From Publishers Weekly
For this self-help book covering everything from health to work to sex, the supermodel best known as the face of Victorias Secret attempts to advise readers about their lives by explaining how she handled tricky situations in her own life. But Klums experiences, which range from watching the U.S. Open with Donald Trump to chatting awkwardly with Prince backstage at the Tonight Show, will be difficult for the average person to relate to. The basis for Klums "rules," such as "You Have to Want It, Baby (Desire)," "Be a Jet-Setter (Travel)" and "Make a Fashion Statement (Statement)," are certainly admirable. But Klum doesnt explicate them nearly as much as she writes about her own life, making this book feel more like an authorized biography. Several celebrities Klum counts as friends provide interesting sidebars: Harvey Weinstein on how to break into the entertainment business, Michael J. Fox on how to find humor in any situation, etc. Klums fans will want the book for its photos alone, which include the infamous snapshot of her biting Evander Holyfields ear and a 43-page portfolio of her personal favorites. There are more practical self-help books on the shelves, but none have such beautiful photos and as many pages of fodder for celebrity enthusiasts.

the book arrived within time frame stated and in excellent condition, i will order from company again
It's a simple read, but is very inspiring!
I don't understand why some people thought it is a book on how to be a model, or how Heidi became a model, when the cover clearly reads "8 RULES OF MODEL BEHAVIOR (To Help You Take Off on the Runway of Life)". "The RUNWAY OF LIFE"--hello!!!. This book is full of advice on living your LIFE, enjoying every moment, having fun with everything you do, no matter what profession you may have.
I honestly return or sell a lot of books I buy (because they don't leave a lasting impression on me), but this one is definitely a KEEPER!
It's definitely worth the $18!!!
This book is a fun, female oriented account from a popular super model. Men will like the book for the many photographs, many of them semi-nude. It includes a bit of a biography telling how Klum got into modeling and information about her family. However, like a magazine, this book is nothing outstanding. The information is grazed over and the many how-to articles do not really add much. The opinions held are often those that can be found in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan.
And why not? The business sections of any book store are filled with books for men on how to achieve success in their lives. Why shouldn't there be the equivalent books for women that are oriented to female success. And if you look at it, the things she says are not all that different. For instance the first rule is You Have to Want it, Baby - This chapter is sub-titled Desire, and a chapter named Desire would not be out of place in the business section. The other chapters likewise have a close analogy to the male business books, but are definitely written from a young women's viewpoint.
The resulting book is a mixture of wisdom a la Heidi, liberally illustrated with photographs of Ms. Klum on various modeling assignments.
