The instant New York Times bestseller 

Supermodel and philanthropist Gisele Bündchen shares personal stories, insights, and photos to explore lessons that have helped shape her life.

Gisele Bündchen'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 volley player or a veterinarian. But at the age of 14, fate suddenly intervened in in the form of a modeling scout, who spotted her in São Paulo. Four years later, Gisele's appearance in Alexander McQueen's memorably rain-soaked London runway show in the spring 1998 launched her spectacular career as a fashion model, and put an end to the "heroin chic" era of fashion. Since then, Gisele has appeared in almost 400 ad campaigns and on over 1200 magazine covers.  She has walked in more than 470 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 gotten 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 37 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.
Quem é a verdadeira Gisele Bündchen? A supermodelo que durante 15 anos dominou o mundo da moda? Ou a mãe dedicada que defende causas sociais? Desde que começou a pisar as passerelles, Gisele descobriu que a sua versão iluminada pelos holofotes estava longe de corresponder à pessoa que realmente era por dentro. Aos 18 anos, na expectativa de sentir que era mais do que um simples objecto, criou para si própria um escudo protetor: “O meu eu privado era Gisele, mas a modelo Gisele era ela. Era assim que eu a chamava também — ela. Ela era uma atriz. Uma performer. Uma camaleoa. Uma personagem que criei para expressar a fantasia de um estilista.”Uma e outra não se podem separar. Mas neste livro Gisele fala só de uma, a íntima, a verdadeira. A menina que cresceu em Horizontina, no Sul do Brasil, na companhia de cinco irmãs. A moça desajeitada, desconfortável com o próprio corpo, descoberta por um olheiro aos 14 anos. A mãe de dois filhos e mulher de uma superestrela do futebol americano, que enfrentou na vida muitos dissabores.É essa a Gisele que encontramos aqui. E que nos conta, em jeito de legado para os filhos, os seus altos e baixos - e tudo o que fez para se tornar melhor. Fala-nos das oito lições que a vida lhe ensinou, como a necessidade de ter disciplina ou os benefícios do auto-conhecimento; pelo meio, a supermodelo fala ainda da importância da meditação na sua vida, das lições que aprendeu com a natureza, do incrível poder dos pensamentos, do respeito que o corpo pede e merece...Lições – O Meu Caminho Para uma Vida Com Sentido é um livro lindo, colorido, positivo, confessional. O livro de uma mulher que soube usar a sua beleza extraordinária para conquistar o mundo. E que agora retribui a graça, espalhando uma mensagem de gratidão que assume várias formas, mas que começa e acaba sempre com a mesma palavra: amor.
