her modeling career, not so healthy eating when she was young and her love for her beloved dog Vida. I love that she will sometimes eat a cookie but husband Tom will not. This was great book and it makes me want to live a more meaningful life.
  • Dana Wing
    I enjoyed getting insight of woman with literally supermodel status. I am rating it 5 stars because I think book makes "take what you need, and leave the rest," very accessible. The profits of this book go to one of her organizations that support the environment. Something that is very dear her and a passion....I appreciate her talking the talk and walking the walk.
  • Nicole Harrison
    This book was meh. I didn’t hate it, but didn’t love it. I liked reading about her journey, but felt she wasn’t fully vulnerable. I liked the colored photos and I liked the story of her beloved dog (because it was truly the most vulnerable thing in the book). I read this book in one sitting and when I was done I just felt it was only okay.
  • Kim Nichols
    Very positive I like the insight into her life lessons and related to them so much it made me feel not alone as far as the anxiety part and surprised we had so much in common in life. Kudos for her love of the Earth and may hope she continues to teach and be protector of it.... we need more of them
  • Kristina
    One of the most inspiring booksI love this book because the author shares her lessons in so sincere and open way, that it inspires to make changes in my own life. We are all learners and nobody knows all the answers but her pieces of wisdom on how to live meaningful life with love and care definitely help to figure that out.
  • Mikki Phillips
    I just love her! She is an inspiration as a wife and mother. I found her to be very relatable and down to earth, and I have taken away some wonderful tips on mindfulness and being present in the moment.
  • Ricardo Da Silva Oliveira
    Gisele explains her own ways of keeping balance while handling modeling and family. A very good book about sticking to personal values and settling for well-being.
  • Masitah Kamalrudin
    One of the books that will always inspire me.
  • Lauren Camin-Calixto
    Gisele's book is a must-read. Her lessons are helpful for living a fulfilling life.
  • Sharlene Baldeo
    very insightful however i wish the audible was read by Gisele herself. Gisele did do the Introduction and it was awesome, but the book would have resignated with me more if it was in her voice.
  • Ana Paula
    Loved this book! It has many valuable lessons! It’s really honest.
