The #1 New York Times Bestseller

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.


  • Worth the read!

    By SuzMendoza
    The book really carries you through the author’s life. She is honest, vulnerable, and real. You’ll catch yourself going back a few paragraphs just to wrap your head around the fact that you’re reading about JESSICA SIMPSON and getting a (pretty big) peek into celebrity life, and then-as cliché as it sounds-continue reading and think, “wow, we’re really not that different.” And you empathize. And you thank her for sharing her story.
  • Truly Inspirational

    I didn’t think I was going to tear up so much reading this let alone having so many things in common with Jessica but I am so happy to finally have read it. So well written and so detailed about her life. Must read!

    I came to this book, excited to hear all the delicious drama I speculated about in my youth. I left this book truly inspired. With Jessica, I cried, celebrated, and discovered a desire to renew my faith. This is a truly great read for anyone looking for some inspiration.
