Format: Hardcover
Ladies First is the uplifting story of the author. Queen Latifah is known to be the first female to be a solo rapper and get a record deal. She has also become a top television actress and movie star. She got a Grammy and became the president of her own company. Ladies First is about a girl named Dana Owens who is from Newark, New Jersey and how she becomes Queen Latifah and the things she went through because of a tragic death.
The content of the book is organized pretty well. It starts when her mom, Rita Owens, talking about Queen Latifah's younger days, then moves to Queen Latifah talking about what became of her. The book is quite easy to read. It has vocabulary and slang of a ghetto life style.
The book rates a five stars, as it is extremely interesting to read and written well enough that readers are easily able to become involved. I recommend this book to anyone who listens to her music or understands her lyrics.

I purchased this book initially to get to know more about Dana Owens but instead I learned more about myself. I took my time reading the book because after every chapter or so I had to stop and check myself. I felt as though Queen Latifah was seated in front of me and reading pages from my life. My life does not come close to hers but yet I felt as though it did. I agree that every now and then as women we must stop and do our own personal inventory. Am I who I want to be and is God pleased with who I am?

Format: Paperback
Ladies First is one of the best autobiographies i've read. Queen Latifah tell us all how to be a strong woman, she let's us know we have to think a lot of ourselves no matter the situation. I was so sad when I read about the death of her beloved brother. Looking at the pictures she included in the book I could tell they were very close. I liked the part at the end of the book, when Queen let women know they need to be confident about themselves before they should start dating a guy, and that women need to have more respect for themselves when it come to dating. I think all women should get a copy of Ladies First

I picked up this book on a whim, and was very pleasantly surprised. I stayed up the entire night reading it. Queen Latifah's style can be characterized by an uncensored honesty and remarkable insight for a woman her age. She hits on many important issues for independent women, which transgress racial, class, age and sexual lines. Each chapter has it's own nugget of wisdom ingrained in it that I found inspirational and empowering.
