Domestic Diva. Media Mogul. Convenient Scapegoat. The life of Martha Stewart—in her own words.
“Without an open-minded mind, you can never be a great success.”
“I catnap now and then, but I think while I nap, so it’s not a waste of time.”
“I want you to know that I am innocent—and that I will fight to clear my name.”
“All the things I love is what my business is all about.”
With her release from prison, Martha Stewart has a new lease on life and her career—and shows no sign of stopping. Love her or hate her, even her critics acknowledge she is a unique success and a true American original in business. As her own words prove well, Martha Stewart can be insightful, candid, irreverent, strategic, no-nonsense, ironic, straightforward, combative, competitive— and most of all—original.
This exclusive collection shares her thoughts on business life and ambition, work and family, being the boss, leadership, creativity, success, privacy, and more—as she confided them to friends and family, as she proclaimed in her writings, speeches, and press conferences, and even when she thought no one was listening.

Domestic Diva. Media Mogul. Convenient Scapegoat.
Martha Stewart has been described in manys ways by many people--fans, friends, and foes alike. But no words are as intriguing as those spoken by the remarkable woman herself. This fascinating new book, compiled by the New York Times bestselling editor of The Kennedy Wit, is the ultimate Martha Stewart collection filled with notable quotes from every dramatic chapter of her amazing life.
This is Martha--in her own words--on running a business, building an empire, making a home, living her life, taking control, taking a fall, and triumphing over adversity.
From model to mother,
from money-maker to mogul,
from tragedy to triumph...
THIS IS MARTHA STEWART--
IN HER OWN WORDS.
Love her or hate her, she is one of the most intriguing and successful celebrities of our time. A one-woman industry known for her fearsome ambition, inviting public demeanor, and tenacious drive, she has built a multi-media empire unlike any other, survived the ups and down of harsh criticism and biting satire, been charged with illegal insider trading, and endured the humiliation of a five-month prison sentence--only to rise to every challenge.
This is the story of Martha Stewart from the woman herself--a fascinating collection of thoughts, musings, strategies, statements, and philosophies drawn from the chapters of her always absorbing life. She shares personal stories of marrying a lawyer, giving birth to a daughter, and her first brushes with success as a model and a stockbroker. She describes how she came to run a small catering business from her restored 1812 farmhouse, and relates a professional journey that would eventually launch the building and management of a worldwide empire.
That empire would soon consist of her own group of bestselling magazines, including Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings, a syndicated television series, dozens of books on cooking and gardening, her own Martha Stewart Collection of K-mart products, and a starring role in a new version of Donald Trump's "The Apprentice." It would create a complex public persona that millions would associate with tasteful creativity, fine living, and a powerful, often challenging personality.
Most interestingly of all, Martha speaks her mind--on her career and family, the nature of her business and ambition, leadership and creativity, fame and fortune, public image and private life. Candid, irreverent, sometimes combative, and always interesting--this is Martha Stewart off the cuff and on the record.
