Publisher's Summary

Janice Dickinson was not only the first of the supermodels, it was she who (literally) invented the term. A raven-haired natural beauty, she endured a nightmarishly traumatic childhood at the hands of a sadistic, sexually and emotionally abusive father, and emerged in the early 1970s as the first lush-lipped, "exotic" brunette to break into a modeling world dominated by sunny California blondes.

But this is more than Janice's tale of triumph. Janice also tells us what's real about beauty and what's not, and how women don't have to be slaves to the pictures they see on the glossy pages of Vogue. She discusses why we need to feel perfect, and how our pasts, our unattainable ideas of beauty, and male expectations all collude to make women feel like they should be working towards the next major makeover before next year's model steps up to the bed.

Funny, gutsy, gossipy, yet ultimately searching and unforgettable, Janice Dickinson's story is an amazing story of hard won success unlike any you've heard before.

    "Funny, Witty, Honest"

    I immensely enjoyed Janice's tale of her rollercoaster modeling career and lovelife. Janice offers straight up no nonsense advice on relationships. If you are looking for a nice sweet story on a girl struggling with career and men this audiobook is NOT it. She tells it like it is. I hope her other titles are released on audio in the future.

    Story
    "Exactly what one would expect from J.D."

    Dickenson is in your face, and unapologetic about it. She is a whiper snapper who doesn't mis any opportunity and never skips a beat. Her narration is point on and quite entertaining.

    "Fabulous Janice"

    This audiobook was a fantastic listen. You really get to know Janice and why she is the way she is. I highly recommend the book and look forward to audible carrying more of her books.

    "Crude, But Interesting"

    If you like Janice's personality, then this is a gem. This audio is fast-paced, raunchy and real.
