    When you step Out of Your Comfort Zone, it is important to stop stepping before you get into the Uncomfy ZoneLet s all give a standing ovation to the team of writers, editors, etc behind her book Because I m reading Modelland and those two are on COMPLETELY different levels Like this one is in the ballpark of being tolerable and Modelland is on a different equator Possibly the moon.So, this book literally goes through ten things that Tyra s mom taught here The overall vibe of When you step Out of Your Comfort Zone, it is important to stop stepping before you get into the Uncomfy ZoneLet s all give a standing ovation to the team of writers, editors, etc behind her book Because I m reading Modelland and those two are on COMPLETELY different levels Like this one is in the ballpark of being tolerable and Modelland is on a different equator Possibly the moon.So, this book literally goes through ten things that Tyra s mom taught here The overall vibe of this book is that it s another catchy, upbeat celebrity book all about loving yourself for who you are, embracing your womanhood and never letting society put you down.There s period parties, loving your curves and adoring your flaws no matter what But, and this is a big but, so let me do it again, but in all caps BUTthis book feels like a PR statement It s really like a super long, well crafted politically correct manifesto for why Tyra is actually the best human being on this planet.Okay, so I know I sound HUGELY cynical but I ve literally just watched 22 cycles of America s Next Top Model and have been addictively looking up all the controversies from that show on redditand let me tell youthe person who she is on the show is completely different than the person in this book.On the show she s constantly giving backhanded compliments and putting models in bad situations remember the one that was groped, or the woman was paired up with the male model who hated black women and they told to play it off like no big deal Like really She just does so many uncomfortable things to these girls who she is claiming to bring up and mentor One of the models finds out her friend just died and that week s photoshoot put her in an open grave and being told to look dead.Another model was belittled for seeming too African, and then there was the literal blackface photoshoot campaign Multiple girls experience panic attacks and are told to power through it One gets hypothermia and is then belittled for not letting the photographer know her limits.One year, she picks at a contestant until she agrees to fill in her gap tooth, then a few years later she shaves a gap tooth into another model.I ve seen literal hours of her picking at contestants until they come apart on television To put it frankly, show Tyra is problematic at best and horrifying at worst.But, I picked up this book interested in her take on life and curious as to what she has to say.And the answer It s all a misunderstanding.She truly is America s golden hearted sweetheart Just don t pay attention to the makeup pyramid scheme or the hysterical girl in the corner she s just ungrateful.Part of me wants to give her the benefit of the doubt, for there ARE moments where she does seem to shine on television.But when literally dozens of models have confirmed the show Tyra is the real versionI find myself not particularly convinced about the book she wrote about herself focusing on how great she isEspecially when the book not so subtly goes through each and every controversy and presents it as a situation where Tyra took the high road, the path of kindness and enlightenment I mean, what are the odds that so many situations are reframed just so and she comes across as the only level headed woman in the room Always There was a bit about her childhood and a smidge about her career but I was disappointed that it was so sparsely covered I wascurious about her life off screen than rehashing the I WAS ROOTING FOR YOU moment for the umpteenth time and, spoiler, according to the book Tyra did it out of love and compassion, despite video evidence to the contrary.I did like it when she talked about the swimsuit debacle and that was probably one of the only moments that felt genuine wellthat and the period partybut I think I d rather just scrub that one from my memory.All in all, this was a light read It doesn t really go into anything new regarding the controversies other than to explain them away but if you are a HUGE Tyra fan, then this book will align with you pretty well

    This is a soft 3 starred review Now, I absolutely love Tyra Banks I love everything she stands for I love her covers I love America s Next Top Model I loved both of her talk shows What I love most about her is that she lifts people, especially younger girls, up As someone who suffers from low self esteem, having a supermodel teach you tools on how to live yourself is awesome When I heard about Perfect Is Boring Tyra and Her Mama 10 Things My Crazy, Fierce Mama Taught Me About Beauty, Bo This is a soft 3 starred review Now, I absolutely love Tyra Banks I love everything she stands for I love her covers I love America s Next Top Model I loved both of her talk shows What I love most about her is that she lifts people, especially younger girls, up As someone who suffers from low self esteem, having a supermodel teach you tools on how to live yourself is awesome When I heard about Perfect Is Boring Tyra and Her Mama 10 Things My Crazy, Fierce Mama Taught Me About Beauty, Booty, and Being a Boss coming out, I was so excited Then, I read it and I became less excited Holy Quip Alert, Batman Perfect Is Boring was a difficult read because of all the quips I had to endure while reading it I felt that both Banks and her mother, Carolyn London were always on They were trying to be hip and funny and it was just exhausting to even finish a chapter It was the gift of gab out of control It s a shame because underneath the rampant Gil Girls style quipping is a really good book tackling serious issues about self esteem When Banks got a bitserious during the chapter s conclusion, there were great nuggets of truth.Perhaps I should listen to the audiobook of Perfect Is Boring Honestly, I feel that I would be just as exhausted

    As America s Next Top Model has long been a guilty pleasure of mine, I was psyched to check out Tyra s new book, especially when I saw that she and her mom narrated the audio version If you re not used to Tyra s over the top style, this might be a bit jarring at first, but I would HIGHLY recommend listening rather than reading this one, even if audiobooks aren t normally your thing Tyra is a born performer and public speaker, and you ll be missing out on a lot of the delivery if you take this As America s Next Top Model has long been a guilty pleasure of mine, I was psyched to check out Tyra s new book, especially when I saw that she and her mom narrated the audio version If you re not used to Tyra s over the top style, this might be a bit jarring at first, but I would HIGHLY recommend listening rather than reading this one, even if audiobooks aren t normally your thing Tyra is a born performer and public speaker, and you ll be missing out on a lot of the delivery if you take this in only through the written word This book was funny and uplifting and empowering, and gave me some neat behind the scenes looks at some of the most iconic ANTM moments I remember from over the years I learned new things about Tyra which made me appreciate and respect heras a role model for young women She and her mom joke often about leaving certain stories for book 2, and if they ever come out with another, I will be sure to get a copy

    I listened to this book in audiobook form, and Tyra and her mother definitely have the sort of camaraderie worth appreciating It was interesting to hear about how Tyra got into modelling and her future avenues from there, and how her mom was with her 100% percent throughout the process What I liked about this book, is that she talks about her failures as much as she talks about her successes I also found her outlook on plastic surgery or not , well said, even though it is not the most popula I listened to this book in audiobook form, and Tyra and her mother definitely have the sort of camaraderie worth appreciating It was interesting to hear about how Tyra got into modelling and her future avenues from there, and how her mom was with her 100% percent throughout the process What I liked about this book, is that she talks about her failures as much as she talks about her successes I also found her outlook on plastic surgery or not , well said, even though it is not the most popular opinion They do a great job at removing the shame from talking about a period or body shaming and everything on those lines It is possible I had gotten bored of listening to autobiographical books on audio, which may have led to some boredom I also think some things were repeated again and again, that got me a little bored I wonder if it would have been faster had I read it instead of listened to it Either way, some chapters are amazing and some are so so, but I think it is definitely not bad for a one time read
