As well as being one of the most popular models of our time, Gisele is also an independent woman, a mother, a wife, lover of family and nature, a volcano of ideas and energy, and a passionate voice for the environment. Nowadays for Gisele Bündchen, being a supermodel comes last on the list of her accolades. Her book Lessons: my path to a meaningful life tells us a lot about her, both past and present. Each chapter is presented as a lesson that Gisele has learned in life, and which she wants to share with us: these lessons include getting to know ourselves, improving the quality of our relationships, learning to appreciate nature and enjoy healthy food, the power of positive thinking, and last, but by no means least, self-discipline.
