This book is a personal and inspirational memoir from the author, an Emmy and Oscar winner that is focused on her transformation as she embraced a healthy lifestyle and lost over eighty pounds. Soulful and sultry, she wowed the world with her powerful voice in American Idol's third season, and then took Hollywood by storm with a star turn in Dreamgirls that won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. But before we knew her as an American Idol standout, Jennifer was singing in her church choir in the Southside of Chicago. This memoir tells the story of Jennifer's meteoric rise from American Idol to Dreamgirls to her amazing weight loss on the Weight Watchers diet plan. With the Weight Watchers brand endorsing her, Jennifer gives her fans tips for embracing a healthy lifestyle in order to lose weight and reclaim their bodies. Full of stories from her American Idol days, her experience acting in Dreamgirls, and how her son inspired her to want to live healthfully, this book is for her fans and an inspiration for anyone struggling with weight issues.

I found this book boring and completely uninspiring. I would not recommend this book to anyone. A previous comment by wordwoman007 is exactly how I feel. "It's a weight watchers infomercial in written form." Would not be surprised if they paid her to write it.

This book has two halves: 1) Ms. Hudson is VERY full of herself and seems to think that she has more talent than anyone else; and 2) It's a Weight Watchers infomercial in written form. It is very, very repetitive and lacks the substance I hoped that she would examine. I admired her more before I read the book. Now, my opinion of her has taken a nosedive.

This was an OK book. I didn't feel like it was written with any sort of passion though. She skims over the generic details of her like then jump into how she came to be on Weight Watchers and moves through her journey on the plan. I was hoping for more substance, not an infomercial.

A very inspiring book by a young woman who has succeeded against the odds.
