Description

Includes six new songs by Jessica Simpson, available exclusively in the Open Book audiobook. Performed by the author featuring her music throughout.

Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. Guided by the journals she's kept since age 15, and brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity, Open Book is as inspiring as it is entertaining.

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 authentic with her listeners if she wasn’t fully honest with herself first. 

Now, America’s Sweetheart, preacher’s daughter, pop phenomenon, reality TV pioneer, and the billion-dollar fashion mogul invites listeners on a remarkable journey, examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others but also burdened her with an almost crippling need to please. Open Book is Jessica Simpson using her voice, heart, soul, and humor to share things she’s never shared before.

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. Her audiobook shares the wisdom and inspirations she’s learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture clichés - "chicken or fish", "Daisy Duke", "football jinx", "mom jeans", "sexual napalm..." and more. Open Book is an opportunity to laugh and cry with a close friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, now that she is finally living hers.

Includes the songs "Heartbeat", "Practice What You Preach", "Sweet Temptation", "Your Fool" (featuring Willie Nelson), "Party of One", and "Free Will" by Jessica Simpson.

Just wow

I was not sure what to expect, maybe some entertainment? I did not expect to become fully immersed and unable to stop listening. I laughed, shook my head and cried. I developed a new respect for Jessica, hearing all she’s been through and to do it with a gracious heart and beautiful spirit. She’s fat more relatable than I ever could have imagine. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for sharing her journey.

Thank you for being an, "Open Book."

I loved the peek behind the fame and fortune, where she opened up about her early life; her abuse, her rise to fame, creating her fashion empire and her identity along the way. It would be difficult growing into your own person, while being scrutinized constantly on only one facet of your being. She has overcome so many obstacles to get to where she is today and I am glad that she has become an, "Open Book," as this can help so many others whom share similar struggles.

Raw & Emotional!

I absolutely loved this book! I didn’t imagine it would move me as much as it did. It being narrated by Jessica made the story that much more moving. You laughed with her, cried with her and felt all the feels she was trying to get the readers to feel. Highly recommend.

Couldn't stop listening! Loved it!

I was so excited when I heard Jessica Simpson was writing a biography- and it was well worth the wait! Wow, I LOVED it! I couldn't stop listening, it was so good! I have been a fan of her since she was on Newlyweds. So, it was definitely interesting to hear her perspective about that time in her life. I also loved that she was the narrator.

My Heart Is Full

Jessica's raw and vulnerable self reflection filled my heart. She has always come across as such a sweet soul and this memoir completely confirmed that. I loved listening to her and hearing the emotion and passion in her voice. The songs are a beautiful bonus. Thank you for sharing!!

Run of the Mill celeb Bio

Jessica’s story was good. Nicely written.
However- the narration was terrible- her slurry speech and CONSTANT “almost crying” sad voice was tough to get through.

Loved this

Thank you Jessica for such an honest read. Your stories and particularly the story about such bullying in Cheerleading made me feel so much less alone when I think about the horrible bullying I too experienced in school. How you’ve overcome such emotional torment to be such an inspiration and success is something that will continue to help me do the same. Thank you again!

Narration alert!

"Not all authors should read their own books". I read that on a review once and never understood why not.
That is until this book. Ugh...
I had to increase the speed to 1.10 because she talks as if she's a high valley girl. Speeding it up helped a bit the valley girl style of speaking is such a turn off. I'm not sure if she was trying to be funny and it didn't translate.
But when it was a sad sentence or story that required a cry, she inserted the proper fake tears, voice cracking, perfectly on time. It was like she was running the laugh track on a sitcom. Very forced emotions coming through her voice and sometimes even a lisp came through.
All the highlights of the book have been featured in magazines so no surprises for me.
I've listened to over 200 audiobook and never had I listened to one so badly narrated.
I'd recommend getting this book and reading it rather than listening.
The bad narration also took away from the stories in the book, but I never questioned what emotion I was supposed to feel. Just cue up Jessica's tone of the sentence.

Narration is bad

Jessica Simpson should not have narrated her own story. There were times when she would get to an emotional point and she would put on this sad, cracking voice that just sounded fake.

Just “opened the book”

I woke up so excited because today was the day I would get to download Jessica’s book on Audible. I started listening to it on my way to work. I already know I am totally in love, obsessed, and going to be able to relate to her story in so many ways. I loved Jessica at the beginning of her career and still love everything about her today. I am hoping to gain some insight on how to be “REAL and OPEN” just as she has done in this book as I venture through her story.

Waiting for Years

I’ve waited for years to hear some of these stories. The songs are actually really great. It’s awesome to hear her singing again. This is nice to listen to and very inspiring. I love the fact that this isn’t some quickly written 150 page celeb book. It’s a long, well thought out incredible journey in words. Thank you, Jessica, for this gift!

Your My Bestie!

Love Jessica. Always have. In this book she talks to you like she is having a conversation with her best friend...YOU! She explores her highs and lows and how she overcame all her adversities with GOD at her side. She is vulnerable funny and deep. This book gives me all the feels. Love you Jess. It was worth staying up till midnight anxiously waiting to press play!

Boy you let people into the real world know parts of the real you unvarnished! Beautiful

Thanks for letting us into parts of your life that surely could not have been easy! I’m sure your book will help many. Thanks for your willingness to write unfiltered. I especially loved the constant through your book. God. You’ve demonstrated what a Christian looks like not what others confused view of who Christians actually are. God uses the broken parts of us for his glory! Great job!

Can’t get more open than this...

The overall story is so good. I’ve been looking forward to the release of this book for a while now so I’m trying to stay objective. Jessica told her stories with such grace and paints a picture as if I’m watching it on TV.

It's Just Okay but slurry drunk narration

This book is just okay in my opinion. I, like many others are always curious about the lives of celebrities. Especially given what you see of them in the media. This book was a little dramatic for my taste. The emotional breakdown from her drinking she had. The woe is me attitude. It's a little too self serving for my taste. Just my opinion, but I feel like she fabricates a lot of the drama for herself for no reason. Also, she sounds drunk or high reading it. Very slurry speech sometimes followed by this fake almost crying voice cracking at times when it's "suppose" to be emotional. Not sure why they let her narrate it. Again, just my opinion.
