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.

    I read through the entire book in one sitting. It was honest, heartbreaking and funny. I never realized so many of the things Jessica struggled with and it’s amazing that she was able to put it all out there.
  • Absolutely phenomenal

  • Honest

    I am 59. I had to listen to her music again to remember her songs. That says something about my generation because I know my music and the greatest artists don’t require a search engine. What I learned from her story is that she is a very honest person, faithful to God, unfiltered and who acknowledged her struggles and unpacked them truthfully. Jessica is the bomb! She is a very talented and beautiful person. Impressed.
  • Excellent book

  • Loved her book!

    By Yelfer
    I really enjoyed reading Jessica’s story. From everything she’s been through and all the loves in her life it was so nice to see where she ended up. I actually got emotional reading her last chapter. Proud of her and wish her the best in life and sobriety.
