Description

Supermodel and super CEO of our time Tyra Banks and her mother Carolyn show readers why when you kick perfection to the curb and showcase your unique beauty ain't nobody gonna stop you!

In Perfect Is Boring, Tyra Banks and her mother, Carolyn, get raw, real, and cray-in-a-good-way as they share what they’ve learned on Tyra’s journey from insecure preteen to supermodel and entrepreneurial powerhouse. Though she’ll 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 Carolyn’s 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, 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-listen for anyone who needs a kick in the booty, a pat on the back, or a good reason to laugh out loud.

Momma London is so Funny!

I have to admit, I thought the combo narration would be all sorts of corny but it was well done and Tyra' s mom had me laughing. I wish I had a woman like her in my life.

I Expected More

Reading the reviews for this book, I expected something stellar. The performance was all right, most parts felt real. I was hoping to be inspired by the book but I guess it's really just an autobiography. It's impressive that Tyra has been able to get so far in her career and I respect her determination and talent. We've all heard the "love your body" spiel a million times but Tyra puts it well by saying "fix it or flaunt it."
Some of the book gets a bit preachy and it felt a little disingenuous. Was she using slang because that's how she talks or was she just using it just to appeal to the younger crowd?
Overall, it's a fun, light read if you really want to hear Tyra's story. But if you're looking for a kick in the butt, there are better books available.

Inspirational and Dramatic

I appreciated these two fiercesome voices telling their truths and sharing those vulnerabilities and lessons learned. Inspiring! At times their dramatic retellings could be grating with stutters and real portrayals of those difficult moments. I guess that just makes you a more empathic listener, but it was tiring at times. Made those final lessons worth it.

This book was far from perfect!

Listening to this was like the time I first picked up, "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret." Thank you for being so real and always mentoring us through all you do.

Woooooooow!! Bang Bang Banks!!

I'm cross-eyed happy and can't even explain but I guess the words I can find for now is you rock goddess queen Ty Ty and mama Carolyn.

I remember when I was on your talk show years back in L.A. on stage with you and Nick Cannon and his team. I splashed water on your dress and you were not happy...#sowwy🙈. I was mortified. I could not believe that I was on your show standing next to you, that girl who was bullied for being ugly and fat with big boobs claves that I always had to hide in pants and socks every chance I got..

I was onTyra's show, Barely months after my fiance broke up with me because his sister and mother did not think I was beautiful or good enough for him. They wish they never did that now.
I was the model that was told to lose some weight even tho I had a fierce walk and high cheek bones that people raved about and I did the work but had no support like Mama Carolyn just me. Family all in Africa, I felt alone and gave up.

How ever, you made me feel like the woman God made me to be and not confirming to other people's idea of beauty and I have been helping other women feel the same ever since with my gift thanks to you.

I did not model much because I got confused but I was hired to train women on their walk at a few Miss Africa beauty pagents.

You live a beautiful "flawsome" life Ty Ty and inspire beautiful change in people you may not even know in a huge snowball effect.
Thank you. I laughed along as I read. It felt like my sister and I in the bedroom with digging in icecream and catching up lol.

you have no idea what a legend you are.

Stay true TY Ty. I love you.

It’s like having a best friend and a mother in one book!

If you’re looking for a book about self love and humor, that’s where you should go!

A Flawsome Book if There Ever was One!

I love you Tyra! I needed this book at this point in my life. Completely different from anything else that I have heard and that is because Tyra is a true original.
