American Dreamer brims with anecdotes that cover Tommy's years as a club kid and scrappy entrepreneur in 1970s New York as well as unique insights into the exclusive A-list personalities with whom he's collaborated and interacted, from Mick Jagger and David Bowie to Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. But this is more than just a fashion icon's memoir - it's a road map for building a brand, both professionally and personally.

This book was absolutely amazing and inspiring.
I couldn't put it down.
I ended up trying to google photos and read articles and actually live myself in the moment.
I now have so much respect and regard for the Tommy Hilfiger brand.
I love hearing how through all his trials and error, he built himself up again.
Always improving no matter what the obstacle was.
I am so motivated to start making my own way into the fashion industry.
This book I will always keep at hand.
It truly inspires me to hear that great people are able to achieve whatever they set out to do, and never let things such as collage or finances hold them back.
Thank you so much for writing this book.
