Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA-A successful model tells all in this readable self-help book. By sharing the beauty secrets she has learned from experts, Banks gives practical advice on skin care, cosmetics, hair, exercise, and fashion. She also addresses serious subjects such as substance abuse, romantic relationships, sexual concerns, and being a complete person. Jammed with full-color photographs and a variety of page layouts and type fonts, this glitzy book looks like a popular magazine (without the advertisements) just begging teenagers to pick it up. Interest is maintained through the breezy writing style that includes phrases such as, "I thought I was so smart...," diary entries, funny family stories, and before-and-after photographs. Since most of the photos are of Banks, one might be tempted to say that the book is aimed at African-American young women, but there are tons of hints and useful information for those of any racial or ethnic background. A wonderful choice for today's beauty-seeking teens.

Format: Paperback
Tyra Banks, with Vanessa Thomas Bush, has written the perfect beauty guide for every woman. Full of beautiful pictures, information and helpful tips, Tyra has included just about everything a woman should know about being her best - "Inside & Out". From cosmetics, fashion, diet and exercise to smoking, condoms and rape to love, sex and self-esteem. I'm overwhelmed with how complete this book is. She even included a [frightful] picture of just how cosmetically imperfect even she can be. But with the right techniques, as illustrated in this book, anyone can become as beautiful as the supermodels.
As a beauty photographer, I have learned many new ideas from this book that I will share with the models with whom I work. I bought several copies as gifts, and to keep at the studio.
The book is easy to read, has lots of pictures along the way, and it contains some of the best beauty tips I've seen. It's an invaluable reference, and I give it my highest possible recommendation.
By reading this review, you've indicated that you're looking to be your best. This book will help you to bring out the beautiful, magnificent woman you want to be.
Good Luck

There are lots of models in this world all with beautiful and distinctful looks, but the same personality. A typical model might act like she's all too good for herself---like an ordinary person is below her...that's posh!!! Tyra...there's something different about her. She shows the world who she really is---not being afraid of what other people might think of her. I'm an aspiring model and I take modeling very seriously as other models might and I too, also have a reputation to keep as other models might. But I don't act like I'm shy and quiet most of the time when I'm really not---I'm myself. I don't try to act a certain character to fit other people's bill. Tyra Banks is my #1 role model aside from God and my parents. She proved to me with this book that she's very different from your typical model. In this book, she revealed her true self and encourages other to do the same. I'm not saying that all models in the world are the same; I'm very positive some are different. Models are not only models for clothing ads, magazines, billboards, etc.; but they're also models to set a good example for other people---young, old, middle age. Tyra is a perfect example and trust me, you will LOVE her book. If you don't have it already, GO GET IT! ENJOY!!!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's more than just looking good. Yes, there is a ton of information on skin care, makeup, body care, etc, but Ms. Banks also includes self-esteem, sex, generosity, self-respect, smoking, alcohol, and more.

I expected a more frivolous book from a supermodel, but this is real quality. Tyra seems like someone you would know. She has such a friendly, sweet attitude reflected in her writing and is so humble.

This book is filled with pictures, lots of color, and is fun to read. Great book!

This book covers everything from pre-teen awkwardness to dating responsibly. Tyra has done an excellent job not only talking the talk but walking the walk! This book should be released and for all to enjoy.

You know what? Model can write a book! Tyra is so down to earth and I found this book very educational although I am in mid twenties. There are a pile of make-up tips, even she gets into the issue of AIDS or relationship that lasts. She is an awesome girl, I tell ya!

This is a perfect book for any teenager girl and deserves a four out of four star **** review. A makeup tip book and a lot more, supermodel Tyra Bank's book gives insight to what it's like to be a supermodel, as well as illustrates her unique, down-to-earth, fun-loving personailty. Chock full of pictures and tidbits of information, this book is garunteed to keep a teenage girl entertained. (Hey, I am one! Plus all my friends are borrowing it now) There is even a picture of Tyra WITHOUT any makeup or airbrushing, and then a picture WITHairbrushing and makeup. (A pretty daring move for a supermodel) The difference is amazing and shows that yes, Tyra is beautiful, and yes, even supermodels have imperfections.

I fell in love with this book since its release and highly recommend it. Sure, it contains tons of photos of Tyra, but this is the very nature of her work, people... HELLOOOOO. And it's obvious this book was going to focus on her by its title, it isn't called 'YOUR Beauty, Inside Out', now is it? Anyways, looking at her never gets boring because the pics are all varying in style and purpose. If you're a fan of Tyra or appreciate sexy-yet-wholesome beauty & personality then you'll cherish this book. It's one-parts autobiography, one-parts pictorial, and 1-parts self-improvement advice, the works mixed together! I get a strong feeling that this was the intention of Banks & Blake and I think it makes for a unique and fun reading experience.

I have a daughter, who is very beautiful. A happy kid and pretty confident. Until middle school that is. She became unsure of herself and did not like her looksas a result of bullying. I bought this book,for her, I was amazed at how my daughter to to it. Tyra goes A to Z in how to take care of yourself and really knows how to relate to young girls. My daughter is a young woman now, She met Ms.Banksand her mom but was not able to tell her how big a part she played in her self esteem going through the roof. Truly if you have a young lady in your household, who you need help in shaping good diet, good fitness habits, great makeup tips (check out the page where Tyra only has makeup on half her face), esteem lifter, this is the book for you! God bless you Tyra, this is her mom saying Thanks!!
