Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best seller

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.

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.

Heart warming and insightful

Holy heart strings..."Pain is where the tools are."

I did not expect the story and lessons that she shares and listening to her read it.... wow. I bawled and laughed and sat in the wisdom I did not expect to be gifted. I have a whole new appreciation for this woman! Honestly I expected a memoir of good stories and Hollywood highlights, I had no idea her true story and am grateful for the gift she's given us by sharing it. Hearing the emotion in her voice as she told her story was powerful. Thank you Jessica!

Will not disappoint

The bravery it must of took to write this book goes beyond measure. You feel her pain, her confusion and her faith. I bought this book out of curiosity as I was never a Jessica Simpson fan but I can tell you I am now and you will be too.

Wow

I am absolutely amazed by Jessica’s strength and I am so happy that she spoke up about everything. This just shows you how there really are so many things going on in someone’s life that we know nothing about.

I really hope she will release even more music in the near future. God has blessed her with so much talent.
