    I don't think I would have ever picked this book up on my own, but I read a snippet of it in People magazine and it looked interesting. Much to my surprise, I actually really enjoyed this! Let's be honest - Gisele is gorgeous and successful, and so naturally you want to hate her. B...

    I always thought most super models would be superficial and narcissistic. Gisele Bundchen is neither. She is an avid environmentalist, a very loving person, and writes this book not about her career experiences so much as the emotional and spiritual lessons she's learned from her caree...

    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 ...

    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 w...

    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 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 boo...

    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...

    Foi bem difícil determinar a nota que eu ia dar para esse livro, primeiramente pensei em dar duas estrelas porque no geral o livro não me trouxe nada de novo e não me fez refletir sobre muita coisa, no geral achei um pouco superficial. Mas depois de pensar um pouco decidi dar três ...

    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 ...

    I had such high hopes for this book, but it was very disappointing. I thought it would be more about her journey and battle with mental illness and how she overcame it and now leads a better life. Although it was interesting to read about her life and family, the book was more about he...

    This book was an enjoyable read full of positivity and inspiration. Gisele shares moments of her life (childhood, modeling career, marriage, birthing her children, etc.) that were important and profound and the lessons she learned from each of those phases of her life. The book reads m...

    Surprisingly a good read This 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. ...

    I'm just going to give this book 5 stars because it's a much more positive book than you might think, with all the "supermodel" stereotypes out there and the gossip magazines, but Gisele does a terrific job in presenting a spiritual handbook on living a life of physical, mental, and sp...

    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...

    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...

    I?m conflicted by this book. Gisele has some poignant moments, and they are interesting and heartfelt. But there is also a lot of New Age mumbo jumbo about meditation and crystals etc. Its hard to apply her advice and tips to us normal girls, when Gisele can hire cooks and nannies an...

    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?d like to give this book a 3.5. I enjoy Gisele?s personality in interviews and agree with other reviewers that there are valuable pieces you can pull from the book as you wish, but the writing was somewhat unorganized and repetitive, she wasn?t very vulnerable or open as some r...

    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...

    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 ...

    É um livro de coach fantasiado de autobiografia. Esperava mais sobre a real história dela - os dias de luta e dias de glória. Achei que tudo foi contado de forma bem superficial. Alguns trechos são realmente interessantes - mas também encontrados em qualquer outro título que t...

    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...
