    I've always liked Gisele because she's pretty, she loves the environment, and she dated Leonardo diCaprio in his prime. She was a celebrity before social media made celebrity more accessible, and reading this book made me really think about the mystique of supermodels (which, in my opi...

    I love Gisele and still love Gisele... but her book was a reminder how imperfect us mere mortals are compared to her supermodel, superhuman, celebrity status. It also came off to me as very preachy - as though where she is, IS exactly where we want to end up. I mean she DOES have the i...

    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 ...

    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 impor...

    I love this book. I will probably try to read it again in 5 years because it?s one of those books that can affect you at every stage of life. She has a keen awareness about herself, society, and the earth and she tries to impress upon the reader the importance of knowing how to be aw...

    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 viewp...

    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...

    I have never really paid attention to Gisele, or Tom Brady, but I ended up watching the 73 questions from Vogue and she seemed like a pretty decent person. (I was mostly amazed by their Boston home.) It's hard not to sigh at her current zen state of family and work, but she has earned ...

    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 ...

    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...

    I bought this book like new at the local library for $1. The pacing is off and there isn't really a central point. Gisele mentions her breasts rather frequently. Towards the end, she goes on a strange rant about men being oppressive in society. ...

    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...

    Ao se despir e revelar o seu verdadeiro eu, Gisele deixa as portas abertas para, ao menos, espiarmos tua trajetória de um viés mais pessoal. Certamente ?Aprendizados? traz muitas reflexão e muitas proposições legais. Com uma escrita leve, fluída e inspiradora, o livro emocion...

    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 disea...

    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 rea...

    O livro é muito atraente, gostei da leitura rápida e leve. No início, se vc tiver uma auto estima baixa kkk vc se sente um pouco mal pq ela, além de ser a TOP model, também faz mil coisas (inclusive pilotar helicoptero). Mas no final (também no decorrer do livro) ela da varias di...

    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 d...

    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 ...

    Reading about her life was interesting for the first half of the book. I did enjoy reading about her modeling, family and was quite inspiring how she dealt with her anxiety. However, towards the second half of the book I wasn't so drawn and struggled to finish it. Some of her points we...
