NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this thoughtful and revealing memoir, readers will accompany one of the world’s most recognizable women on her journey of self-discovery.
“I have always felt that life is a solitary journey, that we are each on a train, riding through our hours, our days, our years. We get on alone, we leave alone, and the decisions we make as we travel on the train are our responsibility alone.”
A remarkable life story rooted in two different worlds, Unfinished offers insights into Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s childhood in India; her formative teenage years in the United States; and her return to India, where against all odds as a newcomer to the pageant world, she won the national and international beauty competitions that launched her global acting career. Whether reflecting on her nomadic early years or the challenges she has faced as she has doggedly pursued her calling, Priyanka shares her challenges and triumphs with warmth and honesty. The result is a book that is philosophical, sassy, inspiring, bold, and rebellious. Just like the author herself.
From her dual-continent twenty-year-long career as an actor and producer to her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, from losing her beloved father to cancer to marrying Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s story will inspire a generation around the world to gather their courage, embrace their ambition, and commit to the hard work of following their dreams.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Rising to stardom in both Bollywood and Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra had cross-cultural success that captured the world’s imagination. And that was before she married heartthrob teen idol Nick Jonas! In this fascinating memoir, the multitalented performer lays out exactly how she became one of the world’s most famous women and all the unexpected side effects that came with it. A star in her native India since being crowned Miss World in 2000, Chopra Jonas starred in dozens of hit Hindi films before finding success in the U.S. through the TV series Quantico. We were astounded by the honesty of one headline-worthy anecdote after another about misogyny, body-shaming, and xenophobia in Hollywood. She also gives us an unfiltered view into her private life, like the pain of losing her father and the thrill of her courtship with Jonas. As she tells her story, Chopra Jonas’ frankness makes the audiobook a wonderfully intimate experience. Her unstoppable determination shines through as she kicks down countless barriers to realize her dreams. That’s inspiring in any culture.
I'm so glad she wrote this
I loved her self-focus; it wasn’t salacious and she shared her own journey, growth, grief, vulnerabilities and more throughout. She is amazing!
Inspiring! A true journey of embracing all life has to offer!
