As soon as I got up at 5:30 this morning, I grabbed my NOOK and bought True You by Janet Jackson.(Oh the pleasures of owning a NOOK) I couldn't stop reading. I read it within a couple of hours. I can relate to Janet in many ways. There was times when I had to shed some tears myself. I can recall my mother telling me that I was fat.(And at 30yrs. old she still does to this day.) I had people pat my hips and raise their eyebrows because I was once 125 lbs. But that was when I was in high school. Now I'm a 30yr. old with an 8 yr. old son, 5'8 and 190 lbs struggling with my weight and yo yo dieting. Before reading this book I decided to take drastic measures of starvation but after reading True You, I decided to take drastic measures of finding and releasing the True Me.

Great concept but poorly written.

I absolutely love Janet so I had to have this book. I have been anticipating it's release and thought the concept was absolutely wonderful. Her theory of finding the "true you" makes alot of sense but she never really outlines the process of HOW to do this. For example,...
I absolutely love Janet so I had to have this book. I have been anticipating it's release and thought the concept was absolutely wonderful. Her theory of finding the "true you" makes alot of sense but she never really outlines the process of HOW to do this. For example, when she lost the weight, what was different this time? Just when you think she is going to start opening up, she doesn't. I did like the commentary from fans but I would have heard more from Janet herself.

    Surprising Motivation

    Kudos to Janet for sharing such an emotional journey! I did expect the nutritional side towards the end of the book. It was a nice motivational piece for many that are on the same journey.

    Thanks

    I'm a social worker who works with girls of all ages. I bought this book for two of my teens and we all started rrading it together. They both called me the next day to tell me that they finished the book already! I think this book has improved their self esteem and I can't wait to introduce it to more young ladies!
