Michelle Aguilar's inspiring story goes beyond her grand-prize victory on the immensely popular The Biggest Loser. Becoming Fearless is about having faith in God when you've lost faith in yourself. It is an encouragement to "feel the fear" in any obstacle in life without being paralyzed by it. Finally, it is a story about reconciliation between Michelle and her mother, an exploration of the difficult and freeing work of forgiveness, and a reminder that what you learn on the journey is even more important than the destination.

This was a well-written, easy-read book. Very inspirational and informative, as well. I not only learned alot about Ms. Aguilar's journey of becoming "fearless", but I learned a lot about the production of "The Biggest Loser". I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy non-fiction.more

It begins with the separation of her parents and the sense of rejection that she felt. It continues by describing a bit of her family and childhood and the estrangement between Michelle and her mother. After auditioning for Season 5 of the biggest loser, and being chosen to participate in Season 6, it explores the difficulties and challenges of the reality TV. show.Overall, I found the book to be an inspirational story of healing, family and overcoming difficulties.
