Supermodel and mogul, Tyra Banks and her mother, Carolyn London will release their self-help memoir, Perfect is Boring: 10 Things My Crazy, Fierce Mama Taught Me About Beauty, Booty, and Being a Boss on April 3. TarcherPerigee (Penguin Random House) will publish the book.

If you’ve ever followed Banks career, you’d know London is no stranger to the America’s Next Top Model creator’s brand (she’s the CEO of the Tyra Banks Company, FYI). Additionally, Banks is no stranger to the book world. In fact, she penned her first self-help memoir back in 1998, Tyra’s Beauty Inside & Out (published by Harper Perennial). And in 2011, Delacorte Books for Young Readers published Banks’ debut YA novel, Modelland. Check out the trailer for the novel below!

Founded in 2015, TarcherPerigee is an imprint that specializes in self-improvement, creativity, spirituality, and parenting. Some of their successes include Start Where You Are by Meera Patel, The Power of Kindness by Piero Ferrucci,  and Goldie Hawn’s 10 Mindful Minutes.

We at So Booking Cool are fond of the mother-daughter duo aspect of Perfect is Boring.  For more info, visit the official websites and
