Kurzbeschreibung

The star of the hit show Glee shares her experiences and insider tips on beauty, fashion, inner strength, and more in an illustrated in an illustrated book that’s part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide.
 
Lea Michele is one of the hardest working performers in show business.  Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oreal, Lea is the ultimate multi-tasker.  She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered.  In Brunette Ambition, she reveals the lessons and advice that have worked for her--from beauty and fashion secrets to fitness tips, and career insights.  Supplemented with never-before-seen photos and revealing anecdotes, it’s the book Lea wishes she’d had in her teens and early twenties: A practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion and living the fullest life, no matter what obstacles life puts in your way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ANECDOTES AND ADVICE 26. Mai 2014
Format:Audio CD
Of course, most of us think we know her well as Rachel Berry on the hit TV show Glee, but there's a great deal more to her than the perky singer we see on the small screen as is quickly learned in her chatty memoir "Brunette Ambition." Who better to read her story than the young woman herself, and it's a treat to hear it in her own now familiar voice.

In a brief opener Michelle notes that she hopes her story of how she got to where she is today will "inspire and motivate" others, and make them realize that whatever they want to accomplish in their lives is "completely possible." What she has accomplished so far is amazing, and she's worked hard for it. She has been nominated for an Emmy, a SAG Award and a handful of Golden Globes. Still she seems to have retained a friendliness and openness seldom found in one so celebrated. So, enjoy listening to what this Bronx-raised gal has to say about what she has learned and the advice she has to offer.

She shares her favorite workout routines, best loved recipes (including what she eats to unwind), makeup tips, stories of her childhood and family, plus a host of anecdotes that will endear her even more to her fans and win her a host of new ones.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Motiviert und inspiriert! 24. Juni 2015
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe dieses Buch gekauft, weil ich ein grosser Fan von Lea Michele bin, aber auch Nicht-Fans würden viel aus ihrem Buch profitieren! Es ist teils eine Biographie, Fashion- und Beauty-Ratgeber, mit gesunden Kochrezepten und Bilder. Es ist sehr inspirierend, weil sie sehr positiv denkt und sehr viel erreicht hat, weil sie sehr hart arbeitet und auch weil sie sich immer treu geblieben ist.
Ich freue mich schon ihr nächstes Buch "You First"!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Little Bit Of Everything About Lea's Professional and Personal Life 21. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'll admit that I was at first very hesitant to take the time to read this. Though I am a big fan of both Glee and Lea Michele--and celebrity memoirs are definitely my guilty reading pleasure--the majority of celebrities tend to be preachy, self-absorbed, and often impart very little in the way of practical wisdom/advice to us real world folk. Fortunately, Brunette Ambition was quite the opposite. In this memoir/how-to/style guide, Lea Michele made everything extremely relateable to her fan base. She discussed her upbringing as a child stage actress and the lessons on professionalism, patience, rejection, and self-care that she learned very on, and these pearls of wisdom are applicable to pretty much every career (from cashier to retail manager to CEO of a Fortune 500 company). I appreciated that, when discussing her style, she kept it simple. Many celebs rattle off a litany of expensive brands that make you feel downright destitute in comparison, while also making you wonder if they're being sponsored to "recommend" such brands. But Lea's advice basically stressed quality over quantity. She's a self-proclaimed "anti-hoarder" who hates an overwhelming amount of clothing options, so she recommends shopping only twice per year--for the essentials like underwear and socks,a sensible handbag, and traditional pieces that will be of use for awhile--while cleaning out your closet and giving away the items you will no longer use in the meantime. Lea also stressed the importance of taking care of yourself physically and mentally and included several recipes for healthy meals, her typical meal plan for any given week, her exercise routine, bath soaks, hair masks,and other things that she loves and regularly uses to pamper herself. Once again, no name dropping of expensive brands. And of course, she discussed the importance of family and friendship and how her loved ones have kept her grounded as an actress. Overall, I do highly recommend giving this a read. I didn't feel like I was reading the musings of a spoiled diva actress, but rather gaining honest, practical advice from someone who is successful in her field and knows her limits.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfection 22. Mai 2014
Von Marissa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been looking forward to Lea's book since I first heard about it. I grabbed mine at Target which came with little lifestyle cards in the back. Very cute touch.

I bought the book yesterday and finished it today. A quick read. Not because it was too short or anything but because it sucked me in just that much.

The book is not a stereotypical autobiography. The first few chapters really focus on her childhood and rise to fame. You really get to know about her past, her family, and friends. The rest of the book is about getting to know her as she is right now. She is pretty much like the rest of us, just famous. She is very down to earth. That is a quality I LOVE in celebrities. No matter the fame or the money, she is still down to earth, normal, & true to herself. Qualities that I feel are not always present in Hollywood. I, myself, live in Los Angeles and have seem some celebrities act awful.

She also discusses the importance of quality over quantity. She really nurtures her relationships with her family, friends, and peers.

The book includes recipes as well as fitness, style, hair, and makeup tips from her stylist team. I also try to be very organic and healthy with products I use so it was exciting to see some homemade beauty recipes trickled in. :-)

It was so refreshing to read a book written by a celebrity that is not "ME ME ME". She genuinely wants to pass on and share her life experiences and knowledge to us.

I would recommend this book to anyone. I loved it. Well done, Lea & thank you.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Brunette Ambition falls as flat as Michele's hair before her Hollywood team of stylists comes in to perk it up. 2. Mai 2015
Von Meg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I picked up this book because I wondered what wisdom a young actress such as Lea Michele would have to share with the world. After reading it, I can tell you, I'm still wondering that. I was under the mistaken impression that Brunette Ambition was more of an autobiography than what it actually is, which would be a lifestyle advice book: pay $21.00 for the not remotely personalized advice of Lea Michele, your Hollywood Life Coach. Well, that's what an accurate description of the book would've said, but, of course, it wouldn't have sold.

In place of the backstage anecdotes I was hoping for from Michele's tenure on productions such as Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, and Ragtime, I got a recipe for a rejuvenating hair mask, the advice to purchase new undergarments every six months, and tips on what to pour into the bathtub for maximum relaxation. ...as if Michele is famous for the kind of information women's magazines tend to dole out, and not because she can sing. Sure, there were a few interesting tidbits here and there talking about experiences only a Broadway-caliber actress could've had, but it was basically, "This is what I like to eat, this is what I like to wear, and this is what I do while I'm spending a quiet evening at home, because that's my favorite pastime." I just don't find that kind of detail interesting.

Also, the fact that 99.9% of the book was G-rated, and then Michele suddenly (and seemingly out of nowhere) commented upon the fact that apparently there is Glee-inspired porn (WHAT?) makes me shy away from the recommendation that teen and tween fans of Glee or Rachel Berry might enjoy this book, and wonder who, exactly, would want to purchase it, and why. I would hope those who do buy it understand that they can make all of her recipes (for homemade beauty products or meals) and they won't be as rich or famous as Lea Michele is, which is the only reason I can think of that someone would make this purchase.

Brunette Ambition falls as flat as Michele's hair before her Hollywood team of stylists comes in to perk it up.

It was ok....... I didn't expect it to mostly talk about her fashion, eating habits, and career. The book didn't seem sincere. I wanted it to impact me a little more. It was hard to finish the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Be Yourself to Be Successful 12. Oktober 2014
Von anniehurley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It is no secret that Lea Michele has made a permanent name for herself over the past few years. Sure, you could attribute her success to luck and being in the right place at the right time. Or, you could choose to believe that she has achieved her success in life based on her dedication to remaining true to herself and her dreams despite the disappointments, non-believers, and self-doubt that are inevitable along any path to success.

Being a self-proclaimed Gleek, I was ecstatic when I saw that Lea Michele had a book out. It was an extra indulgent treat to listen to her read her own words in her upbeat voice on Audible.

Brunette Ambition starts out with a brief look at a young, pre-Glee Lea Michele and a glimpse into her home life. The beginning few chapters of the book are full of inspirational messages about being ourselves and embracing our uniqueness rather than trying to washout and be like everyone else.

Staying True to Yourself & Staying Healthy

We learn that before Rachel Berry, Lea Michele had her own outcast difficulties to navigate as a child not like all the other girls. Thankfully she followed her dreams, even though they took her away from fitting in. She was fortunate to have supportive parents who, despite their own conventional professions, encouraged her to follow her passion for acting starting at a very young age.

Towards the middle of the book, the focus shifts to health and beauty tips. She offers insights into her personal approach to living a healthy lifestyle, and sets a great example for all the young girls and women who look up to her. She responsibly rejects deprivation, and wisely advocates for balanced, whole food eating, and finding enjoyable activities to stay in shape rather than slaving away at a gym (unless you like the gym).

She then moves into a lengthy discussion of beauty and fashion tips, and incorporates input from her personal stylists. There are still some personal stories sprinkled throughout these sections, including her recount of the time she met her idol, Barbara Streisand.

The book concludes with a few glimpses into Glee from Lea Michele's perspective. She talks about life on the set and friendships with other cast members. For a brief moment, she brings us into the world behind the magic that is Glee.

Who This Book is For

This book would be great for young girls or young women who are seeking rational health tips, fans of Lea Michele, and/or aspiring performers. The beginning few chapters and last chapter containing a few of her personal thoughts on Glee were my favorites. I felt that the meat of the book addressing beauty and health tips wasn't what I was personally after, although I suppose that was her primary focus in writing the book. Still, I picked up a few beauty tips and yummy healthy recipes, so I am a happy Lea Michele fanatic camper.

Lea Michele is an amazing role model for girls & women. She is leading by example, embracing a healthy lifestyle and pursuing and living her dreams. The content towards the beginning of the book discussing the benefits of being yourself and following your dreams could have been a greater focus of the book.

I believe she is much deeper than what the bulk of the book is focused on. While the beauty and fashion tips might be what it seems that young girls & women want, I think she has so much more to share with us that would be far more inspiring than her trainer's tips for exercising or make-up artist's recommendations.

It is completely understandable that she didn't include more details about her relationship with Cory, not only because that was not the book's original intended purpose or focus (it was largely written before his sudden passing), but also because that is her personal story that she may never choose to share beyond her inner circle. It is amazing she was able to put out a book so soon after going through such a devastating loss. Her return to public life with a renewed sense of purpose and responsibility to be a positive influence has been truly inspiring. I hope she writes another book in the coming years and can't wait to see what she creates next!
