Lessons: My path to a meaningful life



Thanks to Allen and Unwin here is your chance to win one of 10 x copies of Lessons: My path to a meaningful life by Gisele Bundchen.

The supermodel, entrepreneur, activist and philanthropist shares the lessons that have helped shape her life.

In this book I've laid out the lessons that have helped me live a more conscious and joyful life, inspired me to overcome challenges I've faced over the years, and given me a deeper understanding of myself and the world. I hope they will help you, too.

Gisele Bundchen's journey began in southern Brazil, growing up with five sisters, playing volleyball, and rescuing the dogs and cats around her hometown. In fact, she wanted to become either a professional volleyball player or a veterinarian. But at the age of fourteen, fate suddenly intervened in the form of a modelling scout who spotted her in Sao Paulo. Four years later, Gisele's appearance in Alexander McQueen's memorable rain-soaked London runway show in spring 1998 launched her spectacular career and put an end to the 'heroin chic' era of fashion models. Since then, Gisele has appeared in almost 450 ad campaigns and on more than 1200 magazine covers. She has walked in nearly 500 fashion shows for the most influential brands in the world. Gisele has become an icon, leaving a lasting mark on the fashion industry.

But until now, few people have come to know the real Gisele, a woman whose private life stands in dramatic contrast to her public image. In Lessons, she reveals for the first time who she really is and what she's learned over the past thirty-eight years to help her live a meaningful life - a journey that takes readers from a childhood spent barefoot in small-town Brazil to an internationally successful career, motherhood, and marriage to quarterback Tom Brady.

A work of great openness and vulnerability, Lessons reveals the inner life of a very public woman.

Gisele Bundchen is one of the most famous supermodels of all time. Known globally for her business savvy, her philanthropy, and her advocacy for environmental protection, she has been listed by Forbes as one of the Most Powerful Women in the World and among the world's most generous celebrities. She has served as Goodwill Ambassador of the UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), and was named by Harvard University as a Global Environmental Citizen in recognition of her eco-efforts. She lives near Boston with her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, their children, and their dogs. Her profits from this book will go to Luz Foundation, which Bundchen created in 2007 to support social and environmental causes.
