Summary

Tyra Banks is more than just a pretty face. In addition to working as a model on fashion runways, and magazine covers for years, she is also a competent and determined businesswoman. Her savvy business sense, down-to-earth personality, strong work ethic, and desire to help young women discover their own inner strengths have made her America's Next Top Model reality show and eponymous talk show enormous hits. Banks, however, wasn't always successful. Tall and skinny as a young girl, she felt awkward, ugly, and out of place. Though she grew into her tall frame in high school, her apparent beauty did not guarantee jobs as modeling agencies repeatedly turned her away. Through perseverance and determination, Banks worked her way to become a supermodel, television personality, and household name. In Tyra Banks: Model and Talk Show Host, discover how a shy, insecure girl grew up to be a powerhouse in the entertainment industry.
