Summary
  • Shares the life lessons Tyra Banks learned from her mother and applied to her highly successful career, and how their close bond helped them to overcome many obstacles in life
  • "This book should come with an advisory (oh wait, it does--turn to page 21!), because in Perfect Is Boring, Tyra Banks and her mother, Carolyn, get raw, real, and crazy-in-a-good-way as they share what they've learned on Tyra's journey from insecure preteen to supermodel and entrepreneurial powerhouse. Though Carolyn will be the first to tell you she is not her daughter's best friend--'cause she ain't that kinda mama!--there's no doubt that her signature mix of pep talks and tough love got Tyra to where she is today, and here they pay it forward to empower readers with a reminder that perfect really isn't all that. Whether they're writing about watching Tyra's most imperfect moment go viral (Does "Be quiet, Tiffany!" ring any bells?), no-holds-barred sex talks, or how they've overcome everything from fashion industry discrimination to media fat-shaming and a misguided attempt at a music career, they never lose their sense of humor or we-got-your-back spirit. Full of smart, wise, and often hilarious lessons for mothers, daughters, and fathers and sons everywhere--including "Take Responsibility for Yourself," "Lip Gloss + Pizza Sauce = Boss," and "Fix It or Flaunt It"--Perfect Is Boring is a must-read for anyone who needs a kick in the booty, a pat on the back, or a good reason to laugh out loud."--Dust jacket
