Publisher's Summary

The star of the hit show Glee shares her experiences and insider tips on beauty, fashion, inner strength, and more in a book that’s part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide.

Lea Michele is one of the hardest-working performers in show business. Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oreal, Lea is the ultimate multi-tasker. She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered. In Brunette Ambition, she reveals the lessons and advice that have worked for her - from beauty and fashion secrets to fitness tips, and career insights. Supplemented with never-before-seen photos and revealing anecdotes, it’s the book Lea wishes she’d had in her teens and early 20s: A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion and living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

An Inspiration!

It exceeded my expectations! I absolutely love Lea Michele even more. This book inspires me to really love myself and work hard at life. When I listen to it at the gym and smile randomly I probably get weird looks from people around me. overall, fabulous read!

This isn't an autobiography.

This is a how to book: wash your face, do your make up, eat healthy. The majority of the book talked about what she does to keep her face looking nice and what she eats. There were some stories about her life here and there, but this was difficult to listen to. :(

A fantastic read.

This book is full of insight, advice and humor. Lea Michele has had a fascinating life and it's awesome to hear her narrate her own story.

Great if you want beauty advice

I thought this would be more about her life but it's really just a bunch of beauty advice

Narcisstic Ramblings

Self-righteous, pious, but mostly just annoying. I thought it was going to be more of an autobiographical book with her journey. However I had to stop after halfway through, I don't want her tips for how to cleanse my face, nurture my body, or moisturize. Even her tone is condescending...save your money.

I felt like oh so Lea Michele brag book...

I felt like it was more of a brag book then her true story. It was kind of a boring read great for bedtime. I definitely wanted to hear the success stories, but it would have been nice to hear about some of the hard times to get there.

Good but left wanting more

This book was lovely however, I feel that it would have been better if it were a little more personal. It felt like she was guarding herself the whole book, only focusing on outer beauty (mostly) and even if she did talk about inner beauty she managed to circle back to talking about looks or clothes or beauty secrets. The title is unfitting to this book as it does not match the contents. I was expecting a look into her success and how she regards it but instead it was basically all about how to look your best once you have made it. I still enjoyed what I read but it was a little shallow in nature. I hope she writes a more personal one.

Honest and telling.

I'm grateful for Lea Michele in many ways but even more so, now that she has written a breakdown of what makes her happy and makes her, her.
