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.

    oh my gawwddd! who knew jessica simpson was so smart and so down to earth? when I first heard of this book, I thought oh boo hoo poor little rich girl who's gonna whine about her marriage to nick lachey! that's all I ever knew her for. I knew she was a "pop" star but I was never a fan. I did not take an interest in her music then. upon reading this book I became intrigued and Google alot on her. she actually is a super talented singer. I don't know why they tried to change her and make her something she wasn't. I didn't know how intelligent she was. How she went through alot of the same struggles and pain most of us do. I was so obsessed w this book I spent the past 24 hrs, in 2 different sittings finishing it. it was so well written . I felt as though I was there. I cried so many times. And laughed too. I felt so happy for her as she accomplished the things she knew she was her to do. I left religion a long time ago for my personal reasons. (I was raised Christian) alot of her journey she shared made me question my decision. I got chills so many times during this read. Found myself even praying a couple of times. thank you Jessica for sharing sincerely, a new fan ❤

    I actually downloaded this book after listening to an Imagined Life Podcast about Jessica. have always liked her, just never considered myself a fan—I was actually interviewed and on Access Hollywood outside of the Charlottesville Rascal Flatts Concert she talks about in the book. I had no idea what life had been like for her until this book. Hearing her words in her own voice MADE this audiobook. You can hear the raw emotion in her voice—happy and sad. Beautifully written, like she’s talking directly to you and telling her truth. You won’t be disappointed.
