This is an amazing book by an amazing woman. I have never heard Jennifer sing, never saw her on the big screen. I only came to know of her through weight watchers, which prompted me to preorder her book. I laughed, cried tears of joy, and laughed some more. This book is so well written you feel like you have been right there with her through ups and ups, not downs as she stays upbeat no matter what. A true lady of the lord, a family girl, a real woman.

Good Story but...

You can tell that Jennifer is not a writer. Although I do admire her for wanting to do this on her own, the book just doesn't 'flow' all that well. Lots of simple sentences ('My mama said this'. 'I couldn't believe it'. 'Singing is my thing'. Etc.) I think this wou...

Love Jennifer Hudson, and think she's got an amazing story to tell, but she should've collaborated with a professional to write this book.

    Good book but...

    I really liked the book at first and couldn't put it down. In the beginning she was talking about herself and her family and all the trials she went through to get to where she is now. But about half way through the book, she started talking about how she lost weight. From that point on, I felt it was a WW book. That was all she talked about. I even found myself skipping over pages because they started saying the same thing about WW over and over again. It became a huge promotion for them and I lost complete interest in the book. It was very hard to finish it.

    it good book

    this book was made to let people know how she lost her weight and how your apperence means in the entertianment lifestyle. i read the review on here and i notice that people said that it would of been better if she stop mentioning weight watchers. but the book was made for that purpose. it is to tell people her experince losing her weight on weight watchers. and how she made a choice on how to take control over her health. this is a good book she gives u her background and her challenges she went through.

    Fast Read

    Not much focus on any other topic then WW! Wish there was more focus on her life as a whole!

    Good book with one flaw

    This book is actually pretty well written and very down to earth. So what spoils it? Her constant refferal to weight watchers. Jennifers life story in this book is interesting. But the reader keeps being led back to the subject of weight watchers, which inevitably gets boring.
