Jessica Simpson

11 Hours 23 Minutes

HarperCollins Publishers

February 2020

Audio Book Summary

The #1 New York Times Bestseller

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 fifteen, 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 readers 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 readers 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 book shares the wisdom and inspirations she’s learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture cliché’s — “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.

    Listen to this book! I had planned to read it until I realized Jessica Simpson would be narrating. I loved how raw and real she was while sharing her story. JS is exactly what all women have needed! She’s kind hearted, caring, passionate and one tough chick Once I started listening I didn’t want to stop. The songs she shares at the end are fantastic too! It’s a must listen/read for not only women but anyone struggling to find/appreciate themselves.

    It was interesting to hear what was really happening in her life. With being a celebrity, we only see what the media wants us to see. It was definitely heart-warming and heartbreaking and there were a few "Are you serious?" moments. I'd probably listen to this again later on.

    I like Jessica Simpson. I wanted to like this book but I couldn’t even finish it. While she was open and raw, her indifference to having any accountability for her life’s actions is frustrating and simply, hard to listen to. She didn’t make it into The Mickey Mouse Club because of Christina and Britney. Her album wasn’t a success because of Tommy Matola and Sony. Her videos weren’t successfull because of MTV and her marriage wasn’t successful because of Nick. She often mentions not wanting to be seen just as a pretty face, but then mentions constantly that everyone tells her how beautiful she is. She talks about how important God is in her life, but doesn’t mention Him at all when she’s flirting and talking to a married man while being married herself. The entire first half of the book is based on hypocrisy. Note I didn’t make it through the second half. I’ve listened to many audiobooks that were narrated by the author. I think she should’ve let a friend narrate it as her voice is incredibly annoying, not to mention how she “cried “ at least once each chapter. Unless you’re a big fan, I’d pass.
