Preacher’s daughter. Pop phenomenon. Reality TV pioneer. Billion-dollar fashion mogul. Jessica Simpson has been all these things. And whether America’s Sweetheart, a media headline, or a weight-joke punchline, people relate to her honesty. Now, guided by the journals she's kept since age fifteen, Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. With every page brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity, Open Book is as inspiring as it is entertaining.
“This is my story,” Jessica Simpson writes. “I’m not afraid of it anymore.”
This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didn’t want to lie.
Jessica couldn’t be honest with her readers if she wasn’t honest with herself first. Now, she’s ready to tell her truth, truths she’s never shared with the world before.
In her memoir, she invites readers to take her hand as she retraces the steps of a remarkable journey, examining the childhood foundation that blessed her with the compassion to help others, but also cursed her with an almost crippling need to please.
First celebrated for her voice, she became one of the most talked about women in the world, whether for music and fashion, her relationship struggles, or as a walking blonde joke. But now, instead of being talked about, Jessica is doing the talking. Here, she tells her full story, and with total honesty reveals the soul of so many pop-culture moments — “chicken or fish,” “Daisy Duke,” "football jinx," “mom jeans,” “sexual napalm . . .” and more. Warm and funny, Open Book is an opportunity to laugh and cry with an old friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, just as she has finally created hers.
