Publisher's Summary

Maci Bookout, the reality television megastar of Teen Mom and the New York Times best-selling author of Bulletproof, offers down-to-earth, practical advice on how to navigate life, love, and everything in between.

Since catapulting to reality TV stardom on the hit MTV series Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, Maci Bookout has become a mother of three, a successful businesswoman, and a sought-after motivational speaker - all by the tender age of 25.

As she traveled across the country, speaking to young people and sharing her inspiring story, the one comment Maci kept hearing over and over was, "You're so strong. You make it all look so easy." But Maci was not born "bulletproof." She taught herself to be strong despite her struggles and to turn adversity into advantages.

In I Wasn't Born Bulletproof, best-selling author Maci shares with listeners the truth behind her Teflon exterior and offers fun, inspirational advice for everyone.

Meh

All of this could've gone in the first book I feel like. Nothing great, nothing to write home about

LOVE

Maci really shows the importance of family and everything else in life and has great quotes throughout to help. I love listening to her books because it gives you a sense as if you are having a genuine conversation with a close friend.

Absolutely LOVED IT!

Any additional comments?

I loved this book so much I sent it to two of my friends to read. I love all the life lessons and advice Maci gave, and eye opening ways of thinking about things. Worth the read, 110%.

Painful

I listened to her first book and it was actually pretty good. Her second book is painful to listen to. She talks VERY slow as to enunciate each word and it feels like she just reads quotes from other people most of the time and the other time she's giving her advise, which to me was lacking anything interesting. Bummed me out because I really do like watching her on Teen Mom and like I said before her first book was enjoyable.

Encouraging!

I have recently become a mother to a fantastic little one. This book was encouraging to myself as a mother and even to my husband who has had struggles with depression, anxiety, and the the need for others input in his life. I can already see a difference in our relationship and I'm so thankful for these stories to be the unexpected tool that they were.

Monotone

I couldn’t get past the dry tone. Disappointed to say the least. Wrong choice of narrator

Mind blowing.

The one thing, I loved the most was the sense of respect for others and at the same time remind my self not care about others opinions, because that is exactly what they are opinions. I learn that motherhood is a job not suitable for anyone who can't take criticism and /or mistakes. Gen's teachings left me a sweet and sawer sense of my self but, I loved it.
