Book Overview

The instant New York Times bestseller

Supermodel and philanthropist Gisele B ndchen shares personal stories, insights, and photos to explore lessons that have helped shape her life.

Gisele B ndchen's journey began in southern Brazil, growing up with five sisters, playing volleyball, and rescuing the dogs and cats around her hometown. In fact, she wanted to become either a professional volley player or a veterinarian. But at the age of 14, fate suddenly intervened in in the form of a modeling scout, who spotted her in S o Paulo. Four years later, Gisele's appearance in Alexander McQueen's memorably rain-soaked London runway show in the spring 1998 launched her spectacular career as a fashion model, and put an end to the heroin chic era of fashion. Since then, Gisele has appeared in almost 400 ad campaigns and on over 1200 magazine covers. She has walked in more than 470 fashion shows for the most influential brands in the world. Gisele has become an icon, leaving a lasting mark on the fashion industry.

But until now, few people have gotten to know the real Gisele, a woman whose private life stands in dramatic contrast to her public image. In Lessons, she reveals for the first time who she really is and what she's learned over the past 37 years to help her live a meaningful life--a journey that takes readers from a childhood spent barefoot in small-town Brazil, to an internationally successful career, motherhood and marriage to quarterback Tom Brady.

A work of great openness and vulnerability, Lessons reveals the inner life of a very public woman.

   Well balanced book!
Gisele's book was recommended to me by a dear friend and I can not thank her enough. The lessons learned in this book are invaluable. Reading someone as kind hearted, free spirited, and loving, as Gisele's story is so inspiring. I recommend this book highly to young women in their early adulthood, like myself.
   Powerful messages
I love the lessons in this book, it has truly opened my eyes. I am able to hold the gems in this book.
   Inspirational, Relatable, Eye-opening
The list is great... what a continuous perspective on life. 5 stars : The proceeds of the book are donated to a charitable organisation.
   Wonderfully written
I really enjoyed this book and all the amazing advice.
This book loved absolutely. Gisele lives with the grace for which we strive. I have already begun to adopt better habits in my life. It could not have come at a better time.
   Inspirational book !!
I love everything about this book! '' She makes you feel motivated and if you are down or blue, kick yourself out.
Ughhh are celebrities so locked by NDAs that they can 't give you ANY juice! If you want to hear a model of spitting garbage about meditating every day and taking her children to school, this is the book for you. If you want to hear what it is like to live on your looks, hardest modeling jobs, traveling internationally, what the industry is really like, what it must have been like when your ex gf has knocked her secret plastic surgery, die as a model - you will not find it in this book. Even if Bundchen does not want to talk about her professional life, we could have heard about her private life and what it takes. Snoozefest is a total snoozefest.
   Disappointing and Unrealistic
From the summary in which I purchased it, this book was terribly disappointing. There is no changing of life's new news on coping with anxiety. It is mostly written poorly and she tells the story of her life even as a memoir, rather than a self-help book. She is kind of sninny in parts and very bragging that she thinks she is a great person. Most of her suggestions also include a helper to help, a gardener, cook, and yoga instructor. Common person for realisitic is not quite as common.
Gisele, Gosh. Your fear, anxiety, pain and how to conquer... you're an amazing woman! Thank you...I know that this is a good read for everyone in these times! Peace, my friend!
   A surprisingly lovely easy to read book
I have received the kindle edition. Typically, I would not purchase a book by a super-model celebrity, but I liked reading what I saw in the sample pages and making a decision to get the digital copy. The writing is organized well, read easily and has the right number of photographs of the family. It is almost like a conversation with the author. Having read the book, it feels like I would not have enjoyed the listening version of the book. This is a book to read and quickly to read. I viewed Gisele as human, as a mother and as a wife. I could also see that she is a very well-read, insightful, and thoughtful person and there was plenty in this book to be inspired by. The simplicity and depth of the book and the author have caught me by surprise and I recommend this quick read to anyone.
