            Jessica Simpson has lived most of her life in the public eye. As a pop culture phenomenon, singer, reality show pioneer, actress, entrepreneur, and global businesswoman behind a $1 billion company (the most successful celebrity licensing brand in history), Simpson is an icon of a... generation. But her journey hasn't been easy, and in her powerful new memoir she isn't afraid to admit that her life has very much been a work in progress. Revealing new parts of herself for the first time, Simpson opens up about her struggles, and how she learned that with the right mind-set--pain can give you tools, faith can give you courage, and challenges often give way to bigger opportunities and a bigger picture. From her popular television show Newlyweds, to a very public divorce, starring on the big screen and topping the Billboard charts, finding new love, raising a family, and running a successful business empire, her new book will be a candid, inspiring, and behind-the-scenes look at how she chose to learn from each difficult moment, evolve musically, become a more fearless businesswoman, and consistently shatter all expectations of who she was supposed to be. Jessica is and has always been America's sweetheart and she continues to be followed for her candor, unfiltered honesty, and girl-next-door persona. For the first time, she tells her side of the story, and shares with readers everything that she's learned along the way.

            In 1999, a former dishwasher from Detroit became the most influential music artist in the world. He was a fish out of water, a white artist creating powerful art in a black medium, telling stories with verbal dexterity, nimble wit and an honest that shocked the world. Eminem chan...ged the landscape of music and pop culture as we know it. Then, in 2006, at the height of his fame and as one of the biggest-selling artists of all time, Eminem all but disappeared. Beset by non-stop controversies, bewildering fame, a debilitating drug problem and personal tragedies, he became a virtual recluse, withdrawing to his Detroit area compound. He struggled with weight gain and a prescription pill addiction that resulted in an overdose that nearly took his life. Over the next five years, he got sober, relapsed and finally got clean, before triumphantly returning to the top. Rhyme and Reason picks up where rock journalist Anthony Booza's bestselling Whatever You Say I Am left off, capturing Eminem's wilderness years in his own words and through the insights of those closest to him. Chronicling the music, personal and spiritual growth of one of music's most enduring and enigmatic artists, this is an intimate portrait of an incredibly private man known by many to be the greatest rapper alive.
