An instant bestseller, supermodel Gisele Bündchen shares her inner life and explores lessons that have helped shape her life.
Gisele’s journey began in Brazil, growing up with five sisters, playing volleyball and rescuing local animals. She imagined a career as a volleyball player or a veterinarian. But at the age of 14 a talent scout spotted her in São Paulo. Four years later her appearance in a London fashion show launched her career and put an end of the ‘heroin chic’ era of fashion. Since then, Gisele has appeared in hundreds of advertising campaigns and over 1000 magazine covers. However her private life is 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 years to help her live a meaningful life; from a childhood spend barefoot in small town Brazil, to international success, motherhood and marriage to quarterback, Tom Brady.
What I enjoyed most about Lessons was Gisele’s openness and vulnerability, especially when discussing anxiety, body image, breast implant regret and home births.
